Ultrasonic scaling of titanium (Ti) implants releases particles that not only vary by surface type but aggravate peri-implantitis, according to a new study. Researchers from Israel investigated whether ultrasonic scaling of dental implants done to manage peri-implantitis releases titanium particles that may induce inflammation and osteolysis. They also explored whether the response of the implants […]
“Although vitamin D may be involved in regulating many of the body’s systems, it is the skeleton that is most clearly affected by vitamin D deficiency,” says Dr. David Hanley, MD, an endocrinologist in the Cumming School of Medicine (CSM)
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Adams School of Dentistry has started a clinical trial to investigate how well mouthwash reduces viral load in patients with COVID-19. The trial aims to determine whether gargling with a mouthwash reduces or eliminates SARS-CoV-2 in patients’ mouths and lowers the chances of them spreading it to […]
ZIRCONIA CROWNS INTRODUCTION Clinicians who wish to provide patients with excellent dental restorations often choose zirconia crowns. These crowns are chosen over conventional PFMs (Porcelain Fused to Metal) or full-gold crowns due to: ● Superior strength ● Durability ● Excellent aesthetics SOLID ZIRCONIA ● Has a natural translucency and opalescence ● Generally recommended for posterior […]
Traditional analog diagnostic methods used to treat complex aesthetic challenges can be effective but often are inefficient, inaccurate, and do not precisely reflect definitive surgical or restorative solutions.
COVID-19 patients are at least three times more likely to experience complications if they also have gum disease, according to an international team of researchers.
Clinically, a tooth with a fixed restoration may need to undergo endodontic treatment or require replacement of the crown.
Zirconia’s superior properties include its high compressive strength, higher tensile strength, and modulus of elasticity compared to any titanium alloy or commercial-grade pure titanium.
Since 1994, Dr. Azadeh “Amy” Khajavi has served as a dentist at her own private practice in San Diego, California. Among her services, Dr. Azadeh Khajavi specializes in full mouth reconstruction using metal-free dental implants, with a focus on zirconia dental implants.
