If you have one or more missing teeth, zirconia dental implants are the best way to restore your smile. For years, traditional titanium dental implants have been the “go-to” approach for implants. They are proven as successful tooth replacement options and can last for years. However, because they are metal, there is the potential for corrosion. In order to offer the best health options to our patients, we have switched to almost exclusively using zirconia dental implants.
In order to offer the best results, we use an advanced 3D X-ray system and computer-fabrication system. This assists Dr. Blodgett in the accurate placement of the dental implants. This allows us to place strong, beautiful, natural implants that look and function just like your natural teeth. Once the implants have integrated with your bone, you can eat whatever you want with them and they can last a lifetime with proper care!
If you have dentures, zirconia implants can be a great way to keep them from moving around. Dental implants allow you to turn your “false teeth” into “real teeth”!
