Ceramic Dental Implants in Everyday Practice

Description:
One-piece Zirconia Oxide implants can overcome the problems we associate with two-piece and one-piece titanium root form implants. It will be shown how this treatment option is no longer “experimental” and that the Zirconia Oxide material used in the CeraRoot implants shows excellent ability to osseointegrate, is phenomenally strong, and provides a soft tissue profile and health around the implants that rivals natural teeth. This presentation will make you rethink your titanium armamentarium. You will see a way to provide your patients with an ideal tooth replacement option. An implant that looks like a tooth, restores like a tooth, and has the periodontal health that rivals that of a tooth without the fear of screw loosening, metal showing, and Peri-implantitis caused by subgingival connections.

Thank you Carlos. Have a look in the Ceraroot.com site. You will find many references to published data. If you want more email me I will be glad to send you more. Cheers. Dan.

Hello... it was a great presentation... Thanks Dr Dan for showing us the benefit of dental zirconia implants in our practice... The questions were very interesting... the answers much better... I think we need more information about the theme... If you could recommend more bibliography, I would appreciate your help...

Hey Dan. Great answers below. Please continue to comeback and update your responses and review the additional questions as they arise. A very interesting topic. thanks again, Maurice

Good Course

Dan Hagi - (4/30/2014 11:03 AM)

Maurice. There are 2 piece systems on the market. I think that as the materials improve this may be viable however my concern is with the connections. As we bring these components together we loose bulk of material. Same goes for the narrower 2 piece titanium implants. There is some short term data on success of design but the literature has now nearly 10 years of data on the one-piece ceramic implants like CeraRoot. The components come together at tissue level so I expect similar tissue response but the overall strength is compromised. Yiannis there is 10 year data that should be published in the very near future showing sucess rates very similar to Ti. Peri-implantitis does not seem to be a problem. This could be because of the one-piece design i.e. no subgingival connection or the lower affinity of the zirconia surface to bacterial colonization. The surface can be cleaned to the same extent that titanium can be. One can use acids, antibiolic gels or mechanical methods, though to date I have no experience with that as we have not had these issues. As far as titanium sensitivities we use the MELISA test. I try to prepare as minimal as possible, small modifications of a margin or angulation do not affect overall survival. Heavy preparation and thinning of the abutment will. Surgical excellence is required to get the implant in the correct positition.

Very nice presentation. Congratulations. It will be interesting to see how do these implants behave on the long term as far as peri-implantitis is concerned. Usually we see this type of problem 3-6 years later. What are your thoughts on this subject? and how can this medium rough surface be decontaminated compared to titanium surface? Second question. Zirconia implants could be an answer to patients intolerant or allergic to titanium (see references below). Do you use these type of tests as a screening way to decide between titanium and zirconia implants, or do you routinely place only zirconia implants? Third question How does prepping the abutment affect the mechanical properties of this implant? Thank you for the very nice presentation Yiannis References 1.

Nice job my friend. What are your thoughts on a 2 piece Zr Implant over the 1 piece offerings? Thanks Dr. Salama

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction Premium Member Content

Prosthetic Soft Tissue Development From Single to Full Arch Reconstruction
In addition to surgical intervention is the creation of the specific emergence profile that is essential in the aesthetic zone. The emergence profile composed of 2 parts, the abutment and the subgingival part of the crown. The shape of abutment can be individually shaped so that it gives natural appearance and varies individually (depending on the depth, angulation and diameter of the implant). Sometimes it even dictates the implant position. From a surgical perspective, soft tissue height, position and thickness need to be diagnosed and corrected when needed. From the prosthetic point of view, the emergence profile has to be created to mimic the natural appearance and maintained over time in respect to the biological changes. The course teaches step by step how to be successful with implant prosthetics from single tooth, partially edentulous to full arch reconstruction.

A Treatment For The Prevention of Maxillary Edentulism: All On Four For The Maxilla Premium Member Content

A Treatment For The Prevention of Maxillary Edentulism: All On Four For The Maxilla
Since the advent of osseointegration, the patient who is edentulous or soon to be edentulated has many options to prevent wearing complete removable prosthesis. In the maxillary arch there are anatomical features that may preclude patients successfully utilizing an implant prosthesis. Some of these include alveolar resorptive changes after extractions, pnuematized sinuses, hard and soft tissue palatal vault configurations, and bone exostosis with associated undercuts. Psychological, many patients suffer after the loss of teeth with loss of self-esteem and avoidance behaviors. This program will focus specifically on the diagnostic, surgical, and prosthetic procedures of the All On Four patient. In this webinar, Dr. Duello will build upon the material provided in previous presentations on DentalXP with detailed guidance on clinical procedures for the All On Four in the maxilla.

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery Premium Member Content

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery
Knowledge of Surgical Anatomy is a critical foundation for any clinician involved in implant dentistry. In order for dentists to perform safe and successful bone grafting, implant surgery as well as effectively manage complications, they must first be well versed in the fundamentals of Surgical Anatomy of the head region with emphasis on the Maxilla, Mandible, as well as the roof and floor of the mouth. This Dentalxp presentation, in part, describes the objectives of one component of a comprehensive hands-on surgical Anatomy course being offered live in partnership with Dentalxp. This section emphasizes the Surgical Anatomy of the Maxilla and Maxillary Sinus as an example of what is covered in one section of the course lectures.

Many articles address the predictability of immediate implant placement into extraction sockets; however, there are only a few reports that mention the indications and limitations of this technique. The aim of this article is to re-examine specific indications for immediate implant placement and to clarify the timing or “fourth dimension” relative to extraction and implant placement. The expanded concept of four-dimensional implant treatment planning involves the new axis of time, which must be…

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol

The “Scalloped Guide”: A Proof-of-Concept Technique for a Digitally Streamlined, Pink-Free Full-Arch Implant Protocol
Inadequate restorative space can result in mechanical, biologic, and esthetic complications with full-arch fixed implant-supported prosthetics. As such, clinicians often reduce bone to create clearance. The aim of this paper was to present a protocol using stacking computer-aided design/computerassisted manufacturing (CAD/CAM) guides to minimize and accurately obtain the desired bone reduction, immediately place prosthetically guided implants, and load a provisional that replicates predetermined tissue contour. This protocol can help clinicians minimize bone reduction and place the implants in an ideal position that allows them to emerge from the soft tissue interface with a natural, pink-free zirconia fixed dental prostheses.

Socket Preservation to Gain

Socket Preservation to Gain
Tooth loss not only poses difficulty in mastication, it also involves the probable resorption of alveolar bone due to a loss of function and stimulation from the periodontal ligament fibers (PDL). Bone grafting at the time of tooth removal provides bone quantity and quality for future placement of dental implant(s). The challenge during this procedure—referred to as socket preservation—is maintaining the graft in place as well as providing a final working area with sufficient keratinized tissue…
