Glidewell Laboratories has announced that BruxZir® Solid Zirconia crowns and bridges have passed the five-year mark in clinical usage, and have reached this milestone with over five million units prescribed by U.S. dentists.
Even as BruxZir Solid Zirconia passed the one-year and two-year marks with good results from respected clinical studies, many dentists remained curious about how material might perform over extended years of clinical service.
Now, five years later, BruxZir Solid Zirconia is reportedly one of the most prescribed brands of full-contour zirconia restorations. Engineered to create restorations demonstrating high strength and a vital translucence, BruxZir Solid Zirconia has given dental professionals the option of replacing their bilayer restorations with a high-strength, esthetic monolithic option.
HOW BRUXZIR BEGAN:
The newest addition to the BruxZir brand is the Full-Arch Implant Prosthesis, a fixed, all-zirconia implant solution for edentulous patients desiring a more durable and esthetic replacement for removable dentures. Constructed from 100 percent BruxZir Solid Zirconia, this full-arch restoration is designed to offer superior fracture toughness and reportedly exhibits flexural strength up to 1,465 MPa.
