IMPLANTOLOGY: Tutorial of CeraRoot 16 zirconia implant placement

This tutorial will show you the drill sequence and the implant placement in an artificial mandible with extraction sockets, simulating an immediate implant placement.

In 1987 the Sigma implant (Sandhause, Incermed) was introduced as the first Zirconia dental implant system.

Since then, about 15 different Zirconia dental implant systems have been introduced to the market with many more coming. The material has proven to osseointegrate, have high fracture-resistance, be very tissue-friendly and beable to solve many challenges of the partially-edentulous, that have previously been extremely difficult to manage with two-piece titanium.
