The importance of being metal free
Over the past few years has been registered an increase of pathologies such as dermatitis or eczemas, psoriasis and degenerative skin conditions to unknown aetiology that may depend on the accumulation of heavy metals in the body, caused by the notable increase of their use in all fields.
The heavy metals present in food,medicines, cosmetics and dental material can cause complex clinical cases, local or systemic.
In restorative dentistry, metal alloys, from gold to cobalt, chromium and amalgam have always had an important role.Pathologies such as dermatitis or eczemas, psoriasis and degenerative skin conditions to unknown aetiology may depend on the accumulation of heavy metals in the body, caused by the notable increase of their use in all fields.
There are many metals used in Odontology, combined in different alloys. Among them, Chromium (Cr), Cobalt (Co), Palladium (Pd), Nickel (Ni), Cadmium (Cd), Silver (Ag), Copper (Cu), Mercury (Hg), Platinum (Pt), Gold (Au), Titanium (Ti).
The metals, freed over time due to the wear of the dental prostheses alloys that the body can not physiologically eliminate due to an excess of accumulation over the years, reach the gastro-intestinal tract through the saliva. They penetrate the blood and lymphatic system via the mucosa and deposit on the tissues of organs that can be very far from the mouth cavity, generating complex symptoms, not always easy to interpret.
The significant increase of allergies and the always increasing presence of symptoms of incompatibility with the metals entail having to pay more attention when choosing dental materials.
Zirconia Zyttria® is completely metal-free.
Zirconia Zyttria® = 100% Bio-compatible
CONCEPT's challenge. To manufacture materials capable of fulfilling the requirements of the most advanced orthodontics in terms of aesthetics and functionality, with exclusively made in Italy products, safe and reliable for patients.
No harmful chemical reaction in situations capable of altering the mouth's Ph (consumption of alcohol or tobacco, medication).
Contrary to the metal alloys, there is no corrosion, not even when consuming bittersweet food.
No alteration caused by the Fluoride regularly used in toothpaste for oral hygiene.
High compatibility with the mucosa: the gum adapts very well around the Zirconium prosthetic structure, it does not irritate or colour.
The smooth surface prevents the attack of bacteria, limiting the inflammatory processesof the tissue around the implants.
