What Are Metal-Free Dental Implants?
Zirconia implants are metal-free, corrosion-resistant, and safe for patients with metal sensitivities. They are a great alternative to titanium implants for replacing missing teeth as they provide more durability.
Zirconia or ceramic implants are a one-piece design surgically placed at the margin of the gum. They are a white powdered ceramic material, often used to produce dental frameworks including bridges and crowns. Unlike typical ceramics that can be more brittle, zirconia is highly resistant to long-term wear and are more flexible in material. As one of the hardest materials used in dentistry, zirconia implants closely resemble natural teeth.
