Zirconia Implants: A Great Alternative in Dental Implants
In addition to running one of the greenest dentist’s office in Colorado, Studio Z Dental offers a complete range of cosmetic dentistry services for its clients including implants, crowns, and veneers. Dental implants can relieve a number of serious conditions and are at the leading edge of dental technology.
As implants can be an essential part of cosmetic dentistry, at Studio Z Dental we use the best implants available, including the highest quality Zirconia implants for the metal sensitive patient.
Zirconia implants are made out of an extremely high quality ceramic. When most people think about ceramics, they think about plates, mugs, and delicate figurines. Surgical grade ceramics, like Zirconia implants, are made from very different ceramic materials than what is in your kitchen cabinets. Combined with the right catalyst and run through the correct type of kiln, ceramic components can be harder than steel while remaining much lighter. These aspects make them ideal for dental implants because they last a long time and hold up after years of chewing, smiling, and brushing.
Zirconia systems have been widely used in Europe since 2003, but have only recently been adopted in the US since around 2011. They offer a durable, high quality alternative to metal implants for the patient that has an allergy-like sensitivity to titanium. The sensitivity affects about 2% of the population. Zirconia implants offer a less reactive option that makes no compromises for comfort or quality.
