Dr. Jack Hahn has been placing and developing dental implants for more than 45 years. His innovations, including the original tapered implant have played a key role in making implant therapy the predictable mode of treatment it is today.
Dr. Hahn was involved in developing the Steri-Oss Dental Implant System in 1986 which was purchased by Nobel Biocare. He also developed the NobelReplace® dental implant system for Nobel Biocare and oversaw the design of the Hahn™ Tapered Implant.
In 2015, he introduced the Hahn™ Tapered Implant System combines proven features with contemporary design, serving to make implant treatment simpler, safer, and more predictable than ever before.
In this interview, Dr. Hahn is discussing his legacy in dental implants including his experience and what he thinks of the future for ceramic implantology.
Zirconia is a much stronger substance, you can take a hammer, and you can’t break ’em! The advantages (of ceramic dental implants) are in the aesthetic zones. Patients are metal conscious these days. They don’t want any metal anywhere.

ABOUT ZERAMEX® XT
ZERAMEX®XT has a tapered design allowing optimal primary stability. The internal connection has been specifically engineered to maximize the strength of rigid zirconia and eliminate any lateral forces on zirconia.
The precise fitting components offer variable placement close to bone level for enhanced restorative margin. The heart of the connection is the VICARBO® screw. Comprised of many individual threads of carbon fiber that run vertically, uncut down the length of the screw to durably absorb the tensile forces and give the VICARBO® screw its exceptionally high strength.
