What are the benefits of Zirconium dental implants for Raleigh residents?

Benefits of Zirconium Dental Implants

Holistic Dental Centers has offices in Both Cary and Cornelius to provide beautiful smiles for patients from Raleigh to Charlotte and beyond. Having a mouth full of beautiful teeth can make a huge difference in our quality of life. Daily habits such as eating and speaking are all performed with the use of our teeth. Missing teeth can lead to loss of bone structure, issues with bite, tooth movement, and even pain. Dental implants are a popular and effective procedure to restore functionality and aesthetics for Raleigh patients who are missing teeth. They provide a foundation for dental crowns, bridges, or dentures and can give patients a beautiful smile. Implants can be used for patients missing one or several teeth and provide a variety of benefits over other restorations.


For many years, titanium was the standard for dental implants. However, in recent years the benefits of using ceramic zirconium implants have emerged. Zirconium implants are a biocompatible alternative to traditional metal implants. Like traditional implants, Zirconium implants are strong, durable, and integrate into the mouth well. They also offer several other added benefits:

  • Holistic – Zirconium implants are a completely metal-free biocompatible solution. This is an excellent option for patients who are concerned about the materials used in their body and support the connection of their oral health to their entire wellbeing.
  • Aesthetically appealing – Ceramic zirconium implants are white and more natural looking. Titanium implants can sometime leave a dark appearance around the gum line.
  • Improved hygiene – Zirconium is resistant to plaque and tartar build-up, helping to reduce the risk of gum disease.

Dental implants require no special care and they are maintained the same way as natural teeth. It is important to practice proper daily oral hygiene and have them examined regularly to make sure that they do not become affected by gum disease. Dental implants cannot get cavities, but they can be impacted by poor oral health.


Like titanium implants, Zirconium implants are surgically implanted into the jawbone to support a cosmetic restoration. Dental implants are convenient and can provide you with dependability, comfort, and a return of self-confidence. If you are missing teeth and would like to learn more about a biocompatible and durable solution to restore your mouth, call our office today to schedule a consultation.
