The Very Dental Podcast Network

Alan welcomes back Dr. Mark Whitefield to talk about some interesting developments in full arch fixed implant restorations! Mark has been developing a new way to approach restoring full arch fixed implant restorations that involves less bone reduction, less cost and no screws! 

  • Implant treatment has been driven by technology
  • Screws are the weak point of full arch fixed implant restorations
  • ZircOnX has no screws that go into the restoration which allows for keeping more bone and no holes through zirconia
  • Implant angulation is less important in this system
  • Multi Unti Abutment (MUA) driven
  • They are attached with a "Locator like" snap that is not removed by the patient
  • Digital OR analog workflow
  • The ZircOnX workflow
  • No screw channels = stronger restoration
  • Why less bone removal?
  • ZircOnX cost breakdown
  • The system allows for a plan B
  • What does the kit look like?
