Occlusal grinding of the abutment postoperatively is not necessary. an integrated retention groove ensures secure retention of the insertion tool and accessory parts. The new abutment has been designed uniformly for all standard implants.

They must meet Z-Systems’ quality criteria. :: Abutments easily modifiable. Z-Systems is registered with the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Depending on the requirements for the system component. Certification :: Medical devices from Z-Systems bear the CE marking and are manufactured according to the specifications of ISO 9001. the composition and the production processes for the zirconia will vary. :: The design and material allow the prosthetic procedure and treatment to be carried out in a similar manner as for natural teeth. We are not. Only leading manufacturers of dental ceramic products are choosen as manufacturer of Z-Look3 Evo SLM implants and components produced from zirconia. The abutments can be ground easily in the mouth. An overview of the Z-Look3 implant system features: :: Implants and surgical instruments are produced from zirconia. :: The design allows compensation of implant divergences of up to 20º (by simple intraoral grinding). ISO 13485. the selection of the raw materials as well as control during the cleaning and production processes are extremely important. :: Four different one-piece implant designs for a broad range of indications. We have successfully tested our implants. In the production of the components.˘ Z-Look3 Evo SLM 6< Many people are satisfied with what is available. no specific prosthetic parts required. . whether it is an implant. :: The Z-Look3 implant system enables completely metal-free treatment. Certified and approved: white aesthetics thanks to zirconia (zirconium dioxide). Many follow the maxim: no experiments. there is more than one grade of zirconia to choose from. However. a cutting tool or other surgical tool. as well as MDD 93/42/EEC. :: The implant design is ideal for treatment with CAD-CAM prosthodontics. Material :: All Z-Look3 ceramic components are produced from zirconia (zirconium dioxide). Information about the different types of zirconia used can be found with the descriptions of the individual components. That is why Z-Systems is here today: We develop and produce metal-free solutions in dental implantology made from high performance special ceramics.

Longterm temporaries.˘ Z-Look3 Evo SLM :: Implants systems Implants >7 Material :: All zirconia implants are produced from ZrO2 TZP-A HIP bioceramics according to ISO 13356. protective splints or hollowed out interim prostheses can be used for this purpose. red hand piece rotational speed. The material is reprocessed after the sintering process by being further compacted in industrial furnance for three days at 2000 bar. :: The star-shaped apical cut-out serves to receive bone chips. For bones in category D1/D2 or hard cortical bone. The prerequisites :: Sufficient bone quantity must be available. reduces the possibility of bone loss. Osseointegration and healing time :: The unique patented (patent pending) laser modified Z-Look3 Evo SLM surface has an increased surface roughness. When inserting the implant. the material reaches its bending strength. which is much higher than with commonly used titanium. max. the implants must be protected from load during healing. max. therefore no microgap. Implant characteristics – an overview :: The abutment can be ground in the same way as natural teeth. Indications :: Z-Look3 Evo SLM implants are designed for surgical implantation into the upper and lower jaw for the attachment of prosthodontic appliances to replace missing teeth. pre-cutting with appropriate tap is recommended. manually ground implants have no increased risk of fracture. :: The apical part of the implant is conical to improve introduction into the cavity. The results show no impairment in use of the ground Z-Look3 implants. :: The wide implant shoulder enables compensation of implant divergence of up to 20º. red diamond.e. * Z-System has had the manual grinding ability investigated for you by the renowned Fraunhofer Institute of Material Mechanics. Insertion. :: Implants can be inserted further or unscrewed even after the abutment is modified. This material has been in use for a long time in the production of hip joint prostheses. which significantly improves the physical characteristics of the base material. Among other things. A healing time of three months for the lower jaw and six months for the upper jaw is recommended. . Note :: Please note our detailed instructions for surgical and prosthetic procedures. Z-Systems will be pleased to make the results available to you on request. Simultaneous sinus floor elevation with implantation is only indicated if there is at least 7 mm of remaining bone available in the vertical dimension. The thread must be covered by at least 1 mm of healthy bone. The Z-Look3 Evo SLM implants are selftapping. Due to the one-piece design. :: The rounded thread prevents tension and notching effects. due to the «Hot Isostatic Post Compaction» process. maximum water cooling. Special care should be taken with the treatment protocol i. we recommend a torque of 35 Ncm. water cooling and low pressure.* :: One-piece design. working without pressure.
