“RESPECTIVE PLACES OF CERAMIC AND METALLIC IMPLANTS IN A GLOBAL ORAL REHABILITATION PRACTICE IN 2020”- 2020 EACim congress
Ceramic implants offer new possibilities for oral rehabilitation and will quite surely increase in power in a near future.
This lecture will detail some key parameters for a better long-term stability of hard and soft peri-implant tissues, and will analyze how metallic and ceramic implants comparatively behave in regards of these parameters.
An academic viewpoint on the success rates of both implant types and on potential toxicity of metallic implants will be given, and a clinical viewpoint on their respective advantages / disadvantages (retrievability, prosthetic connections, digital workflow, etc …) will be presented.
