If you need to have dental implants to replace missing teeth, then you will usually be offered a standard implant, which includes metal fixings. These are fine for the majority of people, but if you have had a reaction to titanium or nickel alloys in the past, then you may be wary about having metal in your mouth indefinitely. Finding non-metallic dental implants can be difficult, since most dentists only offer the standard versions of implants. However, we can offer you a metal-free ceramic version for peace of mind.
Dental implants which are metal free have zirconium dioxide (Zirconia) and ceramic materials in them instead of the traditional titanium or aluminium fittings. These have been designed to help people with sensitivities to have natural-looking teeth. Zirconium is also considered to have less allergen than other forms of materials. In addition, the zirconium material is also a lot stronger than aluminium or titanium implants, which means that they are more durable.
There are several advantages to getting metal free dental implants, apart from lack of allergens and an increase in strength.
