FORWARD EVOLUTION: Zirconia Ceramic Dental Implants presented by Dr. Jacques Imbeau

Medical implants are used for a wide range of applications. Recent research shows that commonly used metals such as titanium can cause a range of adverse consequences, especially in an individual with specific genetic polymorphisms. This presentation is about the evolution and development of ceramic dental implants that provide clear advantages and benefits over metals like titanium. The biological information that is relevant for dental implants is also valid for any other medical applications. This presentation will explain the development of zirconia implants as well as relevant clinical cases.
