Are ceramic implants better than titanium?

It is advisable that if you have metal allergies to get tested in order to avoid failure of an implant due to an allergic reaction to titanium.

Zirconia dental implants are actually ceramic dental implants, they are not metal. Because they are ceramic, they can break more easily than the titanium implants.

How long do zirconia dental implants last?

Both titanium and zirconia are biocompatible. This means they will integrate with human bone and gums. During this process, titanium implants fuse so securely that they can last upwards of 15 years or more. Zirconia implants, on the other hand, are too new to know if they will last that long.
