Archiv - ceramic implants


























The novel professional magazine ceramic implants – international magazine of ceramic implant technology is published by the dental publisher OEMUS MEDIA AG since 2017.

Titanium has been proven as a material for dental implants for decades. At the early stages of oral implantology, researchers and manufacturers also experimented with metal-free materials, such as "aluminum oxide ceramic”. However, these did not establish themselves for stability reasons. Since then, metal-free implantology has come a long way: today, zirconium dioxide is widely recognised as an implant material owing to its advantages in terms of long-term stability, osseointegration and prosthetic possibilities. It is a material that is increasingly on par with titanium in many respects. Owing to the rise of titanium intolerance cases caused by the widespread use of titanium oxide in cosmetics and pharmaceutical products, the demand for this highly aesthetic, tissue-friendly, bio-inert and metal-free implant material is steadily increasing. Experts expect ceramic dental implants to reach a market share of 1025 per cent in the coming years. With a dedicated magazine, OEMUS MEDIA AG is helping clinicians around the globe to keep track of these rapid developments and to inform them about current trends in metal-free implantology. Since its inception, ceramic implants has established itself as a leading international print medium and is regarded by many an unbiased, independent platform for the transfer of professional knowledge. 

Twice a year, readers are getting an update from the world of metal-free implantology through user-oriented case reports, research articles, as well as product news and market overviews. In addition, the editorial team of ceramic implants is paying particular attention to the coverage of important conferences and further training events from international expert societies. 

Ceramic implants is a subscription-based magazine. It is distributed worldwide and at conferences and trade fairs with a print run of 8,000 copies per issue. 

Ceramic implants – international magazine of ceramic implant technology is published in English language.

Editorial: Ceramic implantology in times of a pandemic
Georg Isbaner
Ceramic implantology has never been this multifaceted. The users are able to choose from a great repertoire of one- and two-piece implant systems by acknowledged vendors and manufacturers. Especially the two-piece implant systems promise great prosthetic variety and flexibility, otherwise only known from titanium systems. Multi-unit implant-supported works are now feasible for specific indications. Of course, all of that requires a high degree of education and training for the users to understand and master the advantages and limitations inherent in the system of the respective ceramic implant concept...

Prosthetic complications after artificial ageing
Dr Manuel Reinisch (lead author), Dr Martin Koller, Dr Elisabeth Steyer, Prof. Karl Glockner, Prof. Norbert Jakse & Prof. Michael Payer (co-authors), Austria
Currently, the majority of ceramic implants used are one-piece implant systems, which, however, have some limitations and disadvantages.1, 2 One-piece implants cannot always be inserted in the optimal orientation and require angulation correction to enable prosthetic restoration. In addition, one-piece implants are subjected to soft tissue and chewing forces immediately after insertion. These reasons motivated the development and manufacture of two-piece ceramic implants...

Biological guided bone regeneration and ceramic implants
Dr Karl Ulrich Volz, Dr Stephanie Vergote, Dr Rebekka Hueber & Dr Josephine Tietje, Switzerland; Dr Tobias Wilck & Prof. Shahram Ghanaati, Germany
Ceramic implants consist of high-performance ceramic zirconium dioxide. As the material is present in its oxide state, it no longer reacts chemically,1 does not exhibit free-binding electrons and is inert.2 Temperatures above 2,600 °C or the application of hydrofluoric acid are necessary to change the material. The low affinity with plaque, the lack of thermal and electrical conductivity, and the resistance to corrosion are great benefits of zirconium dioxide over titanium.1–8....

