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: Recognition of two-piece systems
Georg Isbaner
The past months have been game-changing for ceramic implantology. For one, manufacturers of two-piece ceramic implant systems are able to refer to new and reliable scientific long-term data. Besides the already known favourable soft-tissue reaction, the data indicates superior osseointegration compared to titanium systems. We are proud to have been able to exclusively interview Dr Roland Glauser, Switzerland, during the 2021 International Dental Show. Dr Glauser elaborates on the study design and the most important findings of the longitudinal study he conducted together with Dr Peter Schüpbach, Switzerland. On top of that, he provides insightful photo material (pages 42 and 43)....

Room for improvement
Dr Dirk U. Duddeck, Germany
This article summarises a recent peer-reviewed study that is a follow-up to a pilot study conducted in 2019 that focused on titanium-made implants and scientifically validated the implant quality assessment process utilised by the non-profit organisation CleanImplant Foundation...
Measuring bone density by intra-oral ultrasound for secure implant insertion
Dr Johann Lechner, Germany
In the medical field, ultrasonography is widely used to image various types of soft tissue. In principle, images of structures in the body are generated by analysing the reflection of ultrasonic waves. To derive useful information concerning the status of jawbone, different ultrasonic techniques must be employed, as the ultrasonic waves are almost completely reflected at the bone–soft-tissue interface. The in vivo measurement of ultrasonic veloc- ity in human cortical bone was introduced as a rapid, reliable and non-invasive method which could be used to analyse the mechanical properties of bone.1 Is a newly available ultrasonic device for the radiation-free measurement of bone density (CaviTAU®; Digital Dental & Healthcare Technology) suitable for visualising the con- dition of jawbone density?...

Ceramic implant placement in a high-load posterior situation
Dr Alexandr Bortsov, Russia
Dental implantation has become a mainstream treatment option, and most clinicians use titanium and titanium alloy implants in their practice. There is a growing patient demand for reliable, metal-free and naturally looking dental implants. Although niche, such demand is particularly pronounced in patients with a heightened allergic status who desire a highly aesthetic outcome...
Floating implants with ceramic implants and the BISS
Prof. Shahram Ghanaati, Dr Karl Ulrich Volz, Dr Rebekka Hueber & Caroline Vollmann, Germany & Switzerland
Bone atrophy is still seen as a challenge or even an obstacle to successful implant placement in both the upper and lower jaw, since osseointegration of the im plant depends largely on rigid and motionless anchorage in the bone. Often, however, the bone is too soft or too severely reduced to allow stable placement of an implant. The latter problem is especially common in the sinus region...

Placement of one- and two-piece ceramic implants
Prof. Belir Atalay, Dr Alper Çıldır, Dr Burcu Balkan & Dr Alanur Büyükvardar, Turkey
In recent years, there has been a tendency to avoid the use of metals in dentistry. On the one hand, patients demand aesthetic solutions, and from this point of view, metallic materials are of course inferior to ceramics. On the other hand, there is also a steadily growing number of patients who, for biological reasons, do not want any metallic materials in the oral cavity...

Full-arch restoration of the maxilla with two-piece zirconia implants
Dr Nashat Gara, Israel
Dr Nashat Gara, Israel Case presentation A 54-year-old male patient consulted our dental practice at the beginning of 2020 expressing the wish for the full res- toration of his teeth on the basis of implants. He appeared to be in good general health without any major background conditions. Panoramic photographs and CBCT scans were captured in the practice (Figs. 1a–2). The patient had ad- vanced aggressive periodontitis. A blood test indicated that the patient had mild hyperglycaemia and increased cholesterol levels...
Complete rehabilitation of an unsatisfactorily restored mandible
Dr Michael Leistner, Germany
A 65-year-old female patient presented herself with insufficient fillings, crowns and bridges in the mandible (Fig. 1). The first molar on the left side showed advanced mo- bility (Grade III). The bridgework in the anterior region was to be replaced by single-tooth crowns on the remaining natural teeth and a bridge supported by two implants in regions #32 and 42 was planned. By using the bone-splitting technique, the local bone in this area was to be enhanced (Figs. 2–5)...
Rebuilding aesthetics with customised abutments on ceramic implants
Dr Rouven Wagner, Germany
A 35-year-old male patient presented to the clinic of the author in 2017, suffering from constant discomfort in the highly aesthetic zone between teeth #11 and 21. He revealed that he had had an accident at the age of 23 and, as a result, had undergone root canal therapy in 2004. Additionally, he had had two root tip resections in teeth #11 and 21 at another practice, in 2012 and 2014, respectively. He came to the consultation because he was unsatisfied with the prosthetic outcome of wearing fully veneered metal crowns. Unwilling to damage his remaining healthy teeth by having a bridge placed, for instance, he was looking for a metal-free implant solution...

Safe and fast osseointegration with two-piece zirconia implants
An interview with Dr Roland Glauser, Switzerland
Predictable osseointegration of dental implants with a strong soft-tissue seal arguably leads to healthy hard and soft tissue that are maintained in the long term. To scientifically substantiate this view, Swiss-based implantologists and researchers Dr Roland Glauser and Dr Peter Schüpbach recently conducted a study on mini-pigs to evaluate the healing around freshly inserted Patent™ zirconia implants. ceramic implants had the opportunity to speak with Dr Glauser at the 2021 International Dental Show about the study design and the implications of his findings regarding clinical application...
