Zirconia Implants are the choice of Implants for patients seeking a Holistic approach to Implant placement, for patients with allergies to Titanium or for patients who are planning to place Implants in the aesthetic zone of the upper jaw (normally from Canine to Canine or within the smile profile).

Although Zirconia has not been on the market as long as Titanium Implants, studies showing the high osseointegration rates makes Zirconia Implants a great alternative to traditional Implants. In the aesthetic zone Zirconia Implants are ideal due to it’s natural white color, as well as the fact that Zirconia interacts better with the gingival tissues than Titanium. Leaving less probability of early gum recession in that area, etc.

With Zirconia Implants there is no need to worry long term about any grey areas or shadows showing beneath the Crowns, because the actual color of Zirconia is white. Zirconia Implants can come in 1 or 2 pieces depending on the brand used.

7 Reasons You Might Choose Metal-free Zirconia Dental Implants

Best Holistic Option for Patients

Ceramic Implants are made from Zirconia—a biocompatible, ceramic material that fosters complete assimilation into jaw bone.

Optimal osseointegration of Zirconia Implants without any signs of inflammation or foreign body rejection. Other scientists have also reported  that zirconia is an ideal material for dental implants.

Ceramic Dental Implants are an ideal choice for a Smile you want to show off. Titanium Implants can show through the gums, where metal-free implants look like natural teeth and integrate with the body naturally.

  • The white color of Ceramic Implants provides a more natural and aesthetic result for a beautiful smile when compared to metal implants.
  • Receding gums will expose portions of the metal implant causing the surrounding gumline to appear blue or gray.
  • Gums heal extremely well around ceramic implants compared to metal implants that have 20% less blood flow than natural teeth.

Traditional Titanium Implant Systems consist of two metal components (the implant that’s lodged into the jaw and the abutment that sits above the gumline) joined together with a fixation screw. Micro-movement can occur where these pieces meet when under the extreme pressure of chewing, thus creating warm, moist places where anaerobic bacteria have an opportunity to colonize. It’s a perfect setup for an unfortunate cascade of events to follow: the bacteria release toxins, inducing inflammation around the implant, which can eventually lead to bone loss and the possibility of implant failure.

Over the past decades, more ceramic components have been incorporated into dentistry due to their clinically proven strength and aesthetic benefits. Not only is there a trend to include all-ceramic crowns and implant abutments in treatment plans, but the implant itself is now available in a one-piece design made from biocompatible zirconia.

Zirconia Implants are hypoallergenic, which is not the case with metal implants. Surprisingly, many cases of titanium implant sensitivity show up years after surgery when itchiness and inflammation develop around implant sites. It’s a perfect setup for bone loss and the potential failure of an implant.

Today, there’s a growing number of people who have allergies, skin sensitivities and compromised immune systems; therefore implantation of metal devices should be seriously scrutinized beforehand, especially since the removal of a titanium implant from jaw bone is not a simple procedure.

The long-term success of Ceramic Implants is one of the most important features of this innovative system. Designed to withstand tremendous masticatory forces, CeraRoot zirconia implants mimic the best of nature with a variety of tooth-like contours and bioinert composition. Zirconia is well known for its durability and inflexibility under pressure…an excellent combination of traits for dental devices.

Overall, Zirconia Implant Patients experience a shorter implant process, along with the potential for a significant increase in comfort and function afterward due to biocompatibility and the strength of Zirconia.

Zirconia is biocompatible material that is resistant to chemical corrosion, nor will it conduct electricity or heat. As a bioinert material, it will never trigger chemical reactions, migrate to other sites in the body or interfere with the maintenance of optimal oral health.

Titanium is another story. It’s been scientifically proven that a titanium implant will corrode in the wet environment of a mouth, especially if there is more than one metal in the vicinity (such as amalgam fillings, alloy metal crowns, bridges or gold onlays / inlays) to trigger reactions. Metal corrosion is even more active in the presence of fluoride that is free flowing in some water supplies, toothpastes and mouthwashes. It literally attacks the surface of the titanium implants.

Zirconia Dental Implants Design

What Materials do we use

Zirconia Dental Implants Materials

Zirconia has already been used over 40 years for industrial purposes. It is exceptionally durable and 100% biocompatible. For these reasons it is used increasingly in surgery for ear-, fi nger- and hip prostheses. Applications for dentistry are found in zirconia pins, crowns, bridges and implants. The material’s natural white base allows individual colouring in prescribed dentin shades. The biotechnical characteristics of zirconia result in high quality crowns, bridges and implants with excellent biocompatibility and aesthetic appearance.

Zirconia Dental Implants Free Metal

Zirconia implants can be ideal for people who have thinner gingival tissues, and they may be a good solution for people who wish to have a metal-free dental implant. Also, it is extremely rare for people to have allergies to titanium dental implants. However, some people may be sensitive to other metals present in the alloy and could have concerns about having any type of metal in their body. The natural white colour of zirconia is aesthetically appealing, and zirconia implants can help preserve the bone and promote better gingival health. Gum tissue around ceramic materials tends to be healthier, largely because zirconia is inert and doesn’t corrode. One study assessing Straumann ceramic implants in animals found a reduced pocket depth and higher soft tissue attachment compared to an ordinary titanium implant.

