Are metal-free dental implants a better alternative to metal implants?
Dental implants have become a popular way to replace missing teeth, and it’s mostly because an implant acts just like a real tooth; however, we also understand that some patients aren’t too keen on the idea of having a piece of metal permanently placed into their jawbone. That’s why our Tustin CA dentist Dr. Ramyar Elyassian offers metal-free dental implants. To learn more, talk to our Tustin metal-free dental implant specialist today!
They Are Biocompatible
One of the biggest reasons behind an implant’s success is its biocompatibility with natural bone and tissue. This means that the body isn’t likely to reject the implant once it's placed. Our zirconia dental implants (which is a type of ceramic) offer top-notch biocompatibility with no signs of inflammation or problems years down the road.
They Are Great for People With Allergies
Do you have an allergy or sensitivity to certain metals? If so, then you may have avoided getting dental implants until now. The Tustin metal-free dental implant is completely hypoallergenic, which means that this artificial tooth is ideal for any adult dealing with tooth loss. Some studies have found implant sensitivity in patients years after getting an implant, so by placing a zirconia implant instead of a metal implant we can prevent any allergies or sensitivities that you may not even realize you have until it’s too late.
More Aesthetically Pleasing
If you are someone with receding gums, which is common among older adults, you may find that titanium implants aren’t as hidden as you might have hoped. In some cases, the gums may have receded enough that they are visible through the crown (particularly around the gum line). The good news is that because zirconia implants are not made from metal you won’t have to worry about any discolorations in your new tooth. It's one of the many reasons we recommend Tustin metal-free dental implants.
