Healthy teeth are a crucial part of our quality of life. They not only contribute to an attractive appearance, they also help us perform daily eating habits.
When a tooth is lost for orthodontic reasons or due to decay, patients are able to receive permanent implants to replace the tooth. When it comes to implants, it is important that patients use the right material, allowing the implant to interact seamlessly with their body’s chemical makeup.
For this reason, Dr. Matian is proud to use CeraRoot implants. Made entirely of ceramic, these implants are perfect for every patient.
The CeraRoot Difference
CeraRoot implants are made of a special ceramic called Zirconia, which is actually used in spaceships due to its high resistance to heat and breakage. Prior to Zirconia, dental implants were made of titanium. CeraRoot ceramic implants have all the advantages of titanium with none of the disadvantages.
Dr. Matian uses CeraRoot implants for the following reasons:
- They are holistic, working with body’s chemical composition to ensure total well-being.
- They are hygienic, proven to retain less plaque than titanium, which promotes healthy gums.
- They are biocompatible, with a very low rate of allergic reactions.
- They are as strong as titanium.
- They are osseointegrative, meaning your natural bone easily fuses with the implant.
When using artificial materials as permanent fixtures in the body, it is important to use ceramic that is made with relentless quality to boost appearance, strength and safety. Zirconia is known as an oxide ceramic, which has proven effective in all uses. Zirconia was originally proposed for use in dentistry in the 1980s following its success in hip implants. Since that time, it has been further developed to ensure complete safety and reliable function.
Zirconia has the advantage of being easily integrated into the jaw structure without the risk of inflammation. These implants are hypoallergenic, and safer for patients with metal sensitivities, allergies, or want to avoid any metal in dental treatments. Zirconia implants are corrosion resistant, holistic, strong, and closely mimic nature. The one-piece design makes it possible for the zirconia implant to be placed immediately after a tooth is extracted. These implants can be placed without incisions or stitches in many cases, for faster treatment and recovery. At BioDental, we are committed to practicing dentistry that supports whole body health.
Cosmetic Benefits of Zirconia Implants
Zirconia implants are pure white in color, identical to your natural teeth. While a traditional implant may have looked perfect when first placed, as the person ages and gums recede, the grey color of the implant can become visible. Issues such as inflammation and bleeding are extremely rare with zirconia implants, as the ceramic substance does not react with the gum or bone. These implants allow you to have a healthier mouth – and a more beautiful smile for the long term.
Common Questions About Zirconia Implants
Are Zirconia Implants Superior to Other Implant Types?3h>
These implants are metal-free, do not conduct electrical impulses, have no metallic taste, and do not pose a risk of metal leaching into the body.
Is The Implant Process Painful?
When placing zirconia implants, the area is numbed so you do not experience pain or discomfort. After the procedure, pain medication will easily manage any minor pain.
Health Risks: Titanium vs Ceramic
While many dentists will insist that titanium implants pose no risk to health – as they have continually said is the case with metal fillings, we know that placing metal in the body poses health dangers, and there is much scientific research to support the fact.
Metals corrode, releasing tiny particles of various metals in these alloys into your system. The long-term effects of titanium implants may not yet be fully known – but at BioDental, we do not believe it is safe to have metal within the oral cavity, whether in fillings or implants. Research has also revealed that titanium in the presence of fluoride can more easily corrode and release micro-particles that travel through the body’s system.
