I recently had a patient who came to the office concerned about the metal in conventional implants and fillings. She came to the office originally to have her mercury fillings replaced by white composites. She was missing a tooth in the back and several dentists recommended an implant. She was hesitant to have a traditional titanium metal implant placed and found our office because we offer the newest technology which is a ceramic implant.
A year ago, I came across a new company from Spain, which has a patent to produce all white ceramic implants and is FDA approved. We started to offer these implants in lieu of the traditional metal implants for patients concerned with metal and for cases involving the front teeth. The brand we use is called Cera-Root and we have gotten great results from the implants.
