When Should I Choose a Zirconium Dental Implant?
- Jul 17, 2018 -
Zirconium dental implants are metal-free. Zirconia is an incredibly strong all-ceramic material that is already widely used for creating crowns and bridges and it is another material that has a high level of biocompatibility.
Zirconium dental implants are viewed by some as offering a more holistic approach to dental health, particularly for anyone who does not wish to have any metal in their body.
Some periodontists favor the use of zirconia dental implants as the design helps to discourage the buildup of plaque and tartar around the implant, and could help lower the risk of gum disease.
Additionally zirconia dental implants can offer a more cosmetically pleasing result due to the natural white tooth color of this material.
