Rosen screw powerball screw MUA

rosen screws

What are Rosen and Powerball screws? Direct to MUA screws, like Rosen screws and Powerball screws, allow direct to MUA connection without the titanium base (titanium chimney). These screws ideally allow for the elimination of the titanium base or titanium chimney in an all on x prosthesis. Why direct to MUA? The argument for these […]

Zirconia framework fracture

zirconia framework fracture

Zirconia framework fracture Zirconia framework fracture is certainly a very bad day!  A zirconia framework fracture would result in the entire prosthesis needing to be remade.  A considerable amount of time and money would have gone into this prosthesis.  One thing for sure is that the thickness of material around the screw access holes is […]

Zirconia framework for implant supported hybrid denture – crowns too! How are they milled?

zirconia all-on-4 implant supported

Zirconia framework and zirconia milling Zirconia framework option for an all on 4 can be a great framework option for an all on 4. The properties of  zirconia make it one of the most common dental ceramic in use.  It’s strong, like really strong, and the esthetics are improving. Zirconia framework milling for an all […]

Laboratory work for Zirconia substructure CAD CAM

zirconia all-on-4 implant supported

CAD CAM laboratory work for Zirconia substructures Laboratory work for Zirconia substructures is more technique and product sensitive than some of the other options. We must take great care must in product selection and fabrication of zirconia substructures. <–5th post  6th in a series of 17 on topic  Next post–> Laboratory work for zirconia substructures […]
