STRENGTH YOU CAN RELY ON:
The new generation of ZERAMEX® ceramic implants set themselves apart by their very high material strength.
The implant and the abutment are made of highly compressed zirconium dioxide blanks and meet the high requirements for strength, biomechanical stability and accuracy of fit. ZERAMEX® zirconia dental implants are also corrosion resistant and do not conduct electricity or heat.
A STRONG, METAL-FREE CONNECTION:
A high-strength and form-fit, absolutely stress-free.
Zeramex screw-retained ceramic-ceramic connection is created using the carbon fibre-reinforced VICARBO® screw. The design of the connection was developed to minimize bacteriological colonization or deposit.
HIGH-PERFORMANCE CARBON TECHNOLOGY VICARBO®:
High bonding strength is achieved with the new carbon-ceramic technology. The core is the VICARBO® screw made of carbon-fibre-reinforced high-performance threads.
It is distinguished by enormous isoelastic properties and has clear strengths: metal-free, biocompatible according to ISO10993 for long-term implants. Modulus of elasticity: >160 GPa., tensile strength: 2.000 MPa. (Comparison: Titanium grade 5: Modulus of elasticity: 114 GPa., tensile strength: 1,100 MPa.)
WHITER THAN TITANIUM:
The 100 percent metal-free ceramic implants come very close to the natural model of a tooth root in BOTH aesthetics and function.
They are highly biocompatible, completely free of metallic corrosion and conduct neither electricity nor heat. Titanium can release titanium ions that can accumulate in the surrounding soft tissue and cause inflammation. When exposed to surface bacteria the corrosion resistance of titanium can also be reduced. These effects are completely excluded by using metal-free implants.

The two-part, reversible screw design enables the ZERAMEX® dental implant to offer a wide prosthetic flexibility while remaining a simple and clear system.
Work with the usual procedures and offer all-ceramic, screw-retained restorations. With the upcoming integration into the Exocad and 3Shape CADCAM systems, you will also benefit from the advantages of a digital workflow.
100% METAL-FREE SOLUTION FOR LONG-TERM SUCCESS:
With ZERAMEX® you can rely on completely metal-free dental implant systems, whose benefits have been demonstrated in countless studies.
MINIMIZING RISK FACTORS:
Long-term studies show that peri-implantitis is a risk of implant treatment.
Peri-implantitis can lead to loss of the implant if not treated. The ZERAMEX® implant can help to minimize certain risk factors of peri-implantitis:
MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE:
Various studies show the very good osseointegration and positive long-term results of ceramic implants.
The case study of Oliva shows successful 5-year data, Manzano concludes that there is no significant difference in Bone Implant Contact (BIC) between titanium and ceramic implants. Very good osseointegration of the ZERAFIL™ surface was documented with the ZERAMEX® system and a success rate of approx. 98% was reported. The research group of Prof. A. Mombelli could not detect any peri-implant infections after three years.
