Naperville, IL – 31 Oct, 2018 – Millions of people around the US suffer from tooth loss and dental implants have been the preferred choice for tooth replacement by dentists for over 30 years. As dental technology has improved there has been a major shift from metal to ceramic dental implants. Metal implants have proven to be strong, long-lasting and highly functional, but many people have issues with metal allergic reactions, gray coloration of the gums and tissue irritation. Fortunately, Z-SYSTEMS, a Swiss based ceramic dental implant company offers ceramic dental implants which, have all the benefits of metal implants, but are metal-free, look like natural teeth and do not cause tissue irritation or allergic reactions.
Ceramic dental implants are made from zirconia which is white in color, stronger than titanium, does not conduct heat or electricity and is made to last a lifetime. Z-SYSTEMS is considered the leader in the ceramic dental implant industry because of its precision engineering, manufacturing process and dedication to helping educate both doctors and patients about the benefits of metal-free tooth replacement.
Z-SYSTEMS continues to prove its dedication to educating local communities by creating a ceramic dental implant educational site focused on the benefits, process and metal-free treatment options available today. The site also addresses issues with metal allergies and hypersensitivities. For people interested in finding a local ceramic dental implant expert dentist near them, the site offers a “Doctor Finder.” Z-SYSTEMS only selects the most respected and skilled ceramic implant experts to be listed as providers on its site. The choice for Z-SYSTEMS local expert dentist in West Chicago and Naperville, IL was quite easy, as Dr. Anthony LaVacca is considered elite in the field of implant dentistry and has been serving the community and patients for years.
Dr. LaVacca was asked why he chooses to partner with Z-SYSTEMS: “Titanium dental implants are known to corrode when placed into a wet environment like a mouth, and this process is accelerated if other metal is present in the teeth. When fluoride is added, metal corrosion also speeds up and can attack the implant surface. With zirconia, which is a biocompatible material, these concerns are less of an issue, as the substance is resistant to corrosion, and it also doesn’t trigger chemical reactions or conduct heat and electricity.”
