Ceramic or Titanium Implants?

Nov 14, 2018

The case for Ceramic Implants:

  • Biocompatible and metal free.
  • White coloured resembling natural teeth and providing better aesthetic results.
  • Placed at gum level so they are better preserved.
  • Plaque has a very low tendency to adhere on zirconia.
  • Very low possibility to cause periimplantitis when properly brushed and cleaned.
  • Cannot oxidize or corrode.
  • More expensive than titanium implants.
  • Studies and research not as extensive as for titanium implants.

Highly successful and proven titanium implants:

  • Success rate is high with over 30 years of experience and with extensive studies and research.
  • Titanium can oxidize or corrode.
  • Grey colouring is possible.
  • High rates of periimplantitis, because bacteria attach easier on metal surfaces and are more difficult to clean.
  • Autoimmune diseases can possibly be triggered from titanium.
  • Cheaper than ceramic.
