CeraRoot dental implants are a unique type of implant that uses full ceramic for both the dental implant itself as well as the restoration. The result is a tooth replacement system that looks as natural as possible while it also restores full function.
With a traditional dental implant, the metal implant is placed deep under the gum to disguise the metal color. This is also where the ceramic restoration is connected via an abutment, but since it is located below the gum line, it can be more difficult to clean.
The difference of using CeraRoot instead of traditional dental implant technology has to do with the unique ceramic implant root. CeraRoot implants are placed at the gum level, which is beneficial for cleanliness and the health of the gum and bone; and because the implant is white, there need be no concern about the metal discoloring the gum.
CeraRoot implants are made from zirconia: a biocompatible, ceramic material that assimilates well into the bone. CeraRoot implants are the perfect choice for people who have a metal allergy, because zirconia implants are hypoallergenic. Zirconia is also bio-inert and does not corrode.
