Feature Case: June 2019 Wrap Around

June 6, 2019

Wrap Around Hybrid

The client has requested a fixed implant hybrid to be designed for the mandibular arch on 6 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 Titanium wrap around was chosen. The characteristics of this arrangement allowed for a profile that will incorporate a precision milled implant bar with individual tooth retention.

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 para-functional activity.
