The patient returned for surgery, a consent form was obtained, local anaesthesia was administered across the maxillary arch by infiltration and bilateral posterior superior alveolar blocks. They concluded that the mean fracture strength of zirconia implants ranged within the limits of clinical acceptance. One study evaluated stress analysis. The surface roughness of zirconia was increased by airborne particle abrasion and additionally by acid-etching. Of these, 30 were laboratory studies, 3 were clinical studies, 2 were case reports, and 2 were review articles. The patient had difficulty wearing removable appliances, has a severe gag reflex and requested a metal free fixed solution to replace his teeth. Minerva Stomatol 2003 Mar;52(3):111-21. The search for biocompatible materials as an alternative to titanium for dental implants has led dentistry to the use of innovative materials that can overcome some of the issues observed with titanium. In order to avert this risk, some two-piece zirconia implants have a pre-mounted clamp wedge that is located inside the implant and keeps the screw fixed to the abutment. This modality has been well proven and documented to assess implant stability and readiness to be restored. Hoffmann O, Angelov N, Zafiropoulos GG, Andreana S. Osseointegration of zirconia implants with different surface characteristics: an evaluation in rabbits. Case report 1 had a three-year follow-up, while the second case was evaluated up until 18 months. Zirconia vs. titanium implants Originally the first dental implants (1980’s) had two parts: the fixture (which goes screwed into the bone) and the abutment (where the prosthetic crown is cemented). Stability and aging resistance of a zirconia oral implant using a carbon fiber-reinforced screw for implant-abutment connection. Our in-house lab professionals have hand-crafted stunning Zirconia prosthetic teeth for thousands of dental implant patients, and are ready to create for you a smile that lasts a lifetime. Thus, each thread contributes to resisting and supporting the occlusal load while the apex is orthogonally opposed to it. Extractions of all remaining teeth was done atraumatically using periotomes and taking care to preserve the buccal plates on both arches. At 10 months, BIC was found to be 68% for alumina, 64.6% for zirconia, and 54% for titanium. J Periodontol 2004;75:1262-8. Alternative treatment options were presented including overdentures on four ceramic implants. Zirconia implants, which may also be referred to as ceramic implants, seems to be the new implant material. Why Prettau ® Zirconia is a better choice for dental bridges than acrylic with denture teeth. Impiego di impianti in zirconia per le riabilitazioni delle edentulie singole e multiple: protocollo chirurgico-protesico. Some commercially available implants also have cylindrical-conical models (Zeramex® XT, Zeramex®, Dentalpoint AG, Spreitenbach, Switzerland; NobelPearl, Nobel®, Nobel Biocare Italiana, Vimercate; SDS 2.0, SDS Swiss Dental Solutions AG, Kreuzlingen, Switzerland). Delgado-Ruíz RA, Calvo-Guirado JL, Moreno P, Guardia J, Gomez-Moreno G, Mate-Sánchez JE, Raminez-Fernández P, Chiva F. Femtosecond laser microstructuring of zirconia dental implants. The impact of edentulism on oral and general health. Although zirconia may be used as an implant material by itself, zirconia particles are also used as a coating material of titanium dental implants. It has been shown in the literature that an implant placed in poor quality bone with thin cortical bone and low trabecular density (D4) has a greater probability of failure compared to implants inserted in other types of bone quality (10). Testori T, Galli F, Fumagalli L, Capelli M, Zuffetti F, Deflorian M, Parenti A, Del Fabbro M. Assessment of Long-Term Survival of Immediately Loaded Tilted Implants Supporting a Maxillary Full-Arch Fixed Prosthesis. J Oral Implantol 1 June 2011; 37 (3): 367–376. We use state-of-the art technology: pure zirconia implants, which offer a highly biocompatible, metal-free solution that combines excellent function with optimal, natural-looking esthetics. Cements recommended for luting differ according to the manufacturer's indications but generally belong to two categories: glass ionomer cements (KetacTM Cem, 3MTM Espe, 3M Italia S.p.a, Pioltello, Italy) and resin cements (PanaviaTM 2.0, Kuraray, Kuraray Europe GmbH, Hattersheim, Germany; RelyXTM Unicem, 3MTM Espe, 3M Italia S.p.a, Pioltello, Italy; Els cem, Saremco Dental, Saremco Dental AG, Rebstein, Switzerland). Clin Oral Implants Res 2009;20 (Suppl. Akagawa et al27 examined the initial implant-bone interface with the 1-stage zirconia screw implant (Goei Industry, Akitsu-Hiroshima, Japan) with different occlusal loading conditions after 3 months in beagle dogs. Nonetheless, it should be noted that zirconia has intrinsic characteristics and surface properties that allow limited plaque