Our ceramic implant series BRIGHT

Ceramic implant series
SDS1.2
All ceramic implants feature the Dynamic Thread® thread, which has proven itself in all bone classes. The upper part of the abutment, the so-called “abutment post”, is designed so that one-piece SDS1.2 implants can heal very well with a long-term temporary.
Ceramic implant series

SDS2.2

The two-part implant system is based on over 18 years of experience in the development of ceramic implants. The load-bearing upper implant part and the implant-abutment connection have been designed to be very solid. The connection is not in the implant, but in the lower part of the abutment, the so-called tulip.

Implanting according to bone classes

SDS Drilling Protocol by Dr. Ulrich Volz
vollkeramischer Bohrer für metallfreies Implantieren
Metal-free implant placement with all-ceramic drills made from high-performance ceramic alumina-toughened zirconia (ATZ). All instruments that come into contact with patients are always made from ceramic. The rotating instruments made from ATZ ceramic are characterized by very long service lives with consistently sharp cutting surfaces. The clearly arranged surgical tray is structured according to bone class (IV-III-II-I) and thus simplifies compliance with the various drilling protocols. The tray is backward and forward compatible, with this applying to all implants ever sold by SDS as well as to implants that SDS is currently developing. The drills are laser marked (type and diameter) and also color coded, meaning that these drilling sequences are very easy to follow.
All dental problems are eliminated at once in just a single session or sequence. This is because only when all potential interference factors, such as metals, osteonecroses, root-treated teeth and other interference fields, are completely removed is the immune system able to perform its work to perfection, reliably heal around the implants and eliminate system stress. This is all the more important because ceramic implants heal completely neutrally and thus only in healthy bones with a functioning immune system.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions about SDS ceramic implants

Optimized production methods and material selection allow for grinding in accordance with our defined grinding protocol in a specified area. In constant load tests in accordance with DIN EN 1SO 14801, which are so important for approvals, SDS has demonstrated that the mechanical properties do not change whether the implants are ground down or not.
All SDS implants are self-tapping and, in most cases, can be placed as immediate implants.
In the case of the zirconia used by SDS, the gingiva behaves similarly in the area of the of the implant shoulder to how it does on bone. It can grow onto the implant shoulder and create a bacteria-proof seal. We do NOT want to destroy this valuable seal, e.g. by using gingiva formers.
The screw connection has the sole purpose of securely fixing the abutment at the target depth during the cementation process.
This is ensured constructively by choosing the appropriate thread pitch.
Depending on the producer, there are two different manufacturing methods for different geometries. Implants and abutments are either ground from “waves” that have been sintered through or milled from pre-sintered “rods” and then sintered through. The different manufacturing methods have no effect on the product properties. Our producers have continually improved their production processes over the past decades and achieve identical results in the meaningful DIN EN ISO 14801 constant load test.
They are less complex than two-piece implants and better represent the idea of a replacement tooth that is as close to a natural tooth as possible, as they can be more easily individualized by simply grinding them down. Furthermore, fewer sessions are required from the implant placement procedure to the final prosthetic restoration.
There are four basic rules:
  • The prosthetic restoration of SDS implants is similar to that of a natural tooth
  • Individualization of the abutment post and the implant shoulder can be easily achieved using a Red Ring grinding wheel in accordance with our grinding protocol.
  • When using tissue-level two-piece SDS implants, a one-piece implant is created from the two-piece implant by cementing the abutment
  • The final crown/bridge must always be cemented onto the implant shoulder so that chewing pressure is transferred across the entire implant.
Detailed information on this topic can be found in our media library.
The Dynamic Thread™ has an especially aggressive design in the lower third of the implants and ensures sufficient primary stability. Furthermore, there is an extremely large selection of implant diameters and lengths in order to ensure that the optimal implant is always placed. In our SDS user course and on our SDS media library, we also explain to you corresponding techniques that have been specially developed and optimized for SDS implants.
SDS has a very generous policy in the event of damage and replaces all products. We only charge a handling fee for products that have been accidentally opened or dropped.
    1. 1. SDS has a sophisticated ceramic implant system that allows users to perform implants for any indication that can also be treated with titanium implants. Based on experience gathered with zirconia implants over more than 20 years and daily use at the company’s own SWISS BIOHEALTH CLINIC, SDS solutions have been continuously developed and optimized. Only the products that have proven themselves during everyday clinical practice are brought to the market for our customers. -> In order to safely treat all indications with ceramic implants, the SDS portfolio includes one- and two-piece implants in various diameters (3.2 mm to 7 mm) and different lengths (6 mm to 17 mm), special shapes, sinus implants and short implants with a length of 6 mm.
 
