20 years of research and innovation

The philosophy of the Z1 is clear: it is specifically designed to suit the anatomy of every patient. It is the only "tissue level" implant which adapts selected materials - zirconia and titanium - to the surrounding tissues.

Several generations of Z1 implants have succeeded each other with the same goal: to bring your patient the highest level of comfort.

  • Proven Technology
  • Proven Surgical Protocols
  • Proven Clinical Outcomes
  • Proven Economics

United around this incomparable technology, Z1 users can rapidly learned how to benefit from its advantages, ensuring peace of mind and total confidence in the quality of their implant services.


  • On a macroscopic scale the Z1 includes all the components required for the success of your implant surgery: biocompatibility, mechanical resistance, primary stability and longevity.

  • On a microscopic scale, the surface condition of zirconia and pure titanium plays an essential role in the stabilization of soft tissues and in the perfect osseointegration. With an average success rate of 98.6%*, you can rely on the Z1 efficiency.

    The Z1 system is universal and can suit all types of prosthetic restoration: cemented, screw-retained or removable solutions.

    Compared to a bone level implant system, you handle all prosthetic solutions with less product codes.

* Information collected from the data of the Smiletranquility ® Program based
on 15.534 patients with Z1 implants from 01.2014 to 01.2016.

With the Z1 implant, you obtain clinical outcomes unmatched by a traditional bone level implant.

The zirconia emergence of the Z1 behaves as a protective shield for both crestal bone and gingiva, preventing any inflammatory or infectious phenomena.

The Z1 ensures a better aesthetic management of the gingival tissue by generating a creeping attachment of the gingiva and a reconstruction of the papillae:

  • With a Z1 placed in anterior position, there is no greyish transparency.
  • With a Z1 placed in posterior position, the cervical limits of your prosthetic rehabilitation are optimised by the zirconia platform.
  • I am not afraid of seeing grey spots appear under my gingiva after a few years! "

Better cell behaviour on zirconia.

The advantage of the "1 stage" implant is precisely the fact that it does not need 2 surgeries! The Z1 makes you benefit from numerous advantages at every step:

  • you open the surgical site only once: comfortable for you and your patients,

  • the Z1 is perfectly autonomous and manages by itself bone and gingival healing, as it perfectly fits both tissues’ requirements,

  • you have good visibility, you can observe your movements and perfectly control the components to connect with your Z1 implant,

  • you no longer need a healing screw, you work with a cover screw [included with the implant] visible and easily accessible,

  • your sutures are made around the implant or unnecessary with the flapless technique.

  • Every step is easier with the Z1 implant. "

The Z1 is the favourite implant of implantologists who worry about optimising their chairtime.

Like them, estimate your profit by using the Z1:

  • only 1 surgery needed, which means that your operating room and your sterilisation line will only be used once for the same patient,

  • your operating room agenda is totaly mastered, the aesthetic outcomes achieved on first intention reduce the number of secondary surgical procedures,

  • your maintenance appointments are reduced because there are less risks of periodontal diseases, and thus less post-surgical treatments

  • your inventory is simplified by a lower and optimised number of products.

  • Thanks to the Z1, I save chairtime that I dedicate to the development of my patient portfolio. "

The periodontal concept: a challenge met

Dental implants must integrate with three surrounding tissues - the bone, connective tissue and epithelial tissue.

The main challenge of the implant's periodontal integration is the long-term stability of the implant/tissue interface.

This challenge is met by the Z1.
