Ceramic Dental Implants
9 Reasons Why to have
Metal-free Zirconia Dental Implants
1.- Biocompatibility & optimal Osseointegration:
Straumann and CeraRoot implants are made from zirconia—a biocompatible, ceramic material that fosters complete assimilation into the jaw bone.
A recent microscopic study performed Scientists have also reported that zirconia is an ideal material for dental implants.
2.- Allergies & Sensitivities:
Zirconia implants are hypoallergenic, which is not the case with metal implants. Surprisingly, many cases of titanium implant sensitivity show up years after surgery when itchiness and inflammation develop around implant sites. It’s a perfect setup for bone loss and the potential failure of an implant.
Today, there’s a growing number of people who have allergies, skin sensitivities and compromised immune systems; therefore implantation of metal devices should be seriously scrutinized beforehand, especially since the removal of a titanium implant from jaw bone is not a simple procedure.

The inherent problem that frequently arises with titanium implants is an aesthetic one. Patients with thin, translucent gums or those who are prone to gum recession (as are many ageing people) may end up with the grey gums or titanium showing around the margin of the crown. Since zirconia is non-metallic and white, it is much more natural looking than titanium. It’s a perfect base colour that closely mimics what nature created in the first place.
“A metal aura was visible around my gum line of the two upper front teeth with crowns. The root canal treatment had failed after a few years done at my last dentist. Dr Singh described the surgical treatment plan included the immediate placement of implants. After healing, all-ceramic crowns were cemented onto my implants, and the final result is a beautiful, natural smile.”
4.- Non-conductivity of zirconia:
The fact that zirconia does not conduct an electrical charge is a big benefit. Bacterial growth on the surface of a zirconia implant is far less likely to adhere due to its non-conductivity, thus creating an oral environment that promotes much healthier gums.
Straumann and CeraRoot implants do not interfere with the movement of energy though the body’s meridians. And since zirconia implants are bioinert, they’re a perfect tooth replacement solution for patients who adhere to holistic health principles.
The long-term success of implants is one of the most important features of this innovative system. Designed to withstand tremendous masticatory forces, zirconia implants mimic the best of nature with a variety of tooth-like contours and bioinert composition. Zirconia is well known for its durability and inflexibility under pressure…an excellent combination of traits for dental devices.
7.- One-piece design:
Traditional titanium implant systems consist of two metal components (the implant that’s lodged into the jaw and the abutment that sits above the gumline) joined together with a fixation screw. Micro-movement can occur where these pieces meet when under the extreme pressure of chewing, thus creating warm, moist places where anaerobic bacteria have an opportunity to colonize. It’s a perfect setup for an unfortunate cascade of events to follow: the bacteria release toxins, inducing inflammation around the implant, which can eventually lead to bone loss and the possibility of implant failure.
Over the past decades, more ceramic components have been incorporated into dentistry due to their clinically proven strength and aesthetic benefits. Not only is there a trend to include all-ceramic crowns and implant abutments in treatment plans, but the implant itself is now available in a one-piece design made from biocompatible zirconia. CeraRoot implants set the stage for the ultimate in optimal function, superior health and natural beauty.
8.- One-stage surgery:
Implants are designed for immediate placement after tooth extractions. This one-stage surgical approach minimizes implantation time and maximizes comfort. Moreover, a less invasive surgery (one without incisions or suturing) may be possible when there’s no infection and sufficient bone is present at the implant site.
Overall implant patients experience a significant increase in comfort and function afterwards due to biocompatibility and the strength of zirconia.
