CeraRoot implants seem to better preserve the surrounding bone. The implants are more easy to maintain with no prosthetic sub-gingival connections. Being one-piece structure, there are no gaps where bacteria can grow.
The following clinical case performed in 2006 (7 years follow-up), is an example of how CeraRoot implants are capable to resist difficult intra-oral conditions such as high ingestion of processed sugar that cause destroy natural teeth. In this case, CeraRoot implants have not lost bone around the implants and the surrounding gum is as healthy as the gum surrounding the natural dentition.
7 years after the surgery, it can be seen that the gingival tissue and the bone level around the implants, have been maintained.
Some bone augmentation is performed on the buccal to give more volume to the maxilla.
3 months post-surgery, it can be seen the shoulder of the implant at gum level.
The color of the gum is very healthy.
This is the situation 5 years after the surgery. There are some stains in the teeth but the shape and color of the gums remain healthy.
The bone is stable specially because there are no sub-gingival connections creating inflammation.
Patient with a hopeless root.
Extraction of the root of the patient and same day implant placement.
Good space for the future crown.
Day of cementing the crown.
5 years after the surgery, the gum around the CeraRoot implant looks light-pink, whereas the area surrounding the titanium implant looks dark-pink/purple.
4 months after the surgery
The xray on the right is 5 year follow-up.
The gum around the implant and the all-ceramic crown is very stable after 5 years. NONE of the images describing this clinical cases have been modified with any software such as Photoshop.
