Custom-Made Ceramic Dental Implants
From customer-specific implant designs, whether one-piece or two-piece, to ceramic abutments, CeramTec can offer you a solution. We support you with a flexible development approach to reduce project risk at an early stage, through design workshops or stand-alone feasibility projects. CeramTec has the resources and expertise to bring your implant portfolio to the next level.
DENSILOX® Ceramic Implants
DENSILOX® ceramic implants are based on zirconia which demonstrates high hardness, high fracture strength and toughness1,2. Carefully selected raw materials and strict quality control ensure clean implants with highest demands on surface purity.
Our ceramic implants and abutments are 100% metal-free, biocompatible oxide-based materials.3,4,5 You can select according to your requirements between the most commonly used Zirconia (TZP) and Alumina Toughened Zirconia (ATZ) ceramics. Additionally, you can opt for a Zirconia Toughened Alumina (ZTA) ceramics, already widely used for orthopedic applications.*
Our Ceramic Materials
Manufacturing and Quality
We support our business partners with outstanding manufacturing know-how and material expertise to address the challenge between design work and serial production. The brand DENSILOX® stands for expertise in ceramics and quality high-volume manufacturing with flexible production routes. Carefully monitored production and quality control are the key factors to meet the highest standards of quality and batch consistency of our products. All customized ceramic implant solutions produced in our facilities in Germany are certified with the 2022 CleanImplant supplier label.
Certified Production Quality
Implants produced by CeramTec in Germany are tested thoroughly on a regular basis in an independent testing laboratory.
