The Different Types of Dental Implants
Dental implants are intended to replace one or more missing teeth. Your dentist may have two options in choosing materials for the implants. The two most common substances are titanium and zirconia. Let’s take a quick look at some of the main qualities of each in order to appreciate your options:
– Titanium is extremely hard, lightweight and will not become discoloured over time.
– Zirconia is best for patients who may be allergic to metals.
– However, zirconia may fracture easier than titanium — so your dentist will take this into consideration.
“If you’re a candidate for dental implants, your dentist can discuss which material would be best for your implant.”
