Dr. Ireland offers the Z-Systems non metal implants, a more bio compatible alternative to titanium implants.
An FDA Approved 100 % Metal Free 1-Piece, 2-Piece & Tapered Ceramic Dental Implants. This is complimented by the ONLY Full Ceramic Surgical Kit on the market!
Z-SYSTEMS implants consist of a pure zirconium oxide, high-performance ceramic as per ISO 13356, and are superior to titanium implants in many areas.
Bones and gums integrate better with zirconium oxide ceramics.
Less plaque accretion than on titanium. This reduces the risk of perimplantitis as well as cardiovascular diseases and strokes.
Thanks to the white material, no gray shadows are visible even with thin or receding gums.
Z-SYSTEMS implants are metal-free, biocompatible, conduct neither heat nor electrical energy, and cause no irritation to the immune system.
Ceramic is much stronger than titanium.
Ceramic implants are opaque to X-rays, and easier to recognize in critical situations.
