A More Natural Option

Zirconia is a ceramic material that makes an excellent option for dental implants due to its more natural appearance (white in color as opposed to gray); biocompatibility (most cells, bone, and tissue adapt very quickly to it), and bioinert nature (it won’t trigger a chemical reaction, migrate to other sites in the body, or corrode).

Why Choose Zirconia Ceramic Implants?

Many individuals are interested in zirconia ceramic implants because they would prefer to not have metal in their jawbone. Others are actually allergic to titanium. (This percentage is small, but it does exist.) Titanium has a grey color that can often be visible if a patient has thin or receding gums, and so many patients want the white color that zirconia implants offer. People are becoming more mindful of what they put into their body; therefore zirconium implants sound attractive to many.
