At the Swiss Biohealth Clinic, we replace metal implants with metal-free ceramic implants for the highest standards of compatibility, health and aesthetics.
Alternative to metal: ceramic implants
Ceramic implants made of zirconium oxide (also called zirconium oxide implants) can be a genuine alternative to the frequently used titanium implants for people with intolerances. The gums grow onto this metal-free implant solution particularly well, thereby closing the gap for any bacteria that could enter into the blood circulation via the gums.
In addition, ceramic implants do not release any particles into the tissue, therefore eliminating the risk of allergies or intolerances developing. Due to the good level of tolerance, it is no longer possible to imagine biological dentistry without the use of ceramics as an implant material.
Use of ceramic implants cccording to the Swiss Biohealth Concept
Thanks to the “SCC Short Cut Concept According to Dr. Volz” introduced in 2014, our dentists now have the unique opportunity both to remove problem areas, such as metal implants, ischemic osteonecrosis or root-treated teeth, as well as to insert the ceramic implants in one single treatment. This allows the immune system to work perfectly – systemic stress is eliminated and the implants can reliably heal in place.
Durability of ceramic implants?
Studies show that, after 10 years, 80 to 90 percent of implants are still fully functional. However, their durability largely depends on how well the zirconium oxide implants are cared for. We therefore recommend that you pay special attention to oral hygiene and seek treatment immediately for any inflammation or diseases that occur.
Aesthetics and Appearance
The ceramic implants we use are pure white. For this reason, they very closely match the natural color of teeth and are very satisfying with regard to aesthetics. Ceramic implants will give you back your most beautiful smile.
Treatment procedure at the Swiss Biohealth Clinic
Basic Immune should be taken both 4 weeks before as well as 4 weeks after the zirconium oxide implants are inserted. This will stimulate the healing process and stabilize the immune system. The surgical intervention itself lasts approx. 15 minutes per implant. Minimal swelling may occur. Following the treatment, you should take it easy for 3 days and not go to work.
