This hybrid option was chosen as it provides both high esthetics and strength. It offers one of the highest flexural strengths (1200 MPa), making it the optimal choice to endure heavy occlusal loads.
Also, ZIRMAX M has the following benefits:
- Provides patients with the closest feel to natural dentition
- Provides one of the most durable options not likely to chip
- Over ten years of clinical success
The new restoration was tied in by using the one-screw test. This is a test done to check the fit of multiple implant-retained dental restorations. This is completed by using a single screw in one abutment and then evaluating the opposite side. The fit is analyzed both clinically and by radiograph to ensure there is no rise and that a passive fit has been achieved. Poorly fitting multi-unit restorations can cause the following:
- Poor overall function
- Implants and framework placed under unnecessary stress
- Poor bone resorption
This case revealed a passive fit, required zero adjustments, and the occlusion was impeccable. The patient was thrilled with the results.
