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???

Ceramic Dental Implants in Everyday Practice
One-piece Zirconia Oxide implants can overcome the problems we associate with two-piece and one-piece titanium root form implants. It will be shown how this treatment option is no longer “experimental” and that the Zirconia Oxide material used in the CeraRoot implants shows excellent ability to osseointegrate, is phenomenally strong, and provides a soft tissue profile and health around the implants that rivals natural teeth. This presentation will make you rethink your titanium armamentarium. You will see a way to provide your patients with an ideal tooth replacement option. An implant that looks like a tooth, restores like a tooth, and has the periodontal health that rivals that of a tooth without the fear of screw loosening, metal showing, and Peri-implantitis caused by subgingival connections.

Instrumentation for Modern Day Implant Surgery

Instrumentation for Modern Day Implant Surgery
Public awareness of the aesthetic possibilities through the replacement of missing or nonsalvageable teeth has been elevated with advances in dental implant therapy and related hard and soft tissue regenerative therapies. This has led to an increase in the fabrication of fixed prostheses supported by either natural teeth, dental implants, or removable prostheses anchored by implants rather than conventional tissue- or tooth-supported partial dentures.

CT Scan Technology

CT Scan Technology
Implant dentistry, one of the most predictable treatment alternatives offered to patients who are missing teeth can be enhanced by thorough pre-surgical diagnosis and treatment planning efforts by all members of the implant team. Conventional radiologic techniques including periapical and panoramic radiographs are limited by the two dimensional interpretation of existing hard and soft tissue. The inherent distortion factor can misrepresent bone topography in critical areas associated with vital anatomy or potential implant sites. Advances in diagnostic radiological techniques improved with the introduction of CT scan technology for dental applications. The enhanced diagnostic range of this evolving technology empowers the clinician with necessary tools to avoid potential complications associated with implant dentistry.

<b>Objective:</b> This paper reports the results of a prospective multicenter clinical study on immediately fully occlusally loaded full-arch screw-retained prostheses with distal extensions (hybrid prostheses) supported by Osseotite implants inserted in edentulous lower jaws. <b>Method and material:</b> Sixty-two patients were enrolled in four clinical centers. Three hundred and twenty-five Osseotite implants were inserted and occlusally loaded according to an immediate loading protocol. The temporary…
