Zirconia implants are the best solution for missing teeth in the cosmetic region. Those who attend a live webinar to be presented by Dr. Paresh Patel, ICOI diplomate, will learn why the innovations in zirconia implants are an essential benefit to the dental practice. “Zirconia Implants for the Cosmetic Zone” will be presented on Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 7 p.m. EST (New York).

Naturally, white zirconia implants have advantages in demanding esthetic anterior cases. Strong in design and manufacturing, with two-piece flexibility, and considering the favorable response with soft tissue, makes them the ideal solution for cosmetic success.

Practitioners have all seen it. That little bit of graying from the titanium implant that peeks through the tissue of anterior implants. It doesn’t happen every time, but as the patient ages, that tissue will also age. As that tissue recedes, the highly cosmetic case will become trickier and trickier to manage.

Zirconia implants are white in color and have a natural relationship with soft tissue that allows for higher demanding esthetic case success. Now made of zirconia (zirconium dioxide [ZrO2]), ceramic implants are no longer prone to fracture. The fact is, the designs have also evolved. Designs are now tapered, two-piece and screw-retained with customizable restorative options that fit most clinical situations. The surgical procedure is very familiar and the ceramic implants utilize similar tooling and surgical kits, as used in traditional titanium dental implants.

In this webinar, Patel, who runs a busy, implant-based practice in Charlotte, N.C., will share his perspective on the esthetic advantages of zirconia in the anterior region. Attendees will learn why the innovations in zirconia implants are an essential benefit to the practice and the ever-evolving client demand.

Patel is a diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). Finding his passion in advanced dental procedures, including dental implant placement and restoration, his passion and commitment led him to teaching and publishing many of his cases in worldwide dental journals. He is a full-time practicing dentist who brings his real-world experience to his workshops. The concepts he teaches are predictable, efficient, repeatable and proven to work in a busy dental practice.

Tribune Group, presenter of the webinar, is an ADA CERP Recognized Provider. Tribune Group designates this activity for 1 continuing education credit.
