Dental implants serve as artificial roots that are anchored into the jawbone and support a crown, bridge or denture. Advancements in implant design have lead to the option of metal-free implants.
Dr. Carl Pogoncheff is happy to offer the option of metal-free implants to patients. Schedule a consultation today to find out if who are good candidate for ceramic implants.
What are Metal-Free Implants?
Metal-free implants are implants made of Zirconia ceramic material rather than titanium metal. These are great options for people who desire dental solutions without metal. It is also a good option for patients who want the most natural tooth appearance because ceramic implants are white rather than silver.
Benefits of Metal-Free Implants:
- Ceramic implants can be a viable option for those who do not want to have metal in their bodies.
-This type of implant is a potential solution for those allergic to some types of metal.
-Ceramic implants have a lower rate of inflammation than metal implants because ceramic has a very friendly soft tissue reaction with a low inflammatory response.
- Zirconia ceramic is biocompatible and is already material used in various prosthetic parts including hip replacement.
- Zirconia is a ceramic material that is white. This allows the dental implant to be a color that is more similar to a natural tooth. Patients can receive implants that look and feel like teeth.
