Traditionally, dental implants are made of titanium. Titanium is an extremely strong metal and it will continue to be used for many implant cases. However, some patients have metal sensitivities and don’t want titanium implants.
The CeraRoot implant system provides patients with metal-free implant and restorative solutions.
The zirconia advantage
At the turn of the 21st century the CeraRoot implant was created. CeraRoot is an all-zirconia implant that’s acid-etched to increase its contact with the bone. Zirconia is not a metal. It is a ceramic material that is beautifully esthetic and many say has increased biocompatability over traditional implants.
CeraRoot can be used in single tooth replacement. Sometimes it can be used for multiple teeth. Dr. Sheldon continues to place titanium implants because of their great track record. CeraRoot is an excellent option for patients who desire a metal-free solution.
The first step in getting CeraRoot implants is a comprehensive exam, X-rays and consultation with our team of dentists led by Dr. Lee Sheldon
