What Are Zirconium Bridges?

Posted on 4/15/2024 by Weo Admin

Ceramic zirconia is more durable and resilient than conventional porcelain or acrylic dental fillings. This means you can enjoy super crunchy or chewy foods that people who wear dentures avoid. You will not have to be concerned about damaging or breaking your dentures.

Zirconia, which is closely related to titanium, has the appearance and feel of natural teeth. The material does not stain and can very closely match the color of the rest of your teeth.

What Benefits Does Zirconia Offer?

Since zirconia is entirely biocompatible with the human body and hypoallergenic, there is little chance that issues resulting from an allergic reaction will arise. Zirconia is a ceramic and bioinert, so it is not possible that it will rust or spread throughout your body.

Zirconia is a very thick substance that also happens to be very smooth. That prevents it from wearing down the neighboring teeth, whether they are porcelain or real. Its smoothness facilitates better oral hygiene because plaque finds it more challenging to stick to it and cause decay.

How Should Zirconium Bridges Be Taken Care Of?

Zirconium bridges are permanent. They do not need to be removed and cleaned or soaked overnight. You just have to clean your zirconium bridge like your natural teeth. Of course, you should still go to your twice-yearly dental examinations and stay consistent with your brushing and flossing. Take care of your zirconium bridge, and it will last you for a lifetime.

Although zirconia is the newest material used in dentistry and it is already known for its many benefits, titanium is still the most used material for dental implants. To determine if a zirconium bridge is best for your situation, speak with our oral surgeon. The most cutting-edge material for exquisite dental implants that mimic your natural teeth is zirconia. Dental implant surgery is a routine procedure for the oral surgeons at our practice. Contact us online or call us to arrange a consultation.
