  • With the emerging development and improvement of biomaterials, the application of ceramics in restorative medicine has experienced a renaissance. New production processes have reportedly helped to overcome unfavorable biomechanical characteristics of these materials, which lead to a wide application of zirconia as ground material for dental implants. Zirconia-based implants are biocompatible, demonstrate ability to osseointegrate and have a teeth-like color, rendering them to be an ideal… CONTINUE READING
