Ceramic dental implants have established a strong presence in general implant dentistry. Patient demand for metal-free solutions is increasing, and the development of new materials, micro-rough surfaces and improved treatment protocols has enabled clinicians to use ceramic dental implants as a reliable treatment alternative to titanium implants. The patient should be informed about the advantages and disadvantages of both material options and involved in decision-making if a ceramic implant is presented as a treatment option. This procedure is standard in our dental office, shown by the following case report.
