Surgery on teeth #7 and #10
IAOCI Founder and President Dr. Sammy Noumbissi, DDS, MS used the ZERAMEX XT 3.5 – The Cosmetic Implant in one of his patients.
The ZERAMEX XT 3.5 Implant is designed for anterior aesthetics. It displays superior aesthetics because of its white color and small size. Even in the thinnest tissue type the 3.5 mm implants offer natural tooth color and will never show any metallic color.
For this case, patient presented needed replacement for teeth #7 and #10. The ZERAMEX XT 3.5, The Cosmetic Implant, was selected by Dr. Sammy Noumbissi, president of the IAOCI. Because it is small in diameter, the ZERAMEX XT 3.5 is the smallest, metal-free, Zirconia implant available on the market in the United States. It is also two-piece and screw retained providing a high level of aesthetics.
Treatment planning for the anterior can always be difficult. In this case, the TwinGuide treatment planning and guided surgery. Treatment planning and precision is very important when doing surgery in the anterior part of the mouth. In this instance, the TwinGuide was selected for guided surgery preparation. A digital scan of the patient was taken prior to surgery. TwinGuide developed a guided system so that the implants will be place in the appropriate position.
