Conventional titanium-based implants have been an option for many, although every patient’s needs and requirements are unique. This is why metal-free dental implants are getting known as an alternative for those looking for tooth replacement.
Sani Dental Group offers this and more types of implants. We want to provide valuable information to help patients make the best decision regarding their smiles. Check out the characteristics, benefits, and costs of this metal-free dental alternative.
Conventional Titanium Dental Implants
After the discovery of natural bone attachment to titanium Osseointegration years ago, titanium posts had developed and become one of the most popular tooth restoration procedures.
This type of implant is almost always successful and long-lasting.
Made up of two pieces and titanium, they are highly resistant and strong, which contributes to the high rate of success.
The dentist places the implant. Once stable and osseointegrated into the jaw structure, an abutment is placed on top of the implant. This treatment is usually done in two visits with a period of four to six months in between.
Some patients dislike the idea of having metallic devices placed in their bodies and prefer a more natural alternative. Also, some patients may have an allergic reaction to implants, although it is important to mention allergic reactions are very rare.
Are there metal-free implants?
Yes. Ceramic Implants also known as Metal-free implants are newer than conventional titanium implants. However, a proven reassuring solution with satisfying results. A metal-free alternative of one piece and made of zirconia ceramic material completely free of metal properties.
A highly esthetic option perfect for those looking for a more natural-looking result.
Ceramic dental implants are ivory colored like a natural tooth root that provides a solution for individuals with thin soft tissue biotype, also known as gingiva biotype tissue.
Besides its esthetic benefits, they show favorable soft tissue attachment and excellent osseointegration.
Titanium vs. Metal-free Implants
Both types of implants are considered safe and long-lasting. Some people might think titanium is safer because it has been available for so long. This is true, yet metal-free implants are 100% proof tested, just like the titanium ones.
Both kinds of implants involve placing a base into the jaw, this is why the time required is the same in both cases. Treatment can be completed in two visits with a period of healing time of four to six months in between.
While rare, there have been cases of failure for both types of implants, as the cases of non-integration. Remember not everyone is a candidate for this procedure.
How to know if you’re a candidate for a metal-free implant or an implant?
Patients can replace from one single tooth to a complete set with implants. If you’re interested in restoring your smile, the first step is to schedule an appointment with a dentist of your trust. A complete evaluation must be done to tell if this procedure is suitable and recommended for you.
As this procedure works with osseointegration, it is required a good strong jawbone structure to support the artificial teeth. Those suffering from significant bone loss in the jaw, they might have to undergo additional bone grafting procedures.
Not everyone's jawbone can support the implant.

Fellow Canadian Snowbirds, I just had a full mouth restoration completed on March 10. This dental work included root canals etc. The process was somewhat long and grueling however I am extremely pleased with my new mouth. The professionalism of the dentists( Dr. Gustavo/Dr. Marta), dental assistants(Tony), cleanliness, state-of-the-art equipment, modern environment, etc made my experience worthwhile. I would definitely recommend Sani Dental group for all your dental work including cleanings etc. Of course, the price is RIGHT!!!
