Zirconia Implants FAQs
Good question! I think it’s helpful to look at it this way: porcelain can contain aluminum and natural teeth can contain calcium. Aluminum and calcium are both metals on the periodic table — yet porcelain and natural teeth certainly aren’t made from metal!
It’s the same idea with zirconia. Although it does contain some metal atoms in it, it’s not a metal and doesn’t have the same properties that a metal would.
Sometimes. One-piece zirconia implants don’t require an abutment and crown to be attached later, so in those cases the implant procedure can be shorter.
However, healing times vary between people, so even though a one-piece zirconia implant may have a shorter surgery time, the healing process may be just as long as it is for a titanium implant or two-piece zirconia implant.
Allergies are complex, so it’s impossible to say that absolutely no one may be allergic to zirconia. However, there haven’t been any documented cases of a patient being allergic to their zirconia implants.
For patients who heavily grind or clench their teeth, zirconia implants aren’t ideal.
There isn’t enough long-term research around zirconia implants to say that they wouldn’t fracture if they were constantly placed under pressure from grinding or clenching. A fractured implant would be a significant issue as it would have to be removed and replaced, and that could potentially create a large defect in the jawbone.
