You want your bright, eye-catching smile back. You want it to look as natural as possible and make you feel like yourself. A full tooth replacement is in your future, and you want to make sure that every possible angle has been looked at and thought of before going through with the procedure. There are a ton of questions that you want answered before going into your dentist’s office, like what’s at risk with this choice? Will it require any recovery time? What are the chances that the implant will corrode? What about allergies? Is there a chance that your implant will cause an allergic reaction?
The good news is that ceramic implants, also known as zirconia implants, make for a quick and simple tooth replacement at relatively no risk to you. Since it is a surgery, there will be a bit of a recovery stage, but as far as replacements go, ceramic implants are by far the most safe and simple replacement option.
Ceramic implants are designed for single-stage surgeries, meaning that the process has a fast turnaround time. With ceramic implants, there’s no need to wait for a second stage in the process. Instead, every stage of the implant is taken care of in one fell swoop so you can get on with your life with a new, radiant smile.
Corrosion is an important issue to address as well. The last thing you want to deal with is an infection that could lead to severe reactions and complications. Thankfully, zirconia implants do not contain any metal, making corrosion of the materials impossible. By steering clear of any metals, you are guaranteed to avoid any of the complications brought about by titanium implants.
Of course, you also want to make sure that you’re not allergic to any of the materials used in your implant, as that could result in painful and serious complications — and having to pay for a replacement. Many allergens can be found in metals, making ceramic implants ideal for anyone with a metal allergy concern. A lack of metal in the implant also means that there is a lower risk of any sort of inflammatory response, so the chances of there being any allergy-related complications is slim to none.
Last but not least, ceramic implants are made of materials that are bioinert, so the implant itself will not create a shock or illicit a reaction from the oral environment. If, on the off chance, a reaction does occur, it will be minimalistic and a quick fix. This is a much better scenario than having to handle complications arising from metallic implants such as titanium implants.
Ceramic implants have been proven time and again to be a simple, effective, and long lasting option for tooth replacements and are praised for their natural look and lack of oral complications. Concerns of infection, allergic reactions, or any other complications can be put to rest with ceramic replacements, so you can enjoy your new smile without worrying about side effects.
