Based in San Diego, Dr. Azadeh “Amy” Khajavi maintains a holistic dental office and offers implants created from non-metal materials. With titanium linked to cancer, Dr. Azadeh Khajavi promotes strong and durable zirconia as a biocompatible implant alternative that promotes osseointegration, or bonding with the bone.

In addition to its standing up well to heavy-duty use, zirconia is hypoallergenic, which contrasts with metal implants. Titanium implant sensitivity can manifest long after surgery, with inflammation and itchiness arising around the site of the implant. This can lead to implant failure and bone loss.

At the same time, zirconia’s flexural strength enables it to accommodate the demands of everyday mastication, or chewing. The implants are tooled precisely using computer-aided design, which enables a precise fit.

Another aspect of zirconia that makes it preferable is its tooth-like color, with no graying or color variation issues. Unlike titanium, there are no metal margins showing, and without the metal substructure, it has an overall more natural appearance. Using next-generation coloring technologies, the colors can be adjusted minutely to reflect the overall look of the natural teeth.

Zirconia is also a recommended material for any type of full crown restoration, including inlays and crown-bridge combinations.

A dentist and oral implantologist in Mexico, Azadeh “Amy” Khajavi offers metal-free dental implants and full mouth reconstruction. Dr. Azadeh Khajavi shares her knowledge of and experience with metal-free implants through the Zirconia Implants Institute, where she serves as an instructor.

Titanium may be well-known as a source material for dental implants, but zirconia offers a number of advantages. First, because zirconia belongs to the ceramic family, it is an inert material and thus fully biocompatible. Where some patients may experience an allergic reaction to titanium, this is not a risk with zirconia.

Zirconia also removes many of the issues associated with the use of metal in the mouth. Where titanium can react with metals and metal alloys used in prior dental work, causing an electric reaction in the mouth, zirconia has no effect on the body’s electric field. Zirconia is also immune to corrosion, has no metallic taste, and offers a better color match to the patient’s natural teeth.

Fortunately, patients do not have to sacrifice strength when they choose zirconia. The material itself is stronger than titanium, and the biocompatible nature of zirconia invites soft tissue to grow around the implant itself. This reduces a patient’s risk of bleeding gums and helps to secure the implant within the gum tissue.

A holistic and neuromuscular dentist, Dr. Azadeh “Amy” Khajavi offers full mouth reconstruction using dental implants through her practice Excellence Dental in Rosarito, Baja California. Azadeh Khajavi’s practice is the only office in Mexico that offers patients metal-free, zirconia dental implants.

Many dental implants are anchored to the jawbone using titanium materials. However, those materials present not only aesthetic challenges but also immunologic problems in some patients. As an alternative to titanium implants, oral health practitioners have developed new implant materials that provide strength similar to titanium but without the downsides.

Zirconia, one such material, has advantages over titanium in that its color is suitably tooth-like, it has low plaque affinity, and it is biocompatible. An innovative white ceramic, zirconia is Food and Drug Administration accepted for use in dental clinics.

Unlike titanium, zirconia does not degrade over time as a result of corrosion. Moreover, zirconia implants are designed in one piece, meaning they do not include sub-gingival connections that can harbor harmful bacteria.

In addition to dental implants, dentists use zirconia to form crowns and bridges.

The History of Zumba

Dr. Azadeh Amy Khajavi is a dentist focusing on dental implants in San Diego, Oregon. A fitness enthusiast, Dr. Azadeh Khajavi enjoys dancing the calories away in Zumba classes.

Zumba originated in Colombia more than a decade ago. The fitness dance class combines Latin dances such as merengue, cumbia, salsa, and samba, all of which can be traced back to the 17th and 18th centuries.

Zumba was created out of necessity. Alberto Perez, a fitness trainer in Cali, Colombia, arrived at his regular aerobics class one day having forgotten his usual music. Thinking on his feet, he substituted some Latin music, which included various classics he found enjoyable. The improvised class was a success, and with time it grew to be one of the most popular classes at the fitness facility.

In 1999, Perez brought the fitness class to Miami, Florida. In 2001, he teamed up with entrepreneurs Alberto Aghion and Alberto Perlman to create a company based on the unique combination of the music and his fitness philosophy. They trademarked the name Zumba and created a brand they sought to spread throughout the whole world.

In 2002, the three signed a deal with an infomercial company that led to the sale of thousands of videos across the United States. The demand for classes was overwhelming, establishing the need to train even more Zumba instructors. This led to the creation of an instructor training program, leading to a huge increase in the number of trained instructors in the United States. After this success in the US infomercial campaigns in Europe and South America led to the selling of millions of videos. Zumba is now practiced on six continents and is a fitness program recognized by numerous fitness organizations.
