A confident choice in dental implantology!
ZERAMEX® is a pioneer among modern two-piece ceramic implants. As a passionate innovator, ZERAMEX® is constantly working on developments in implantology.
In doing so, it builds on the Swiss tradition of processing hard zirconia, called the “white diamond”, from which the implant is produced. As a long-term partner, ZERAMEX® allows you a range of options and can enhance your practice through reliable products that are easy to use and are tailored to the needs. What this means:
- Key expertise in ceramic processing and Swiss quality
- An established implant system with an impressive performance record
For maximum patient satisfaction.
The requirements placed upon dental implants have increased in recent years. First and foremost is the patient’s wish to have both a healthy and attractive solution. ZERAMEX® is synonymous with a high quality of life thanks to the metal-free ceramic implants.
The clinical use of ZERAMEX® implants can boast of an impressive success rate of over 96 percent healing (9). Ceramic’s high resistance to corrosion combined with the low plaque affinity minimizes the risk of inflammation (11). In addition, blood flow to the gums around the implant is retained: One study found that the ceramic implant has characteristics similar to those of a natural tooth (2). The benefits of ZERAMEX®:
- Long-term aesthetics
- High compatibility
The ZERAMEX® implant family.
ZERAMEX® OFFERS YOU THE IDEAL SOLUTION!
The new ZERAMEX® XT implant is the latest member in the family of two-piece, reversible screw-in ceramic implants. The successful ZERAMEX® P6 implant with a soft tissue level design is ideal in the posterior area and offers easy access to the implant. The root-shaped design of the ZERAMEX® XT implant achieves high primary stability, and high prosthetic flexibility is ensured thanks to the new internal connection.
The latest generation of ZERAMEX® ATZ-HIP ceramic implants achieves strong connections thanks to the carbon-ceramic technology. The key component is the VICARBO® screw made of carbon-fibre-reinforced high-tech composite. This material has excellent isoelastic properties and fits tightly against the existing contour. It creates a high-strength and form-fitting, albeit tension-free screwed ceramic-ceramic connection. The design of the connection was developed with the aim of minimizing bacterial colonization and accumulation.
The patient demand for ceramic implant solutions is continuously increasing. The megatrend towards white, metal-free dentistry, which started years ago, continues to grow. The two-piece, reversible screw connection can facilitate unhindered healing of the implant and optimize accommodation by soft tissue. Together with the white color and favorable tolerability by the gums (11), long-lasting aesthetics are ensured.
The 100-percent metal-free ceramic implants closely approximate the natural tooth root in terms of aesthetics and function. They are well tolerated, are completely free of metallic corrosion, and conduct neither electricity nor heat. Titanium can release titanium ions, which accumulate in the surrounding soft tissue and can cause inflammation (5). Likewise, titanium’s resistance to corrosion can decrease due to surface bacteria (14). The use of metal-free ceramic implants precludes these effects.
