Combat Missing Teeth With Non-Metal Ceramic Implants

If you are missing a tooth, chances are you’ve explored numerous possibilities for rectifying the problem. But perhaps one of the best solutions is ceramic tooth implants. S&C Dental’s Scottsdale, AZ practice has mastered the process of installing these innovative alternatives to traditional, metal-based dental implants. Missing teeth can have consequences beyond aesthetics. For example, your teeth help hold your jawline steady and stabilize your other teeth. One of the most noticeable results is bone loss that can lead to a drooping appearance. For that reason – and more – we hope you strongly consider investing in ceramic tooth implants.

The Benefits of Ceramic Dental Implants

Ceramic dental implants are a holistic cosmetic alternative to metal implants. They are durable and non-corrosive – and most importantly – they do not cause any potential allergies. At S&C Dental, we strive to provide the best possible dental solutions to our patients, and ceramic implants are an excellent way to accomplish our goals. There are multiple reasons to choose ceramic over titanium, such as the lack of micro-gaps or cleanliness. They are non-heat conductive and do not have a metallic taste. But the most significant benefits of ceramic dental implants are:

  • One-Piece Design: One of the best advantages of ceramic implants over titanium implants is the lack of healing time. This is because they have a single-piece design that does not require extensive healing time following installation. If you don’t want to wait six months for the implant to adhere to the bone,
  • Aesthetics: Metal implants are always going to be a silver color. Even if the abutment – or false tooth – is flawlessly constructed, there will be a less-than-seamless appearance. That problem does not exist for ceramic implants, which have a beautiful white and smooth color and finish.
  • Better Bond With Bone: The most crucial component of a dental implant is how well the implant adheres to the bone. In general, we have found that ceramic implants are as much or more effective than titanium bridges at osseointegration.
  • Helps With Plaque Accumulation: Because ceramic implants have a smooth finish, they prevent plaque and bacteria better than titanium dental implants. The result is a healthier and happier smile. Most importantly, it prevents implant failure.
  • Durability: Ceramic dental implants can endure up to 150 pounds of force before they fracture or crack, which is a better rate than what you can expect from a titanium implant. The durability factor is what makes them perfect for all age groups.
  • No Allergic Reactions: For those with metal allergies, titanium implants are a no-go. Ceramic implants provide individuals with an alternative. We are grateful for the opportunity to improve our patients’ smiles, and the non-metal properties of ceramic implants are what allow us to do so.
  • No Corrosion: Eventually, your titanium implant will corrode, so why bother? Ceramic implants do not degrade over time, giving them a major advantage for patients who opt for a ceramic dental implant.
  • Cleanliness: We place ceramic implants at the gum line rather than below the gum line. Because the implant itself is above the gums, it is easier to keep the implant itself clean than below the gum.
  • No Metallic Taste: Titanium is a metal. Some patients report a persistent metallic taste they have to grow accustomed to. There is no taste with ceramic implants whatsoever, a major plus for those with sensitive taste buds.
  • Preserved Bone: Titanium can cause bone loss in the area where the dentist places the implant. Because ceramic implants do not cause bone loss, they can be a better long-term option for many patients.

The Steps Of Installing a Dental Implant

We install ceramic dental implants in the same way as we would titanium dental implants – with a few crucial differences. Patients need to understand what they are getting into when they contact us for implants. We want you to feel comfortable. We believe the best way to ensure comfort is by ensuring the patient has a keen understanding of what they’re getting into. To that end, the process for installing ceramic dental implants is as follows:

  1. We want to ensure you do not feel pain during the procedure, so we numb the area.
  2. Your dentist will create a small incision in the gums and the jawbone where we intend to place the implant.
  3. We insert the implant post. The post also includes the abutment, one of the most significant differences between ceramic implants and titanium options.
  4. We place a temporary crown on the abutment to protect it from your tongue and food particles.
  5. Finally, we color-match the crown to the implant, and we’re finished.
