Z-Systems Ceramic Implants
Exclusively in Snohomish from Dr. Jason Chang
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. Jason Chang
Dr. Jason Chang has been practicing dentistry for over 18 years. He has received a Mastership Award from the Academy of General Dentistry which takes over 1000 hours of continuing education to achieve.
All that learning has convinced Dr. Chang that the less dentistry we do, the better off the patient will be. In other words, there is nothing like having your own natural teeth.
Over the last several years Dr. Chang has been trying to transition from the traditional surgery based dental treatments to more medical based treatments, using a Functional Medicine mindset. This approach has lead Dr. Chang into the use of bacteria testing, dental ozone, and nutrition as the mainstays of maintaining oral health and wellness.
