This lecture will address the main benefits and limitations of a 2-piece zirconia oral implant manufactured by injection molding with 2 options of diameters and different prosthetic metal free abutments. Its bioengineering design, mechanical and biological aspects and will be described based with scientific evidence and proven analysis. All will be illustrated with clinical cases with follow up in distinct scenarios, as immediate and conventional loading. Clinical videos will also show in detail all aspects from the surgical and prosthetic workflows.
