White roots – when & where?

The ongoing discussion about sensitivities associated with dental titanium implants causes an increasing demand for all-ceramic implant systems. One-piece zirconia systems are quite successful according to recent studies. However, many situations are difficult to manage with one-piece systems. In two-piece zirconia systems, there are problems with the anchoring of the abutments and the choice of the abutment material is also not clarified.


Learning objectives

  • Advantages and disadvantages of different implant and abutment materials
  • Decision making: Which cases are suitable for zirconia implants
