Zirconia Dental Implants: A Clinical, Radiographic, and Microbiologic Evaluation up to 3 Years
Felix Brüll, DDS/Arie Jan van Winkelhoff, PhD/Marco S. Cune, DDS, PhD
This article describes the use of dental implants that are made from yttria-stabilized zirconia. In this retrospective study, the implants were followed for up to 3 years. Clinical performance was acceptable, mimicking that of titanium or titanium alloy implants. This topic has generated considerable interest in implant dentistry as researchers and clinicians help to expand the knowledge base.