organisation and limited bacteria adherence and microbiota compared to titanium(12). Ferguson et al41 compared the biomechanical properties of 6 types of implant surfaces and found the RTQ values of SLA titanium as 1884 N/mm, SLA and calcium phosphate (CaP)-coated titanium as 1683 N/mm, SLA and anodic plasma chemical surface-treated titanium as 919 N/mm, SLA and bisphosphonate-coated titanium as 1835 N/mm, SLA and collagen-coated titanium as 1593 N/mm, and SLA zirconia as 1005 N/mm. Of the various types of laser usable for this treatment, a study conducted by Delgado‐Ruíz et al. Zeynep Özkurt, Ender Kazazoğlu; Zirconia Dental Implants: A Literature Review. Clin Oral Implants Res 2012:23:281-286. A short communication, Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC 4.0). Using implants with these screws means that the restoration cannot be defined as completely metal-free, although it should be specified that the metal connection screw is not in direct contact with the patient's tissues. The zirconia prosthesis framework was manufactured with CAD/CAM technology after scanning of the wax-up prosthesis. The improvements in new ceramic materials made it possible on … The coated zirconia implants and the titanium implants showed higher RTQ than the machined zirconia implants. These abutments used on two-piece implants with dedicated internal morphology (Zeramex® T Zeralock™, Zeramex®, Dentalpoint AG, Spreitenbach, Switzerland) enable mechanical fixing by a rotational movement of 60°. Malo P, Rangert B, Nobre M. “All-on-Four” immediate- function concept with Branemark System implants for completely edentulous mandibles: a retrospective clinical study. They stimulate gum tissue growth to improve healing; They fuse with the jawbone like titanium implants for stability; Hypoallergenic and do not release toxins Materials and methods. Ceramic implants which are well proven to be stable in the oral environment and highly biocompatible perform as well as their titanium counterparts. Clin Implant Dent Relat Res. Gerodontology. J Oral Implantol. Head Face Med 2008;4:25. In the other study,37 machined zirconia, sandblasted zirconia, and SLA zirconia surfaces were evaluated. Another common problem of all the systems that involve a connection screw is the possibility that it can become unscrewed. The posterior areas of the prosthesis were full contour. precise (to guarantee the maximum possible seal between abutment and implant in order to minimize the possibility of bacterial adhesion and proliferation); stable (to ensure adequate resistance to mastication stresses, the two connected components must not be allowed to move against each other, whether these are rotary torsion or bending movements); simple (to ensure maximum practicality of use for the clinician both during surgery and when loading the prosthesis). 2017 Aug;47(4):251-262. doi:10.5051/jpis.2017.47.4.251. (1). The internal hexagon allows the diffusion of the forces tangentially and provides good anti-rotational stability (Ceralog® Hexalobe, Camlog Biotechnologies AG, Basel, Switzerland). Articles about zirconia implants for orthopedic usage were excluded from the review. Of particular interest are the systems that involve a combination of the two connection techniques, as they require both a micro clamping screw and cementation (SDS2.0, SDS Swiss Dental Solutions AG, Kreuzlingen, Switzerland). Pirker et al48 placed a zirconia implant to the maxillary first premolar region immediately and evaluated the clinical outcome of this implant. There are no reports available in the literature on the loss of retention of the abutment for two-piece implants with cemented abutments using self-curing resin cements (16,17). The external hex connections have an external hexagon at the neck of the implant with an anti-rotational function. The size of zirconia with 3% Y2O3 powders was 40–100 µm, and the size of zirconia with 4% CeO2 powders was 10–20 nm. Nordlund et al21 studied the tissue integration of 3 types of implant materials in monkeys: (1) alumina with 4% zirconia and 25% magnesia, (2) alumina with 25% silicon carbide, and (3) unalloyed titanium implants. This material is not radiopaque, with an elastic modulus >160 GPa, flexural strength >1100 MPa, tensile strength 2000 MPa and is biocompatible according to ISO10993. 2014). The use of dental implants to improve the quality of life for edentulous patients. Furthermore, as already mentioned above, when the bone quality of a patient is poor or in cases where regenerative procedures are needed (Figures 4a,b,c,d,e), two-piece implants make provide the option to proceed with the two-staged implant placement approach. 