The zirconium is among the materials that have been recently and commonly used and addresses the ordinary current use modes in the dentistry. The zirconium that requires clarification of concepts is used to make bridges and dentures.
The zirconium is used to achieve an optimum patient satisfaction and positive results, and is a type of elements. The zirconium’s atomic number is 40 and weighs 91.22. The zirconium is one of the leading materials and has grey and white color tones. The zirconium is an element that is not found free in the nature and has silicate and oxide minerals. The other name of the zirconium is zircon and sometimes confused with the brand “Zirconia”. The zirconium is found in Zrsi04 mine and mined in Brazil, India and the USA. The zircon contains the element Hf in the ratio 50:1. The zirconium has the form of hexagonal crystal and is also very resistant to high temperatures. The zirconium is found in different compounds and was discovered by Martin Heinrich Klaproth. The zirconium was isolated by Jons Jakob Berzelius and revealed by isolating through calcium and magnesium. Defined as a type of reactive substances, the zirconium is a reactive substance.
The zirconium is joined through oxygen and nitrogen during metal casting and processed using titanium technology. The zirconium is processed in special kilns and used for nuclear industry, flash and metallic bombs. The zirconium materials which is obtained from zirconium and prepared through zirconia ceramic form are used as a material for nuclear reactors. The zirconium has a low absorbency and higher tension strength. The zirconium is described as a tissue-friendly material and also combustible. The zirconium has a leading position among materials that are commonly used for the glass and ceramic industries and is preferred for superconductivity at lower temperatures. The zirconium is very resistant to corrosion and covered in the air and liquid through oxidation.
