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. The patient did thorough research on the replacement of his missing teeth with implants, and desired a metal-free solution. After researching all of the different metal-free implant systems he contacted Zeramex to find a qualified surgeon in his area to take on his case. Dr. Pogoncheff’s excellence with placing these implants was very much appreciated by his patient, and I look forward to continuing watching this patient’s smile transform in the coming months.
ABOUT ZERAMEX® XT
ZERAMEX®XT has a tapered design allowing optimal primary stability. The internal connection has been specifically engineered to maximize the strength of rigid zirconia and eliminate any lateral forces on zirconia.
The precise fitting components offer variable placement close to bone level for enhanced restorative margin. The heart of the connection is the VICARBO® screw. Comprised of many individual threads of carbon fiber that run vertically, uncut down the length of the screw to durably absorb the tensile forces and give the VICARBO® screw its exceptionally high strength.