2017 Jul/Aug;32(4):904-911. doi: 10.11607/jomi.5578. Two-piece zirconia implants are available in both the cylindrical version (Straumann® Pure Ceramic, Straumann AG, Basel, Switzerland; Z3c/Z3s Z-Systems AG, Oensingen, Switzerland; Zeramex® P6, Zeramex®, Dentalpoint AG, Spreitenbach, Switzerland; TAV Zirconia two-piece implant, TAV Dental Germany GmbH, Hamburg, Germany) and conical (Ceralog® Hexalobe, Camlog Biotechnologies AG, Basel, Switzerland) and are threaded along the entire submergeable surface. Gahlert et al1 evaluated the RTQ values of machined zirconia implants, sandblasted zirconia implants, and SLA titanium implants. Bacterial adhesion to zirconium surfaces. When dentists perform implant therapy for teeth replacement in full-arch indications, not only do they restore form and function, but also improve the quality of life for the patient. At day 1, cell proliferation of zirconia surfaces was similar to that of titanium surfaces. The use of screws in a material different from zirconia can be a critical point of implant restoration, since stress areas can be concentrated in the connection point with the screw. Clin Oral Implants Res 2015;26(4):371–6. They concluded that zirconia blades had adequate strength in occlusion. Becker J, John G, Becket K, Mainusch S, Diedrichs G, Frank S. Clinical performance of two‐piece zirconia implants in the posterior mandible and maxilla: a prospective cohort study over 2 years. Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research. With regard to abutment fractures, the fracturing of the abutment has been recorded in only a few clinical studies (17, 20,) and, when it occurred, the fracture line was located at the base of the connection (17). Alzubaydi et al40 evaluated the effects of ceramic coatings (hydroxyapatite and zirconia) on the bond strength between bone and implant, as well as the cell compatibility of screw-shaped titanium dental implants. Clin Oral Implants Res 2013 May;24(5):569-75. The first in vivo and in vitro trials (21,22) took into consideration the surface changes of zirconia in order to evaluate their effect on the osseointegration ability and on the mechanical characteristics of the biomaterial. The cylindrical base of the abutment rests on the edge of the implant. The cemented portion of the abutment remains cemented within the implant and removal often leads to destruction of the internal connection portion of the implant. Element release from titanium devices used in oral and maxillofacial surgery. This indicates that, proportionately speaking, significantly greater bony healing was seen on the zirconia surface than on the titanium surface. Zirconia implants, used initially in their one-piece variant, have been further developed and we now have available two-piece versions of ceramic implants. (28,29,30). The same researchers28 observed the role of osseointegration around the 1-stage zirconia screw implant (Goei) with various conditions for loading support after 2 years of function in monkeys. Zirconia dental implants are hypoallergenic, so sensitivity and allergy issues are not a problem. This may undermine the osseointegration processes, particularly where the bone support is of poor quality, a clinical situation found frequently in the latero-posterior quadrants in the upper maxillary bone. Investigators concluded that zirconia could be considered a superior ceramic coating to alumina. Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants 2012:27:352–358. The implants are made of zirconium-dioxide (either ZrO2-TZP-HIP or ZrO2-ATZ-HIP). Nordlund et al 21 studied the tissue integration of 3 types of implant materials in monkeys: (1) alumina with 4% zirconia and 25% magnesia, (2) alumina with 25% silicon carbide, and (3) unalloyed titanium implants. Dent Mater 2018 Sep 1. pii: S0109-5641(18)30475-5. Only three mandibular teeth were present (Figure 17) with no teeth remaining in the left quadrant and moderate to advanced vertical bone loss. These realities imply a high risk for fracture.11 In recent years, high-strength zirconia ceramics have become attractive as new materials for dental implants. Sandblasting with aluminium oxide in Y-TZP implants, performed before the sintering process, this manufacturing sequence protects the zirconia from transforming from the tetragonal phase to the monoclinic phase therefore avoiding to undermine its physical properties. Zirconia dental implants have the potential to become alternative dental implants to titanium dental implants, but they are not yet in routine clinical use. Given the sinus elevation requirement, future investigators may exclude patients with less than 5 mm residual bone. No difference in tissue reaction around these 3 types of implant materials was observed after 6–8 months. Modifying the abutment in this way to adapt it to the requirements of the prosthesis results in structural alterations that could weaken the zirconia and make more vulnerable to fracture, a situation that should be avoided particularly in the posterior quadrant where the chewing forces are highest. Wennerberg A, Albrektsson T. Suggested guidelines for the topographic evaluation of implant