Zirconia implants: the Geneva clinical experience
Despite decades of titanium as the gold standard in oral implantology, the search for alternatives has been growing. High esthetic standards and increasing disposition to titanium allergies, along with a rising demand for metal-free reconstructions, have led to the proposition of ceramics as potential surrogates.
Zirconia implants have seen their biomechanical properties improved and their clinical use has expanded. The aim of this lecture is to introduce the indications of zirconia implants and to discuss their impact in a clinical concept.
