Nobel Biocare Implant - Step-by-step
Different zirconia dental implant systems have been developed for the replacement of damaged or missing teeth and two different zirconia implant designs are available on the market: one-piece restorations and two-pieces restorations.
One-piece restoration systems show high fracture resistance and expose minimal surface area susceptible for hydrothermal aging. A drawback is that the restorations (final or provisional) need to be cemented to the abutment, a procedure that can increase the plaque accumulation in this area.
The two-piece restoration is a screw-retained implant system such as the NobelPearl™ ceramic implant by Nobel Biocare shown in the video above.
