Conference summary

Dental implants made of titanium and titanium alloys are considered the gold standard in implantology, but the increasing demand for metal-free dental implants and the development of refined, tougher, and stronger ceramic core materials has led to strong all-ceramics systems as an alternative to titanium.

The state of digital art essentially aims at simplifying clinical acts with greater predictability and speed, with a clear benefit to the patient.

The mechanical part of zirconia implant protocols is undoubtedly important, however, it is in the area of Biology and Physiology that these zirconia technologies make a difference in relation to conventional ones.

With the introduction of this 2nd generation of zirconia implants, there are critical factors either  biological and mechanical that we have to understand to master the technique This lecture will highlight the pros and cons of zirconia implant therapy as well to show the indications in each clinical situation.
