How many on this board utilize Zirconiu Implants in their practice and which system do you suggest? Thanks Band

Delfin and Milo;
The research on Zirconium implants is positive for osseointegration similar to titanium implants. The Z system is an FDA approved Zircoium Implant system in the USA but there are many others that have been approved and being sold in Europe. It is an excellent option for those of us practicing metal-free dentistry like yourself.
Milo, you have to prep the Zirconium implant at times and to place the margins subgingivally. We utilize Brassler diamond burs for slight reductions and margin finishing and chromium cobalt for gross reduction if needed. All this must be performed under copious irrigation.
Thanks for the posts
Dr. Salama

Hello everyone, Im from Costa Rica. I struggle to practice a metal free dentistry. A lot of patients that are interested in neurofocal dentistry prefer having no teeth than using titanium implants. Im interested in zirconium implants but Im not sure about the research behind them.

What bur are you using to prep over the zirconium, carbide or diamond?

Any XP members using Zirconium implants in their clinical practices? I have done a few of the Z-Systems and have had good results so far. Dr. Salama

Ridge Expansion, GBR & Meshes: Decision Making in Clinical Practice
A variety of bone augmentation procedures are currently available at use to the clinician. Techniques of variable complexity can essentially yield favorable results. The choice of technique to utilize however, is often based on defect site presentation and operator comfort level. This presentation will focus on the use of ridge expansion, guided bone regeneration (GBR), and titanium mesh. Merits and indications of each technique will be discussed, and clinical cases will be presented that showcase the decision making process involved in treatment planning.

Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes & Soft Tissue Manipluation
An adequate bone base is usually a prerequisite for functionally and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft tissue architecture around a dental implant. In patients with sufficient bone height but insufficient bone width as a result of tooth loss, a jaw enlargement technique with osteotomes combined with soft tissue manipulation may be utilized to facilitate proper implant placement while concomitantly optimizing the aes thetics of the final implant prosthesis. The learning objective of…

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft

Reconstruction of a Single-Tooth Traumatic Defect in the Anterior Maxilla Using the Khoury Bone Plate Graft
Trauma to teeth and the dentoalveolar process may result in a ridge defect that precludes straightforward implant therapy of the patient. Typically bone and soft tissue augmentation of the area would first be needed to adequately prepare the tissues for the implant and its restoration..Grafting of the site is substantially more difficult in cases where the ridge also lacks adequate height, and techniques to recreate a bony envelope to apply guided bone regeneration may be required. Moreover, defects in the anterior aesthetic zone that require both bone and soft tissue grafting and a restoration that harmonizes the adjacent pink and white aesthetics may be an even more significant challenge to the restorative team. Hereafter a case of trauma to an anterior maxillary tooth that saw destruction of the ridge is presented, with the defect reconstructed to accommodate a functional and aesthetically pleasing implant supported restoration.
