Prosthesis Avoids Chips, Fractures, and Premature Wear

Richard Gawel


Glidewell has unveiled a new aesthetic formulation of its BruxZir Implant Prosthesis, which is a durable, lifelike alternative to the acrylic hybrid denture, according to the company. The BruxZir Esthetic Implant Prosthesis, which features superior translucency paired with a high flexural strength of 870 MPa, is constructed of 100% solid zirconia, Glidewell says. And like the original version of the product, it is engineered to avoid chips, fractures, and premature wear, the company says.


With this addition to the BruxZir line, clinicians have an option for edentulous implant patients with high aesthetic expectations without the risk of fracturing the veneering material used in most premium full-arch zirconia restorations, Glidewell says. The original BruxZir Implant Prosthesis, fabricated from BruxZir Full-Strength Zirconia, is recommended for patients with parafunctional habits, a strong bite, or a history of damaging dental restorations.
