Why are Ceramic Implants Preferred Today?
Implant treatments are the most popular method of replacing missing or missing teeth today.
Why are implant treatments popular?
Because day by day, people do not want to grow old and grow old. For this reason, people who do not want to cut their adjacent teeth in the treatment of missing teeth or who are completely toothless want to have fixed teeth again. In this sense, the implant gives our patients and us the chance to make long-term permanent treatment.
Until now, dentists mainly prefer titanium implants.
As we explained at the beginning of our article, people want to get older but not get old. As a result of the desire to stay young and healthy, holistic approaches and treatment methods are preferred to combat some systemic diseases and autoimmune diseases.
When were ceramic implants first applied?
Ceramic implants were applied in the years when implants were first discovered, but there were some problems with these applications and these problems were usually related to the breakage of the implant.
For this reason, zirconium implants, which contain both white and hard durable material, have also become popular methods. This application has also experienced some advantages and disadvantages.
The aim of all these is to create a ceramic and bone connection in contact with the body. In other words, to provide biocompatibility.
What has changed with the production of ceramic implants with metal inside and ceramic outside?
Implants with ceramic surfaces that provide the strength of metal and the biocompatibility of ceramic have provided a specific area of use for the sector and for individuals with immune system diseases in a holistic approach.
In terms of holistic health, the most important issue in terms of health in applications to the body is personalized solutions.
For this reason, the treatment to restore or maintain the health of the person is decided together with the physician, so the doctor is the authority here.
As dentists, we offer a range of materials and treatment methods to be used while offering treatment options to our patients.
In this holistic approach, the patient’s body structure, allergies and health history are as important as the patient’s wishes.
In this selection, it is important that the materials to be used develop with technology and that this development is based on proof. For this reason, the technological development of ceramic implants is very exciting.
As with all implant systems, technological developments in ceramic implants lead us towards conscious choices about the range we offer to our patients at this point.
How is a titanium implant produced?
When the surface of a titanium implant is turned into a structure with a ceramic surface by spraying ceramic particles on its surface, its neck, that is, the part where it is connected to the gingiva, should also be considered.
In other words, this part must be biocompatible. In this sense, the implants developed in this sense also contain gold in the neck parts, that is, the parts connected to the gum.
Imagine that the inside of an implant is made of titanium and a very strong structure, that is, the part that connects the bone and the tooth is ceramic and the part that connects with the gum is gold, that is, the whole system is developed according to tissue compatibility.
What is the contribution of the ceramic implant to the dentist?
Technological development should facilitate human life and be functional, that is, it should provide the dentist with ease of application and a durable and safe usage area.
For our patients, technology should be in accordance with the body’s wishes and should produce and use materials suitable for this logic in individuals who want to age and maintain their general body health.
Likewise, the implant to be used in our business partners, that is, our technicians, should provide ease of use in technological terms.
Within the knowledge of all these, we, as dentists, have to primarily observe the health of our patients. During this surveillance, we work in cooperation with medical doctors and we want to make their treatments successful by choosing materials suitable for the holistic health of our patients.
