What are Zirconia Dental Implants?

If you have missing or damaged teeth, dental implants are one of the most effective ways to replace them. They are artificial tooth roots that are inserted into your jawbone to provide a stable, secure base for your prosthetic teeth.

With several types of dental implants available, Zirconia implants have become one of the most popular tooth replacement solutions. Also known as ceramic implants, they are made using Zirconia – a metal-free, biocompatible material.

The biocompatible nature of Zirconia makes it the ideal tooth replacement solution for patients with allergic reactions or sensitivities to metal, as they don’t cause any adverse reactions in your body. They are also highly durable, making them resistant to daily wear and tear your teeth withstand.

Leaving missing or damaged teeth can affect your confidence, smile and function of your teeth. Not only that, it can also lead to painful dental conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease. What better way to replace your missing teeth than with this safe, long-lasting, reliable, and holistic approach that is Zirconia Implants?

Zirconia Implants vs. Titanium Implants

If you are looking for tooth replacement solutions, it’s only natural to wonder which is better – Zirconia or Titanium. Both Zirconia and titanium, with their unique properties and offerings, are the two commonly used dental implant materials.

Titanium implants have been the go-to solution for tooth replacement for many decades now. They offer a strong and durable solution that’s also biocompatible. Sometimes, however, it can cause allergic reactions in patients with metal sensitivities. In addition, titanium can also integrate seamlessly with the jawbone, providing a secure base for the replacement tooth.

On the other hand, Zirconia implants have grown in popularity over recent years as a metal-free alternative to titanium implants. Made of highly biocompatible Zirconia material, these implants also fuse seamlessly with the bone. One property of Zirconia implants that stands out is their natural-looking appearance. They closely resemble the shade of your natural teeth, unlike titanium implants, where a greyish tint can sometimes be seen.

How to Choose the Best Dental Implant Material for You

The choice of materials for your dental implants will depend on several factors, including:

  • Individual needs and preferences: If you prefer a more aesthetically pleasing tooth replacement solution, Zirconia implants that mimic the translucent nature of your natural teeth are a better choice.
  • Your health: If you have a history of allergies or sensitivities to metals, opting for Zirconia implants is a safer choice as they are highly biocompatible.
  • Professional recommendation: Your dentist will recommend the dental implant material most suitable for you after assessing your oral health, preferences and other factors.

How Much Does Zirconia Implants Cost?

The cost of dental implants depends on several factors. The number of implants needed, the complexity of the procedure, and pre-treatment procedures such as bone grafting are some factors that influence the Zirconia implant cost.

When you come in for a consultation, our friendly dentists will be able to provide a more accurate estimate of Zirconia implant costs after assessing your specific needs. Because we believe in accessible dental care, we also offer dental payment plans so you can get the dental care you need when you need it the most!
