This video is going to discuss seating a final zirconia bridge. And the reason this is unique is because of the copings. This particular bridge is multi-unit on the anterior two, and it is direct implant on the distal, on the posterior two. And what that means is that there are no copings direct to MUA. This goes, the final zirconia will sit on the MUA with a screw. Okay, the direct implant have an insert. And let me, let’s, let’s just talk about this for a minute. This little insert here, it’s a gold colored and it is just a press fit. Well, that one’s in there pretty good. It’s press fit. It is not cemented. And so we have a assortment of screws here. The long screws go with the posterior coping. The short screws are regular, regular Nobels prosthetic screws. So let’s just take one of these out of the container and we’ll press fitted into the prosthesis and show you how simple it is.

So the laboratory should have already made sure that these fit, but clinically you’ll want to seat these in yourself so you know how they feel, how they fit, and they just simply press fit in. See if I can get that in there. They have a little tab that puts outward pressure. There we go. Like that. Okay, press fit and you can hear the click. So these will stay in when you’re delivering it to the mount. No cement, nothing to hold those in, except friction. All right then four screw holes, deliver. And not really, nothing else to do except cover up the holes. All right, so that is a Nobel Procera FP2 design prosthesis.