Quality deficiencies of sterile packaged implants
Dr Dirk U. Duddeck, Germany
In 2019, the FDA released two decades of previously un-published data and 2.1 million reports of failed dental implants from which more than 100,000 reports referred to 2018 alone. Most of these failures related to a lack of os-seointegration, raising major concerns among dentists in the US and abroad as the number of additional unreported losses is likely to be much higher. Comments made by manufacturers, regarding these figures, focus on patients with unfavourable clinical preconditions and even blame dentists for their lack of experience and training. Is this the whole truth? ...
Zirconium-dioxide as preferred material for dental implants
1 Professor for Implant Dentistry at the College of Medicine & Dentistry (Ulster University in Birmingham, UK); 2 EACIm Ambassador to the UK and The Netherlands; 3 Professor and Dean at the College of Medicine & Dentistry (Ulster University in Birmingham,
In a recent survey in Europe of > 250 people, by a respected dental implant company; most patients indicate to prefer a ceramic implant (35 %) over a titanium implant (10 %) to replace a tooth in their mouth, whereas 55 % had no specific preference in the latter. Presently however, the implant market is still dominated by tita-nium implants (> 95 %) and there-fore ceramic implants are still con-sidered as a sort of niche product in implant dentistry for the moment. But things are changing...

Surgical aspects of two-piece ceramic implants
Dr Bernard Dahan, DCD, Israel
Ceramic or zirconia implants have appeared in the literature for more than 30 years and have been proposed as a solution for replacement of teeth in edentulous areas. Clinical studies have also shown positive results, as opposed to with titanium implants. Throughout the last decade, ceramic implants have become a part of our implant treatment plans. Besides the aesthetic advantage, the significant interest in zirconia implants is related to its good soft-tissue response. This material seems to have greater biological acceptance by the body, which could lead to a decline in peri-implantitis cases. However, more research is needed to confirm this hypothesis...

The key to optimal implant aesthetics
Dr Kunal Shah, UK
A 58-year-old male patient presented with a dental gap where tooth #15 had been missing for many years. He had been recommended to the practice by another patient. He was fit and healthy with an unremarkable medical history. Having undergone extensive restorative treatment in the past, the patient was very aware of the different procedures that are currently available to restore teeth. As such, the challenge of this case was to effectively manage the patient—the restorative aspect of treatment was crucial to success, especially as the patient had high expectations of the overall result...

Immediate restoration with one-piece zirconia implants
Dr Kazuhiko Okamoto, Prof. Shuji Ohkawa, Dr David Ashley & Prof. Yung-Tsung Hsu, Japan & USA
Zirconia implants have been recommended as a possible alternative to traditional titanium implants.1 Compared with titanium implants, zirconia implants show favourable results regarding biocompatibility, soft-tissue reaction and aesthetic outcomes.2, 3 Although two-piece zirconia implants are available in the market, the long-term prognosis of this design is still unknown.4, 5 One-piece zirconia implants have demonstrated satisfactory results;6, 7however, with the one-piece design, there are signifi-cant challenges for both clinicians and patients during the healing time. For clinicians, occlusal forces may be applied to the implants before they are osseointegrated. This increases the risk of failure if the forces are too great or if the initial implant stability is less than ideal.8 For patients, the main concerns are related to maintaining aesthetics and function during the healing time...
Single-tooth restoration of anupper molar with a ceramic implant
Dr Frank Hoffmann, Germany
A 60-year-old man presented with a free-end situation in regions #26 and 27 which had been this way for about eight years. Three years ago, a PURE Monotype was successfully implanted in position 36 and fitted with a prosthetic restoration. His dental hygiene was excellent and region 36 was not irritated in any way. The patient now wanted to treat position 26 with a ceramic implant without major surgical intervention. 3D imaging (CBCT) showed sufficient transverse bone and a vertical height of approximately 5–6 mm to the maxillary sinus and thus, the use of a two-piece implant with an internal sinus lift was planned...
Patent™ zirconia implant system
Dr Sebastian Horvath, Germany
Growing health concerns of patients have led to an increasing demand of metal-free restorations. The same is true for dental implants. As dental professionals it is our goal to ful-fil this demand of our patients in the most predictable way. When it comes to implant treatments the two most cru-cial aspects regarding a treatment success are the osseo-integration of the implant and the prosthetic workflow. The Patent™ implant system features a novel zirconia implant design with an innovative prosthetic connection. In a pro-spective cohort study by Becker et al. 2017, the Patent™ implant system was evaluated for posterior single tooth ap-plications with good results...