The first zirconia dental implants were a one-piece design which, although hygienic and good for soft tissue health, meant they could not heal underneath the gums. The one-piece design could create problems if chair-side adjustments were required. While zirconia is a very strong material when subjected to compressive forces, its elasticity is quite low. If adjustment is needed, this could lead to the formation of micro-cracks that may ultimately cause the failure of the dental implant. Where a small diameter implant is used, low elasticity might cause problems as the possibility of the implant fracturing may increase. Top implant manufacturers have designed and produced implants to mitigate these risks using high-performance zirconia (Y-TZP). Two-piece zirconia dental implants are now available, making it easier for these dental implants to be left undisturbed while osseointegration is completed. This also allows abutments to be customised, all without compromising the strength of the implant.

Zirconia Dental Implants FAQ

The average length of stay in Cancun is between 7 and 14 days. If your procedure doesn’t involve multiple extractions or bone-grafting then your stay will be shorter than those that do require these procedures to allow for adequate recovery time.

Our Dentists recommend that any extractions are performed by us in our state-of-the-art clinic. The success of an All of 4 procedure depends on preserving the maximum amount of bone in the jaw, something that can be compromised during extractions that are not undertaken carefully. As part of our commitment to patient care we would always prefer to provide all procedures so that we can assure the highest quality results for you.

Yes, and you should stop smoking before you come to Mexico to attend for your procedure. As well as the well-known risks to your general health, smoking is associated with a wide variety of oral health problems including tooth loss, bone loss, periodontal disease, reduced oral blood flow and implant failures. Because of the poor outcomes associated with smoking and implant procedures we won’t be able to treat you at our clinic in Cancun until you have signed a waiver stating that you are a non-smoker. We realise that for many people this can be a difficult addiction to break and we will support you with this including providing stop smoking advice and even prescription medication to help you if required.

Not necessarily. In order for us to be able to perform an All on 4 you will need an A1C level below 8.0. Please ask for a test through your regular physician or contact us for more information.

In most cases you will still be a good candidate for dental implants, however we assess each patient on a case-by-case basis. Please let us know if you are taking bisphosphonates and we will be able to advise you more specifically.

Traditional implant technology meant that many people have been told they are not a suitable candidate. With our new All on 4 procedure we find that we are now able to offer implants to almost 90% of patients who had previously been told they were not a viable candidate. Our All on 4 system uses the front area of the jaw which actually contains the densest bone. The unique way that the implants are angled means a much less invasive procedure with no need to enter the sinus cavity. If you have been told in the past that traditional implants aren’t available to you contact us today for the very latest advice and information.

We do, but at our Cancun clinic we use Conscious Sedation. Our aneasthesiologsts provide a perfect balance of sedative and and pain blocking medication to keep you awake and responsive, yet deeply relaxed and totally pain-free. This type of skilled sedation is hugely beneficial to you as it has remarkably short recovery time, and you will be able to carry on with your day soon after the procedure.

The All on 4 implant procedure has a higher success rate than other implant procedures, thanks to to the unique process used. Top quality dentists will ensure you have a thorough after-care advice program to help you to keep your new implants in perfect condition and to care for the implantation sites while final healing is occurring. They will also prescribe medication including antibiotics to support your healing. If you follow the after-care advice then risks of complications like infection is minimal.

The biggest risk comes from a poorly performed procedure itself. At our clinic in Cancun we see several patients each month who have suffered due to visiting an inexperienced or unqualified dentist with too little practical experience of modern implant techniques. The most important advice is to make sure that the clinic and dentist you choose to perform your procedure is modern and well-equipped, with fully accredited personnel, and most importantly a long track record of succesful implant procedures and client testimonials.

Zirconia Dental Implants Guarantee

If a Dental Implant fails, we will replace it at no charge. The following situations are causes of exclusion in guarantee:

  • Patients with previous infections in that area.
  • Smokers, Uncontrolled systemic health problem, such as, but not limited to; Diabetes, autoimmune disorders, severe osteoporosis, or any condition required long steroid use. If smoking or a medical condition is suspected as the cause of implant failure or other complication that requires treatment, an examination and blood tests will be required for warranty to apply.

  • Patient come back at least once to have their Restoration maintained and checked


  • We do not cover Flight and Airfare, Will can cover Hotel at Sotavento, Flamingo, NYX Hotel, Grand Royal Lagoon, BeachScape Kin Ha, Villas Marlin depending on Availability

I would recommend 100% Guarantee against component failure. That liability rests with my selection of manufacturer.

In order to keep this guarantee in effect, you must agree to the following:

  1. You will allow us to perform the necessary therapy, in conjunction with your restorative dentist, to eliminate your oral health problems, and restore your bite.
  2. If it is determined that you “clench” or “grind” your teeth, you will allow your restorative dentist or us to fabricate a bite appliance for you.
  3. You will wear any necessary bite appliance as prescribed.
  4. You will be faithful to the checkup and cleaning schedule which your restorative dentist and we feel is most appropriate to ensure your long term oral health.
  5. You will not smoke. This implant warranty is void for smokers.

If you agree to and abide by the provisions of this warranty, the warranty will remain in effect for your lifetime. However, should you violate one of the provisions listed above, the warranty will be void.

A lifetime guarantee cannot be offered on implant supported overdentures or hybrid or fixed bridgework, as such prostheses often require replacement of worn teeth over time. Tooth replacement in these instances does not require implant removal or replacement.

Dental implant is not fit and forget and is affected by the home care, the health of the surrounding tissue and the prognosis of the remaining dentition. Yearly inspection is necessary. For the peace of mind, patients can take out private dental insurance cover for the implant treatment for the first few years. After 5 years, the chance of failure is very remote. My own implant has been in function for 20 years !

Dentists are not likely to do something which are going to fail! I can only tell my patients that the implant treatment will be carried out with my best ability, using the current knowledge and technology. But with the biologic and science, we are always dealing with probability and there is always a chance of failure, no matter how small.
