Zirconia dental implants offer a metal-free, biocompatible option for replacing missing teeth.

They offer zirconia implants to meet your preference for holistic care.
What Are Zirconia Implants?
Zirconia implants are zirconium oxide ceramic dental implants. Zirconium dioxide is stronger than all other ceramics, so its toughness makes it a reliable alternative to titanium.
What Are the Benefits of Zirconia Implants?
Zirconia implants are beneficial for avoiding a reaction to metal-based dental materials. The implants’ white color provides better aesthetics because they will not show through a thin gumline. Less bacterial biofilm collection leads to lower inflammation around the implants
Why Should I Choose Zirconia Implants Over Traditional Implants?
The biocompatibility of zirconia helps your jawbone and the implants fuse. Zirconia reduces the risk of implant rejection if you have metal sensitivities.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Metal-Free Implants?
You are a good candidate for metal-free implants if you have good oral and overall health and enough bone volume for supporting implants.
