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, 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.
  • 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.
