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.

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...

Good Course

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

Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients Premium Member Content

Zygomatic Implants in the Treatment of Fully Edentulous Patients
This presentation aims to bring some possibilities in the treatment of edentulous patients with a severe atrophic maxilla. The major problem is that the absence of an appropriate bone bed, will compromise any approach with bone grafts and substitutes, as well as involving a greater morbidity and treatment time. In this way the oral rehabilitation with zygomatic implants is a current need for many patients, which will require a scientific knowledge of the dental care professional. Through this slide show and video demonstration you will be able to recognize and diagnose cases recommended for the therapy with zygomatic implants and its possible configurations supporting an oral rehabilitation.

Modern Implant Dentistry: Rules of Engagement in the Esthetic Zone - Part 2 of 2
This presentation will focus on the interdisciplinary relationship of the restorative dentist, periodontist and orthodontist to reconstruct the soft tissue foundation for all of these restorative options in anterior tooth replacement. The diagnosis of deficiencies as well as the varied treatment options will be discussed in detail. This includes periodontal crown lengthening, esthetic periodontal plastic soft tissue grafting procedures as well as prescription adjunctive orthodontic tooth movement to manipulate the soft tissue foundation prior to or subsequent with the restorative options of implants, bridges, or pontic replacement.

Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal Premium Member Content

Revolutionary Dental Implant Material Technology: Trabecular Metal
To date, enhancement to implant surface technology has been evolutionary rather than revolutionary. Trabecular Metal has changed all that. This is because Trabecular Metal allows for true bone 'in-growth' rather than just on-growth. This webinar will highlight, in detail, this new implant surface technology, related literature, as well as its enhancing effect on current clinical implant protocols. In addition, techniques for immediate provisionalization of this implant will also be covered in an accompanying surgical video.

Significance of Crown Shape in the Replacement of a Central Incisor with a Single Implant-Supported Crown

Significance of Crown Shape in the Replacement of a Central Incisor with a Single Implant-Supported Crown
When utilizing a single implant-supported crown to replace a central incisor, understanding the final shape of the implant restoration is an important factor to help achieve a successful esthetic outcome. In today's dentistry, tooth shape is a critical factor when dental implant prosthesis are considered in the esthetic zone. The goal of this study was to objectively analyze the significance of natural crown shape when replacing a central incisor with a single implant-supported crown. Data analysis revealed that is there is a "black triangle", a diastema, or presence of dental or gingival asymmetry, an additional restoration on the adjacent central incisor is often required in order to fulfill esthetic goals. The additional restoration is highly recommended in situations with a triangular crown shape, while it is suggested in cases of square/tapered and square tooth shapes in the presence of a dental diastema.

Vertical Distance from the Crest of Bone to the Height of the Interproximal Papilla Between Adjacent Implants

Vertical Distance from the Crest of Bone to the Height of the Interproximal Papilla Between Adjacent Implants
As patient demand increases for more natural restorations in the esthetic zone, clinicians must have the highest level of skill and knowledge to maintain or reform the interdental papilla between teeth, between implants and teeth, and between adjacent implants. To date, there are no reports that have measured the distance from the contact point to the bony crest between implants. One reason for this may be the fact that, with two adjacent implants, the contact point of the crown can be established at any distance from the gingival margin according to the restorative dentist's specifications. Therefore, in this study, the height of the soft tissue to the crest of bone was measured between two adjacent implants independent of the location of the contact point. The purpose of this study was to determine the range and average height of tissue between two adjacent implants.
