Titanium Dental Implants
Titanium vs Zirconia Dental Implants BrooklynTitanium is highly suitable for dental implants because it is biocompatible, so the body easily accepts it. The titanium is specially coated to prevent corrosion, and it also has a coating of hydroxyapatite, a substance found in natural bone that encourages new bone growth, ensuring the dental implant osseointegrates (read more about osseointegration) or fuses strongly with the surrounding bone.
Are There Any Side Effects of Using Titanium Dental Implants?
An allergy to titanium is extremely rare, and it is quite difficult to test accurately for, although we can use a MELISA test, which is a blood test that can establish if a patient has an allergy to metal.
Ensuring our dentist in Brooklyn, NY only use the highest quality components greatly reduces the risk of side-effects like:
- Implant corrosion
- Implant failure
However, if you do have metal allergies or sensitivities and are concerned about having any metal in your mouth, zirconia dental implants are entirely metal-free.
Most dental implants including mini dental implants, single tooth implants and full dental implants we are using in our Dental Implant Center in Brooklyn are made from titanium as this metal has numerous beneficial qualities and is widely used in the medical industry.
Zirconia Dental Implants
Zirconia dental implants are made from an extremely strong and durable ceramic material and are metal-free. These implants have been extensively tested and have received FDA approval, and have been used successfully in Europe for many years.
