CeraRoot Dental Implants
CeraRoot Zirconia Ceramic Dental Implants
The CeraRoot Dental Implant is an efficient dental solution to replace missing teeth or tooth that may require replacement. The CeraRoot is made from zirconia oxide, which is a ceramic and has proven advantages over traditional metal implants—though healing of bone with both materials is similar. If you are trying to make up your mind between CeraRoot and titanium metal implants, here are some facts to consider before you choose either:
As zirconia is made up of highly biocompatible material, a strong fixation takes place between the ceramic implant and the bone. A University of Minnesota study confirmed the strong osseointegration, or level of fixation to the bone, of CeraRoot implants. Several other scientific publications have published similar results confirming that zirconia is an appropriate material for dental implants.
Sensitivities & Allergies
People have different kinds of known and unknown medical sensitivities, allergies, and other immune system alterations that may prohibit the implantation of a metal device in the body. But in the majority of the titanium implants, allergy cases develop after long-lasting exposure to the metal. So, a patient may not be allergic or sensitive on the day of the surgery but may develop it after some years of direct contact with the metal. The allergic reaction may include redness, itching, inflammation, and discomfort, and could result in bone loss around the implant.
Zirconia implants have a color advantage: they are white and for this reason are preferred over metal titanium implants despite having some shortcomings. In patients with thin gums, a titanium implant may show through the gum tissue—appearing gray. The recession of the gums due to the aging process may also cause the metal of the titanium implant to be visible in the mouth.
Resistance To Corrosion
Zirconia implants are significantly more biocompatible than titanium implants. Zirconia resists chemical corrosion, and is a thermal and electric insulator. These three properties of zirconia make it a bio-inert material, which ensures that the surrounding tissues around the implants remain healthy.
It’s much more difficult for bacteria to adhere to the surface of the implants due to zirconia’s non-electric conductivity property. This makes it easier for patients to avoid bleeding of the tissues, and clean them to ensure their long-term health.
The body’s energy meridians are not altered by CeraRoot implants. The bio-enert zirconia implants are a suitable solution for patients who care about the principles of holistic medicine.
CeraRoot implants are designed to withstand the masticatory forces of the mouth so that, as a replacement for natural teeth and a sound biological solution, they can carry out the vital function of the mouth. Therefore, both the length and the diameter are similar to those of natural teeth.
Implant’s One-Piece Design
Conventional titanium implants systems can have adverse health fallout. These implants are placed at bone level, and the abutment connection is affixed to the implant through a fixation screw. The multiple parts of the implants can be colonized by anaerobic bacteria that grow and produce toxins, which trigger peri-implant inflammation. Often, patients don’t even feel this inflammation. The primary indications of peri-implant inflammation are swelling, bleeding, halitosis, and pus suppuration. The damage resulting from the inflammatory process can result in bone loss around the implant, and long-term success of the implant is severely compromised.
As compared to these problems with titanium implants, the one-piece design of CeraRoot zirconia implants can eliminate all these issues. Moreover, the aspect of the tissues surrounding the one-piece implants matches the body’s natural dentition.
Surgery In Just One Stage
The CeraRoot implant placement has a one-stage approach. The implants are specifically designed to be immediately placement right after the tooth extraction. Minimal invasive surgery may be required in some instances. If there is no infection and the bone is sufficient, the implant may be positioned through the gum without making incisions and sutures to the gum.
