Why Do Patients Need Dental Implants?
There are numerous clinical and lifestyle reasons to choose the optimal restorative choice which is a dental implant. Over the hundreds of ceramic implants placed by Dr. May, most zirconia dental implants result from:
- Failing root canals
- Root Canal Alternatives
- None restorable decay
- Fracture of crowned or root canaled teeth
- Physical trauma resulting in tooth loss
- Birth defects resulting in missing adult teeth
- Trauma to the teeth
- Root abscesses and infections
Dental Implants are the Superior Solution Among All Restorative Options
Restorative Options for Missing Teeth & Edentulous Patients For patients with 1 or more missing teeth, but less than a full jaw of missing teeth (fully edentulous jaw or mandible) a dental implant is the optimal restoration.
- Dental Implants – Permanent
- Dental Bridge – Permanent
- Dental Partial Prosthesis – Removable
- Full Prosthesis or Denture – Removable
Zirconia Dental Implants
Zirconia dental implants were introduced into dental implantology as an alternative to titanium implants. While metal dental implants made of titanium and titanium alloys have been widely used among traditional dentists, they posed a number of disadvantages such as potential immunologic (allergic) and esthetic (cosmetic) compromises. For this very reason, novel implant technologies became a highly focused effort in the biological dental community and among cosmetic dentists across the globe. At Natural Dentistry we focus of premium and progressive dentistry and after many dental implant patients found the zirconia implants as a superior alternative to titanium dental implants, ensuring that the proven ceramic dental implants maintain or exceed the characteristics that provide titanium implants with their long-term durability and safety. Zirconia is an optimal dental implant material because of its tooth-like color, mechanical properties, biocompatibility within the body, and low plaque affinity. After years spent placing titanium dental implants, Dr. May’s experience in biological and regenerative dentistry along with years of post-residency advanced surgical training in bone and tissue augmentation has earned him the reputation of being the country’s most foremost ceramic implant specialist providing dental implant candidates across the world with a superior alternative to titanium metal through the use of zirconia dental implants.
Zirconia Implants Better than Titanium Implants?
In the dental implant market, the ceramic dental implant is considered the “Tesla” or “BMW M Series” or “Mercedes AMG” (you get the idea of premium car brands, right?) of dental implants compared to titanium implants which can be compared to your everyday budget car. The question every patient must ask themselves, “do I want to risk putting ‘budget’ materials into my body, blood supply, tissues and cranial structures or is my health worth the premium metal-free clinical solution on the dental implant market?” Perio-implantitis is the number one cause of titanium implant failure – unlike zirconia dental implants which have a less than 2% instance of perio-implantitis long term.
