Meet the zirconium implants
It is well known that in the world that rules us today, technology and progress are the order of the day in this sense dentistry is not an exception. In implantology are used to hearing the famous titanium implants, but did you know that there implants nonmetallic?

Yes, implants are known as "zirconium implants". What are they? They are artificial roots intended for a replacement for missing teeth roots. They are made of zirconium dioxide (ZrO2), a material that has great potential for use in dentistry in the coming years. One of its main advantages is that it allows faster integration than titanium, in theory, by the fact that integration is not mechanical but chemical, this process is called biointegration.

Another notable advantage of these implants is its white color, ideal for implants placed in the anterior, in the smile line, because that would give a highly aesthetic finish without viewing a black border in the gingival area of the crown tooth (which happens in some cases with titanium implants, especially in patients with receding gums).

We can say that these implants are a great option for the future, without dismissing the titanium implants, as these are supported by a myriad of investigations, trials and success stories of patients who have had these implants placed . What is certain is that when undergoing dental implant treatment, the dentist will determine the best option for you, considering your bone conditions and other factors that will be critical to the success of your treatment.

A reference in Spain and the world is in Barcelona Iceberg Oral company, pioneer in Spain in the manufacture and research of these implants, if you want more information you can visit the website of this company.
