Featured on the front cover is our latest Ceramic Dental Implant, ZERAMEX®XT. A two piece, screw-retained system that functions surgically and restorative like current titanium implants. The current product offer has restorative flexibility with multiple abutment choices and will soon have scan bodies and a complete digital workflow with fully customized prosthetics.It is tapered in design, has an internal connection and the unique VICARBO® screw creates a seal against bacteria and micromovement. Modern ceramic implants now offer the same ease of use as current titanium implants.
Also featured in the April 2020 issue is the case presentation of Dr. med. dent. Jens Tartsch, DMD featuring ZERAMEX® XT.
This case involved a simple placement of an implant in a site with adequate bone in an overall healthy patient. The case is significant in that it was the first case ever done worldwide using the ZERAMEX XT Ceramic Implant System.
It shows a ZERAMEX XT 4.2 x 10mm implant placed in a healed extraction and grafted site. The implant placement was done 4 months post tooth extraction and grafting. The implant was restored using the VICARBO Carbon Fiber screw and zirconia abutment. At one year follow up, the implant shows no peri-implant inflammation. No movement or bone loss can be observed.
This case was done in Zurich Switzerland by Dr. Jens Tartsch. Dr. Tartsch practices in Zurich Switzerland and is a founding father of the European Society of Ceramic Implants. ESCI is a connection between industry leaders and clinical users of ceramic implants working together to create the designs, and technologies for proven future success.

Ceramic Implants are an emerging OPPORTUNITY and NOW is the time

Modern ceramic implants have come along way from the monocrystalline alumina implants during the Branemark’s days. Now made of Zirconia Oxide(Zr02), they are no longer one piece, smooth or difficult to place or restore.
