Zirconia (metal-free) dental implants are here! Zirconia implants have been used in Europe for years, and they are now available in the United States. Advanced Periodontics & Implant Dentistry Manhattan now offers absolute metal-free teeth replacement solutions using metal-free dental implant technology.
What are Metal-free dental implants?
Metal-free (also known as Zirconia implants or all-ceramic implants) are one of the best materials available today for dental reconstructions. Zirconia is a lightweight metal, that is incredibly strong – and resistent to bending, making it an ideal material for dental implants. Its bright-white, tooth-like color makes it all the more suitable for tooth replacement.
Zirconia has many advantages over other dental implants materials. Among the advantages of Zirconia Implants are that it’s:
A naturally-occuring material
Highly aesthetic, due to its white tooth-like color
Proven to be more hygienic than metal options
Biocompatible (does not cause allergies)
Readily accepted and integrated by the surrounding bone, leading to successful implants, and permanent stability of teeth.
In fact, Zirconia bridges have proven to be stable even after 50 years of biting and chewing!
