Prof. Sammy Noumbissi (USA)

Pr. Sammy Noumbissi obtained his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from Howard University in Washington DC. He was then selected to attend the prestigious Loma Linda University Graduate Program in Implant Dentistry. There he received three years of formal training in dental implantology which culminated with a certificate in Implant Dentistry and a Master of Science degree in Implant Surgery.

He is a researcher, author and has published on ceramic implants in peer reviewed dental journals. He is a visiting professor at the University of Milan, Italy and visiting researcher at INSA Lyon in France.

Pr. Noumbissi is the founder and current president of the International Academy of Ceramic Implantology (IAOCI) which is an independent association focused on metal free and ceramic implantology.

He is a fellow and Ambassador at the Clean Implant Foundation whose mission is to assess production quality and purity of commercially available dental implant surfaces.

Pr. Noumbissi has been practicing and educating dentists on metal free implantology since 2009. His practice is located in Silver Spring, Maryland USA.

“ZIRCONIA CERAMIC DENTAL IMPLANTS ARE HERE TO STAY: TEN YEARS OF SCIENTIFIC AND CLINICAL OBSERVATION” – 2020 EACim congress

Lecture Abstract:

Polycrystalline bioceramics such as zirconia composites thanks to their physical properties, inertness, hypo-allergenicity and superior aesthetics have emerged as the materials of choice for manufacturing implants used for metal free replacement of teeth. However there remains limitations as to where, when and how ceramic implants can be used with predictability and success.

This presentation will introduce the audience to ten years of clinical and scientific experience pointing to the role of implant materials, design as factors in the choice of implant systems in specific cases of teeth replacement. A wide range of clinical cases will be presented correlating scientific evidence and clinical findings over ten years.
