Zirconia Dental Implants
Some patients prefer implants that don't contain any metal. In these cases, Dr. Moshrefi and Daneshmand are excited to provide zirconia all-ceramic implants. In fact, when you are looking for the best zirconia dental implants Beverly Hills can offer, our practice is one of only a few qualified to do the procedure, although they have been used successfully and safely in Europe for more than a decade.
Not only do they perform as well as titanium implants, but possibly better. The main reason for this is because ceramic, a very strong and biocompatible material, will not corrode. We use CeraRoot implants, which feature a ceramic post and abutment. The abutment is the top of the post that will attach to the crown. With a CeraRoot implant, the whole restoration is white, so there is no possibility of metal showing under the crown. Thus, you have a very natural-looking restoration that is also very strong and resistant to bacteria.

A dental implant is done to replace a tooth or several teeth. It is a post that is surgically placed in the jawbone, simulating the root of the missing tooth. The post provides a very strong, secure foundation upon which a crown will be attached in the final stages of the restoration. The result is a stable restoration that looks, feels and acts like a natural tooth.
About Ceramic Implants
Zirconia dental implants are made from a ceramic material that encourages complete bonding with the bone in the jaw. These ceramic posts have been shown to integrate seamlessly into the body, without signs of inflammation or the risk of rejection.
Patients who have thin or semitransparent gums may have a condition in which the titanium posts are visible under the thin gum tissue. This gives an unsightly, less-than-desirable appearance, particularly if the gums recede to some degree in the future. With zirconia dental implants, the post matches the material of the bone flawlessly, blending with the material of your natural teeth to provide a natural, healthy appearance. As zirconia dental implants are designed to be placed immediately following tooth extraction, there is no embarrassing adjustment period needed while a titanium post is integrated into your jawbone.
As zirconia dental implants are crafted from a ceramic material, none of these issues are a problem. In the past metal was used for dental work because of the strength of the material, and the long-term strength of the material. Through careful scientific examination, it's been found that advanced zirconia implants, crafted from customized ceramic material, has the mechanical strength to go the distance. Even better, ceramic is both non-corrosive and non-allergenic providing long-term, natural-looking tooth replacements. These implants make it possible to be free from concerns about the potential of consequences from introducing metal into your body.
The amount of measurable force exerted by the teeth and jaw through the act of chewing is the greatest force your body creates. The ceramic used in zirconia dental implants is created specifically to withstand the force of chewing. As zirconia is known for durability and longevity, your tooth restoration will be sturdy, attractive, and function exactly like a natural tooth – perfect.
