Re: Dental compatibility test: reactive to Zinc. Will 0.5% of it pose threat?

powertool4 and dukeeeey, thanks for your input.

Actually, the test shows reactivity to all materials. There are 3 categories: Highly reactive, Moderate reactive, and Least reactive. There isnít such thing as no reaction on this test. It also says that Iím Highly reactive to Zirconium. I was going to use Zirconia inlays as wellÖ Iím not a chemist, but can someone explain to me difference between Zirconia and Zirconium? Zirconia is what used in dentistry now, not Zirconium, so why Zirconium was used in the test? I thought Zirconia is considered as NON-metal because it is in oxide powder form (king of salt), not metal. So why was it in metals section, and why was it Zirconium?

So if I was to avoid any metal then according to this test I canít put Zirconia either (again, whatís the difference between Zirconium in test and Zirconia?). And because Iím highly reactive to Aluminum, Iím wondering if they just tested for aluminum and determined reactivity to Zirconium following from reactivity to Aluminum?

Iíve heard a lot about toxicity of Palladium, but it says Iím Least Reactive to Palladium...

Going back to the zinc issue: It says Iím Highly reactive to Zinc and Zinc Acetate, but Least reactive to Zinc oxide. Which form of zinc do we consume with food and as mineral supplements?

Is there are way to determine the amounts of zinc that can be released from a gold inlay where zinc is of 0.5%?

If someone has answers to any of these questions, Iíd appreciate that.
