Dental implants have become the number one solution for anyone with missing teeth. While titanium implants work for some, many patients express concerns about its metal properties. Some concerns include:

  • Metal is susceptible to corrosion
  • Metal conducts heat and electricity
  • Metal may cause sensitivity to an allergy
  • Hazardous bacteria can accumulate in a titanium-secured implant
  • American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine
  • A dark titanium “shadow” can sometimes be seen around the edges of the implant

As holistic dentists, we ensure that our zirconia dental implants are biocompatible, which means that it’s not harmful to living tissue. Dr. Sambataro can provide you with the full implant experience without the drawbacks associated with traditional titanium-secured implants.


Zirconia dental implants are safe,100 percent metal-free, and effective for replacing missing teeth. This material will fuse with living bone, creating strong structural support for the artificial teeth.

Our zirconia implants consist of three ceramic pieces that fit together tightly, eliminating space for dangerous bacteria to accumulate. The screw (the actual implant) connecting the three pieces together is specially designed for a strong ceramic-to-ceramic connection.

Zirconia dental implants offer the same advantages as traditional implants and more. These benefits include:

  • Improve ability to chew and speak with ease
  • Easy to maintain
  • Prevents the loss of bone from the jaw caused by missing teeth
  • Metal-free solution
  • More convenient than a removable appliance
  • Naturally integrated into your jaw
  • Natural appearance and function
  • Durable and impervious to decay


Zirconia dental implants offer a long-lasting solution for missing teeth, allowing you to proudly show off your smile. The best way to determine if you’re a candidate is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Sambataro at our Ellicott City practice.
