cylindrical dental implant / ceramic / zirconium dioxide / internal
ceramic, zirconium dioxide
The ZERAMEX® XT dental implant is the newest member of the family of two-piece, reversible-thread ZERAMEX® ceramic implants.
The ZERAMEX® XT ceramic implant is placed 1.6 mm supracrestally (optionally up to 0.6 mm) and offers great prosthetic flexibility. The implant thread was developed to achieve high primary stability. The reservoir for bone chips at the implant tip simplifies the placement of the implant.
The ZERAMEX® XT ceramic implant is manufactured from hard zirconium dioxide ATZ blanks manufactured by hot isostatic pressing. No thermal process (sintering) or post-processing takes place after the final shaping of the outer and inner geometry of the implant. This ensures that a high degree of precision is achieved and no further changes can occur in the material structure. This manufacturing process is very complex and requires a great deal of experience and know-how.
The ZERAFIL™ surface is a micro-structured implant surface that enables decisive osseointegration of the dental implants.
The success rate of ZERAMEX® ceramic implants with a ZERAFIL™ surface is between 96.7 and 98.5 percent, depending on the system, and bears witness to the decisive osseointegration thanks to the optimum surface structure.The hydrophilic implant surface ZERAFIL™ is sandblasted and etched so that osteoblasts can grow directly up to the dental implant and firm adhesion to the implant surface is achieved.
