What Are Zirconium Dental Implants?

  • August 22, 2012

Zirconium dental implants are a metal-free tooth replacement option Dr. DiGiallorenzo has been using since 2009, when he became the first doctor in America to offer this unique service from Z-Systems. As an alternative to metal implants, zirconium dental implants are just as reliable and can help patients achieve results that look even more natural.

How so?

Because traditional implants use titanium, they can cause dark lines around the gumline. Zirconia, on the other hand, has a more natural color. As a result, your replacement teeth will look more at home with the rest of your smile.

But that’s not the only benefit that comes with zirconium dental implants.

Because zirconium dental implants are metal-free, patients who are sensitive to metal can enjoy a restored smile without any adverse reactions. What’s more, offering a metal-free option is consistent with our goal of providing holistic dental care to patients from Collegeville, Williamsport, and the Philadelphia area.

What is holistic dentistry?

Holistic dentistry looks beyond your teeth and gums to your overall health. At Dr. DiGiallorenzo’s Collegeville and Williamsport offices, we don’t want to just treat the symptoms of a problem; we want to treat the problem itself.
