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.

Thanks a lot Dr Dan.

Dan; If you have article pdfs you can send them to Tyler at DentalXP and he will post them on your Xpert page so members can access them right here on this site. Dr. Salama

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

Bone Graft Solutions in the Treatment of a Defective & Deficient Ridges; Advantages of Combined Therapy
More patients are treated with implants than ever before. Unfortunately, many have insufficient bone available to support an implant prosthesis. This presentation describes the utilization of several different augmentation approaches for the severely resorbed ridge and dentally handicapped fully endentulous patient. Current concepts related to autogenous bone harvest, 3D bone augmentation combined with blood born bioactive modifiers and digital planning are defined. Video and high resolution images are utilized to further describe these approaches.

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2 Premium Member Content

Esthetic Tissue Reconstruction Around Implants - Part 1 of 2
Esthetics in implant-supported restorations is an important clinical objective in contemporary dentistry. Understanding the biological behavior of hard and soft tissues following tooth extraction is the first step to anticipate the physiological tissue remodeling and its consequences. Our objective in these 2 sequencial lectures was to provide straightforward decision trees related to several clinical scenarios observed in routine clinical practice. The 3 fundamental pillars for peri-implant excellence are: restorative-driven implant position, hard and soft tissue reconstruction using different biomaterials and grafts, and prosthetic management. Using this philosophical approach seems to provide esthetic and stable results over time irrespective of the initial clinical condition.

Immediate Rehabilitation of the Extremely Atrophic Mandible with Fixed Full-Prosthesis Supported by Four Implants
The purpose of this article is to prospectively assess the outcome of immediate rehabilitation of extremely atrophic mandibles by a full-arch fixed bridge anchored to four implants. All patients were followed for a minimum of 1 year (range 20–48 months, mean 30.1 months). No failures were recorded to date. The 1-year implant survival rate and prosthesis success rate were 100%.Marginal bone loss around axial and tilted implants was similar at 12-month evaluation, being, respectively, 0.6 1 0.3 (standard deviation) mm and 0.7 1 0.4 mm. High patient’s level of satisfaction was recorded for function, phonetics, and aesthetics.

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants
When treatment with dental implants is indicated, an accurate diagnosis must be made to evaluate the clinical parameters and determine the optimal time for immediate or delayed (ie, early or late) implant placement and loading following tooth extraction. It is also important to identify complications and their implications on the aesthetic outcome.1 This article explains behavior of the hard and soft tissue around the implant, evaluates the timing of implant placement after extraction, and reviews various parameters that influence tissue marginal remodeling.

Immediate Loading of Bilaterally Splinted Titanium Root-Form Implants in Fixed Prosthodontics

Immediate Loading of Bilaterally Splinted Titanium Root-Form Implants in Fixed Prosthodontics
A load-free healing period has been advocated as a prerequisite to achieving osseointegration. This article reports two cases in which immediate loading of a specially designated additional or "expendable" set of titanium root-form implants was successfully utilized to support provisional fixed restorations in the maxilla and the mandible. This immediate-loading protocol is suggested as a reliable adjunctive therapeutic modality for offering implant patients access to fixed interim restorations…
