Zirconia Implants today. This webinar provides an overview of the options available today with ceramic implants to enable every user to realize a safe restoration with ceramic implants even in difficult situations and to benefit from this excellent material.
Ceramic implants made of stable zirconia have found their way into implantology since the 1990s. In the early days, these implants were mainly only available in one piece and the surface was smooth.
Although we know from a large number of studies that the mucosal behavior around ceramic implants is more stable and firmer than around titanium implant restorations, this type of restoration remained mostly the preserve of ceramic implant fanatics.
The hardships were too great for the standard user.
For this reason, ceramic implants have been a niche product for many years.
Today, more and more patients are rejecting metal restorations for a variety of reasons. Whether this is for esthetic or compatibility reasons remains to be seen.
Today, a modern dental practice cannot avoid dealing intensively with this topic and including ceramic implants in its portfolio.
