Since the 1960s, people had no choice but to choose titanium implants since titanium was the only material available. However, today, people can now have the option to have ceramic dental implants in Orlando. What makes ceramic dental implants unique? And why should you choose them?
Ceramic or zirconia dental implants are similar to traditional dental implants in many ways but differ in design, material, and color. It boasts of a one-piece design that’s surgically implanted in your jawbone.
The seamless design makes it easier for your oral surgeon to handle the implant compared to the complexity of titanium.
Since it’s basically metal-free, patients who have titanium allergies can be able to enjoy the benefits of wearing dental implants. The color is white, making it more aesthetically pleasing compared to the grayish color of titanium, especially if you have thin gums.
Although ceramic dental implants are durable, they can deteriorate if you don’t maintain them well. Practicing good dental hygiene is essential to prevent tooth decay and gum disease. The good news is that ceramic dental implants do not require special care.
All it takes to keep them in great shape is to brush your teeth two times a day and floss once daily. Regular dental visits should also be part of your oral care.
To protect dental implant crowns, avoid clenching or grinding your teeth. If you suffer from bruxism, let your dentist know so it can be managed and controlled. Usually, patients with bruxism are advised to wear a night guard.
