Dental implants are traditionally made of titanium, a light, durable biocompatible material. However, an increasing number of health-savvy individuals in the Beverly Hills, CA area are taking advantage of ceramic dental implants. Metal-free implants are available at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills.
I am Dr. Sanda at Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness. Let’s talk about ceramic or zirconia dental implants. Since 1965, titanium dental implants have been on the market to replace missing teeth. But, today we have had some recent studies to show that titanium may exacerbate auto-immune disease through the fact that it can release some ions in our body. So, ceramic dental implants have been on the market since the 1980s and really, in the United States, since 2007. Ceramic dental implants are all-white and so if you have a smile like mine where you are showing a lot of gums, you definitely want to go with a ceramic implant as you are going to get that greyish look in the front. Also, it is more biocompatible, and it has similar osseointegration effects as titanium. So, no longer you have to worry about ceramic implants breaking, because they are just as solid as titanium. If you have any more questions, or to see if you are a candidate for a ceramic dental implant, give us a call at Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness.
Placement of a zirconia implant differs from the titanium technique. In inexperienced hands, the cost for implants could be your smile and your health.
