A Better Understanding Of Ceramic Dental Implants

Dentures have been the only way to replace missing teeth for a long time. But now, dental implants are fast becoming one of the best ways to replace a missing tooth. This is because of the many advantages attached to these implants.

Most dental implants are made of titanium, which is metal. However, ceramic dental implants are non-metal and have become more popular in recent years.

This article is for you if you want more information about ceramic dental implants. It contains key information about ceramic dental implants and how they differ from titanium implants.

What are Ceramic Dental Implants

Contrary to titanium implants, ceramic implants are a newer technology that has been used for about 20 years. They are meant to be an alternative for people who are allergic to or sensitive to titanium, have an autoimmune disease, or have galvanic reactions to metals.

 

Ceramic dental implants are made of zirconia, a white, tooth-coloured ceramic material. Ceramic implants are more pleasing to the eye than titanium implants and are less likely to cause metal allergies. The Zirconia material is strong and used in various medical applications, including orthopedic surgery for hip ceramic implants.

Why Choose Ceramic Dental Implants?

Ceramic implants don’t react to bacteria in the mouth or other dental materials. They also stick to plaque less, making it much less likely that the area around the implant will inflame. Because ceramic is biocompatible, it doesn’t hurt the gums around the implant when blood flows through them.

 

Ceramic dental implants are also resistant to corrosion and will not cause gum discolouration like titanium dental implants. These implants also improve blood circulation around the implant site, which promotes faster healing and healthy soft tissue.

How Do Ceramic Implants Work?

Dental implant procedures are usually the same. The implant is placed at the upper or lower jawbone and allowed to heal (integrate) for three months. The patient is then referred to their restorative dentist to have teeth fabricated to be placed on top of the implant.

 

We wait for osseointegration when the surrounding bone fuses to the implant wall and locks it in place so it can function like a permanent tooth.

Ceramic vs Titanium Dental Implants

Ceramic and titanium are biocompatible materials that integrate with the jawbone to provide a strong foundation for your replacement tooth. However, they are different:

 

  • Ceramic dental implants are non-conductive and corrosion resistant
  • Titanium can cause a greyish appearance in patients with thin gums. This is due to its metallic nature.
  • Ceramic has a lower plaque affinity.
  • A Ceramic dental implant has better blood circulation around the gums than a titanium dental implant. This means that the tissues surrounding the implant will receive more nourishment.

Ceramic Dental Implants Cost in Australia

Generally speaking the cost is around $5,500 per implant compared to the regular titanium implants that cost $3,999 per tooth. The cost of ceramic dental implants is determined by the specifics of each individual’s case. That is why we invite you to come in for an evaluation so that we can provide you with an accurate estimate of your costs.
