Feature Case: October 2018 Nexus Plus

Oct. 30, 2018

Nexus Plus Titanium + Acrylic Overlay

The client has requested a fixed implant hybrid to be designed for the mandibular arch on 5 implants. This case also required the incorporation of full contour metal posterior teeth designed to increase strength in the posterior and distal extensions, due to patient being a severe bruxer and limited inter-occlusal space. Based on the requirements a Nexus plus was chosen. The characteristics of this arrangement allowed for a profile that will incorporate a precision milled implant bar with an aesthetic Tooth overlay. The design also allows for full contour metal posterior teeth to be milled directly into the bar as a complete mono-bloc. This will significantly help with resistance to wear over time considering the patients parafunctional activity.
