Dr Hart: One of the services which sets us apart from other practices is the service of ceramic implant. So patients are coming with the infected tooth and they want to get rid of the infection of course. We take the tooth out with the biological protocol. The same day we can place that ceramic implant. And that ceramic implant is very biocompatible. The tissue loves it. It heals very well and it looks great. And it’s a great, great benefit for the patient health.

Rudy Vaughan: I discovered I had a few cavities that need to be filled and more importantly even, I had some bridge work that had deteriorated from the past 30 years. So when I found out about a biological dentist and some of the health benefits from that, I decided I definitely wanted to go and have a consultation. It was great going to a dentist that has an overall focus on the health of the body, which included ceramic implants versus metal. And so I’m really glad I went that direction. Much better for my body’s health.

Ron Cummings: In the past I’ve had some difficulties with some of my dental care and I was looking for a professional who was going to be able to give me what I felt would be best for me. Specifically was looking for ceramic implants. I don’t like to put metals in my body if at all possible. Dr. Hart came up number one in this area. The results that I obtained at the end have been magnificent. The work was completed on time to a very high standard.

Rudy Vaughan: If you’re looking for a healthy and positive experience at the dentist office, then I would highly recommend Virginia Biological Dentistry.

Dr. Olivia Hart is one of the few dentists in Glen Allen and Glen Allen, Virginia that offers her patients FDA-approved, biocompatible, biomimetic, durable metal-free zirconia implants, also known as ceramic implants.


If you think about it, you have likely never known anyone who has an allergic reaction to a ceramic teapot or the ceramic plates they eat off. One of the reasons for this is that the human body responds better to biocompatible, non-metal materials rather than materials made from metals.

When titanium alloy dental implants are placed in the” hostile electrolytic environment” that is our mouth, they may be subject to corrosion and the release of ions that can, in turn, increase the likelihood of an adverse allergic reaction (Chaturvedi, 2013).

Additionally, the metal in our mouth is continuously being exposed to saliva and cellular energy—who does not use mobile phones these days with ever more powerful cellular networks? This exposure is known to create galvanic reactions, which are battery-like electric currents (Tschernitschek H, Borchers L, Geurtsen W. Nonalloyed 2005: 523-530). Having a battery in your mouth is not a recipe for a long, healthy life! Furthermore, some patients have developed a hypersensitivity to titanium implants (Muller K, Valentine-Thon E., 2006).

According to the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and documented scientific research, exposure to metal in general and metal implants can also contribute to autoimmune disease. (Loyo E, Jara LJ, López PD, Puig AC., 2013).

Virginia Biological Dentistry adopts a precautionary approach in its biological, ceramic implant treatment. Our philosophy is that anything metal in a patient’s mouth is suspicious until science states otherwise and should ideally be substituted with available biocompatible alternatives to enhance a patient’s body’s immunity and self-defense.


  • Strong – Zirconia is strong and durable, making these implants suitable for any area of the mouth.
  • Reliable – Zirconia implants have been available since 1987, recently gaining popularity due to many biological dental practices. Zirconia integrates like titanium, with a success rate of up to 97%.
  • Biocompatible – Zirconia is bioinert, unlikely to cause inflammation or be rejected by the body.
  • Natural-looking – Zirconia implants are white and have the appearance of natural teeth. They are virtually undetectable to the human eye.

As a dentist with a biological approach and a member of the IAOMT, Dr. Hart supports the growing trend toward avoiding metals in the body. If you are a health-conscious dental patient, she encourages you to schedule a consultation to learn more about the advantages of zirconia implants and relevant treatment plans.
