Why ceramics?

Ceramic implants – The alternative to titanium implants.


The Only FDA Approved 100 % Metal Free 1-Piece, 2-Piece & Tapered Ceramic Dental Implants  Complimented by the ONLY Full Ceramic Surgical Kit on the market!

Z-SYSTEMS implants consist of a pure zirconium oxide, high-performance ceramic as per ISO 13356, and are superior to titanium implants in many areas.

More natural.

Bones and gums integrate better with zirconium oxide ceramics.1

More sustainable.

Less plaque accretion than on titanium. This reduces the risk of perimplantitis as well as cardiovascular diseases and strokes.2

More aesthetic.

Thanks to the white material, no gray shadows are visible even with thin or receding gums.3


Z-SYSTEMS implants are metal-free, biocompatible, conduct neither heat nor electrical energy, and cause no irritation to the immune system.4


Ceramic is much stronger than titanium.

More visible.

Ceramic implants are opaque to X-rays, and easier to recognize in critical situations.

Having used Z-SYSTEMS allzirconia implants for more than nine years, I have seen this company’s commitment to continuously improving their products. They are currently introducing their sixth generation of zirconia implants to the U.S., when no other company is past their first generation zirconia implant in the U.S. market. In fact, most other companies haven’t even been in the market for a year. I look fondly at our 8-year results. The implants, the restorations, and the soft tissues look as beautiful as the day the implants were restored. There is no better motivation to go back again and again to Z-SYSTEMS products for each new case!

Z-SYSTEMS has been used at our practice for the past 6 years. Our long term results shows favorable clinical outcomes with excellent soft tissue contours and stable bone levels. Furthermore, having performed extensive microscopy and microanalysis research on Z-SYSTEMS implants, this material has shown to be durable and for the most part resistant to aging. Z-SYSTEMS continuing commitment has been proven to me through their ongoing support of my research projects to allow for further enhancement and innovations of their products and in turn lead the Zirconia implant market!

Z-SYSTEMS is a true game changer in the implant arena. It is clear why Z-SYSTEMS leads the market with the most trusted ceramic implants in the world. Having used ceramic implants for the past 6 years, I was very excited to start using Z-SYSTEMS products in the last year.

Z-SYSTEMS ongoing commitment to quality & continual innovations provide practitioners with more flexibility and options than any other ceramic implant company, and allows me to treat the specific needs of each and every patient. History matters when it comes to quality treatments!
