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

In-Office CadCam Integrated Esthetic Implant Dentistry
CADCAM, and CBCT are becoming somehow mandatory for the proper planning, designing and execution of an esthetic implant treatment outcome. Integrating digital diagnosis to plan properly the surgical aspect from hard and soft tissue grafting to implant placement and abutment design and material selection , to final esthetic restoration outcomes is the goal of using this technology with a microsurgical approach.

The "Dual-Zone" Approach in Immediate Implant Placement Premium Member Content

The "Dual-Zone" Approach in Immediate Implant Placement
Improvements in implant designs have helped advance successful immediate anterior implant placement into fresh extraction sockets. Clinical techniques described have enabled practitioners to achieve predictable esthetic success using a method that limits the amount of buccal contour change of the extraction site ridge and potentially enhances the thickness of the peri-implant soft tissues coronal to the implant-abutment interface. This approach involves atraumatic tooth removal without flap elevation, and placing a bone graft into the residual gap around an immediate fresh-socket anterior implant with a screw-retained provisional restoration acting as a prosthetic socket seal device. This protocol allows for efficient management of the patient and an attempt to maintain all original contours of the extraction site. Multiple case and retrospective case studies will be cited to support this concept.

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.

The Surgical-Restorative Digital Work Flow In Comprehensive Therapy
Traditional methods of treating our patients are being been replaced by digital processes, impacting our daily life. The intake of various technologies such as CBCT imaging, scanning, digital restorative design and CAD/CAM production have contributed to this movement. In the same time, restorative materials have also been developed and studied that have improved strength and esthetic qualities. All these capabilities create opportunities for better restorative outcome. This presentation will highlight a practice-based model centered on digitally enhanced treatment for efficient and predictable esthetic restorative outcomes.

Clinical Investigation on Axial versus Tilted Implants for Immediate Fixed Rehabilitation of Edentulous Arches: Preliminary Results of a Single Cohort Study
The aims of this study were to evaluate the clinical outcomes and patients’ satisfaction with immediately loaded full-arch fixed prostheses supported solely by axial or by a combination of axial and tilted implants in both jaws and to compare the outcome of tilted versus axial fixtures in the same patients up to 5 years. The null hypothesis was that no difference in survival rate and marginal bone level change would exist between axial and tilted implants and no difference in prosthetic survival between rehabilitation's supported only by axial implants or by a combination of axial and tilted implants.

Immediate loading of a socket shield (partial extraction therapy) post-extraction implant with the final CAD/CAM crown The ONE protocol for one-day natural aesthetics and preventing buccal collapse
Immediate implant placement is a well-recognised and successful treatment option after tooth extraction.1,2 Success rates for both immediate and delayed implant techniques are comparable; however, the literature reports that one can expect buccal collapse of the original buccal volume and midfacial recession of at least 1mm after immediate implant placement, possibly worse in thin gingival biotypes.3

Aesthetic Enhancement of Anterior Dental Implants with the Use of Tapered Osteotomes & Soft Tissue Manipluation
An adequate bone base is usually a prerequisite for functionally and aesthetically optimal reconstruction of the soft tissue architecture around a dental implant. In patients with sufficient bone height but insufficient bone width as a result of tooth loss, a jaw enlargement technique with osteotomes combined with soft tissue manipulation may be utilized to facilitate proper implant placement while concomitantly optimizing the aes thetics of the final implant prosthesis. The learning objective of…
