Ceramic Implants and more...

Winning Solutions with Ceramic Implants

As patients have greater access to information and take their health serious, they are demanding that clinicians offer the most biologically compatible products possible. 

The most profitable offices are incorporating the cutting-edge techniques and materials to differentiate themselves with a comprehensive health treatment plan. 

The New Age of Wellness Dentistry

Now you can offer metal-free implants using the same surgical and restorative treatment plans as titanium implants. 

In this experiential workshop, you have the option to bring a patient so you can immediately translate all learning into practice by using two-piece, screw-retained, and entirely metal-free implants.

Live Surgery Practicum

You’ll have two full practicum sessions to explore new biologic techniques on a patient.

Our highly experienced team of surgeons will be next to you to answer any questions. 

In addition to ceramic implants, you will learn the ins and outs of how to utilize PRF Treatment, Ozone therapy, Biologic Graft Materials, and other non-invasive, patient-friendly treatments.

9:00AM - 11AM

Morning Lecture: PRF (Platelet-rich fibrin) INTRODUCTION, Synthetic Grafting materials and OZONE Treatments

Ceramic Implants are only one piece of the larger treatment. Patients are requesting full mouth HEALTH!

Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) in implant dentistry studies have demonstrated that platelet rich fibrin (PRF) is a healing biomaterial with a great potential for bone and soft tissue regeneration, without any inflammatory reactions and may be used alone or in combination with bone grafts, promoting hemostasis, bone growth, and maturation. PRF appears as a natural and satisfactory aid in bone regenerative surgery. We will be able to draw blood and use PRF Centrifuge to create iPRF use.

Synthetic Graft materials like Cerasorb M is A biomimetic bone graft, featuring unique interconnecting porosity that allows it to be completely resorbed while simultaneously creating new bone.  Available in several granule sizes to best meet the bone resorption/remodeling needs of a variety of dental bone graft procedures. As a synthetic material this is preferred substance for natural procedures and eliminate need for cadaver or animal substitutes

Ozone Therapy has been more beneficial than present conventional therapeutic modalities that follow a minimally invasive and conservative application to dental treatment for bacterial elimination. The oral cavity appears as an open ecosystem, with a dynamic balance between the entrance of microorganisms, colonization modalities, and host defenses aimed to their removal: To avoid elimination, bacteria need to adhere to either hard dental surfaces or epithelial surfaces. 

Day 2


Registered clinicians with a valid license, who bring a patient, will be able to hone their skills during the LIVE SURGERY using all of the available tools in the clinic.

With 9 surgical chairs and 3 surgeons overseeing the surgeries, you’ll get the direct feedback you need to master these new biologic techniques. One ZERAMEX Implant will be provided with your registration.
