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.
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….
