Abstract: Osseointegration has a successful track record, however some recent developments have included reduced prosthesis loading times and development of new prosthetic materials. Today’s clinician has several new materials to choose from compared to the past. A thorough understanding of the material properties is critical to selecting the appropriate material for the patient using an evidence-based protocol. This case report demonstrates patient rehabilitation with a monolithic zirconia complete arch prosthesis supported by endosseous dental implants. The rationale and clinical decision making as to why this was the optimal treatment will be discussed in detail for this patient.
