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 are getting older and do not want to 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 regain fixed teeth. In this sense, the implant gives our patients and us the chance to make long-term permanent treatment.
So far, 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. These problems are usually related to the breakage of the implant.
Today, with the advancement of this technology, zirconium implants, which contain both white and hard and durable materials, have become popular methods. Both positive and negative results have been obtained in the long-term success of these applications.
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 INTERNAL METAL AND EXTERNAL CERAMIC IMPLANTS?
Combining the robust structure of metal with the biocompatibility of ceramic, implants with ceramic surfaces have provided a specific area of use for the sector and for individuals with immune system diseases, especially those examined with 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 aimed at restoring or protecting the health of the person is decided together with the physician, so the physician is the guide here.
As a dentist, we offer our patients a range of materials and treatment methods to be used while offering treatment options.
In the holistic approach, the patient’s body structure, allergies and the health process brought to that day are as important as the patient’s wishes in this spectrum. Under the guidance of all these, the materials to be used are also selected specifically for the patient.
It is important that the materials to be used in this selection are technological, open to development 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 CERAMIC IMPLANT PRODUCED WITH TITANIUM INSIDE AND CERAMIC OUTSIDE?
Ceramic particles are sprayed onto the surface of a titanium implant, turning the titanium structure into a structure with a ceramic surface. The ceramic surface of the implant surface, i.e. the part that is connected to the gum, should be taken into consideration.
In other words, this part must be biocompatible. In this sense, the neck parts of the developing implants, that is, the parts connected to the gum, contain gold.
Imagine that the inside of an implant is made of titanium and is a very strong structure, the top, that is, the part that connects the bone and the tooth, is ceramic and the part that connects with the gum is gold; in other words, the whole system has been 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 individuals who want to age and maintain their general body health should produce materials suitable for this logic and offer their use.
Likewise, the implant to be used for 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 make their treatments successful by choosing materials suitable for the holistic health of our patients.
