Metal-Free Zirconia Dental Implants

Metal Free dental implants are implants which are made up of the dioxide of zirconium or zirconia, is classified as a ceramic and is non-metallic. The main advantage of Zirconia is that it neither conducts electricity nor interferes with the body's energy systems. It also eliminates the health concerns due to the impact on the immune systems which are related to the long-term use of metals (titanium implants) in the mouth.

Advantages of metal free dental implants

The following are some of the benefits of metal-free implants made up of Zirconium
  • Restoration is extremely stable and strong that lasts for life time
  • Easier for patients to care
  • Reduces the chance of implant failure
  • Look and feel like real teeth due to white color of the material
  • Implants are very resistant to corrosion
  • Implants are highly biocompatible
  • Reduces the incidents of gum disease, high inflammation 
  • Zirconium is lighter than titanium yet exceptionally strong.
  • Zirconium is biocompatible, meaning that it does not cause any allergies (just like titanium); osseointegration is as successful as with conventional titanium implants.
Zirconium implants are white and harmonize better with the colour of natural teeth and gums of the patient, which is not the case with gray titanium implants that can be visible when they are inserted into the jaw.

Some studies have shown that zirconium is more hygienic than the metal components used in the manufacturing of conventional dental implants.

Bone Grafting and Sinus Lift Surgery at Parasu Dental Clinic

Dental implants have grown to be one of the best solutions for missing tooth with its long lasting, stable and natural looking properties. However in people without adequate bone presence in the jaws, dental implants fail to be a plausible option. Bone grafting and sinus lift surgery become important in this context.

The lack of healthy bone for supporting dental implants can occur due to a variety of reasons such as injuries, developmental defects or gum diseases. Bone grafting or augmentation provides an ideal solution in these cases for the restoration of the bone structure, providing a robust base for supporting implants. It also helps in restoring the natural jaw line and smile.

So, how can this be achieved?
Bone augmentation can be carried out with the help of several surgical procedures. However, the most common techniques include bone grafting and sinus lift surgeries. They are explained in details as follows.

Bone grafting

Bone grafting procedure is done to solve the deficiencies in the bone structure by adding up or building up on the jaw bones. This can be done with the help of bones extracted from another part of our body or with those collected from a donor. Nowadays, synthetic bone structures are also popular. The procedure is done after the administration of local or general anaesthesia and would require a healing time of about 3 or 4 months before implants are infused.

Sinus lift

A sinus lift or augmentation surgery is performed on those without an adequate natural bone structure to replace missing back teeth in the upper jaws. This helps in restoring the bone structure below the sinus and providing a sturdy base for implant supported teeth. The procedure requires a healing time of about 1 to 3 months before the implants can be placed.
