There is an obvious trend to introduce into the market new dental implants from more biocompatible materials such as zirconia. Zirconia implants, which may also be referred to as ceramic implants, seems to be the new implant material. The white color of zirconia ceramic implants, its biocompatibility and low affinity of plaque, along with its high mechanical properties and osseointegration, make it a material of choice. For clinicians ceramic implants is a valuable opportunity to expand their customer base, as new generation of patients, which demands metal free implants is increasing constantly. Ceramic implants are mostly provided today by holistic dentists and is part of health trend world-wide.
The beautiful white tooth color of zirconia looks natural and does not seen through gum tissue.
strength, zirconia dental implant
Zirconia shows superior biomechanical properties like high fracture toughness and bending strength, giving zirconia implants the ability to withstand masticatory forces.
zirconia biocompatible, dental implant
Zirconia is a biocompatible material, which FDA approved and considered safe. This means that implants manufactured from zirconia interact favorably with the human body and are non-toxic.
Allergies & Sensitivities
Some patients may be allergic to metal. Zirconia implants as a non-metal, ceramic material, have not been documented to cause an allergic reaction in patients.
No Titanium Ions Release
Recent studies are indicating that increased levels of dissolved titanium released from titanium implants into the surrounding tissues are associated with peri implantitis.
