Metal-free, tooth-coloured implants made from ceramic
Dental implants have become the treatment of choice for replacing missing teeth and look and perform like natural teeth. Traditionally the screw, (implant) and post, (abutment) which support the crown, are made from titanium. However, due to the latest innovation in implant technology, implants and abutments are now available in ceramic, meaning they are both metal-free and tooth coloured.
What are the specific benefits of ceramic implants?
Ceramic implants offer all of the functional benefits associated with titanium implants: reliability, high strength, excellent integration in the bone with the added benefits of being:
a metal-free alternative with excellent biocompatibility
the same colour as a natural tooth so will not shimmer through thin or recessed gums
an alternative implant solution for patients allergic to metal or with heightened gum sensitivity
Treatment and aftercare
Implant treatment and aftercare is identical for metal and non-metal implants and our Specialist Prosthodontists will be able to talk you through both options and will advise you of the best solution to meet your individual needs.
