At Gorelik Dentistry, we are proud to offer ceramic implants for our patients who seek the permanence and durability of dental implants when replacing lost teeth.

Up until now, dentists have mainly relied on titanium implants. With the advancement of biocompatible materials such as zirconium oxide, ceramic implants are becoming increasingly popular over their┬átitanium counterparts. Zirconia implants are metal-free, which is a hallmark of our practice’s holistic approach to dentistry.

Let’s look at some of the other benefits offered by zirconia dental implants:

-They are actually stronger than titanium implants.
-They are white so they look like natural teeth and don’t leave a grey shadow beneath the gum tissue like titanium can.
-They are highly resistant to corrosion, so they don’t give off tiny fragments into your lymph nodes, bone, or oral tissue.
-They are high-quality titanium alternatives and are the implant restoration of choice for holistic dentists.
-They are biocompatible, so they rarely cause allergic reactions and are less damaging to the immune system.
-Their biocompatibility allows the gum tissue to grow around the abutment, unlike titanium implants which often cause the gums to recede.
-Since they are metal-free you won’t experience a metallic aftertaste or electronic disturbance as happens with titanium implants.
-With ceramic implants, bone can grow up to the surface of the implant, allowing it to be anchored by the bone growth.
-Unlike titanium implants, oral bacteria and plaque don’t stick to the zirconia resulting in less inflammation of the gums.
-Because the zirconia implant is constructed in one piece there’s no connector that could allow bacteria to accumulate, and as a result, less chance of gum inflammation.
