Why you should consider Ceramic Dental Implants
Dental implants are incredibly common. When you are missing a tooth and need a strong and durable replacement, a dental implant is one of your best options for that replacement. While titanium implants tend to be the go-to option, ceramic implants have really started to gain popularity in recent years. Patients seeking ceramic implants from a trusted dentist in the Richmond, Virginia, area have come to trust Dr. Olivia Hart and her friendly team at Virginia Biological Dentistry for their dental implant needs.
Benefits of ceramic implants
Ceramics have, for many years, been used in hip and knee replacement operations. Ceramic makes an excellent replacement material due to its:
- High resistance to wearing down
- Excellent biocompatibility
It is these attributes that make ceramic such an excellent material for use in dental implants. Ceramic implants have a low rejection rate, meaning a very high success rate in implant procedures. Because of the high wear resistance of ceramics, they also provide a durable and long-lasting solution. In addition, they offer high fracture resistance and bending strength, making them pliable and unlikely to fracture and splinter when pressure is applied through chewing.
While ceramic dental implants were initially used, for the most part, by biological dentists, they have started to gain popularity and are being more widely used by general dentists as well. Ceramic implants offer benefits over titanium implants. They can be crafted to more closely match the color of your surrounding teeth, leading to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. They offer an excellent metal-free option for those who may have allergies to titanium and other metals. Ceramic implants also have a lower affinity to attracting or retaining plaque and bacteria. This leads to a dental implant that remains cleaner than other types of dental implants.
