Clinical review: Straumann® CARES® Zirconium Dioxide Abutment

By | 2017-08-17T08:29:44+00:00 July 20th, 2016|Clinical Cases, Dental Implants, Science|

Zirconia (zirconium dioxide, ZrO2) is a popular material in restorative dentistry for implant abutments due to its superior mechanical properties compared to other ceramics (Manicone et al., 2007). The whitish color allows for highly esthetic dental restorations especially in the anterior maxilla and for patients with thin mucosal biotype. An increasing number of third-party [...]

The preclinical studies assessed the effectiveness [...]

Clinical review: Straumann® Roxolid® SLActive® implants

By | 2017-08-17T08:30:01+00:00 June 19th, 2015|Dental Implants, Science|

Higher security in all indications Roxolid® is a unique implant material combining both excellent biocompatibility and high mechanical strength. It is a metal alloy composed of ~15 % zirconium and ~85 % titanium which leads to an increased mechanical resistance compared to pure titanium. A higher mechanical resistance of titanium-zirconium alloys compared to pure titanium has been reported by Kobayashi [...]
