Zirconia arches have gained popularity in the field of dentistry, particularly for full mouth reconstruction procedures, due to their numerous benefits. Full mouth reconstruction, also known as full arch reconstruction, is a comprehensive dental restoration that aims to restore the entire upper or lower set of teeth. Zirconia arches have become a preferred choice for this process, and here are some of the significant benefits they offer and why we use zirconia arches for our ORA4X restorations.
Zirconia arches are highly aesthetic and closely mimic the appearance of natural teeth. Their translucent quality and tooth-colored shade make them an excellent choice for full mouth reconstruction, as they can provide a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Zirconia is also highly stain-resistant, which means the arches maintain their color and appearance over time. This is especially valuable for full mouth reconstructions, as it ensures a lasting, white smile that does not discolor with age or staining substances.
Zirconia is renowned for its strength and durability. It is one of the hardest materials used in dentistry, making it exceptionally resistant to wear and tear. Zirconia arches can withstand the forces of chewing and biting, ensuring they remain functional and intact for an extended period. When combined with titanium implants, the result is a new smile that can last a lifetime.
Zirconia is a biocompatible material, which means it is well-tolerated by the body and poses minimal risk of allergic reactions or adverse tissue responses. This makes it a safe option for dental restorations, even for those with sensitivities or allergies to certain metals. Also, unlike some traditional dental materials, zirconia arches have a low allergenic potential.
Excellent Fit and Precision
Zirconia arches can be fabricated with a high level of precision, ensuring an excellent fit and minimal gaps. This accuracy helps in achieving a comfortable and functional bite, reducing the risk of discomfort or complications. We customize each of our OraZir zirconia arches at our on-site dental laboratory.
Ease of Maintenance
Zirconia arches are relatively easy to maintain. They do not require any special cleaning procedures beyond regular oral hygiene practices like brushing and flossing. This simplifies maintenance for patients with full mouth reconstructions.
The aesthetic appeal and natural appearance of zirconia arches can significantly boost a patient’s self-confidence. Patients are more likely to smile and engage socially without feeling self-conscious about their dental restorations.
Zirconia arches have become the preferred choice for full mouth reconstruction procedures due to their exceptional aesthetic, durability, biocompatibility, and ease of maintenance. These restorations offer numerous benefits, including a natural appearance, longevity, and minimal tooth reduction.
