Metal Free Dental Implants
Metal Free Dental Implants in Seattle
Metal free dental implants are a holistic alternative to traditional metal implants. They are made of a biocompatible material that is compatible with the human body. Our Seattle dental implant dentist, Dr. Vo, goes over both titanium and metal free options with his patients and together you'll decide which is best for your current needs.
What Are Zirconia Dental Implants?
Zirconia dental implants are metal free and made of a ceramic material. They are a strong and durable option for dental implants. Titanium metal implants have been the standard for many years, but metal free options are becoming more popular. Zirconia provides a beautiful, natural look. For patients where gum recession is a concern, ceramic dental implants are a great choice because the metal can get exposed and make the tissue appear dark.
Zirconia implants are formed of a single piece, unlike traditional ones, which require a separate abutment (the piece that connects to the top of the implant and supports your fixed restoration). The abutment is incorporated into the implant as a seamless extension. This design eliminates extra moving parts and additional treatments, making zirconia implants ideal for same-day tooth replacement in visible regions of your smile.
Advantages of Ceramic Implants
Implants that need to be placed in the front of the mouth are a great place for ceramic dental implants. This way is gum recession does occur, no metal will come through making the gums appear discolored. Additional benefits are:
- Non-reactive with the human body, making them ideal for people with metal allergies
- Aesthetically more pleasing because they provide a more natural tooth color
- Highly durable and strong, able to support a full set of teeth
- For those looking for a more holistic treatment
