All You Need to Know About Zirconia Implants

 A smile is a universal language that expresses love, peace, and joy. It can inspire, provide comfort, and make someone's day brighter. A good set of teeth makes a smile more beautiful.An astonishing number of Americans believe in the powerful impact of healthy teeth in self-esteem, confidence, and appearance. Damaged or missing teeth prevent people from expressing themselves clearly and effectively. 

 

 People are now making dental health a top priority. They are far more open to procedures that will improve their dental health and repair any damage immediately. One of the emerging technologies in dental hygiene iszirconia implants. 

These tooth replacements are relatively new in the market, with only ten years under its belt. But they are already showing promising results. This breakthrough in dental technology is fast becoming the implant of choice for many patients who wanted an alternative to metal implants.

What is a Zirconia Implant?
  • A zirconia implant, also known as ceramic implants, comes in the form of Zirconium Oxide. It is interesting to note that the crystal structure of every ceramic contains both metallic and non-metallic atoms, but it is not considered as a metal. The presence of the oxide changes its composition and structure. So technically, zirconia is indeed "metal-free."
  • A zirconia implants is biocompatible. It means that it has a high acceptance rate with the body. There is a very slim chance that the body will consider it as a foreign object and reject it in the long run. 
  • It also promotes osseointegration, a process wherein bone tissue grows around the implant material, like how it does around the natural tooth roots.
  • At present, there are only one-piece zirconia implant systems. It means that the synthetic tooth root and the abutment are fused.
Is it Safe?

There are no reported cases of an allergic reaction to zirconia implants. They interact favorably with the body and are non-toxic. They are completely safe since the components do not seep into the bloodstream.

Does It Look Good?

Zirconia implants are cream-colored, making its appearance closer to the natural tooth. It makes it barely noticeable among the set of real teeth, making a person's smile flawless. There are no gray metal components that could show through the gum structure.

How is it Cleaned?

A zirconia implant is maintained the same way as the original set of teeth. There is no particular brushing routine, making it easier to maintain. Unlike metal implants, they do not corrode or oxidize, so the surface remains clean. It does not attract plaque or hard deposits, which makes it hard for bacteria to colonize.

How Long is the Healing Process?

Dental implants of any kind involve implanting a base into the jaw structure. They all require some time to heal, and the zirconia implant is no exception. There is an initial pain for a week that can be managed by pain medication. The healing process usually takes from three to six months. During this time, the implant structure will integrate into the jaw.
