Advantages Of Zirconia Implants
As an alternative to titanium implants then, zirconia offers several potential advantages, though these are not yet proven due to the as of yet inexpensive use of the modern treatment. Zirconia offers:
Metal Free Dentistry:
There may be long term benefits for the patient’s health if dentistry can be metal free. Zirconia has been shown to be biocompatible, and fuses with the bone well.
No Allergic Reactions:
There haven’t yet been any allergic reactions to zirconia.
Does not form oxides, and tests seem to suggest that the zirconia implants are tolerated well by the body.
Doesn’t create a voltage like titanium can.
Looks & Feels Great:
Zirconia is a white color that very much resembles natural teeth, and the ceramic feel is much more similar to natural teeth than metal.
