I agree that it may be a little too early to make a definitive judgement. However, my guess is that ceramic implants will mostly have a boutique type of role in implant dentistry. The reason is that with Zr abutments implant dentistry already has a very esthetic option in restoring anterior implants with thin tissue. It seems to me that with titanium implants and Zr abutments we get the best of both worlds. The one application that I can envision a benefit is one-piece ceramic implants where the gap is eliminated and there may be a soft tissue benefit.

Ceramic Implants??????

Still under the scanner....According to me... To start with i feel more preferable to use in the anterior zone...
lesser masticatory forces as fracture resistance is less... less prone to gingival irritation so can achieve a good gingival archietecture and enhance implant aesthetics...

I the case video presentation posterior implants and that to cantilever was demanding too much of ceramic implants...

experts please give ur suggestions on this issue???

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy Premium Member Content

Bone Augmentation vs Short Implants: Making Clinical Decisions for Tooth Replacement at Sites with Alveolar Ridge Atrophy
There is often some degree of atrophy in sites planned for implant placement. An array of therapeutic options is available for implant placement in sites with vertical atrophy of the alveolar ridge, including ridge augmentation, sinus augmentation in the maxilla, nerve repositioning in the mandible and tilted implants. Short implants have been systematically evaluated as an alternative in sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy with favorable clinical outcomes comparable to standard-length implants. Decision making for selection of appropriate therapeutic modality for sites with vertical alveolar ridge atrophy has to consider many theoretical, surgical and prosthetic considerations. Surgical and prosthetic guidelines will be provided for application of short implants for posterior sites with limited vertical height.

Immediate Loading of Osseotitie Implants-After 4 months
A growing number of clinical reports show that early and immediate loading of endosseous implants may lead to predictable osseointegration; however, these studies provide mostly short- to mid-term results based only on clinical mobility and radiographic observation. Other methods are needed to detect the possible presence of a thin fibrous interposition of tissue that could increase in the course of time and lead to clinical mobility. A histologic evaluation was performed on two immediately loaded…

Implant Site Preparation with Motorized Bone Expanders
The osteotome technique has been utilized for many years as a viable approach to expand atrophic ridges. Despite its effectiveness, the mechanical impact from the surgical mallet is not well tolerated by patients. Additionally, reports in the literature describe postoperative complications that include concussions and benign paroxysmal vertigo. These conditions can be alarming for the patient and clinician, as their effects may persist for several weeks. A new technique for atraumatic ridge expansion…
