From titanium to zirconia implants
Dr Sofia Karapataki, Greece
Zirconium is a metal with the atomic number 40. Zirconium dioxide (ZrO 2 ) or Zirconia is a ceramic material without any metal properties. It is electrochemically inert causing no galvanising or electrocurrent disturbance effects at an inter- and intracellular level. It is the most bioinert and biocompatible material currently available in the market, with no detected allergies or intolerances. The material exhibits lower surface free energy that leads to hydrophilic reduced plaque (biofilm) accumulation, so, less inflammation is expected leading to superior soft tissue health...
