Abstract:

The advent of CADCAM dentistry has yielded several advantages over traditional dental workflows. Narrowing the focus on implant-supported prosthesis, the Ti-Base and ScanPost system from Sirona Charlotte, NC have made possible the fabrication of a ceramic implant abutment and prosthesis without the need of a traditional impression and cast.1 Joda et al. showed that this workflow decreased the cost to patient by 30 and halved the laboratory workload.2CADCAM technology is compatible with multiple restorative materials. For the posterior region, high occlusal forces have required materials with high fracture strengths and zirconia has been traditionally shown as an effective material for abutment and restoration of implants in this critical region.3-5 Zirconia also features high biocompatibility as well as more acceptable esthetics compared to metallic restorations.3
