Ceramic Implants vs. Titanium Implants
Dental implants are traditionally secured with titanium screws, which was the only available option when dental implants were first introduced. Titanium screws are still used in the majority of dental implants today and are an effective and safe solution, however, recent research in the dental industry have discovered a newer, all-natural material with ceramic implants.
Ceramic implants are a more natural, metal-free alternative to titanium implants. This is ideal for patients who may have a sensitivity to metal or who simply prefer a more natural material to be used. Ceramic implants are just as reliable and as strong as titanium implants, but provide you with a more natural option.
