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.

Patients at dental centres in Switzerland and Germany received a 22-point questionnaire on knowledge of and preferences for implant materials...
Zirconia dental implants: An overview
Dr Paulo Leme, Brazil
Zirconium dioxide (ZrO 2 ) , or zirconia as it is more commonly known, was discovered in 1789 by the German chemist M. H. Klaproth. This material was introduced into dentistry only a few decades ago. Zirconia became an attractive alternative material in dentistry because of its high aesthetic potential and comparable strength to the conventionally used metals. In the field of implant dentistry, titanium has been the mainstay in implant manufacturing. However, zirconia became a viable option because it possesses superior properties, including a higher tensile strength, compressive strength and modulus of elasticity compared with either titanium alloy or commercially pure titanium (Table 1)...
PEEK-based restoration for monotype zirconia implants
Dr Saurabh Gupta, India & Dr Sammy Noumbissi, USA
For more than 40 years, the most commonly used dental implants have been commercially pure titanium and titanium alloy implants, and these are still considered to be the best and most reliable in the field of implant dentistry. 1
Elimination of a free-end gap in the maxilla
Dr Detlef Hildebrand, Germany
Patient demand for metal-free implant solutions is constantly increasing. While titanium implants are biocompatible and well tolerated, some studies have shown a presence of titanium oxide loads in the body after implantation. 1, 2 Inflammatory reactions of varying severity, depending on genetic susceptibility, have been detected in some patients. 3 In comparison, fewer cases of such reactions were observed for zirconium dioxide particles...
Bone management and ceramic implants
Dr Karl Ulrich Volz, Germany
Bone formation is a complex biochemical process of endogenous regeneration that is influenced by a broad variety of factors. Scientific studies and everyday experience in dentistry practices confirm that the vitamin D3 level and the LDL level impact significantly on healthy bone formation. A patient with a vitamin D3 level below 70 ng/ml and an LDL level above 1.4 g/l will scarcely be able to form entirely healthy bones, no matter how much effort is invested in the procedure. A notable fact in this respect is that 85 per cent of all Germans return a D3 level below 30 ng/ml.1–4 This article addresses the issue of bone management for ceramic implants and outlines a protocol designed to stimulate and preserve healthy bones.

“All that glitters ain’t gold”
Dr Dirk U. Duddeck, Germany
When Prince wrote his song “Gold” , of which the headline of this article quotes the refrain, he tried to explain the problem of having exaggerated expectations in a relationship. Presumably, he was not thinking about an ideal material for dental implants. Zirconium dioxide may have some advantages in comparison with titanium or ti tanium alloys. Better aesthetic appearance in case of sig nificant bone loss and low plaque affinity are benefits of this material...
Ceramic implant vs endodontic treatment
Dr Dr Johann Lechner, PhD, Germany
Where are the evaluation criteria to determine the success of endodontic treatment? Why are there no additional tools to determine local painlessness versus a systemic toxicity focused approach? How can patients be convinced to get their root fillings replaced with immediate ceramic implants? In the following, scientific based arguments will be given from an author having 16 years of experience in ceramic implants. His scientific based publications are being released in international PubMed indexed medical journals and the research on this topic was published in the International Journal of General Medicine (“Stimulation of pro inflammatory cytokines by volatile sulfur compounds in endodontically treated teeth”, Lechner, von Baehr)...

The patients’ demand for ceramic implants is growing
Today, there is an increasing focus on ceramic implants. In future, there will barely be any dental implant suppliers who are able to do without metal-free alternatives. Both the material and the designs have become quite sophisticated and there is plenty of practical experience with respect to tens of thousands already placed implants. Being praised by only a few enthusiasts in the past, the fourth annual meeting of the International Society of Metal Free Implantology (ISMI) has shown that ceramic implants have already changed the market. The event was held in the Empire Riverside Hotel in Hamburg, Germany, on the penultimate weekend of July, inviting ...
5th Annual Meeting of ISMI
First European council for ceramic implantology held
Ceramic implant dentistry is currently one of the fastest growing, most innovative, but often controversial discussed areas in dentistry. Intensive research and development, especially in the areas of material properties, surface design and restorative care, have led to ceramic implants of zirconium oxide being a credible factor in dental implantology in addition to titanium implants. Scientific data are already available, but need to be evaluated correctly...