surfaces. In this type of implant, the manufacturer claims a lesser risk of screw loosening (Z3s Z-SYSTEMS AG, Oensingen, Switzerland). J Prosthodont Res 2018 Oct;62(4):397-406. This implant type allows the two-piece to be treated in a similar way to the one-piece type. Clin Oral Implants Res 2015;26(4):413–8. Clin Oral Implants Res 2017; 28(1):29-35. These materials have attained mainstream use because of their excellent biocompatibility, favorable mechanical properties, and well documented beneficial results.2,3 When exposed to air, titanium immediately develops a stable oxide layer, which forms the basis of its biocompatibility. The search was conducted using the following key words: zirconia or zirconium dioxide, dental, and implant. In the last study conducted by this group,2 the osseous healing of zirconia implants (Konus) was compared with that of acid-etched titanium implants with the same macroscopic design in an animal experiment. A sandblasting process with round zirconia particles may be an alternative surface treatment to enhance the osseointegration of titanium implants. Although statistically not significant, a clear tendency was noted for the chemically and pharmacologically modified implants to show better BIC values at 8 weeks compared with the anodic plasma treated-surface of zirconia implants. In clinical implant dentistry, such level of failure is unacceptable . 42. The patient wore the provisional prosthetics for four months during which aesthetic and occlusal adjustments were made. Corrosion of titanium in presence of dental amalgams and fluorides. A try-in of the framework was done to verify and confirm passive fit to the implant abutments on both arches. However laser surface treatment of zirconia is known to adversely compromise the structural stability and integrity of zirconia by accelerating the transition of the materials from tetragonal to monoclinic. She stated that she tried to wear removable partial and full dentures over the years, but they made it difficult for her to sing at church and socialize confidently. The BIC was 81.9% for the nonloaded group and 69.8% for the loaded group. Furthermore, Oliva et al50 reported the first clinical case of an ovoid zirconia dental implant. Furthermore, a few years earlier she had poor response to her hip and knee replacement implants, her preference was to have her teeth replaced with ceramic implants and a metal free hybrid prosthesis. D. Duddeck, J. Neugebauer. This kind of situation is difficult to ascertain diagnostically because of the unreliability and inaccuracy of skin patch tests (2). The aim of the study was to systematically analyze the effect of these process steps on surface morphology and mechanical strength of the implants. No bleeding was detected on probing. Our dentist, Dr. Leonard Umanoff, is experienced in planning and placing titanium and zirconia dental implants. Dentists often recommend crowns as a way to support broken, weak, or misshapen teeth. Epub 2014 Jun 26. Review. J Am Dent Assoc 2011;142:310-20. One of the main disadvantages is the risk of excess cement which can be very difficult, especially if it is subgingival. J Periodontol 2004;75(9):1262-1268. Response of osteoblast-like cells to zirconia with different surface topography. After minor occlusal adjustments, the all-ceramic porcelain fused to zirconia cementable hybrid bridges were bonded to the implant-abutment assemblies following the previously described cementation protocol (Figure 15). Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants. All implants showed new bone trabeculae, vascularized medullary spaces, and close contact with preexisting bone at 2 weeks. BDIZ/EDI Implant study, «quantitative and qualitative element-analysis of implant-surfaces by SEM and EDX». It has been established that and according to the Gell and Coombs classification, type IV immunological reactions can occur following placement and/or restoration when using titanium and titanium alloys. Results demonstrated that zirconia implants with modified surfaces resulted in an osseointegration that was comparable with that of titanium implants. The periodontally involved teeth had mobility type II with moderate to advanced bone loss and gingival recession (Figure 16). Because of potential immunologic and possible esthetic compromises with titanium implants, novel implant technologies are being developed. Bacchelli et al26 examined peri-implant osseointegration and found the following: Machined titanium implants had 34.5% BIC, titanium plasma-sprayed titanium implants had 44.7% BIC, alumina-blasted titanium implants had 53.4% BIC, and zirconia-blasted titanium implants had 35.5% BIC at 2 weeks. Because of this one-piece design, they are often easier to handle and offer a relatively seamless option for surgeons who want to place the implant and then continue on with the crown procedure itself. No significant difference was