Practical implantology and implant prosthetics | pip 4 | 2013
The following case report is intended to show the use of the Zeramex Plus implant (Switzerland Dental Point AG Zurich). This implant combines two properties demanded and recommended by science.
What is meant is the use of an industrial, high-quality zirconium dioxide manufactured according to standardized criteria as well as a microstructured and rough implant surface. After several years of experience with one-piece zirconia implants, the author was excited to see the results of a two-part system. The implant insertion does not differ in any way – apart from the mandatory thread cut for every bone quality – from the implantation process in titanium implantology. The two-part system has considerable advantages because the implants can heal unloaded. No special interim prosthetic measures are required. In the prosthetic phase, we can use healing caps as well as screwed down temporary restorations. The Zeraloc connection and abutment bonding let us forget the micro-gap discussions.
The present case describes the treatment of a 53-year-old patient with a Zeramex Plus implant in region 45, after an uncomplicated extraction in September 2012. Due to various intolerances, the patient wished for a zirconia implant. On April 2, 2013, the patient was treated with a ten millimeter implant with a 4.1 millimeter diameter under local anesthesia. The patient received a single shoot dose of penicillin 1.5 grams preoperatively.
Many thanks for the good cooperation to my colleague Dipl. Stom. Dentist Katrin Zenker and master dental technician Dirk Seiring, MSc Dental Technik.
Zirconium Ceramill Zi was used for the crown production, the material shrinks by about 22% after the sintering process. The zirconia body was colored with DD Bio Z color TS immediately before the sintering process. The material of the veneer is zirconia (Heraceram), both masses and glaze pastes are from Heraeus.
