ZERAMEX® XT offers particularly high prosthetic flexibility thanks to its new internal connection.
> INDIVIDUAL TOOTH AND BRIDGE RESTORATION
ZERAMEX® XT offers great flexibility with its reversible threaded connection and ceramic abutments. The lean, uncomplicated portfolio offers many options to choose from.
Monolithic crowns and bridges made of various optimised plastics or zirconium dioxide
All-ceramic crowns and bridges made of layering or pressed ceramic on a zirconium dioxide cap
Different shoulder heights and angles make it possible to find the correct abutment in every case for an aesthetically demanding, 100% metal-free individual-tooth restoration.
The ZERAMEX® healing cap, gingiva former and temporary abutment help to achieve the desired shape of the peri-implant soft tissue after the healing phase. The gingiva formers are available in two heights. The temporary abutment made of PEEK allows individual temporary restoration.
> «BOLT-IN-TUBE-» INTERNAL CONNECTION
The four cross-shaped retentive elements provide an ideal transmission of torque when inserting the implant, allowing the dental implant to be screwed into the bone without stress peaks.
The special geometry with the four tips enables high precision and fast and easy insertion and alignment of the abutment.
The heart of the connection is the VICARBO® screw.
It works like a bolt, which anchors the abutment in the implant. The extremely hard ceramic is combined with a very stiff, carbon fibre-reinforced high-performance peek. In a way similar to reinforced concrete, the ceramic absorbs the compressive forces, while the VICARBO® screw counteracts tensile forces.
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.
