Attendees enjoyed full lectures, heated discussions, collegiate exchange, and lasting learnings, which characterized the congress as a success. The conclusion drawn was that the future of dentistry is natural, white, and digital, which suggests that ceramic implants will be an essential part of dentistry in the future.
“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.
Zeramex takes pride in the production process of their Ceramic Zirconia dental implants. The process begins with the selection of high-grade zirconia powder, which is transformed into hard zirconium oxide ATZ (Alumina Toughened Zirconia) blanks using hot isostatic pressing. This advanced technique ensures that the blanks are strong and durable, able to withstand the rigors of the manufacturing process.
In her 10-Year Follow-Up of Zeramex Ceramic Implant Therapy: Aesthetic and Functional Results That Stand the Test of Time, Dr. Elisabeth Jacobi-Gresser presents the impressive long-term results of Zeramex ceramic implant therapy.
The ZERAMEX Classic is a predecessor model of Zeramex XT. Despite being introduced more than 10 years ago, it continues to demonstrate excellent osseointegration and stable bone levels. It is a groundbreaking product in the field of metal-free implantology. It has proven to be a reliable and effective solution for patients looking for a stable, long-lasting dental implant.
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.
