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. 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.
