How many on this board utilize Zirconiu Implants in their practice and which system do you suggest? Thanks Band

Delfin and Milo;
The research on Zirconium implants is positive for osseointegration similar to titanium implants. The Z system is an FDA approved Zircoium Implant system in the USA but there are many others that have been approved and being sold in Europe. It is an excellent option for those of us practicing metal-free dentistry like yourself.
Milo, you have to prep the Zirconium implant at times and to place the margins subgingivally. We utilize Brassler diamond burs for slight reductions and margin finishing and chromium cobalt for gross reduction if needed. All this must be performed under copious irrigation.
Thanks for the posts
Dr. Salama

Hello everyone, Im from Costa Rica. I struggle to practice a metal free dentistry. A lot of patients that are interested in neurofocal dentistry prefer having no teeth than using titanium implants. Im interested in zirconium implants but Im not sure about the research behind them.

What bur are you using to prep over the zirconium, carbide or diamond?

Any XP members using Zirconium implants in their clinical practices? I have done a few of the Z-Systems and have had good results so far. Dr. Salama

Digital Dentistry in the Management of Simple and Complex Cases: The Digital Intra-Scanner
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.

Methods of Determining Implant Stability and Scientific Loading Criteria

Methods of Determining Implant Stability and Scientific Loading Criteria
There can always be difficulties in determining the osseointegration status when an implant is to be loaded with the prosthesis. Nevertheless, it is vital to know whether the implant is stable. Research today demonstrates that implants can be subject to immediate or early loading, but there were no objective standard methods of determining implant stability which will be very helpful criteria for immediate or early loading.

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics Premium Member Content

Digital Workflow for Anterior Implant Aesthetics
We have seen excellent results in the aesthetic zone when immediate implant placement techniques have been used. A review of the current literature reveals and confirms the re-education of mid-buccal facial recession is best when an immediate provisional is used. If we can digitize this information and create a crown-root form matrix, we can allow tissue to maintain the exact 3D position of the crown and root of the tooth that is to be replaced. A technique using "dicom" files and "STL" files of the original tooth-root will be demonstrated. This will allow ideal healing of the surrounding hard and soft tissues in for any implants restoration.

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics Premium Member Content

Vertical or Shoulderless Preparations in Contemporary Prosthodontics
Tooth preparations without a defined finish line have been termed in several different ways, such as knife edge, feather edge, or shoulderless. From a biological standpoint, preserving a maximum amount of sound tooth structure, as it is done in vertical preparations, might also offer a more conservative alternative to a horizontal margin design in other clinical conditions such as endodontically treated teeth, vital teeth in young individual, teeth affected by caries at the cervical third. Vertical margins on zirconia crowns have been tested in vitro and clinical reports have been published. A re-evaluation of possible advantages and shortcomings of vertical preparation design in contemporary prosthodontics will be presented in light of recently published literature.

Preprosthetic Extraoral Verification for Implant-Supported Restorations
It has been well established that osteointegration of a dental implant is one of the fundamental components for successful implant therapy. A vital portion of this process is ascertainment of the appropriate prosthetic tooth position from which the ideal dental implant position is dictated within the alveolar bone. I It is equally imperative that prosthetically gUided implant positioning be accomplished for predictable attainment of functional, aesthetic, and hygienically maintainable restorative…

Systematic Review of Survival Rates for Immediately Loaded Dental Implants

Systematic Review of Survival Rates for Immediately Loaded Dental Implants
The primary goal of this paper was to determine the survival rate of immediately loaded (IL) dental implants based on a systematic review of the literature. Secondary goals were to determine the influence of several factors on the implant survival rate, such as the type of reconstruction, implant location, and implant surface characteristics. An electronic search of databases was performed, in addition to a hand search of the most relevant journals. All relevant articles were independently screened…

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone

The Management of Recession Midfacial to Immediately Placed Implants in the Aesthetic Zone
Immediate placement and loading protocols are the most technique sensitive and at the highest risk of complication, especially in the aesthetic zone. The peri-implant tissues undergo a resorption pattern that may see exposure of parts supporting the restoration, otherwise intended to be submerged, with extreme aesthetic compromise or even complete failure of treatment. The literature is not definitive in terms of any one treatment modality to recover such a complication. Grafting the exposure by a guided bone regeneration technique and an adjunct soft tissue augmentation could well restore an unaesthetic recession exposure. Recovery of midfacial recession by soft tissue augmentation alone may be successful, as is presented hereafter.
