“Benefits of Zirconia ceramic in the prevention of peri-implantitis” – 2019 EACim congress
Lecture Abstract :
Titanium implants have undergone a tremendous technological evolution in recent years. However, the prevalence of peri-implantitis raises the question of the reliability of these long-term implant treatments.
New studies reveal the presence of bacteria coupled to metal particles in the tissue environment around a contaminated implant.
The properties of zirconia related to its safety and low bacterial retention, significantly reduce the risk of peri-implantitis.
In addition, its colour improves the aesthetic appearance of long-term restorations.
