Altair's Nano-Sized Zirconium Oxide for Dental Applications

Altair Nanotechnologies Inc. announced that commercial nano-sized zirconium oxide is available for dental applications including fillings and prosthetic devices. Altair's president, Dr. Rudi E. Moerck, said, "Nano-sized zirconium oxide is ideal for dental applications because of its strength and transparency to light, but it is opaque to x-rays, making it an excellent material for UV-cured dental fillings."
