Zirconia ceramic implant - Performance
Traditionally, dental implants have been made from titanium or titanium alloys. Alternatively, zirconia-based ceramic implants have been developed with similar characteristics of functional strength and osseointegration. Ceramic implants offer advantages in certain settings in patients who object to metal dental implants.
In the presented case:
The new Monotype 3.3 mm full ceramic implants of the latest generation were used. The implants were made of zirconiumdioxide and had a micro-rough surface topography. To our advantage the ZLA™ surface by Straumann® has similar properties to the well-known SLA surface.
