Metal vs. Zirconia Dental Implants​

Traditional dental implants involve titanium posts being surgically implanted into the jaw at bone level. For back teeth, a temporary healing cap is placed until the final crown can be attached, while for visible front teeth, a temporary tooth is used for aesthetic purposes. The gum takes around three to six months to heal and integrate with the implant, after which the permanent crown is fabricated and attached. Zirconia implants are a holistic alternative to metal implants that offer similar strength and biocompatibility without the risk of corrosion over time.

Zirconia Dental Implant Facts

  • Ceramic implants that are white in color and not visible through the tooth, offer a more aesthetically pleasing option for patients
  • Biocompatible material that will not corrode over time
  • Holistic in nature; corrosion does not occur over time as with other metals, so particles from corrosion are not emitted into the body
  • Possess the same strength as traditional metal implants Holistic alternative to titanium implants, ideal for patients with metal allergies

Pros of Choosing Zirconia Dental Implants

Zirconia dental implants are an excellent choice for individuals who desire metal-free dentistry. Zirconia is an inert material that is a great option for people with metal allergies or sensitivities. Zirconia implants may be more aesthetically pleasing than traditional metal implants because they eliminate the risk of dark lines around the gum line. The introduction of two-piece zirconia implants allows for abutments to be fully customized, creating the best outcomes. Zirconia implants retain less plaque and calculus than titanium, making them a healthier option for the soft tissue. They also have good flexural strength and are known to be superior to other ceramics in resistance to fracture.

Clinical studies have shown that zirconia is as good as, if not better than, titanium in terms of osseointegration, which is the process of the implant fusing firmly with the jaw bone. Zirconia dental crowns are also becoming increasingly popular due to their strength, durability, and biocompatibility. Zirconia crowns are made of zirconium dioxide, a very durable type of ceramic material that is less likely to provoke the body into producing an immunological response like inflammation.

Zirconia dental crowns are a popular choice among dentists because they are strong and long-lasting. They also offer biocompatibility, which means that they are less likely to cause inflammation or produce a reaction in the body. The same-day procedure for zirconia crowns is convenient because the crown can be made and cemented in one visit. However, it is important to note that bonding cement strength to zirconia is not the strongest, and matching the opaque appearance of a zirconia crown can be difficult.

In summary, zirconia dental implants and crowns are great options for individuals who desire metal-free dentistry and want a strong, durable, and biocompatible material. While there may be potential disadvantages to zirconia crowns, such as matching and bonding cement strength, the benefits of this material far outweigh the cons.

How Does the Zirconia Implant Procedure Work?​

At GreenEwe Dental, we utilize cutting-edge 3D imaging technology to ensure precise and accurate placement of your dental implants. Our team of experienced dentists will carefully insert the implant (also known as a post or screw) into your jawbone and cover it with gum tissues. The implant will then be left to fuse with the bone for 3-6 months.

Once the implant has fully integrated with the bone, our dentists will fit an abutment and allow your gums to heal. During this time, you will receive a temporary restoration. Once your implant has fully healed, we will place a matching crown to restore your smile.

Our advanced dental implant process ensures the best possible outcome for your smile restoration needs. Contact GreenEwe Dental today to schedule your appointment.
