Titanium bar + Translucent Zirconia Overlay

Client design brief: The client has requested a fixed prosthesis on six Strauman implants with labial inclined anterior implant positions.

The case requires a telescopic Titanium Bar with a Translucent Zirconia Overlay, which is intended to be resin-cement bonded and permanently retained to the Bar.

Client design brief: The client has requested a fixed prosthesis on six Strauman implants with labial inclined anterior implant positions. Based on these requirements we chose the Nexus Plus bar and Trans Zr superstructure. This design incorporates monolithic posterior teeth and labial reduction from 13 to 23 for porcelain layering. Hygienic tissue relationship was incorporated in the design and Bi-axial angled screw channels were required and applied on selected implants.
