Types of Dental Implants


Dental implants are some of the most effective ways to replace lost or broken teeth. However, did you know that these modern marvels can be made from a number of different materials? Let’s take a look at two of common options.

Titanium is a great material due to the fact that this metal is both lightweight and durable. Titanium is also unique due to the fact that it is a rather flexible metal. Therefore, the chances of an implant being rejected by the underlying bone are dramatically reduced.

A second interesting option comes in the form of a material known as zirconia. Zirconia is ideal for anyone who is allergic to metals. The only possible drawback is that zirconia implants are made from a single piece; offering less flexibility in regards to where the implant is placed.

Speak with your dentist in order to appreciate which is the best option.

“Different materials may be used for the actual implants, making them more compatible for people with different types of sensitivities.”
