Rob, a dentist asks,

I’ve heard that Nobel BioCare’s new all zirconium one piece dental implant, is supposed to come to the U.S. market sometime in 2007. There are also other zirconium implants from other companies on the market.

What do the dentists here think of these new all zirconium implants? Do you think they will osseointegrate as well as titanium, and perform as well as the titanium dental implants? Do you think they will be more prone to fracture? What might some of the benefits of an all zirconium implant be [i can see a one-piece all zirconium implant maybe doing away with the microgap bacterial issue seen with some titanium implants]? Thanks for your thoughts.
