Zirconia Dental Implants
Zirconia dental implants are made from zirconium dioxide, a type of ceramic material that is biocompatible to the human body. Zirconia dental implants have been used as an alternative to traditional titanium implants since the early 2000s, and they are becoming increasingly popular due to their many advantages.
Advantages of Zirconia Implants
Zirconia dental implants offer several advantages compared to traditional titanium implants. Some of the advantages of zirconia dental implants include the following:
- Hypoallergenic and Biocompatible: Zirconia implants are hypoallergenic, meaning they are less likely to cause an allergic reaction. They are also biocompatible, meaning they are less likely to cause inflammation or infection in the surrounding tissues.
- Aesthetic Appeal: Zirconia implants have a white color that can blend in with natural teeth, making them a great option for patients concerned about their smile’s appearance.
- Strength and Durability: Zirconia implants are made from a ceramic material that is incredibly strong and durable. They resist corrosion and are less likely to fracture or break over time.
- No Conductivity: Zirconia implants do not conduct heat or electricity, which can benefit patients who have sensitive teeth or are concerned about the potential for electrochemical corrosion.
- Less Invasive: Zirconia implants can be placed using a minimally invasive surgical technique, reducing the discomfort and downtime associated with the procedure.
Zirconia dental implants offer several advantages, making them an attractive option for many patients.
