Dentistry has come a long way. Our Bowmanville dental office offers a metal free solution in the form of CeraRoot dental implants.
What are some reasons to consider ceramic dental implants?
1-Biocompatibility: CeraRoot dental implants are made from zirconia which is biocompatible and integrates (fuses) into the jaw bone.
2-Allergies & Sensitivities: Although rare, some patients have potential allergies or skin sensitivities to conventional titanium implants. We recommend to consider MELISA testing. It’s an innovative diagnostic tool used to identify metal allergies and sensitivities.
The MELISA test is very useful for the diagnosis of allergies and sensitivities. www.melisa.org
3-Esthetics: Often with the front area of the mouth, and with certain patients that have thin gums, a gray discoloration may appear over time due to the color of the underlying titanium implant. Zirconia is non-metallic and white and closely mimics what nature created in the first place.