    1. 2. For all of these implants, we have the corresponding bone class based drilling protocol. The surgical protocol is designed in such a way that an insertion torque of 35 Ncm is never exceeded, meaning that the bone is not overheated or damaged during the insertion process. This is especially important, as zirconia implants and drills do not dissipate heat.
 
    1. 3. The SWISS BIOHEALTH CONCEPT—biological dentistry with ceramic implants: In addition to the ceramic implant system, SDS adopts the treatment concept of treating patients in a fully biological manner. This entails the removal of metal and the elimination of interference fields before progressing to the solution that preserves bone and soft tissue. Besides providing an esthetically pleasing complete dental solution, this also means making a significant contribution to improving the patient’s health. We improve the health of patients, and ever more patients are asking for exactly this.
 
  1. 4. All of these concepts and techniques are taught at the company’s own training center. Our knowledge and experience is shared and passed on.
  2. -> Benefit: In Dr. Ulrich Volz’ user course, you will gain the benefit of his experience and learning curve spanning 27 years within just two days. We have already done almost everything wrong that can be done wrong. Benefit from our knowledge too.
20 years of experience = ceramic implants 27 years of experience = biological dentistry

Our expert team is at your disposal.  In our download area, you can find our product catalog, the concept brochure and much more. Getting started with SDS: To help you get started with SDS, we have a so-called selection procedure during which our team will put together a set of implants for you for the first implantation as part of the joint case planning. You will only be charged for what you actually use, and we will provide you with a professionally prepared loan tray for a corresponding fee. Specials: “20+1”—please contact our SDS team directly for advice.
We are now able to place more than 85 % of SDS implants immediately. This requires a special treatment protocol and appropriate further training. Surgically oriented biological dentistry according to the SWISS BIOHEALTH CONCEPT plays a major role in our further training program, in which the ceramic implants are “only” one component of this unique treatment concept. During our two-day “Ceramic implants and biological dentistry” user course with Dr. Volz, the differences between ceramic implants and titanium implants are explained in detail. You are shown how our SDS implants should be placed correctly, including the special SDS drilling protocol according to bone classes and the complete treatment protocol of surgically oriented biological dentistry—always with “the healthy patient” as our primary objective. Benefit from our 20-year experience and learning curve with ceramic implants and more than 27 years’ expertise in biological dentistry that we are happy to pass on to you during these two course days. Since the introduction of the SDS user courses, the success rate of our SDS users has greatly improved and contributed significantly to the benefit of everyone involved, including the patients.

In 2019, more than 23.000 SDS implants were sold in the DACH region (Germany/Austria/Switzerland).
SDS has a total of over 500 users in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the USA and Japan, among others. Espacially capable users are displayed as “Top Users”
We believe that bone formed by the body itself is always the best bone and have therefore developed a treatment concept with our special implant shapes and the Swiss Biohealth Concept which in most cases makes it possible to completely dispense with foreign materials.
The dietary supplements we have developed are a key component of the treatment concept and improve our success rates.
Unlike titanium implants, zirconia implants only heal in clean, healthy bone and the dietary supplements help to rebuild bone and soft tissue.
You do not require any instruments or prosthetic parts. The procedure is the same as that for a natural tooth that is being prepared for a crown or bridge restoration: grind, mold, place.
Generally speaking, three months in the lower jaw and six months in the upper jaw. These times can often be reduced if good primary stability has been achieved. Most SDS implants are placed immediately but not loaded.

Zirconia always contains yttrium oxide (≠ yttrium) in order to fix the material’s lattice structure in the desired state. SDS implants are made from the best raw materials available and exhibit radioactivity that is within the range of the natural radiation that we are all exposed to.
SDS ceramic implants are at least as stable as titanium implants. Last year’s (2019) annual assessment revealed a fracture rate of 0.2% across all products.
