Metal free implants (also known as Zirconia or Ceramic Implants)

With the trend in medicine and dentistry turning increasing to holistic treatments, we are delighted to introduce metal free implants.

These implants can be completely metal free and cement free.

So, what exactly is a metal free or Zirconia or Ceramic implant?

Dental implants are replacements for the roots of a tooth/teeth, and generally have a crown attached to the implant to mimic the natural tooth.

The connection between the crown and the implant is called an abutment.

Conventional dental implants are made of titanium, and have been around since the 1960s, however Zirconia implants have been around more recently – since the late 1980’s in Europe and 2007 in the USA.

Both titanium and zirconia are biocompatible with high levels of osseointegration (bone growing around the implant similar to how bone grows around natural teeth).

Zirconia is known for its likeness to diamonds due to its strength. It is a crystal material that has been altered slightly to give it the cosmetics of a tooth. Zirconia is the crystal form of the transitional metal Zirconium. When the zirconium is treated, stabilised and converted into its crystal phase, it becomes oxidised to Zirconium Oxide, i.e. Zirconia, and becomes a ceramic. This is therefore technically metal free. Some patients have concerns over having metals in their mouth, and prefer to opt for metal free implant options.

Allergies to metal

Titanium allergies are very rare, and therefore the use of titanium implants is common place, even in those patients with metal allergies. There are no documented cases of allergies to Zirconia.

What is the difference between Zirconia and Titanium implants.

  1. Cost: The cost to manufacture Zirconia is higher than titanium, and therefore the cost of Zirconia implants is higher than titanium implants.
  2. Osseointegration and soft tissue healing: Both zirconia and titanium are biocompatible and integrate well with the soft tissues. Titanium implants have been shown to last 20 plus years. Zirconia implants are still under research, and therefore long term studies are not yet readily available regarding the long term success rates of metal free implants.
  3. Aesthetics: Zirconia is known for its superior aesthetics. Some patients with thin bone or gum tissue can be concerned about noting a “grey line” around their crown. With Zirconia implants, there will be no grey showing through the gum tissue due to the absence of metal.
  4. Strength: Titanium implants are extremely strong, and have a high resistance to flexing ad fracture. Zirconia has a lower elasticity which can lead to micro-fractures, but it is also very strong.
