The ICE surface is an acid etched treatment that was developed by CeraRoot in 2004. It was the first zirconia implant to achieve osseointegration thanks to the roughening etching. The surface is specially designed for achieving faster and stronger osseointegration compared to machined or sandblasted zirconium oxide implants.
