Dental implants are considered the best solution to replace missing or failing teeth. They can stop and reverse jawbone loss, and they provide a stable, durable base for replacement teeth in the form of crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants even restore nearly all of the original bite strength, allowing patients to easily chew tough steaks and sticky candy.
Traditional dental implants are made of a metal called titanium. Although it is biocompatible, titanium may not be appropriate for all patients. Hoboken Oral Surgeons, LLC is proud to offer an alternative: metal-free zirconia dental implants. The ceramic dental implants used in our practice are FDA Approved and 100 % Metal Free. The implant itself is complemented by the ONLY Full Ceramic Surgical Kit on the market! These implants are superior to titanium implants in many areas. Here are a few reasons to consider them.
Allergies and Sensitivities
The most common reason to select zirconia dental implants is an allergy or sensitivity to metal. Ceramic zirconia is both biocompatible and hypoallergenic. Zirconium implants are metal-free, biocompatible, conduct neither heat nor electrical energy, and cause no irritation to the immune system.
If you have thin or significantly receded gums, you might notice a slight gray tinge to them with titanium implants. White zirconia implants can create more natural looking gums.
Titanium dental implants are made of two pieces that are screwed together. After implantation, it is possible for these pieces to slightly separate, forming pockets where bacteria can grow. Zirconia implants have a one-piece design, eliminating this concern.
Durability and Resistance
Titanium is strong and durable, but zirconia is even more so. Zirconia is much stronger than titanium and is corrosion resistant even under extreme circumstances. Zirconia implants have less plaque collection than on titanium. This can reduce the risk of peri-implantitis as well as cardiovascular diseases and strokes.Those who want to minimize the already low risk for implant failure may prefer zirconia implants.
The success rates for both types of dental implants are well above 90%. We will explain your options to you and help you decide whether titanium or zirconia is the right choice for you.
