Missing single or several teeth not only affect the appearance of a person’s smile, but it may also increase the risk of decay or future tooth loss. We pride ourselves in providing our patients with the utmost dental care that benefits their overall health. We believe Zirconia dental implants are the natural, holistic solution for individuals who struggle with missing teeth and wish to avoid inserting metal into their bodies.
The healthiest thing to do when a tooth is missing is to have it replaced. Otherwise, there is a risk of problems that may include:
Difficulty biting and chewing
Zirconia is often used as a holistric option for patients wanting an implant solution that will benefit their overall health. Zirconia implants are bio-compatible and hypoallergenic, therefore, sensitivity and allergies are not an issue.
Aesthetics. Traditional titanium dental implant can result in aesthetic complications, specially in patients with gum recession. The gums may develop a viable grey line due to the titanium metal implant or implants inserted into the jaw bone beneath the gums.
Soft Tissue Healing and Ossointegration. Zirconia and titanium implants are both bio-compatible. They both fully integrate with the jawbone and gums, providing a stable structure for the longevity of the dental implant.
Durability. Both Zirconia and titanium dental implants are very durable and offer long-term success. These dental implant types were designed to sustain powerful forces and pressures with ease, such as those endured when chewing or speaking.
Procedure Time. Most Zirconia dental implants consist of one singular piece, making the procedure time much shorter compared to traditional titanium dental implants. Titanium dental implants consist of two pieces: the implant and the abutment.
