Many people have discovered the benefits replacing missing teeth using dental implants. But a lot of dental implants rely on titanium abutments to connect the implant to the jawbone. As more and more dentists and patients are becoming aware of the drawbacks of using metals such as titanium for dental restorations, there’s an increasing demand for metal-free dental implants.
Fortunately, Z-Systems one-piece all zirconia dental implants by our Miami dentist offers the perfect solution for people who are looking for a healthy and reliable metal-free way to restore their smiles with dental implants.
As we learn about the disadvantages of metal restorations, more dentists and patients are opting to go metal-free. The disadvantages of using titanium for dental implants include:
Z Systems, a Swiss company which has been supporting metal-free dentistry since 1981, has a great solution for people who are concerned about titanium-secured implant. Their one-piece all zirconia implants provide a safe and durable alternative.
In order for dental implants to form a secure attachment with your jawbone, they need to be made with biocompatible material. If an dental implant is biocompatible, that means the jawbone can assimilate the implant. As the implant becomes integrated with the jawbone, the jawbone will bond with the implant like the jawbone does with a natural tooth. This process is called osseointegration.
The zirconia in Z Systems one-piece implants is ultra biocompatible. That’s because these implants are sandblasted and laser-modified to create a microscopic texture that enhances osseointegration. Plus, zirconia is a very hydrophilic substance. Hydrophila, often referred to as “wetablility,” is a another characteristic which promotes osseointegration.
Zirconia one-piece dental implants are highly resistant to plaque and they don’t have any connections where gum disease-causing bacteria can penetrate. Plus, Zirconia implants will never corrode and they don’t conduct electricity.
One more thing — Zirconia one-piece implants look fantastic. They’re bright, lifelike, and durable. And with zirconia implants, you’ll never have to worry about seeing any dark metal shadows seeping into view.
