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.

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

From Extraction to Prosthetic Restoration: Considerations for the Esthetic Zone
This webinar will highlight surgical and restorative techniques to accomplish predictable outcomes in the esthetic zone with implant therapy. Treatment modalities will be demonstrated with high quality photography and case series discussion. Surgical modalities presented will include ridge preservation, the current evidence on the use of growth factors such as PRP and hr-PDGF bb. Also timing of implant placement as well as soft and hard tissue augmentation will be discussed. Special emphasis will be placed on immediate provisionalization of implants to accomplish optimal peri-implant mucosa architecture. Techniques to transfer provisional emergence profile to the final restoration will be presented.

Digital Dentistry in the Management of Simple and Complex Cases: The Digital Intra-Scanner - Part 2
The advent of new technologies has enabled the utilization of new materials and equipment that facilitate the production of restorations with an accuracy that has, up to now, been difficult to obtain reliably. This lecture utilizes patient presentations to help analyze and highlight new systematic clinical protocols that have been developed to optimize the evolving knowledge in digital dentistry and materials. These protocols have allowed us to modify work flow and operational techniques to shorten lead times, while maintaining optimal accuracy. Advantages and disadvantages of the methods outlined will be evaluated and analyzed on the basis of existing literature and personal experience.

Soft Tissue Recession Around Implants 2
Implant therapy is a predictable method of replacing lost teeth and involves consideration of numerous surgical and restorative criteria. Part I of this article explained the behavior of the hard and soft tissue around the implant and reviewed various parameters that influence tissue remodeling. Part II emphasizes surgical factors (eg, tridimensional implant placement, platelet-rich fibrin, and the use of connective tissue grafts) and restorative factors as means of limiting soft tissue recession around implants.

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…

Computer-Generated Abutment Using A Coded Healing Abutment: A Two-Year Preliminary Report

Computer-Generated Abutment Using A Coded Healing Abutment: A Two-Year Preliminary Report
This article presents a preliminary clinical evaluation following the placement of 107 dental implants covered with computer-coded healing abutments. The healing abutment system evaluated herein provided information to specific computer software that facilitated the delivery of an anatomical definitive abutment. This system also assisted in the development of a titanium abutment whose characteristics mimicked the natural contours of the teeth being replaced. A two-year postoperative evaluation was performed to evaluate occlusion, gingival integrity, contact areas, inflammation, food impaction, porcelain integrity, radiographic condition and overall patient satisfaction. Improved tissue response and resultant aesthetics were observed.
