Ceramic Dental Implants
In addition to titanium implants, ceramic implants made from zirconia offer a metal-free alternative, and this is an attractive option for patients wishing to fully embrace the principles of holistic care. Many patients have concerns regarding possible metal sensitivity and prefer a non-metallic approach to all aspects of dental treatment including dental implant replacement of missing teeth. The results of treatment with ceramic implants are equivalent in terms of success rates.
Ceramic dental implants also offer the most aesthetic solution, being white in colour with no chance of metal showing through the gum. Whether you are looking for better ways to present yourself with family friends or with business associates, this treatment option is a seamless way to improve your smile and your lifestyle without showing any obvious sign of artificial dentistry.
Dr Ferguson uses the Swiss-based Zeramex implant system which is well-supported by scientific studies. In general terms, treatment with ceramic dental implants is identical to treatment with titanium implants.
Alternatively, if you are investigating options to replace entire sets, or bridges, of teeth we can assess your eligibility for All-on-4 treatment. We can restore the gaps in your smile with state-of-the-art implantology that presents the look of natural pearly whites. Please note that we do not use ceramic dental implants for this treatment.
- Function — Improved support for your teeth
