Hey everyone ,

I thought I would share what I consider to be the best for full arch fixed implant retained restorations. The BDT screw retained bridge. Some of you might know it. Frame is a HPP , teeth are lithium disilicate and gingiva is composite. By far the easiest and faster full arch restoration in my lab. He is the latest one I made. Ready to be fitted .

Why BDT? What does that stand for?

Looks pretty

BDT = Burn-out Denture Tooth.

Very interesting concept and Trchnique. I attended the course at the beginning of July at Bill Connell's lab in Jupiter, FL.

I'd heard of it, just hadn't put it and the initialism together. Thanks.

There is a how to article on this technique in (I think) Spectrum Dialogue magazine from a couple of months ago.

They have 5-6 years cases in the mouth . Working solid ! Try it ! As long as you don't violate the material's limitations it will work

We got about fifty cases delivered in the last two years of this type ( my development, not BDT ) still holding...fingers crossed :D Have used emax, Zr and acrylic teeth...getting close to fully digitize the production (minus the gingival part).

i still dont see what's being burned out - but we do pekkton sub structures with ceramic crowns and pink quite a bit, am i missing something here? are they burning out the the denture teeth set up and pressing the shape?

yeah but not likely into ingots with multi or varying shade like emax. probably something more uniform to have a sort of frame over peek, and wax/press final veneers individually.

a giant cavity of burnt out denture shape would be ridiculous to control shade without further segregation.

yeah i figured they would section it and press it as such off a matrix

i just don't see how this is less time consuming than doing the whole design in Exocad or 3Shape

It's favored by the Copymill luddites.
At the risk of being tarred and feathered, I find these constructions always strike me as a whole lot of make work for C&B guys, as most screw retained arches are fabricated in removables labs.

By setting up the denture teeth, you have something to test the bite with a try-in.. The cad alternative I guess would be milling PMMA teeth and pressing them.

... one of the best techniques for implant supported arches .... does it take longer than say a full arch all zirconia with layered ceramic ... maybe ....is there multiple steps and different materials to acquire ....yes ... but this is why i like this solution . 1. retrievable. 2. you can make changes to the tissue if the patients gums remodel . 3. If a crown chips or breaks during service .... you only have to replace that crown . 4. the polymer frame has some tiny amount of give . 5 . aesthetics are limitless . can be done analog and digital . the BDT technique and Arians telescopic technique are in my mind the best for the patient overall hygiene with aesthetic and function . .
