Ceramic Zirconia Dental ImplantsCeramic dental implants are an effective dental solution when replacing missing teeth with new, natural-looking, and long-lasting set of permanent teeth. Implants provide a fixed prosthetic solution and they help restore smiles permanently. Ceramic dental implants are like traditional implants as they perform the same function. They give support to prosthetic teeth and anchor the tooth to your gums. However, ceramic dental implants have an advantage owing to exceptional biocompatibility and tissue integration, supporting biomechanical properties, and low affinity to plaque.
Traditional Implants Have Their FlawsTraditional implants have two metal components: the implant, which is placed onto your jaw to provide support to the second component—the abutment. The abutment is positioned above the gum line and can be seen by others. The two metal components are affixed with a fixation screw. The traditional implants are, of course, successful and effective dental solutions. However, they have limitations, including the possibility of infection in patients sensitive to metals or metal-related allergies and loosening of the ‘joint’ due to many reasons.
Bio-Compatible ZirconiaThe use of ceramic-based dental parts and material has become popular in the dental industry. Since ceramic dental parts are durable and aesthetic, ceramic implants and crowns are frequently used in dentistry. Due to the success of ceramic implants, bio-compatible zirconia—a white and sturdy ceramic material—has gained widespread acceptance among dentists. Natural-appearing and revolutionary, zirconia ceramic has definite advantages. It does not react with specific metals and triggers physical reactions—making it useful to patients sensitive to some metals. At Pierce Aesthetics, Tustin, CA, dentist, oral surgeon, and a leading implant specialist Dr. Sean Pierce has revitalized the smiles countless dental patients by placing the durable ceramic dental implants.
Why Do Patients And Dentists Prefer Ceramic Zirconia Dental Implants?Ceramic dental implants have a strong resemblance to natural teeth. The ‘look’ factor makes them an ideal aesthetic option for your front teeth. If maintained well, ceramic dental implants are a lifetime solution for missing teeth. The implants enhance oral health as they bond better with your jaw bone. Ceramic zirconia dental implants are bio-compatible. Compared to traditional metal implants as a tooth replacement solution, ceramic implants have no metal component, thereby protecting patients from metal allergies. Ceramic dental implants are better for gum and general health as the ceramic material resists plaque formation, corrosion, and the resulting possible inflammation.
