THE CHALLENGE: It has been proven that well-established treatment protocols for titanium implants frequently do not work with ceramic implants, because ceramic is subject to different biological laws and follow a different healing mechanism than titanium.
THE OPPORTUNITY: On the other hand, ceramic implants make therapeutic solutions possible which would otherwise be inconceivable with titanium implants, because zirconium oxide is the only material upon which the gingiva can grow.
THE EXPERIENCE: The team of doctors, dentists, and specialists behind SDS ceramic implants continually develop the unique ceramic implantation concept and are in regular contact with their users in real time, more or less 24/7, through many types of input sources including the SDS shared user chat technology.
To share this experience SDS Swiss Dental Solutions AG has founded its own training and education center – the Ceramic Competence Center (CCC)
Biological dentistry, according to Dr. Volz, is the key building block in the SWISS BIOHEALTH® CONCEPT treatment which continues to achieve overwhelmingly successful and consistent results at the new SWISS BIOHEALTH® CLINIC in Kreuzlingen. The symbiosis between biological medicine and biological dentistry, as well as, biological treatment concepts and protocols, forms a new foundation for the future of biological medicine. Dr. Karl Ulrich Volz is the clinic’s medical director. As founder of SDS, developer of the innovative SDS ceramic implant system and the Dr. Volz Biological Dentistry® concept, he has been at the forefront of modern dental medicine for the last 17 years.
The 2018 CCC program gives you a wide range of courses to learn techniques such as Neural therapy, Vitamin & Infusion therapy, the Short Cut Concept, Platelet Rich Fibrin, Advanced PRF™ & injectable-PRF techniques with Dr. Choukroun, and other courses.

TAV Dental focuses on the development, manufacturing and marketing of zirconia dental implants and prosthetic parts, and is seeking to improve dental implant treatments by making zirconia dental implants common world-wide.
TAV Zirconia implants are the result of years of profound R&D process with exceptional focus on the safety and performance of the implants.
The implants are manufactured using the advanced Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM) technology. This technology offers far greater advantages in terms of part design, mechanical properties and manufacturing capabilities.
TAV Dental offers both, one piece and two-piece zirconia implants. The two- piece implants abutment connection is with screw.
These implants take the dental industry a major step into the future. The metal free option, together with reliable osseointegration, superior mechanical properties, biocompatibility and high esthetic results, has now become reality.

This patient(M/36y) visited me with a chief complaint of pus discharge from his front tooth. After clinical and radiographic examination, a periapical cyst was found as shown below in the CBCT.
Extraction of 21 followed by cyst enucleation was done and the site was set to heal. The ceramic implant(Zibone) was placed after a period of 12 weeks and putty bone graft along with membrane was used to fill the remaining defect.

ZiBone Zirconia Implant from COHO Technology is a one-piece zirconia implant (fixture and abutment in one piece) made of extremely strong high-purity zirconia ZrO2-TZP conforming to ISO 13356, which has been used for years as orthopedic implant material. Zirconia is an ideal material for making implants. Compared to aluminum oxide and titanium, zirconia possesses superior mechanical properties that make it stronger, less brittle, resist to fracture and deformation.
This case presents the replacement of two molars with two zirconia ceramic implants and restored with PEEK-reinforced bridge
Immediate placement of SDS one piece zirconia implants
– by Dr. Dominik Nischwitz
Extraction of all root canals and devitalized teeth in the upper jaw, followed by immediate implantation of 5 SDS 1.1 „Monkey“ implants plus immediate loading. The patient is instructed to only chew soft foods. Due to very big sockets immediate implants # 6,11,12 were not possible. The case shows a multistep approach. We will insert those implants after 2 month of healing and perform to „Intralifts“ to lift the sinuses on both sides. The first appointment was mainly to get the patient as healthy as possible and be able to have teeth at the same time.
To have a vision, one must be fully familiar with the given conditions. This is our vision. This is our mission, our innovative, patented all-ceramic ZV-3 implant system is the result of years of experience from dentists and our constant search for the optimum in dental implantology.

Straumann® Pure is the zirconia ceramic implant from Straumann AG, Switzerland.
This Ceramic Implant offers you a unique esthetic solution to treat patients with specific needs. While some patients have a thin gingiva biotype, which requires a specific treatment approach, other patients express their explicit wish for a metal-free alternative.
The Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant is based on decades of experience and offers you a unique esthetic solution to treat patients with specific needs. The Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant has a monotype design based on features of the Straumann® Soft Tissue Level Standard Plus and Straumann® Bone Level Implants. This implant is the only ceramic implant to have a tooth-like ivory color for optimum aesthetics.

Zirconia Implants: Filling a Void in Implant Dentistry
This course is lead by Drs. Sammy Noumbissi and Ralf Luettmann. It is designed to give clinicians the ability to understand zirconia as a material and the rationale for using bioceramics in implant dentistry. This course will provide training on one-piece zirconia dental implants. An emphasis will be placed on appropriate case selection, case planning, flap design, immediate or delayed zirconia implant placement, temporization methods and minor adjunctive bone grafting procedures. This program is a combination of in-depth lecture, video surgery and hands-on over the shoulder workshop with models on immediate and delayed metal-free implantation. During the hands on training part of this course participants will utilize all components of a zirconia surgical kit and will place zirconia implants in plastic mandibles. This is the closest thing to performing live surgery! Read more….
