The superior alternative to traditional, metal dental implants, are the newer, FDA approved, durable, beautiful, biocompatible, biomimetic ceramic, metal free zirconia dental implants otherwise known as ceramic dental implants.
Zirconia dental implants were introduced into dental implantology as an alternative to titanium implants. While metal dental implants made of titanium and titanium alloys have been widely used among traditional dentists, they posed a number of disadvantages such as potential immunologic (allergic) and esthetic (cosmetic) compromises.
Zirconia is an optimal dental implant material because of its tooth-like color, mechanical properties, biocompatibility within the body, and low plaque affinity. Periodontal health is far more superior when compared to Titanium implants; yielding better esthetics and material of choice in high esthetic zone.
