Individualized Zirconium Dental Implants
Published 03/16/2009

Austrian Surgeons have designed a system to produce via CAD/CAM individualized Zirconium Dental Implants for use in case of immediate implant placement. In short, after a tooth is extracted it is scanned and a zirconium copy is milled. The milled copy has macro-retentive features which help secure the new implant in the extraction socket. They report a 90% success rate.

Individualized  Zirconia implants for immediate tooth replacement meet not only in form and color the specific patient demands, but  provide also perfect fit for primary stability with hardly any trauma in comparison to common drilling and augmentation procedures,  regularly employed in conventional treatment modalities.
