Split crest technique and CeraRoot ceramic implants

1 Rating(s).


Posted on By Xavi & Josep Oliva In Implants

This patient had a previous bone regeneration of both posterior mandible sites. Titanium mesh and bone particles improved the area.
However, the buccolingual width of the posterior sites was not large enough, so a split crest technique was performed to increase the thickness of the mandible and be able to place the CeraRoot implants without producing a fenestration or dehisence. Two months after the implants were placed, a provisional PMMA bridge was made to splint all three implants. After 2 months in function and 4 months post-surgery, the implants were loaded with the final crowns made of full-contour zirconia. CeraRoot implants have been FDA approved since 2011. They are made 100% of ceramics. They were first launched in Europe in 2003. The implants are made of a high strength ceramic called Zirconia or Zirconium oxide. The traditional dental implants are made of titanium, but these implants are not made of metal.
