Biological properties and tissue integration of zirconia and titanium dental implants
Implant therapy demonstrates long-term high survival rates on the restorative and implant level. Much less is know on the biologic integration of titanium and zirconia dental implants. Evidence suggests that the implant material influences tissue integration on the hard and soft tissue level. Speculation is ongoing whether or not zirconia used as an implant material provides benefits predominantly at the soft tissue level.
