Aesthetic failures and problem awareness of corrosion and galvanism due to the mixing of metals in Dentistry ,result in metal – environment interaction and jeopardizes the long term viability of the prostheses – implants in the mouth. New technologies have been implied for the production of improved and innovative materials and techniques that cover the full spectrum of Dentistry

The applications until now are:

A new type of revolutionary biocompatible ZV3 zirconia biphasic implant, with possibilities for individual planning of its shape according to the anatomical needs. Exceptional aesthetics due to the color and papilla formation as a result of the shape of the implant. Simplified prosthetic rehabilitation with the use of a cemented prefabricated post mimicking the prosthetics of the natural tooth. Ergonomy and easy laboratory handling.

Metal Free High Precision and Performance polymers, Dentalos and Flexistrong, applicable in Implantology as well as General Prosthetic Dentistry for the construction of aesthetic prostheses.

Other properties: corrosion and fracture resistance, plaque inhibition, color maintenance, and in situ repair.

CAD – CAM technology in the office with Lyra System. That includes a scanner, a milling machine and a porcelain oven. After scanning of the mouth, the design of the prostheses is made by professionals in a central center and sent back to the dentist via mail. The CAD CAM machine cuts after the design and the oven provides the final details and glaze. Prostheses are ready in the office in 1:30 hour after scanning.

Laboratory procedures include handling of the biphasic ZV3 implant and its post as well as construction of metal free crowns, bridges, partial prostheses and full dentures. Working steps for injection machine and CAD CAM technology for blancs.

Clinical application of ZV3 by fabric zirconia implant. Post, fabrication and high polimer crown CAD-CAM with LYRA SYSTEMS in the Office
