Metal-Free Zirconium Dental Implants

Biological Dental Implants

Dr. DiGiallorenzo, with offices in Collegeville and Williamsport near Philadelphia, PA, is the most experienced metal free implant dentist in the United States. In 2009, Z-Systems, a Swiss biotechnology company, selected the office of Collegeville, PA periodontist Dr. David DiGiallorenzo to be the first office in the United States to begin evaluation, dissemination, and usage of the Z-Look zirconia dental implant, a metal-free dental implant.

Metal-Free Dental ImplantsOver the last three years, Dr. DiGiallorenzo has developed and utilized two generations of implant designs with a third coming. He travelled to Switzerland in summer of 2012 to view an even better design for the U.S. market. Dealing with zirconium requires an extremely experienced specialist to achieve success. Dr. DiGiallorenzo has more experience and understanding than anyone in the United States on how to achieve success with zirconium and when it's best to use these metal-free dental implants. We integrate organic bio active modifiers (PGRF), material testing sensitivities (Melissa test, Clifford testing, and bio feedback), nutrition, reflexology, massage, meridian balancing, and metal detoxification protocols using both infrared sauna and IV glutathione as well as Ester-C vitamin in our holistic wellness approach.

Metal-free dental implants have several benefits:

  • Zirconia has become popular as a desirable implant material because it interacts well with the natural gum and bone, making it biocompatible.
  • Metal-free implants are biological dental implants, meaning they’re a more holistic option for those interested in treatments that support total health.
  • For cosmetic reasons, zirconia is a better choice. Titanium dental implants can cause a dark line around the gum. Zirconia is a more natural color, eliminating this effect.
  • When it comes to dental hygiene, zirconium is favored by many periodontists because it discourages the buildup of plaque and tartar in a way that titanium does not. That means less risk of gum disease in the future.

Because of the increase in interest in holistic dentistry and metal-free treatments, zirconia dental implants are gaining in popularity. For patients who suffer from sensitivity to titanium, metal-free dental implants offer an alternative.

In addition to offering the latest in dental implant technology and materials, Dr. DiGiallorenzo incorporates the proven use of stem cells in his implantology practice. By coating the implant itself in natural stem cells, he encourages faster and more efficient healing of the bone and soft tissues of the jaw. Our patients love that their recovery time is shortened considerably, and that the holistic nature of the procedure means that they're treating their bodies as well as they are treating their teeth and gums.