observed between the hardness of all coatings and substrates. Gahlert M, Gudehus T, Eichorn S, Steinhauser E, Erhardt W. Biomechanical and histomorphometric comparison between zirconia implants with varying surface textures and a titanium implant in the maxilla of miniature pigs. Ideally, a connection should be: The implant connections for zirconia implants, like for titanium implants, are currently divided into the following types. In addition, titanium implants were used. Noncoated zirconia implants were used as controls. The Sigma implant (Sandhause, Incermed, Lausanne, Switzerland), which was developed in 1987, was the first zirconia dental implant system. The surfaces of ceramic implants have been constantly evolving over the years, which has been necessary to achieve higher performance characteristics for improved osseointegration. This provides a significant clinical advantage in the tightening of the screw which, thanks to the presence of longitudinal and continuous carbon fibres, adapts to the internal thread of the implant and significantly contribute to dissipate stresses and tension forces. SEM analyses demonstrated that diode and Er∶YAG lasers did not cause any visible surface alterations. The evolution of ceramic implantology has led to the introduction of two-piece implants, in response to the growing demand for metal-free restorations and to the demand for an alternative that would allow its use in cases where single-piece types in zirconia were not suitable. The material also provides high strength, fracture toughness, and biocompatibility.14 The inflammatory response and bone resorption induced by ceramic particles are less than those induced by titanium particles, suggesting the biocompatibility of ceramics.15,16. The total number of papers that met the inclusion criteria for this review was 37. Minamizato et al42 investigated the compressive strength of the blade type of zirconia dental implants with tunnels drilled by laser process, and found that specimens with tunnels showed lower compressive strength (237 kg/mm2) than specimens without tunnels (371.5 kg/mm2). Prettau ® Zirconia is stronger and much more durable than acrylic. In this article, systems with a carbon-PEEK connection screw were evaluated together with control groups subjected to cycles of hydrothermal aging (85° for 60 days) and to dynamic load cycles (for 107 days). Three types of superstructure were provided in each animal to obtain different concepts of support: (1) single freestanding implants, (2) connected freestanding implants, and (3) a combination of implant and tooth. An 82 years old female presented partially edentulous maxilla and a fully edentulous mandible. Smith DE, Zarb GA. ), Department of Prosthodontics, Faculty of Dentistry, Yeditepe University, Goztepe, Istanbul, Turkey. Zirconia seems to be a suitable implant material because of its toothlike color, mechanical properties, biocompatibility, and low plaque affinity. No statistically significant difference was noted between the 3 types of implants. Oliva et al47 reported the first clinical evaluation of 100 zirconia implants (CeraRoot, Barcelona, Spain) with 2 different surface roughnesses in humans after 1 year of follow-up. Dental implants are the single most effective way to preserve foundational bone in the jaw and restore the function and beauty of your smile. Kohal et al49 presented the first clinical case report of a zirconia dental implant in the literature. Kohal RJ, Weng D, Bächle M, Strub JR. Loaded custom-made zirconia and titanium implants show similar osseointegration: an animal experiment. As a result, clinical situations where patients want metal free teeth replacement are becoming more and more comprehensive and complex. They are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth and gums. Many research articles have been written about zirconia dental implants. At 3 months, no significant difference was noted for BIC between the 2 groups. The use of zirconia implants avoids this complication and accedes to the request of many patients for metal-free implants. The literature indicates the presence of a demonstrable immunological reactivity in about 5% of patients with titanium implants. Acta Biomater 2017 May;54:469-478.

