Wondering if I really have to have titanium instead of Zirconia? (Photo)

There is no question that titanium implants have the best long term data to support their use.The data on zirconia implants is much more limited.
I am actually more concerned does the material match the patients immune system. The Clifford test can tell whether your immune system is sensitive to a specific brand of implants.
I hope it helps.
