Dr. Carl Pogoncheff's first full arch case using Zeramex Implants
Dr. Carl Pogoncheff is a talented board-certified prosthodontist that performs the most complex oral surgeries. He has tremendous experience with Zeramex Ceramic implants, and as a surgical specialist-he was able to restore his patients smile with Zeramex, a completely metal-free system.
The most important aspect of this case was the patient’s desire to have a completely metal free smile, and he did thorough research on the replacement of his missing teeth with zirconia implants. After researching all of the different metal-free implant systems he found Dr. Pogoncheff on the Zeramex Find-A-Dentist free referral page to find a qualified surgeon in his area to take on his case.
The case included nine Zeramex implants on the maxillary arch and one implant for an edentulous area on the mandible. Dr. Pogoncheff’s excellence with placing these implants resulted in a great functional and aesthetic outcome for his patient- achieving so with a completely metal free approach.
