It is estimated that roughly 70% of adults will lose at least one permanent tooth to decay by the age of 44. This number increases as you age. While tooth loss is not inevitable, it is clearly common. Fortunately, ceramic dental implants can restore the look and functionality of your teeth.

What is a  Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a prosthesis that is surgically implanted into your jaw and acts as a replacement for a tooth’s root. It functions as an anchor to support another orthodontic device such as a crown, bridge or denture.

Dental implants are used when a tooth is missing in its entirety. Whether the tooth is lost due to decay, injury, or disease does not affect this process.

Why Get  Dental Implants?

Dental implants are typically considered a cosmetic procedure because they directly impact the look of your smile.
However, they have serious benefits to your oral health and can prevent further signs of decay.
 Here are the top reasons to replace your missing teeth with ceramic implants.

When you have a missing tooth, your remaining teeth will begin to shift into the open space. This can cause your other teeth to loosen and also affect the health of your gums. Without replacement, you have an increased risk of additional tooth loss.

Unlike other dental solutions, implants act just as your natural teeth do. You will not need any special tools or procedures to care for them and they will not affect your ability to chew or speak.

Dental implants are entirely natural looking and feeling. They are among the best ways to restore your smile when you have a single tooth missing.

Dental implants will last a lifetime when cared for properly. However, it is important to note that the crown or bridge attached to the implant may need to be replaced at some point.

Dental Implants  Vs. a Dental Bridge

When you have a missing tooth, there are several solutions you can explore. Along with an implant, you may also consider a bridge. A bridge is an artificial tooth which is held in place by teeth on either side. Unlike an implant, the bridge is not anchored into your jaw, it is only attached to the teeth on either side of it.

Why Choose an Implant Over a Dental Bridge

Dental bridges have a multitude of benefits including that they are cheaper and are more likely to be covered by insurance. However, they are not nearly as long lasting as an implant which can last a lifetime when cared for properly.

Additionally, dental implants are better for your overall oral health since they function just as your natural teeth do. They can be easily flossed around and do not leave a space underneath the way a bridge does.

Metal Implants  Vs. Ceramic Dental Implants

ceramic implants

Ceramic implants are not just the ceramic teacup of dental implants; they offer a unique alternative to traditional metal-based implants. Made from a strong white ceramic called Zirconia, ceramic implants come with a range of potential benefits that are worth considering. Zirconia is biologically inert, meaning it does not cause any reaction from the body. This allows bone to grow right against its surface and gums to adhere well to it. 

Ceramic implants  also offer cosmetic benefits. Because of their white color, Zirconia implants do not create a gray hue in thin gums like Titanium implants sometimes can. This results in greater aesthetic appeal without compromising strength or durability. So, if you’re seeking an alternative to metal-based implants, ceramic implants might just be the perfect choice.
