There are different methods of producing full arch C&B prosthetic. One is to fabricate individual porcelain crowns and cement to a zirconia, chrome cobalt or a titanium milled substructure. Other methods are to mill a full zirconia bridge FP1 style that meet the implants if possible, or meets MUA abutments, or perhaps on custom abutments. ROE can fabricate many designs. Imaged here is a full C&B zirconia bridge.

C&B Implant Bridge. Most of these methods require strategic placement of implants, verified casts, specific impressions, and prototype try-ins for confirmation of fit, esthetics, passivity, function.

  • Screw retained fixed design
  • Milled or cast substructure veneered with porcelain
  • Implant location and vertical dimension must be ideal

Prosthodontic Classification

TypeFixed/RemovableDescription
FP1
Fixed prosthesisReplaces only the clinical crown; looks like a natural tooth.
FP2Fixed prosthesisReplaces the crown and a portion of the root; crown contour appears normal in the occlusal half but is elongated or hypercontoured in the gingival half.
FP3Fixed prosthesisReplaces missing crowns and gingival color and portion of the edentulous site; prosthesis most often uses denture teeth and acrylic gingiva, but maybe porcelain to metal, or zirconia.
RP4Removable prosthesisOverdenture that is completely implant-supported, no soft tissue support.
RP5Removable prosthesisOverdenture supported by both soft tissue (primary) and implant (secondary). The primary stress-bearing areas are maintained in the prosthesis (maxilla—residual ridge and horizontal palate; mandible— the line should not begin with a dash. Please move the elements on the last two lines to ensure this doesn’t happen. buccal shelf)
