“Retrospectively analysed, the long-term success rate of two-piece ceramic implants has been around 97% over all, with a very low incidence (approximately 8%) of peri-implantitis”, Dr. Jacobi-Gresser points out.
Two generations of Zeramex® Ceramic Dental Implants: Zeramex P6 and Zeramex XT. Zeramex Ceramic Implant Systems: A true game-changer for durability and strength
This case by the University of Toledo Department of Dentistry was a great example of how zirconia implants are a quality choice for an esthetic biomaterial in the cosmetic zone.
he University of Toledo Department of Dentistry strives to improve the health in the communities and region they serve. Educating excellent clinicians and scientists, and providing patient centered and high-quality care, and also producing nationally recognized research.
With new emerging technology, ceramic implants are some of the most innovative products that provide an alternative to traditional titanium implants. They have been shown to be strong, aesthetic, and peri-implant-tissue friendly, as well as a metal-free option. Some of the modern ceramic implant systems, such as Zeramex XT (Dentalpoint AG), allow for a metal-free solution for long-term success. This offers a choice to those patients who have a titanium sensitivity or otherwise wish to use a nonmetal solution. 1-3 In the cosmetic zone (maxillary anterior region), placing any type of implant can be challenging, especially with adjacent natural teeth.
Ceramic implants have become firmly established in dental implantology. Patient demand for metal-free solutions is increasing, and the development of new biomaterials, microrough surface techniques and improved treatment protocols have enabled practices to use zirconia dental implants as a reliable treatment alternative to titanium implants. In this case report, the replacement of a mandibular posterior tooth with a zirconium oxide implant is described.
Dr. Carl Pogoncheff’s first full arch case using Zeramex implants. The case included eight Zeramex implants on the maxillary arch and one implant for an edentulous area on the mandible.
Dr. Miguel Stanley, Founder and Designated Implantology Expert at White Clinic in Portugal, shared with us an exciting case of implant treatment with Zeramex XT at position 21 and 11.
In the article entitled “Diameter-reduced two-part ceramic implants for narrow gaps in the aesthetic zone” , Dr. Gupta shared his experience in using Zeramex XT (SB 3.5 mm, 12 mm), which is intended for narrow gaps in the lower jaw front and for lateral incisors.
