Z-Systems Ceramic Implants
Exclusively in Los Algodones from Dr. Juan Bernal
The Only FDA Approved 100 % Metal Free Implants, Superior to Titanium Implants in Many Areas:
Bones and gums integrate better with zirconium oxide ceramics.
Z-SYSTEMS implants are metal-free, biocompatible, conduct neither heat nor electrical energy, and cause no irritation to the immune system.
Less plaque accretion than on titanium. This reduces the risk of perimplantitis as well as cardiovascular diseases and strokes.
Ceramic is much stronger than titanium.
Thanks to the white material, no gray shadows are visible even with thin or receding gums.
Ceramic implants are opaque to X-rays, and easier to recognize in critical situations.
What Is A Dental Implant?
The implant body or post is the portion of the implant that is inserted into the jawbone. The implant body integrates with the jawbone and becomes the anchor for the new tooth.
The implant abutment is the portion of the dental implant inside the crown. Sometimes the abutment is created with the implant body as one piece. Other times, it is separate and attached to the implant with a screw. The abutment shapes the gum tissue and supports the crown.
The dental implant crown is the portion of the dental implant you see, but if done correctly, no one can tell it is not a natural tooth. The crown is bonded or cemented to the implant abutment and is commonly made of a ceramic or zirconia material because of its naturally white color and strength.

Dr. Juan Bernal
I received my degree from UABC Campos Mexicali B.C. in 1990. The field of Orthodontics inspired me to become a dentist. I love my specialty because I change my patient’s lives and I what I enjoy most is when they leave with a smile. My best day on the job so far was when one of my patients returned smiling telling me that I had saved his life. My worst day on the job so far was when a teenager walked into the office and asked if I could pull out all his teeth and put in dentures. If I weren’t a dentist, I would be an engineer.
When I’m not working, I love to spend time with my wife and two children. If my patients could describe me in three words, they would say I am: funny, gentle, and meticulous. I think the best TV medical drama ever is “ER.”
