Zirconia implant or no implant at all?


I hope no-one minds me opening a new thread for this, as I believe this topic will be helpful for some others as well.

I'm removing my titanium implant (with a dentist who uses a specific tool for the removal), and considering putting a zirconia implant instead. Does anyone know how safe a zirconia implant will be or should I just leave the place open after having the titanium implant removed? The teeth is unvisible so esthetics won't be much of an issue.

Zirconia implant:

+ "non-metal" and thus safer than a titanium implant
+ abutment made of just one part
+ keeps the bone intact
+ keeps teeth straight
+ with goold luck no bone grafting needed
- maybe the body will still reject the implant, even though this is less likely than with a metal implant
- there is still a possibility of cavitation

No implant at all:

+ there's nothing for the body to reject
- the bone will get damaged by time (no exercise for the bone)
- the teeth may shift by time
- makes eating more difficult
- a bone graft is likely to be needed

If the zirconia implant can be put immediately to the hole of the removed implant, this might sound like a good way in theory. But I'd be tempted to leave the place open at least for a while to minimize objects that my body may reject.

Any thoughts or experiences about this? Thank you!
