ZERAMEX® Metal-Free Dental Implants

There are many reasons for tooth loss, but whatever the cause, your quality of life is negatively impacted. Impaired chewing and speech frequently occurs, especially when more than one tooth is lost. Constant bone degeneration of the jaw can cause lasting problems. Implants as replacement tooth roots can be an optimal solution here and have a good chance of remaining permanently in the jawbone. They can replace individual teeth, restore a set of teeth or bridges and serve as a basis for fixed dentition or removable dentures. Metal-free ZERAMEX® ceramic implants excel in terms of function, health and aesthetics

Why should I choose ZERAMEX® dental implants?

Because your smile is worth it.

A dental implant:

(1) is an artificial tooth root that becomes securely embedded as the surrounding bone grows around it. After the time required for healing, the implant is provided with an abutment

(2) onto which the actual crown

(3) or bridge is placed. Even if you are missing all of your teeth, the implants serve as a base for the crowns and bridges or removable dentures.

This system allows your teeth to be restored both functionally and aesthetically.  For you the patient, this means chewing without worry and an unselfconscious smile. Ceramic implants offer a stable base for your dentures and functionally counteract bone loss. In addition, the natural white hue of ceramics is an excellent basis for aesthetically pleasing results. This prevents the risk of visible gray metallic edges or a dark implant core that shows through.

Here are some of the other benefits associated with ZERAMEX® implants:

  • Better oral health.
  • Improved self-esteem.
  • Long-lasting results.
  • Natural-looking implants.
  • Prevention of bone loss and gum recession.
  • Sturdy, functional prosthetic teeth.

How are ZERAMEX® dental implants placed?

The procedure for placing ZERAMEX® dental implants is similar to many other implant procedures.  It is usually performed in two short visits, the first visit being typically an hour in length and the second taking around thirty minutes.

After the dentist has analyzed the X-rays and diagnostic results, the implant root can be inserted.  This procedure will be performed under local anesthetic, unless another type of sedation is preferred.

Here is a step-by-step process for the first stage of a ZERAMEX® dental implant placement:

  1. An incision will be made in the gum tissue to expose the jawbone.
  2. A tiny hole will be drilled into the jawbone to insert the implant into.
  3. The implant will be screwed or tapped into the designated position.
  4. A small temporary stop-cap is placed to cover the implant, and the surgical site is sutured closed.
  5. After approximately 10 days, the sutures will be removed and the dentist will assess the healing process.

Here is a brief overview of can be expected at the second appointment:

A local anesthetic will be administered, and a tiny incision will be made to expose the prosthetic root.  The temporary stop-cap will be removed and a small post or abutment will be attached to the implant.

When the healing process is complete, the new dental prosthesis (usually a crown) will be created from bite impressions.  A tiny screw will be used to secure the prosthesis onto the abutment.  Any necessary adjustments will be made to ensure the prosthesis is comfortable, and the 3i dental implant will be secure for a lifetime.
