Zirconium Dental Implants
For patients who are seeking a high quality tooth replacement choice, we are pleased to offer a full-ceramic dental implant as an alternative to the conventional dental implant. Compared to the traditional titanium dental implant, our Zirconium implant post and abutment are designed as a single unit. This streamlined design has proven to be healthier for the gum tissue as it is free from the crevices and margins that would promote the growth of bacteria. The Zirconium implant is 100% white, eliminating the appearance of dark metal along the gumline which is sometimes unavoidable when titanium implants are used.

THE BENEFITS OF METAL-FREE DENTAL IMPLANTS:
- As a dental implant material, Zirconium is biocompatible, as it is not rejected by the natural gum tissue nor bone.
- Metal-free implants are an accepted holistic treatment alternative for patients who seek ‘whole health’ dental solutions.
- Whereas the metal from a Titanium dental implant may sometimes be seen as a dark line near the gums, the more natural appearance of Zirconium can eliminate this effect.
- At the gumline, the Zirconium implant’s unified designed does not lend itself to the accumulation of plaque and tartar in the way that is common with titanium.
- The Zirconium implant only requires a one-stage surgical approach which greatly reduces the length of the procedure while minimizing your discomfort.
ZIRCONIUM—MORE THAN JUST BEAUTIFUL
It is hard to ignore the fabulous aesthetic properties of a Zirconium restoration, however, the cosmetic benefit is not the most appealing characteristic of this material when it comes to implant dentistry. Zirconium is a non-corrosive restorative material that is nonallergenic and safe for any patient.
