Zirconia – The Nonmetal Implants

Invisalign Provider

You’ve probably heard of the invisible ‘braces’ that everyone is talking about. These devices are very effective at moving teeth but without the discomfort of the metal and wires that come with braces. It is a considerably less invasive orthodontic treatment. You are not required to wear them while eating, and you can continue brush and floss your teeth as you normally would. Even better, your teeth are much less at risk for cavities while they are being moved. Invisalign aligners are also much less painful than other types of braces.

After numerous researches zirconium dioxide (zirconia) earned its place as a potential alternative.
