Zirconia implants – innovative and safe

The demand for highly esthetic prosthetics is on the increase. There is a focus on ceramic implant solutions with high biocompatibility. The ivory colored one-piece CERALOG® Monobloc and the two-piece CERALOG® Hexalobe implants offer an exceptionally high level of esthetic properties. This is a mature system that has been in clinical use for many years. The high tissue compatibility of zirconium dioxide is widely acclaimed.

View the CERALOG Implant from all sides

Following extensive research and market observation, Camlog identified AXIS biodental SA as the leading manufacturer of innovative zirconium dioxide implants and acquired a majority stakeholding in the company in 2016. Since IDS 2017, Camlog markets the AXIS implant system under the name CERALOG®.

In 2004, the Swiss company AXIS biodental SA already laid the research foundation for the development of high performance zirconium dioxide implants in conjunction with Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM).

The first clinical studies were initiated in 2007 and already used the current material composition and surface texture. Marketing commenced with the one-piece Monobloc implant. The two-piece Hexalobe implant has been used successfully in the present configuration since early 2012.

The dual surface texture

The dual surface texture of CERALOG® combines two defined roughnesses on a single implant, without postprocessing,
that is unique. The enossal area of the implant body is provided with a micro-roughness with an Ra value of 1.6 μm to enable targeted deposition of bone cells. The neck area of the implant has a lower degree of roughness with an Ra value of 0.5 μm, which additionally optimizes the deposition of soft tissue.

The Y-TZP zirconia material

CERALOG® Implants consist of yttrium oxide stabilized tetragonal zirconium dioxide. They are produced by Ceramic Injection Molding (CIM). Here both the outer geometry as well as the surface structure are already created in a mold before the sintering and HIP process (HIP = Hot Isostatic Pressing). No abrasive treatment of the zirconia is necessary during this process. Only few companies worldwide are capable of mastering this high-tech manufacturing process.

100% quality control: every single implant is subjected to an extensive mechanical loading test and dimensional check in a controlled process prior to packaging.

CERALOG® Hexalobe Implant

The first two-piece ceramic implant – CERAMIC EXCELLENCE

The two-piece CERALOG® Hexalobe Implant allows reversible screw-retained prosthetic solutions which overcome the limitations in use of many previous ceramic systems. The two-piece Hexalobe Implant has been used successfully in the present configuration since early 2012.

A special feature is the material of the abutments. These are manufactured from the PEKK high performance polymer which behaves very similar to a tooth under load conditions and offers good sealing properties due to its ductility. CERALOG® Implants are very similar to the titanium implants in their use.

The Hexalobe Implant-abutment connection

Perfect connection design for ceramic implants

Esthetics, quality of life and patient satisfaction are also based on the quality of the prosthetic elements. The perfect implant-abutment connection is of significant relevance for the long-term stable success of the restoration. The CERALOG® Hexalobe connection has been designed and perfected specifically for ceramic. Perfect transfer of higher forces as well as high rotational stability.

Advantages and benefits – ­implant-abutment connection

  • High level of user safety thanks to the connection design
  • High positioning precision due to minimal rotational freedom
  • No complicated transfer key for abutments required
  • Ceramic-compatible force transfer when inserting the CERALOG® Hexalobe implant

The one-piece CERALOG® Monobloc Implant

The alternative for completely metal-free restorations

From the implant to the crown: perfect red-white esthetics, like a natural tooth. Next to the two-piece Hexalobe implant, choices for therapy planning include the transgingival healing CERALOG® Monobloc Implant.

Handling of the CERALOG® Implant System is simple, also due to the clearly structured surgical procedure. The ivory color, which is very close to that of a natural tooth, and the properties of zirconium dioxide, make for highly esthetic results.
