It’s understandable to be concerned about the materials you are putting into your body. When it comes to dental implants that will be permanently inserted into the jaw bone, many patients want the least reactive and least toxic material possible. In such cases, zirconia dental implants can be chosen over traditional titanium implants.

As with any alternative dental material, there are benefits and risks to having zirconia implants. Zirconia dental implants were introduced in 1987, compared to the time-tested emergence of titanium implants in 1960. However, zirconia has gained increasing attention for health-conscious patients and those who value biomimetic or holistic dentistry. Zirconia dental implants are considered a non-metal alternative to titanium implants. While newer to the market, Zirconia is a white ceramic material that is reported to be superior in soft-tissue response, biocompatibility and aesthetics compared to titanium implants.

Benefits of Zirconia Dental Implants

The following are some of the leading advantages of choosing zirconia implants over titanium:

  • Aesthetics – a tooth-colored implant that doesn’t show through the gums like darker titanium implants can in certain situations.
  • Allergy-Free – while titanium metal allergy is rare, the risk can be completely eliminated by choosing non-metal zirconia.
  • Less Plaque Buildup – studies suggest lower amounts of plaque formation and infections around zirconia implants.
  • Corrosion Resistance – zirconia is a poor electrical and thermal conductor, so there is no concern of corrosion.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
