codent-logo-site

 Dental Implantology has seen an exponential expansion in dentistry. The range of treatment philosophies and methodologies have and continue to expand. The introduction of new implant systems, materials , designs, techniques and technologies to improve the success of dental implants and implantology as a whole is an ongoing process. However with evolution and innovation comes challenges and after over forty years of growth, success and innovation, the time has come to have a forum where a open and scientific discussion needs to be opened on the various techniques, technologies and philosophies of treatment with dental implants.

CoDent 2016 will be a unique event in that  the format which has never before been witnessed at any dental Congress will bring together renowned lecturers associated with the most popular dental implant companies in the world to go head-to-head to discuss, debate and offer solutions to some of the most fundamental, yet controversial issues in dental implantology.

 Topics

  • The benefits of different implant surfaces
  • Immediate versus delayed loading
  • Cemented versus screw retained solutions
  • Bone reconstruction versus tilted implants
  • Short versus long implants
  • Proper maintenance of dental implants and treatment for periimplantitis
  • Prosthetic options/alternatives
  • Surgical stent and guided surgery: always necessary and always reliable?

5-Year Follow-Up of First 831 CeraRoot Dental Implants

The International Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Implants (JOMI) has recently published the 5-year follow-up study of CeraRoot Zirconia Implants.

Abstract:

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the 5-year success rate of zirconia (ZrO2) implants with three different kinds of surfaces. Materials and Methods: One-piece zirconia dental implants (CeraRoot) with three different roughened surfaces were designed and manufactured for this study: coated, uncoated, and acid-etched. Five different implant designs were manufactured. Standard or flapless surgical procedures were used for implant placement. Simultaneous bone augmentation or sinus elevation was performed when bone height or width was insufficient. Definitive all-ceramic restorations were placed 4 months after implant placement (8 months or more for implants when bone augmentation or sinus elevation was performed). The implants were followed up to 5 years (mean, 3.40 +/- 0.21). Results: In all, 831 implants were placed in 378 patients with a mean age of 48 years. The overall implant success rate after 5 years of follow-up was 95% (92.77% for uncoated implants, 93.57% for coated implants, and 97.60% for acid-etched implants). The success rate of the acid-etched surface group was significantly better than that of the other two. Conclusion: From this midterm investigation, it can be concluded that zirconia dental implants with roughened surfaces might be a viable alternative for tooth replacement. Further follow-up is needed to evaluate the long-term success rates of the implant surfaces studied. Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants 2010;25:336-344.
