Ceramic Implants – the natural alternative


Ceramic dental implants are one of the most exciting advancements in dentistry and provide the most holistic method for replacing missing teeth with an implant.

Dental implants have been successfully replacing missing teeth for over 45 years using titanium. Titanium is a metal and as such releases metal ions that can create metal sensitivities and allergies*. Technology and techniques have advanced so it is now possible to restore that gap without causing destruction to the adjacent teeth and with the use of a bio ceramic that has no known sensitivities.

A dental implant adopts the natural function of a tooth root. If teeth are already missing in the front or back of your mouth, ceramic implants can restore your dental function leading to a better quality of life.

At dental wellness, we are proud to offer ceramic implants.

Secured by scientific research over 14 years, and with excellent clinical results, implants from Z-Systems have outstanding safety.
