Ceramic implants are establishing themselves in modern implant dentistry as a complement to titanium implants in the treatment spectrum. An increasing interest can be observed not only on the part of health-conscious patients but also due to their biological advantages. Promising short- and medium-term data on the successful use of ceramic implants are already available. Nevertheless, the topic is still controversially discussed in part because corresponding long-term data is still lacking. Above all, however, there is a lack of comprehensive knowledge from the practical use of ceramic implants and experience from daily dental practice.

The European Society for Ceramic Implantology (ESCI) would like to generate answers to some of these questions with this Europe- and worldwide survey and to provide an insight into the daily practice with ceramic dental implants. This survey provides valuable information for further developments and can be an important contribution to the reliable use of ceramic implants – ultimately for safe use in our patients.

The questionnaire was designed by the Scientific Advisory Board of the ESCI and is set up for users of ceramic implants as well as implantologists who have not yet placed ceramic implants and dental technicians. The results of the survey will be scientifically evaluated by the ESCI and published in appropriate journals and sent to the survey participants upon request. The ESCI guarantees an independent and neutral evaluation without commercial aims. No personal data will be collected, all participants and answers will remain completely anonymous.

The important partners of the survey are reflecting the relevance of the topic also in general dental implantology: European Association of Dental Implantologists (BDIZ EDI), German Society for Oral Implantology (DGOI), Austrian Society for Implantology (ÖGI), German Society for Environmental Dentistry (DEGUZ), PEERS expert network, Dental Campus Association, Straumann AG, Camlog Biotechnologies AG, Nobel Biocare AG, Dentalpoint AG, Z-Systems AG und Coho Biomedical Technology.

The goal of this ESCI survey is to address as many participants as possible and thus generate comprehensive data that …

  • …represents and helps to understand the market for ceramic implants
  • …to assess the readiness for the use of ceramic implants
  • …identify possible resentment towards ceramic implants
  • …objectify actual distribution and future prospects
  • …analyze practical implementation and possible existing problems in dealing with ceramic implants

Target groups:

  • Dentists, oral surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons with experience in ceramic implantology.
  • Dentists, oral surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons without experience in ceramic implantology
  • Dental technicians

Give your personal contribution to a better understanding of ceramic implants and take yourself 5-10 minutes to complete the survey!
