ZERAMEX® P6 Case Report
Basically this is a very good example of using ZERAMEX® P6 to replace infected posterior teeth. This lady was aware of the issues with titanium implants and had heard about ceramic implants. With ZERAMEX® P6 I was able to provide a solution superior to titanium from an aesthetic and biological point of view. The infected teeth were remove surgically with advanced extraction therapy, including MP3 and Mucograft. The implants were inserted 6 months later and then restored about 3 months later. The patient did not need to wear a protective splint because P6 is a two-part system. With the VICARBO® screw there is no metal and no cement and it is totally reversible, if necessary. Basically all the flexibility of a titanium implant system without the negative aspects.
