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???

Implant Overdentures: What You Need to Know
Implant Dentistry has evolved from the original concept of primarily treating the edentulous mandible with a retrievable fixed prosthesis. Today most dental implant cases involve partially edentulous situations treated with fixed prosthetic solutions. However the fully edentulous mandible and maxilla still comprise an important subset of our patients, and techniques for utilizing fixed and removable full arch prostheses have evolved to restore both arches. The relative pros and cons when comparing the fixed vs removable prosthetic treatment can be very significant. This presentation will rationalize the treatment options available and demonstrate the advantages of the unsplinted full maxillary arch overdenture design.

Tilted Implants, Angled Abutments and Restorative Solutions for the Edentulous Arch Premium Member Content

Tilted Implants, Angled Abutments and Restorative Solutions for the Edentulous Arch
A goal of modern dentistry is to provide the edentulous patient with immediate function at the time of implant placement. Techniques such as using tilted implants and angled abutments to reduce the time, surgery and cost of these procedures are reported in the literature. This program will define the indications and treatment planning concepts for construction of an immediate provisional restoration following the placement of implants in the edentulous arch. There will be a focus on the use of tilted implants and angled abutments to decrease the need for bone augmentation procedures. The technique of converting an immediate or existing denture to a fixed provisional restoration will be discussed.

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible Premium Member Content

Interpositional Bone Grafts to Treat the Posterior Atrophic Mandible
This presentation analyzes the interpositional bone graft or inlay technique, discussing the reconstructive surgical approach. Horizontal osteotomy with the interposition of bone in the form of a “sandwich” involves raising a coronal osteotomized segment of the mandible, which is still attached to the lingual periosteum, and interpositioning a block bone graft. This technique guarantees a dual vascular supply to the inlay graft from the lingual periosteum and from the residual bone; it also allows optimum use of the native basal bone, which should be less prone to resorption. The advantages and disadvantages of the inlay technique are compared with other commonly used augmentation techniques in the management of posterior mandibular atrophies.

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena Premium Member Content

All-On-Four Implant Protocol- Fad or Phenomena
The All-on-Four protocol uses fewer implants, generally four implants that are placed at mechanical inclinations to maximize support in the fabrication of fixed implant supported prosthetics in fully edentulous patients. The use of angled implant placement allows the clinician to avoid encroachment of anatomic structures such as the sinus, nasal floor or mandibular canal that may make vertical placement difficult or impossible without significant grafting of deficient sites. This webinar will discuss the various treatment options available today for this patient segment and emphasize when and where the All-On-Four protocol can be successfully utilized to eliminate the need for costly augmentation procedures and months of healing time.

Complex Case Rehabilitation in Light of New Technologies
This case report describes a step-by-step full arch restoration (upper and lower), rehabilitated utilizing new technologies in dentistry. CAD/CAM technology has changed not only the technician's working process, but also the clinician's, offering new benefits to clinical workflow.For example the possibility of using zirconia and its characteristics as a restorative material. The clinician's and technician's professional backgrounds and relationships are critical to achieving optimal aesthetic and functional results; while prosthetic success depends upon an in-depth knowledge of the materials and their properties and on carefully performed clinical procedures, which are still of utmost importance to obtain satisfactory results.

Dental Implants: Mastering Esthetics in the Smile Zone
The key to contemporary restorative dentistry is the fabrication of healthy, maintainable, esthetic, and functional prostheses. The true success of any restoration is reliant on the creation of an “illusion of reality,” regardless of the restorative modality used (eg, porcelain laminate veneers, crowns, and/or implant-supported prostheses). Developments and advances to the restorative armamentarium have significantly improved the clinician’s ability to deliver predictable and reliable treatments. Osseointegration…

Timing, Positioning, & Sequential Staging in Esthetic Implant Therapy
Many articles address the predictability of immediate implant placement into extraction sockets; however, there are only a few reports that mention the indications and limitations of this technique. The aim of this article is to re-examine specific indications for immediate implant placement and to clarify the timing or “fourth dimension” relative to extraction and implant placement. The expanded concept of four-dimensional implant treatment planning involves the new axis of time, which must be…
