Prosthetic and surgical procedure
Step by step on video by Stefan Röhling
The Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant provides a highly esthetic and metal-free treatment alternative to implants made out of titanium. Its natural ivory color supports the use of implants in patients with a thinner mucosal biotype and/or a higher lip line smile. These videos by Dr. S. Röhling guide you through the entire surgical and prosthetic procedures. Read also: Less plaque attachment around zirconia surfaces compared to titanium surfaces – a study, where the authors (Roehling S. et al) come to the conclusion that “Zirconia implant surfaces showed a statistically significant reduction in human plaque biofilm formation after 72 hours of incubation in an experimental anaerobic flow chamber model compared with titanium implant surface”.
