Zirconium (Metal-free) Implants
We understand and appreciate our patients’ desire for a holistic approach towards replacing their missing teeth. Peak Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery & Dental Implant Center is proud to offer Zirconium or Metal-Free Dental Implants at our Denver office, which only select dental centers provide. Dr. Noori has extensive experience with the use of Zirconium Implants and we are pleased to offer this option to our patients.
What are Zirconium Implants?
Not long ago, dental implants were a highly acclaimed novel technique. Now, this tooth implant option is commonplace and more accessible to the general public. Research within the field of dental materials has once again revolutionized the field of dental implantology with the introduction of a new material, zirconium.
Metal-free implants, also known as zirconium or all-ceramic implants, are made of zirconium. Zirconium is a naturally occurring, extremely hard, metal-free substance. It is resistant against acids and corrosion. Just as importantly, it is biocompatible which means no allergic reactions should be expected.
These dental implants enable Denver patients who currently experience allergic reactions to avoid any allergies with zirconium-based implants. Until recently, Zirconium implants have only been available in Europe; however, now this tooth implant option is FDA approved and available in the United States.
