  1. I was wondering if a patient needed an upper molar implant if they could have the option of doing a full zircoia implant and by-pass the titanium kind? I am worried about long-term effects of titanium in the blood. Great blog…VERY informative and comprehensive

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Steve,

      Keep in mind that Titanium has been in use since the mid 1960’s. It has a very long track record of success and literature to support its safety. Zirconia is a good material but it is does not have long-term data to support its use yet. I wouldnt put it in my own mouth yet and possibly not ever. Time will tell.

      I think we talked on another post too???
