Zirconia Ceramic Implant: Replacement of a Maxillary Lateral Incisor.
Posted on 07.11.2016 08:27 PM By Sammy Noumbissi In Implants
This a case where a maxillary lateral incisor had undergone two rounds of root canal therapy and an attempt at crown lengthening. After clinical and CBCT exam, it was determined that the tooth was non-restorable and for aesthetic and health reasons the patient opted for a metal free root-to-crown option of tooth replacement.
Given the residual hard and soft tissue anatomy bone grafting with the combined objectives of socket preservation and ridge augmentation was done followed by placement of a one-piece Z-systems zirconia implant after 12 weeks. Four months after implant placement the implant restorative margin was prepped, impressions made and the implant restored with a bonded porcelain fused to zirconia crown.

Zirconium Implant Placement, Soft Tissue Graft and Transitional Prosthesis in the Esthetic Zone - Part 1 of 2
This video presentation will highlight the utilization of a One-Piece Zirconium Implant placed into a previously grafted anterior site in combination with a connective tissue graft to maximize the esthetic result. The utilization of zirconium instruments and drills from Z Systems will be highlighted as well as the harvest and suturing of autogenous connective tissue. Proper fabrication of a temporary non-loaded transitional appliance will also be described in a step by step manner utilizing an Essix Retainer from Raintree and denture teeth.
