Carbon-Fiber Framework for Full-Arch Implant-Supported Fixed Dental Prostheses Supporting Resin-Based Composite and Lithium Disilicate Ceramic Crowns: Case Report and Description of Features
This case report presents a new approach for shock-absorbing carbon-fiber composite frameworks for full-arch implant-supported fixed dental prostheses supporting resin-based and lithium disilicate ceramic crowns. It describes the characteristics of the materials used, the procedures for implementing the framework, and the requirements to achieve the best mechanical and clinical properties. The result is a full-arch prosthesis with masticatory load shockabsorption capacities, chemical bonding between materials, good esthetics, and wear similar to natural enamel. A 24-month follow-up full-arch bimaxillary implantsupported rehabilitation, performed with computer-guided surgery, is described.
