Chewing Simulator, Version 3.1.29, Willytech, Munich, Germany. Testing simulated the clinical performance of the materials over a time period of approximately 5 years.

The comparative wear study, which compared the wear of BruxZir Solid Zirconia and Ceramco®3, found BruxZir to be favorable with barely detectable wear.

Glidewell Laboratories, industry-leading provider of dental lab products and services, announced today the findings of its latest BruxZir wear study. The comparative wear study, which compared the wear of BruxZir Solid Zirconia (Glidewell Laboratories; Newport Beach, Calif.) and Ceramco®3 (Dentsply Ceramco; Burlington, NJ), found BruxZir to be favorable with barely detectable wear.

The study, carried out by respected dental materials and technology expert Professor Dr. Jürgen Geis-Gerstorfer, was conducted at University of Tubingen, Germany, where he is a professor in the Department of Prosthodontics. With samples of each product, Dr. Geis-Gerstorferb used the Willytech Chewing Simulator to examine the clinical performance of the material over a simulation period of five years. He concluded: "After 1.2 million wear cycles under a load of 50 N (~ 50 kg), BruxZir revealed barely detectable wear."
