Dental Treatment and Prosthetics Without Implants

Fixed Dentures on Glass Abutment System ZX-27


When there are teeth missing in the mouth cavity this seriously disturbes the proper bit and chewing harmony. In cases when there are few or inappropriately located teeth to support the bridge construction of the dentures, most commonly removable partial protheses are applyed, but they are widely found as inconvenient. Implants could be used instead, but this requires surgery, and is often too stressing to the patient. The modern solution of the problem is the Attractive Glass Abutment System ZX-27 – an invention by Hungarian dental technitian Laszlo Nemeth, that was given a patent back in 1991.

The essence of that new method is that patients who still have some own teeth and don't like to have partial removable prostheses, nor yet to mount implants in the mouth, they are still able to build a long-lasting and durable fixed bridge construction, in other words prostheses or dentures.

The Attractive Glass Abutment System ZX-27 are made of chemically treated glass so that it goes in contact to the mucosa of the jaw without any problems. The little glass abutments are being mount to the prosthesis itself and are simple replacement of missing own teeth, that would support the denture. This new method of treatment works effectively in cases when rear chewing teeth are missing or even if combined with implants.

You are welcome to get known in depth to the Attractive Glass Abutment System ZX-27, presented here in technological and clinical tests and analysis in these brochures (in PDFPDF) in English, German, Italian, Greek and Russian language.

Dr. Stavreva practices treatment for unilateral or bilateral unlimited dental rows through supporting prosthesis on Glass Abutment System ZX-27. Instead of using movable or removable dentures, treatment is solved by bridge structures. Masticatory pressure is redistributed over all teeth, as those with impaired parodont are discharged. The process of resorption of alveolar bone decrease after splinting. Through this very simple and effective method of dentures on Attractive Glass Abutment System ZX-27 surgery to mount implants is avoided, and prosthesis is reliable and stable. This makes the cost of treatment about 3 times lower compared to dentures over implants.

Here are some of the cases of Dr. Stavreva for dentures on the Attractive Glass Abutment System ZX-27:

The teeth that support the bridge in this case:  12 ,  11 ,  21 ,  22  and  23  are constructed by pinlei for greater stability and strength of the future bridge construction. Since the patient is a young lady, it has been selected prosthesis system on Attractive Glass Abutment System ZX-27. The glass support is inserted in the field of  26 . It is a denture on bridge structure with a metal arch stabilization.

Before treatment dental formula was as follows:

 

The lower jaw is of interest in this case. After extraction of  41  and  42 , teeth supporting the bridge remain only four:  44 ,  31 ,  33  and  34 . Two ZX-27 glass supports are placed for the lower jaw in two prostheses with arc stabilization, for the upper and lower jaw, respectively.

After treatment the dental formula looks like this:

 

Treatment was finished on December 22, 2008. The X-ray inspection is from June 28, 2010. The patient has very good spirits, she eats and chews normally.

Since the patient is a young lady, it has been selected prosthesis system on Attractive Glass Abutment System ZX-27. There are two glass supports inserted in the fields of  24  and  26 . It is a denture on bridge structure of glass-ceramics with an arch stabilization.

Dental status after treatment, completed September 17, 2011, looks like this:

 

It is clear that in this case WE CAN PROSTHESIS WITHOUT IMPLANTS and without removable dentures.
