Editorial: Scientific evidence and clinical outcomes—the facts count
Georg Isbaner
There are not many luminary figures that greatly influence future generations through their inventive spirit, humanity and visionary power. Prof. Sami Sandhaus undoubtedly was one of those people. Like no other, he paved the way for modern ceramic implantology. He was invited as a guest of honour by the European Society for Ceramic Implantology (ESCI) to its first congress, but passed away at the biblical age of 92 a week before the event began...

Aspects of zirconia
Prof. Dr med. dent. Michael Gahlert, Germany
The material-specific condition of zirconia implants right after the final industrial manufacture, as found by clinicians in the packaging and used by their patients, is referred to as the tetragonal phase condition of zirconium dioxide. “Tetragonal phase” refers to the most stable and resistant condition of ceramic implants that clinicians naturally desire for the safest and most durable treatment for their patients. It is guaranteed through stabilisers such as yttrium oxide, which are added in minute quantities to the starting material during industrial production...
Why titanium implants create silent inflammation in jawbone
Drs Johann Lechner, Germany & Sammy Noumbissi, USA
In dentistry, one of the most established methods is the replacement of lost or missing teeth with titanium (Ti) implants. However, investigators have found that Ti implants can induce inflammation in the surrounding tissue over time, leading to the expression of certain mediators known to cause chronic diseases through a constantly stimulated immune system.1–4 ...
Treatment of an edentulous spacewith a digital workflow
Prof. Heinz Kniha, Thomas Lassen & Dr Kristian Kniha, Germany
More and more dentistry students, individuals working in dental care, dental science and dental technology, as well as university lecturers, are now encountering modern zirconia implants. The subject of zirconia implants not only polarises patients, but is also hotly debated at international congresses and in respected scientific publica-tions. Irrespective of this, the amount of evidence-based in vivo data concerning zirconia implants continues to grow...
A metal-free solution for restoring natural aesthetics
Dr Jens Tartsch, Switzerland
Ceramic dental implants have established a strong presence in general implant dentistry. Patient demand for metal-free solutions is increasing, and the development of new materials, micro-rough surfaces and improved treatment protocols has enabled clinicians to use ceramic dental implants as a reliable treatment alternative to titanium implants...
Restoration after augmentation in the maxillary anterior region
Dr Falk Nagel, Germany
The implant treatment of a tooth gap in the anterior region of the upper jaw with a high bone deficit represents a special challenge in surgical practice. It requires comprehensive knowledge of the handling and modes of action of different products for hard-tissue regeneration, as well as of adequate surgical techniques and materials in order to achieve a stable and sufficiently dimensioned bone bed for aesthetic soft-tissue management...
Digital workflow with a metal-free surgical guide and zirconia implant
Dr Saurabh Gupta, India
In recent years, ceramic implants have become an attractive and reliable alternative to titanium implants. With the advancement of digital implant dentistry and increasing use of metal-free surgical guides, there should be reliable guided surgery options available to place such implants.1–3 There are different kinds of surgical guide designs available in the current market...
Immediate restoration of one-piece zirconia implants
Drs Paul S. Petrungaro & Peyman Raissi, USA
One of the most challenging situations that the dental implant clinician faces, even with recent advancements in implant surgical protocols, is achieving natural soft-tissue contours around dental implants placed in the maxillary aesthetic zone.1–5 ...
Two-piece implants restored in the maxilla and mandible
Dr Witalij Kolbe & DT Artur Wolf, Germany
These days, ceramic implants are enjoying increasing popularity. This is not least due to a steadily growing patient awareness of metal-free solutions and their manifold advantages over titanium implants. These advantages cannot be ignored. For one thing, zirconia implants offer outstanding biocompatibility...
Biological dentistry and ceramic implants
Dr Dominik Nischwitz, Germany
A 32-year-old patient took to social media to find out about biological dentistry and ceramic implants. Having long suffered from chronic complaints, she was looking for a new treatment option...

An implant suitable for all surgical indications
Dr Ralf Lüttmann
In this interview Dr Ralf Lüttmann, a pioneer in ceramic implantology, talks about the current state of ceramic implants and his experiences with the new SNOW im-plant system, the latest addition to Straumann?s ceramic implant portfolio, which was developed in cooperation with Z-Systems...
Carbon fibre—established in implant dentistry
Pascal Wettstein
Carbon fi bre—established in implant dentistryDigitalisation in combination with ceramic implantol-ogy is one of the fastest-growing and most innovative areas in dentistry. With its Zeramex brand, Dentalpoint is considered a pioneer of “white implants”. The screw connection of its metal-free two-piece ceramic implant system Zeramex P6 is unique worldwide. Carbon–ceramic technology provides the connection strength required for such a system. The centrepiece is the VICARBO screw, made of carbon fibre-reinforced high-performance PEEK. In this interview, Pascal Wettstein, Head of Research and Development at Dentalpoint, shares some insight on implant–abutment connections and what the future holds in this field.
Pioneer of ceramic implantology Prof. Sami Sandhaus dies at 92
On the first weekend of October, a true pioneer in the field of implantology passed away at age 92 after a life of great success and achievement. In dentistry, Prof. Sami Sandhaus was best known for the development of ceramic dental implants. With the crystalline bone screw (CBS) implant made of white polycrystalline aluminium oxide, he succeeded in 1960 in creating a true innovation: a metal-free biocompatible implant. Under the name SIGMA dental implant, the CBS system was available on the dental market for quite some time, albeit in a slightly modified form...
The City of Light provides backdrop for the first EACim Congress
On 28 June 2019, the first congress of the European Academy of Ceramic Implantology (EACim) was success-fully held in Paris, France, where specialists from nine nations gathered to discuss the theme of ceramic implan-tology. Held under the theme “Ceramic implants, an alternative to titanium”, the congress was packed with scientific lectures and friendly exchange between participants, speakers and the many industry partners supporting the project...
The Zeramex Roadshow 2019—ceramic implants on tour
On 10 October 2019, the Zeramex Roadshow 2019 took place in Zurich in Switzerland. Under the theme “Fit for the future? Zirconium Implants & Digital Workflow—Simply Explained”, a pioneer in two-piece ceramic implants taught participants how simple surgeries with ceramic implants can be: in his lecture on prosthetic handling, Dr Thomas Mehnert, specialist for oral and maxillofacial surgery from Cologne, Germany, gave a detailed account of his practical experiences with the aid of clinical case studies. Thereafter, he was joined by Philip Bolleter (CTO of Zeramex) and Adrian Hunn (Head of Marketing & Sales at Zeramex), who answered the participants’ ques-tions in detail...
“Facts of Ceramic Implants” presented in Zurich
On 11 and 12 October 2019, the European Society for Ceramic Implantology (ESCI) invited ceramic enthusiasts from all over the world to Horgen/Zurich in Switzerland, where the 1st European Congress for Ceramic Implant Dentistry was held. Dr Jens Tartsch was delighted about the successful outcome: the event was sold out with an audience of more than 170 attending...
