Ceramic dental implants: The non-metal option in Beverly Hills, CA

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.

Why choose non-metallic implants?

  • Biocompatible – Non-metal dental implants are made from zirconia, a strong ceramic fired at extremely high temperatures. A ceramic implant is placed into the jawbone at the site of a missing tooth. Over time, the bone fuses solidly with this bio-friendly material.
  • Non-allergic – An allergic reaction to metal alloys in the mouth can occur years after a dental procedure. Resulting inflammation and itchiness can cause bone loss and implant failure. There is no risk of allergy with zirconia.
  • Non-corrosive – A chemical reaction from mouth acids can corrode metal dental work. Zirconia is a bioinert material that resists corrosion.
  • Does not trigger galvanism – A mixture of metals in the mouth can create an electrical current with saliva acting as the electrolyte. Galvanism is linked to a variety of symptoms ranging from oral discomfort to headaches, vertigo, insomnia, TMJ disorders, and much more. Use of non-metal restorative materials avoids this risk.
  • Non-conductive – Electrically-charged dental restorations encourage bacterial growth. Zirconia is non-conductive, creating a healthier oral environment.

At Beverly Hills Dental Health and Wellness, Dr. Sanda offers ceramic dental implants to ensure that patients enjoy the benefits of metal-free and toxic-free dentistry.

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.


  • Aesthetic – Titanium implants may leave a gray metal aura at the gum line, as soft tissues recede. Ceramic implants are white. Topped with a beautiful porcelain implant crown, the restoration looks completely natural.
  • Holistic – Ceramic implants contribute to overall wellness. They do not impede flow of energy through the body’s meridians.

Placement of a zirconia implant differs from the titanium technique. In inexperienced hands, the cost for implants could be your smile and your health.
