Ceramic Dental Implants
Why Ceramic Implants?
Dentistry, like health care in general, is constantly evolving. We at PCHD aspire to stay ahead of the curve. The vast majority of dental implants placed in the world are made of titanium alloys. That trend, however, is slowly starting to change. Currently, 12% of women and 15% of men have a metal allergy. As this number increases, healthcare providers are beginning to embrace ceramic implant options. What is more, ceramic implants offer advantages in biocompatibility and esthetics over their titanium counterparts. Sound promising? Ask if ceramic implants are right for you. We check all of our patients for biocompatibility for their ceramic implants with a Clifford Biocompatibility Test prior to treatment.
