In the current literature, there is still scarce documentation on zirconia implants. Some authors have compared it to that of titanium implants fifteen years ago.
At the moment, we cannot definitively state that zirconia implants are going to become a reliable metal-free implant alternative. Yet patients are becoming increasingly interested in metal-free prosthetic treatments. For this reason, clinicians should be ready for a scenario where they will have to manage cases involving zirconia implants.
“Patients are becoming increasingly interested in metal-free prosthetic treatments”
People who are ‘Pro Zirconia’ and defend its use claim that zirconia implants can now be considered among our ‘medical arsenal’ to treat patients who demand non-metallic implants.
