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.
