Within the field of dental implantology, there is a new class of products (in development for about the last fifteen years).The gold standard in both single and multiple tooth replacement today is the titanium root-form implant. But, the ceramic implant is an excellent treatment option for patients wishing to remain completely metal-free. There are many benefits to these implants.
Ceramic implants are made from exceptionally high-strength, bio-compatible zirconium oxide. Patients typically experience exceptional healing because they are a tissue friendly material. The end result is an esthetic solution to tooth replacement with none of the potential disadvantages of titanium. Because metal is not present, there are no known allergies or sensitivities to the ceramic implants.
