What Are The Benefits of Metal-Free Zirconia Dental Implants?
Posted on March 14, 2017 in Dental Implants
Metal-free zirconia dental implants are made entirely from high-quality, white ceramic material. From post to crown, this one-piece dental implant is incredibly durable and offers unparalleled esthetics. Additionally, zirconia ceramic material is completely hypoallergenic, biocompatible, and non-corrosive, which can minimize the possibility of soft-tissue irritation, speed healing, and lead to higher long-term success rates.
Benefits of metal-free zirconia dental implants can include:
- High-quality esthetics – Zirconia is one of the most realistic and luminous ceramic materials used for dental restoration. Furthermore, the white zirconia post eliminates the possibility of darkening within the crown or around the gumline.
- Decreased risk of infection – The one-piece design of this implant eliminates the traditional junction between the crown and implant that can harbor dangerous bacteria.
- Improved healing – Zirconia implants only require a one-stage procedure and do not need to be placed as deeply within the jawbone. Also, their metal-free, biocompatible composition is often easily tolerated by even the most sensitive patients.
- Strength and durability – Zirconia is an incredibly strong material and the one-piece design of the implant provides additional protection against breakage and other kinds of structural weakness.
For patients who have adopted a natural, holistic lifestyle, metal-free zirconia dental implants offer an acceptable implant option that adheres to holistic health principles.
