This book is about zirconia dental implants, cutting-edge aspect of Teeth Tomorrow. Even today, many dentists, surgeons and implantologists are making the final bridge out of acrylic. Acrylic is like a denture, meaning it has denture teeth that are made out of plastic. This is the problem: they chip, break, and wear down. The cutting-edge aspect of zirconia is that it won’t chip, break or fall apart. In fact, Frank gives his patients a five-year guarantee right off-the-bat. As time goes by, it will probably be a ten-year guarantee, because he knows that these things aren’t going to fall apart.
We also know from published research that zirconia implants don’t chip and break, which is the bottom-line about this cutting-edge technology. There are not a lot of dentists that are doing these Prettau Zirconia bridges. Many are still choosing to do the traditional acrylic bridges, and we all know what happens. This book deals with almost every aspect of zirconia implants, from beginning of the process till the end.
