Ceramic Zirconia Dental Implants
A CeraRoot® Ceramic Zirconia dental implant is like a one-time, long-term investment that usually pays rich dividends and the dental patient does not experience the situation of implant replacement, defect, or failure.
Choosing a dental implant, therefore, should be an informed decision, the implant material should be durable, aesthetic and safe as it is going to stay in your mouth for a long time. Moreover, an experienced implant specialist can help you ensure perfect placement and also advise you about implant suitability.
A dental implant is not an off-the-shelf product that you can easily return to a store and get an immediate replacement, and be on your way. A dental implant procedure, be it the placement of CeraRoot® Ceramic Zirconia or any other implant, is a significant step that affects your oral and general health. A failed implant can lead to pain, oral complications, increased financial burden, and unnecessary hassle.
What Is a ‘Zirconia’ Dental Implant?
Zirconia is a crystalline form of zirconium and is well-known for its similarity to diamonds. The crystal material is altered slightly to ceramics and gives a tooth-like color for use in implant dentistry. Zirconia is metal-free and interacts favorably with the human body, is non-toxic, and biocompatible. Therefore, it is considered safe and is approved by the federal Food And Drug Administration (FDA) for use in dental implants.
Titanium vs. Zirconia Implants
The first dental implants that were used in the 1980s had two parts: the fixture, which was fitted into the jaw bone, and the abutment, which was the prosthetic crown fixed to the fixture. By 2000, a new improvement in ceramic materials allowed implantologists to use ceramic abutments, which was considered less damaging to the tissues than titanium.
The full CeraRoot® ceramic dental implant was introduced in 2005. However, when the one-piece zirconia dental implant received approval from the FDA in 2011, it created a revolution in dental implants.
CeraRoot® ceramic zirconia dental implants gained popularity because they had no prosthetic connections. In titanium implants, the site where the prosthetic connected with the fixture was a hotbed for harmful bacterial growth leading to implant failure. Moreover, CeraRoot® had a tooth-like color and was not prone to change to grayish color like titanium implants.
Zirconia’s excellent biocompatibility, great biomechanical properties, and low affinity to plaque, and natural appearance make it an ideal choice in both cosmetic and clinical dentistry.
