Improved titanium implants and the introduction of ceramic dental implants have revolutionized aesthetic dentistry. If you are planning to get one, contact your Barrie Dental Office and fix an appointment with your dentist. Following are some differences between titanium implants and CeraRootimplants, that will help you to make an informed decision.
- DIFFERENCE IN STRUCTURE:
Titanium dental implants consist of two parts. Earlier there would be two titanium parts both the implant and the abutment. Since the early 2000s, the titanium implant has been topped with a ceramic abutment.
In the case of a CeraRoot Implant, the implant is completely ceramic and does not have two structures. The one-piece design ensures that there is no micro-movement between the parts which could create spaces where the anaerobic bacteria could build colonies, which would result in the increase of toxins, inflammation and bad odour.
The dentist recommends a CeraRoot implant due to the quality of its final result. The titanium implant leaves grey colour behind on the gums or shows up around the borders of the crown. This is true for those people who have thin and translucent gums or experience gum recession.
CareRoot teeth are not susceptible to chemical reactions and also do not migrate to other parts of the body. It is resistant to corrosion. As it is made of ceramic it does not conduct heat or electricity. On the other hand, titanium implants get corroded in the mouth over a period of time, due to the wet surroundings. The corrosion is also sped up by fluoride, which is found in some water supplies and toothpaste.
As the CeraRoot is made out of ceramic, it makes it biocompatible to the nearby tissues and the bones. The body does not treat it like a foreign body but instead assimilates it into the bones through osseointegration. As time passes the implant becomes a part of the bone and its strength increases and does the comfort of use.
In the case of titanium implants, the opposite holds true. The chemical reactions and metallic nature make the tissues around it to reject the implant as a foreign body. This leads to the bone growing away from it leading to cracks and splits. These cracks can be inhabited by bacteria and could lead to the inflammation of the gums.
Though titanium implants have a low allergic rate, one per cent of people who do get affected by it could have unending issues. It could lead to the spiking of autoimmune responses, pain and inflammation. An allergic reaction could also cause gum regression and bone loss.
In the CeraRoot implants, the restorative margins are at the gum level. This makes them easier to access, clean and maintain. In the case of Titanium implants, the restorative margins are at the bone levels.
