10 Year Follow-up
Case 1 5 Years
5 YEAR FOLLOW-UP !!! This patient had an old metal porcelain bridge that did not look aesthetic. The patient was offered two options, a bridge made of zirconia or all single crowns with an implant at the lateral incisor. The patient chose the individual crowns option. After 5 years the gum is very beautiful and healthy. A “CeraRoot 12” zirconia was used. Because this implant is made in one-piece the gum is very healthy. Titanium implants are made of multiple pieces were bacteria may accumulate.
Case 2 5 Years
Case 3 13 Years
13 YEARS FOLLOW-UP !!!
Case 4 12 Years
This patient was missing all the teeth. Ceramic implants were selected and ceramic crowns. After 12 years we are very happy to see all the bone stability around the implants. It’s very important to maintain a good hygiene and perform regular xrays and controls to make sure the patient is able to clean all the areas.
Case 5 5 Years
When you have a family member, sometimes they are the most difficult patients to treat because their expectations are as high as they can get. After 5 years when you see the health of the gum and the health of the bone around the CeraRoot 16, one feels very relieved of having chosen the right treatment option. Thank you Dr. @cocerhantudor for sharing this with us.
Case 6 6 Years
6 YEAR FOLLOW-UP !! This patient had a missing premolar. The surgery was performed on a healed site by @drjpianfruns from UCLA and the implant was restored by Dr. @drandreahenderson . The CeraRoot 14 implant that was used for this patient shows excelent bone stability around the implant and ideal gingival health. The patient is very happy and so are we to see how well the implant is doing. The first image shows the 6 year follow-up and the second image shows day of surgery and 4 year follow-up.
Case 7 13 Years
13 YEARS FOLLOW-UP!!! . Two central incisors restored with two CeraRoot implants. Case report published in the European Journal of Esthetic Dentistry in 2008.
Case 8 6 Years
6 YEARS FOLLOW-UP !!
The color of the gum around CeraRoot ceramic implants is better than the gingiva around titanium implants and old root canal teeth. This clearly shows how much the bone and soft tissue prefers one-piece ceramic materials (without connections) as opposed to metals. Image 100% real. No photoshop
Case 9 4 Years
4 YEAR FOLLOW-UP: Dr. Ali Farahani has sent us this follow-up of this patient. The gum and bone level look fantastic after 4 years and has not receeded at all. On the day of impressions, a little bit of laser could have been used to equal the gingival margins of the neighboring teeth, but there was the possibility that the gum would shrink by itself. And it hasn't. 😃😃CeraRoot 12 is a one-piece implant designed for lower incisors or upper lateral incisors.
Case 10 4 Years
4 YEARS FOLLOW-UP !!
How much space between natural teeth and CeraRoot implant? This case shows that if the teeth are healthy and have no mobility, the implant can be as close as shown on this xray without creating problems. The biggest advantage of using CeraRoot in a case like this, is that the gum and bone are very healthy because there are no prosthetic connections at bone level which accumulate bacteria and may create gingival inflammation and bone loss. Treatment performed by Dr. Al Manesh, California.
Case 11 10 Years
10 YEARS FOLLOW-UP !!!!! this patient had an infection in the #centralincisor and a #toothextraction was performed. the gum looks dark because the crowns are made of metalceramic and the root is dark. Inside the root tooth, there was a metal post which created a lot of #corrosion visible around the post. These metals in the mouth are not healthy. The patient chose a #ceramicimplant to avoid having less chance to have the gum more dark due to the grey color of the #titaniumimplant. The patient also had tooth discoloration due to tetracyclines antibiotics taken during her childhood. After having the implant placed, the patient decided to have #porcelainveneers to improve her smile. After 10 years, the bone level is completly stable and the gum color is pink on the implant site and the adjacent teeth. CeraRoot implants are one-piece without microgaps. Two-piece implants, such as 99% of the titanium implants, have subgingival connections where bacteria can grow and create bleeding gums and boneloss.
