What are Zirconia Implants?
Zirconia is a metal-free, ceramic material that is bio-compatible, non-corrosive and non-reactive. This means your zirconia implants won’t cause allergic reactions, inflammation or infection and is the perfect holistic solution for your tooth-replacement needs. It is a highly durable material, making it resistant to pressure and the everyday wear and tear that comes with using your teeth.
Zirconia implants aren’t just about functionality, they also bring a significant aesthetic advantage. These implants and crowns seamlessly blend with your natural teeth, unlike metal implants that can stand out thanks to their natural translucency.
Zirconia implants are at the forefront of dental implant technology and have a remarkable track record of success. With these metal-free implants, you can confidently reclaim your smile, and savour your favourite foods.
How Do Zirconia DENTAL Implants Work?
Zirconia implants have two parts: a fixture and an abutment. The fixture, which acts as the prosthetic tooth root, will be surgically implanted into the jawbone. The process through which these zirconia implants integrate with the jawbone is called ‘osseointegration’. The abutment will then connect the fixture to the ceramic crown, which replaces the visible part of the tooth.
Similar to metal implants, Zirconia implants can be combined with other treatments to provide different implant restorations like implant bridges, implant-supported dentures, and full arch replacement. The best implant restoration for you will depend on your unique case needs, the number of affected teeth and your preferences!
What are the Benefits of Zirconia Implants?
Key benefits of Zirconia (metal-free) implants that make them an attractive choice include:
Since Zirconia is a biocompatible material, Zirconia implants tend to be non-reactive and hypoallergenic. They are an excellent alternative if you have allergic reactions, sensitivities or other complications to metals.
Zirconia implants and crowns have a natural translucency quite similar to that of your natural teeth. This makes them more aesthetically appealing and nearly indistinguishable from your natural teeth! No matter which teeth they replace, zirconia implants offer a beautiful and confident smile.
Zirconia is an extremely hard and durable substance that can sustain pressure. Crafted from such high-quality materials, your zirconia implants are designed to be lightweight yet incredibly strong, with the ability to withstand chewing forces. With proper care and maintenance, they can last for many years.
You can get a jaw-dropping smile faster at With U Dental with our TeethToday process! Using Straumann Group implants and adhering to specific protocols designed by Dr. Edward Lee in our TeethToday process, you may get your stunning, new smile crafted and placed on the day of the surgery if your case meets the criteria!
Versatility is a key advantage when it comes to zirconia implants. These implants are incredibly adaptable and suitable for many tooth replacement scenarios. Whether you need a single tooth, multiple teeth or even an entire arch replaced, zirconia implants can be customised to suit your needs.
Zirconia implants are designed to closely mimic the feel and function of natural teeth. This means that once the implant is in place and fully integrated with the jawbone, you’ll experience a level of comfort similar to having your natural teeth. You can confidently bite into your favourite foods, speak without discomfort and go about your daily activities as usual.
Unlike traditional metal implants, Zirconia implants are corrosion-resistant. They won’t corrode or rust when exposed to corrosive substances. This makes Zirconia implants an excellent choice for people concerned about the effects of corrosion, especially those with metal allergies.
Reduces Plaque Formation
Zirconia is a plaque-resistant material, which makes it less likely to attract bacteria and plaque to the implant surface. This can help to reduce the risk of gum disease and other oral health problems.
How Do I Get Zirconia ImplantS?
Once you discuss your needs and dental goals with our leading implant dentists, we will walk you through the available treatment options. We will also use a 3D CBCT scan to evaluate your bone density and eligibility for implants and create a tailored treatment plan.
We will digitally plan your implant surgery with the help of innovative digital imaging, Digital Smile Design. This helps to achieve the ideal implant placement accurately and cuts down surgery time in half. It also allows you to trial out and preview your new smile before treatment begins.
The implant surgery will be carried out under local or general anaesthesia to ease your pain and keep you relaxed during the procedure. If you meet the criteria for our TeethToday process, we will create and replace your missing teeth on the same day of the surgery.
Our skilled dentists will fabricate your prosthetic teeth meticulously to suit your smile. Depending on your case needs, this stage can take up to 2 weeks to complete.
Your prosthetic tooth will be attached to your zirconia implant, leaving you with a healthy, beautiful smile!
