Non-metallic dental implants are conventional size implants made of zirconium ceramic or polymer. These implants have only been used for a few years; they are too recent to determine their long-term effectiveness.
The placement technique of these implants is identical to that of conventional titanium implants. Their use depends on the choice of the dentist or specialist and the patient’s preferences.
The main disadvantage of metal-free implants is their much higher cost than conventional titanium implants.
