Ceramic Dental Implants
Ceramic implants made from zirconia offer a metal-free alternative, providing an option for patients who feel nervous about metal implants, or have allergies to particular metals. Many patients have concerns regarding metal sensitivity and prefer a non-metallic approach to dental treatment - including dental implants. Ceramic implants have the same success rate as titanium-based implants.
Ceramic dental implants sometimes offer a more aesthetically attractive solution, mimicking the shade of natural teeth and avoiding the dark grey coloration of metal showing in the event of gum recession.
Dr Ferguson uses the Swiss-based Zeramex implant system that is well-supported by scientific studies. In general terms, treatment with ceramic dental implants is identical to treatment with titanium implants.
