Titanium and Ceramic Dental Implants

Titanium and Ceramic Dental Implants

Titanium and ceramic dental implants

Dental implants are a highly effective tooth restoration procedure and while they are durable and long-lasting, they possess the ability to function and appear like natural teeth making them an ideal solution for patients with one more missing tooth.

There are several types of dental implants, but the most common are those created from titanium or ceramic. While they are both effective, differences lie in the cost, healing time and longevity. However, both options offer a long-term solution for tooth loss and repairs can be made if they deteriorate or become damaged over time.

Titanium Dental Implants

Titanium implants rarely fracture and offer durability, long-lasting strength, a simple design and better patient outcomes in comparison to ceramic implants. If you have a habit of grinding or clenching your teeth, Dr Puljich may recommend this material to ensure long-term success of the implant.

Ceramic Dental Implants

Ceramic implants offer a suitable substitution for patients with concerns about the use of titanium. Ceramic dental implants have traditionally been less popular than titanium because they are more technique sensitive and have higher rates of complications. However, modern advances have seen improvements in these areas and ceramic implants are starting to become more popular.
