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???

Digital Patient Specific Implant Abutment Options for Optimum Periodontal and Esthetic Results
The evolution of Implant Therapy is at the point of uncompromised clinical results when available technologies are appropriately applied. The restorative clinician working in concert with their laboratory can successfully achieve extraordinary results on a routine basis. The various abutment materials and design parameters will be illustrated by review of clinical / laboratory case studies. Restorative material options will be discussed with a focus on optimum long term clinical performance. New long term provisional technology will also be explored. Cementable and screw retained indications and contra-indications will be reviewed as well as approaches to “problem case” solutions.

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.

Achieving Stable Esthetic Results with Implant Supported Restorations
This presentation will focus on the management of the hard and soft tissue around dental implants and analyzing the characteristics of different periodontal biotypes. We will discuss basic concept regarding immediate implant placement and guided bone regeneration procedure related to the esthetic zone before focusing on the soft tissue management. We will describe the prosthetic procedures which are performed before, during and after the surgical procedures. Provisional restorations, impression techniques, prosthetic profiles and restorative materials will be presented. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a check list that will guide the clinician developing a proper analysis and diagnosis for the successful esthetic result with implant supported restoration.

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery Premium Member Content

The Anatomical Foundation of Implant Surgery
Knowledge of Surgical Anatomy is a critical foundation for any clinician involved in implant dentistry. In order for dentists to perform safe and successful bone grafting, implant surgery as well as effectively manage complications, they must first be well versed in the fundamentals of Surgical Anatomy of the head region with emphasis on the Maxilla, Mandible, as well as the roof and floor of the mouth. This Dentalxp presentation, in part, describes the objectives of one component of a comprehensive hands-on surgical Anatomy course being offered live in partnership with Dentalxp. This section emphasizes the Surgical Anatomy of the Maxilla and Maxillary Sinus as an example of what is covered in one section of the course lectures.

Optimizing Anterior Esthetics with Immediate Implant Placement and a Fixed Provisional Restoration
Implant placement immediately after tooth extraction, followed by an immediate provisional restoration of a single dental implant, provides significant benefits compared with traditional delayed protocols. Patients are not burdened with cumbersome removable interim prostheses, osseous anatomy may be preserved, sulcular form is optimized before definitive restoration, soft tissue has matured before implant integration, fewer surgical interventions are required, and treatment time is accelerated.…

Advantages of the Root Submergence Technique for Pontic Site Development in Esthetic Implant Therapy
This article suggests a strategy to provide a more predictable protocol for esthetic implant treatment for multiple- tooth defects using the root submergence technique (RST). The RST maintains the natural attachment apparatus of the tooth in the pontic site, which in turn allows for complete preservation of the alveolar bone frame and assists in the creation of an esthetic result in adjacent multipletooth- replacement cases.
