Zirconium Implants

Zirconium Dental Implants

Zirconium has appeared in recent times as improved ceramic implants; this material has a close-to-metal hardness used in other implants such as titanium.

These implants are the ideal choice for those who have lost a tooth, who have trouble using iron implants, and/or want to improve the quality of their implants in terms of functionality such as chewing food, as well as the appearance of their dentures.

In the world of dentistry, zirconium offers a great advantage since the previously used ceramics could suffer fractures more frequently. On the other hand, aesthetically speaking, zirconium yields that white color that seduces patients and is also more durable.

Why Is It Important to Replace Missing Teeth?

After the loss of a tooth, it is necessary for many people to fill the missing space, not only for aesthetic reasons but also for comfort reasons when chewing and for sensitivity reasons in the affected area.

Hence, if you are familiar with the term, a good option has appeared to replace missing teeth, with a non-metal material, but with similar hardness and a more natural white color, unlike metals that often come with a grayish tone.

Description of the Treatment

The placement of these implants is carried out through surgery, but to reach such surgery, it is necessary to perform some studies first; then, this process is carried out through a few steps as follows:

  • The patient goes through a diagnosis procedure on their tooth, the health of their mouth, as well as the condition of their jawbone through dental x-rays.
  • With a simple surgical intervention, an incision is made in the gum to the maxillary bone, where the pin will be anchored.
  • After a week elapses, the wound points are removed and the process of osseointegration begins.
  • Once the osseointegration process, which can last a few months, is finished, the implant is connected to the artificial root or bolt with a simple surgery.

It should be noted that this treatment can last approximately 3 months or more; it will depend a lot on the osseointegration capacity of each individual.

What to Do After the Procedure Is Done?

After surgical intervention, the healthiest thing is to avoid very hard-to-eat meals, and taking enough rest is necessary.

Take plenty of liquid preferably cold and avoid chewing on the intervened side. It is also advisable to avoid very strenuous physical activities, as well as tobacco and alcohol.
