Abstract: our years ago, with the London Games upcoming, I wrote, in a Dental Olympians Comment, about the rise of zirconia as a base material for crowns and bridges. Whether this has continued to make inroads into the metal ceramic market is uncertain. I also wrote about the possibility of the dental implant becoming a mainstream part of everyday dental practice. Recent evidence on the exponential rise in peri-implantitis and peri-implant mucositis (published recently in Dental Update2) had led me to question my glowing report on implants four years ago, along with others, such as the great Jan Lindhe.3
