Zirconium

Non-metal zirconium ceramic porcelain

Zirconium oxide has been used for many years in many industrial and medical applications.This oxide is a powdered material that has been proved to be safe and has the advantage of being white ,translucent and metal-free ldeal for dental work.

Titanium implants are used regularly for dental work,but some fridings have discovered titanium particles can spread into surrounding soft tissue.The long-term result of this is unknown and has not been studred yer.

Zirconium implants are non-metal,prefered by many people because of this.They are the perfect choice for single slage implants,reduceing bone loss,bacterial problems as well as lessening the chance of movement.Soft tissue around this kind of implant has been studied and proved to reacr more favourably to zirconium implants than titanium implants.These studies have also proven zirconium to be much stronger and durable.

Zirconium oxide crowns and bridges are so strong they can be used anywhere in the mouth.Zirconium oxide can whitsrand the biting pressure of the front teeth as well as back teeth grinding.

The look of zirconium crowns and bridges are so close to natural teeth it is hard to tell the difference and this quality makes it very useable within dental work and esthetics.Zirconium dental work can be fixed useling traditional cements.

Zirconium oxide ceramic porcelain is recommended for anterior or posterior single crowns and multi-unit bridges because they are strong,durable and fantastic.
