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

Giuseppe Castorina, DDS, Level II Master in Implant Prosthesis

PMID: 29244887
DOI: 10.11607/prd.2964

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 shock-absorption capacities, chemical bonding between materials, good esthetics, and wear similar to natural enamel. A 24-month follow-up full-arch bimaxillary implant-supported rehabilitation, performed with computer-guided surgery, is described.
