The dental implant community currently works under the assumption that titanium intolerance and corrosion aren’t real risks to the patient. If there’s a complication or negative reaction, it’s often blamed on the implant technique, prosthetic work, or the patient’s health and lifestyle. There’s an emphasis on selecting the “ideal” patient for dental implants, but only a handful of patients can actually meet the requirements necessary to be “ideal,” and there’s a growing need to focus on dental implants with long-term stability in the “average” patient.
Our team at Zircon Medical recently hosted Dr. Sofia Karapataki, a world-renowned dentist, periodontologist, and implantologist, on our podcast series to discuss the myth of the “ideal” dental implant patient and the need to shift from titanium to zirconia implants.
