They replace the tooth root with a large screw made of yttria-stabilized zirconia, a type of ceramic material. Most dental implants use titanium, however, yttria-stabilized zirconia offers much more strength, higher biocompatibility, better beauty, and higher bacterial resistance. In every way, they are superior to titanium implants, even in long-term use. At Smile Columbia Dentistry, we strive to offer our patients the top solutions for every procedure.
