Metal Free Implants
Dr. John Potter Discusses Metal-Free Dental Implants
The titanium implant has long been the standard for replacing a missing tooth. However, Zirconia dental implants also known as ( holistic implants, Z Implants, metal free implants ) have been very popular in Europe for several years. Recently, this metal free implant has been FDA approved and introduced in the United States. The Zirconia dental implants are made of special ceramic (Zirconium oxide) that is used in the spaceships because of its high resistance to fracture and heat. There are many benefits to using this metal free alternative.
Improved Esthetics: The dark line around the gum line disappears because the white color of Zirconium substitutes metal appearance associated with Titanium.
Holistic Dental Implants: The Z implant is an option for absolute metal-free dental care as it is no longer necessary to use titanium.
Healthier Gums: Less plaque and calculus is retained when using ceramic implants and crowns, this improves the health of your gums.
Along with these advantages over Titanium, the Zirconium implant has all the required qualities to be a material of choice for dental implantation. These qualities are comparable to titanium. Zirconium is an inert material with very low allergic potential. They are very strong and have a proven high level of osseointegration and bone-to-implant contact.
