What will he talk about

Ceramic implants – The future concept for esthetics & function?

My esthetic future with ceramic implants

Currently, ceramic implants have become a serious and reliable future technology. Based on optimized manufacture processes, fracture-proof zirconia implants can be produced. Evidence-based data have shown that zirconia implants with a micro-rough surface show equal osseous integration and similar clinical survival rates compared with established titanium implants. Initially, the skepticism regarding the clinical application of zirconia implants was often attributed to a 1-piece implant design. In the meantime, 2-piece zirconia implants – providing new treatment options for clinicians – have become available on the market. This lecture will present clinical relevant background information and many case examples to demonstrate the reliability of the latest generation of 2-piece zirconia implants.
