Ceramic implants made of zirco- nium oxide are now available. They are very kind to tissue and heal as well as metal implants made of titanium. In the past, the reconstruction had to be cemented in place, which made them difficult to maintain.
The Swiss company, Dentalpoint, has now made it possible to have crowns that are screwed onto zirconium implants.
Zeramex® implants are therefore a sound alternative to conventional titanium implants.
