Borgonovo, Andrea Enrico / Corrocher, Giovanni / Dolci, Marcello / Censi, Rachele / Vavassori, Virna / Maiorana, Carlo
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the esthetic result of monophasic zirconium dental implants, placed in the highly esthetic areas of the jaws.
Material and Methods: In this case series the results of 12 monophasic zirconium dental implants placed in highly esthetic areas of 8 patients (6 male and 2 female). For each implant the Pink Esthetic Score (PES) and the White Esthetic Score (WES) were evaluated. All implants were inserted in fresh postextraction sites.
Results: The esthetic parameters PES/ WES has given a total average value of 15.5 ± 1.5. Analyzing the two indices individually, the PES has given a value equal to 7.5 ± 1 and the WES has given a value equal to 8 ± 1.13. Both values obtained indicate the achievement of an absolutely satisfactory esthetic result.
Conclusion: Within the limits of this study, the zirconium dental implants seems to give excellent results with regard to the esthetic result and for the maintenance of peri-implant soft tissues.
