“Zirconia dental implants offer the best combination of strength, appearance and durability,” says Dr. Vladimir Gashinsky of Holistic Dental Center in Milburn, NJ. Dr. Gashinsky says Zirconia dental implants offer significant advantages over standard titanium implants and may be the best choice for many patients. “Zirconia Dental Implants look better, promote healthier gums and are extremely strong compared to conventional implants plus they are biocompatible,” says Dr. Gashinsky. “Zirconium is an inert material with a very low allergic potential. This is important as recent studies show that about 4% of the population is sensitive to titanium.”
Dr. Gashinsky is one of a small number of dentists in the US who are certified to place Zirconia implants.“Replacement of missing teeth with titanium dental implants has been standard procedure for years, but now the Zirconia implant offers patients a holistic, metal-free alternative,” says Dr. Gashinsky.
“Since Zirconia is a white ceramic material, the implants are much more natural-looking than the metallic color of titanium,” says Dr. Gashinsky. “Zirconia is very strong, is resistant to chemical corrosion and the material does not conduct electricity or heat. The Zirconium Oxide material is used in spacecraft because of its high resistance to fracturing and heat.”
“Zirconia implants have a high level of ‘osseointegration’ meaning that the jaw bone will bond well with the implant, resulting in firmly seated implants,” says Dr. Gashinsky. “Zirconia implants and crowns are also more hygienic because they retain less plaque and calculus than titanium, which promotes healthier gums.”
