IDM - ZIRCONIA: Metal-Free Implantology

Although titanium is commonly used for dental implants, it is a metal and is thus susceptible to corrosion in the mouth. Ceramic materials such as zirconia offer many advantages over titanium.

.Why consider IDM - ZIRCONIA ceramic dental implants instead of titanium implant ?

More zirconia ceramic options to suit your needs!

  • Cosmetic superiority - Asthetically outstanding.

  • Excellent osseointegration.

  • Bio-inert * - no corrosion, no galvanism.

  • One or two phase advanced implant systems - to suit all clinical conditions.

  • Improved patient recovery time, especially with the two phase option.

  • Comparable costs (titanium vs ceramic implants)

  • Made from natural zirconia

  • As strong as titanium without the disadvantages.

So why have a metallic implant that is the wrong colour, can corrode, conduct electrical currents and react with other metals when you can have a white, bio-inert*, high performance IDM - ZIRCONIA ceramic implant ?

The implant in the middle is a two part titanium implant while the one on the right is a monobloc zirconia ceramic implant. Which one would you rather have in your mouth?

Interview with  Prof. D. Bosshardt, Prof. A. Mombelli & Dr.med.dent. First Tartch at the 2017 6th Ceramic Implant Congress in Hamburg, Germany.

And for the first time, metal-free implant surgery can be performed at the Integrative Centre for Dental & Natural Health by Dr. Jacques Imbeau using zirconia implants and zirconia surgical tools that leave no metallic residue post surgery. Ask our staff for more information.

* High purity zirconia demonstrate excellent general biocompatibility, but like any other dental material designed for human implantation, it should be tested for individual biocompatibility prior to placement. Individual biocompatibiliy may vary from general biocompatibility depending on genetic characteristics, health status and other individual biological variables.

* * METALS, SUCH AS TITANIUM, CAN INDUCE IMMUNE EFFECTS SUCH AS CHRONIC INFLAMMATORY PROCESSES AND AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES.
