Metal-free, tooth-coloured implants made from ceramic

Dental implants have become the treatment of choice for replacing missing ceramic implantteeth 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.