Zirconia implants have enabled modern implantology to overcome the limitations of titanium, which are not just in terms of restoration, such as the anterior quadrant in patients with thin gingival biotype, but also in terms of immunological response to the implant material. Clin Oral Implants Res 2012: 23:49–54. Once it was determined that the patient had adjusted to and was comfortable with the provisionals, they were scanned and duplicated in a zirconia framework which was manufactured with CAD/CAM milling technology. If it was not possible to obtain a full text, the electronically available abstracts were collected. Overall, the marginal bone loss was respectively 0.89 mm (CI 95% 0.60-1.18) and 0.98 mm (CI 95% 0.79-1.18). (15) on 17 clinical studies observed that, for a total of 1704 zirconia implants (1521 one-piece, 183 two-piece), monitored for a period of between 1 and 7 years, the average survival rates were 95% (95% CI 91-97%). Quintessenza Int 2010 Set-Ott; 3 bis:3-13. Scarano et al30 demonstrated the bone response to zirconia implants at 4 weeks. Zirconia dental implants are extremely strong and durable, and their long-term success is one of the most attractive features of the system. The patient elected not to have it replaced with another implant. Patients received soft-relined immediate dentures which were relined periodically during the osseointegration period. proposed the use of femtosecond laser as a valid alternative (27). Lopes A, Maló P, de Araújo Nobre M, Sánchez-Fernández E, Gravito I. Although Zirconia implants show promise, their long-term success is not proven. At day 3, cell growth was significantly higher on the zirconia surfaces than on the titanium surfaces. At 8 weeks, RTQ values of zirconia were significantly lower. Durability. A two-phased treatment plan consisting initially of full arch extractions, immediate implant placement in both arches and soft reline immediate dentures for both arches. Two implants failed after 15 days. (16), the success rate and survival rate were 93.3% for zirconia implants and 100% for titanium implants at a 24-month follow-up. Kohal et al45 observed the stress distribution patterns of zirconia implants (ReImplant), which were found to have low, well distributed, and similar stress distribution compared with titanium implants. In the connections with internal hexagon, the walls of the implant neck are flared towards the inside and end with an anti-rotational hexagon. The operative phases concerning the cementation are very simple, which means it can be used even by less experienced operators. However, it is important to underline that while both treatments improve the maintenance of osseointegration they do not increase its speed: it is not possible to establish which of the two treatments has a greater effect on bone growth. In addition to excellent cosmetic results, zirconia implants allow a degree of osseointegration and soft tissue response that is superior to that of titanium dental implants. They were also found to have low, well distributed, and similar stress distribution when compared with titanium implants. Thus, the inclusion criteria for articles were as follows: (1) Articles were related to zirconia dental implants, and (2) abstracts were obtained when the full texts could not be obtained. After decades of successful (35,36,37,38,39) single implant to full arch rehabilitations with titanium implants, there is scientific evidence that they are prone to corrosion which results in the release metal ions in peri-implant tissues and are now seen as a significant contributor to the occurrence of peri-implantitis (40, 41) There are also increased reports of titanium sensitivity and the mechanism of its occurrence (42). Zirconia vs Titanium Implants: Strength. The temporary prosthesis was designed and milled in PMMA material. As already mentioned, in the two-piece system, the implant can be connected to the abutment in two different ways: screwed or cemented. Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants 2000; 15: 331-344. The overall success rate was reported as 98%. The full text of articles was obtained where possible. They are considered to be inert in the body and exhibit minimal ion release compared with metallic implants. The fabrication of a hybrid prosthesis was started by going through the process of making a conventional denture. Thus, the purpose of this review is to summarize research articles conducted on zirconia dental implants, compare them with titanium dental implants, and provide information on zirconia dental implant osseointegration. In vitro studies examining bone-implant contact of different implants, Removal torque testing (RTQ) evaluation according to surface characteristic of implants. This paper is to show two case reports that demonstrates the possibility and feasibility of full-arch implant restorations with two-piece zirconia implants. Association of masticatory performance with age, posterior occlusal contacts, occlusal force, and salivary flow in older adults. The growing demand for metal-free restorations even for complex treatments, such as full-arch restoration in edentulous patients, spurred research on alternatives such as zirconia implants. In another study, the same group24 investigated peri-implant osteogenesis and biologic fixation for various zirconia sandblasted titanium implant surfaces and a machined titanium surface. The mean RTQ for machined zirconia implants was 25.9 N/cm, the mean RTQ for zirconia rough implants was 40.5 N/cm, and the mean RTQ for SLA titanium implants was 105.2 N/cm.
