Ceramic implants showed in the past a very nice soft tissue behavior but the clinical success was compromised due to lack of osseointegration in the early stage and mechanical complication like fracture in the long term run. New material like Yttrium stabilized Zirconia ceramics promise a higher mechanical stability. While mechanical stability can be proven by in-vitro-testing the course of osseointegration had to be determined by in-vivo condition. A pilot study on four mongrel dogs was performed to compare the course of osseointegration of root-form and parallel walled one-piece ZrO-ceramic implants in comparison to titanium implants.
