05 Oct The Benefits Of Zirconia Dental Implants
Our team understands the importance of a full smile and wants to provide a solution that looks natural, so you can enjoy tooth replacement that matches your smile. In addition to using titanium for dental implants, we can also secure zirconia options. Our Dallas, TX holistic dental office talks about zirconia dental implants!
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants are unlike traditional bridges and removable dentures, in that they rely on crowns attached to other teeth, or claps or suction to keep your new teeth in place. Instead, a dental implant post is inserted into the jaw, a small screw-like device that bonds with the jaw and ensures the post acts as a new root. This stimulates the growth of jawbone tissue to preserve your smile, and allows your new tooth to last for years to come, possibly decades! We then attach an abutment to the post so we can attach a crown for an individual one, or even a bridge or a set of dentures for people with more advanced tooth loss!
Zirconia vs. Titanium
Typically, the post inserted into the jaw is made from titanium, as this material is biocompatible and bonds with the jaw, the body accepting it as natural bone structure. While effective, this can be a problem for people with metal sensitivities and allergies, and could prevent them from receiving tooth replacement. But our team can also provide new roots made from another biocompatible material: zirconia. Thes also fuse to the bone and keep the jaw from losing mass and density, so your smile stays strong. They can support a new tooth or teeth for years to come as well. Don’t let metal allergies prevent you from receiving long-lasting replacement teeth!
Protecting Your New Teeth
Once we have completed your new teeth, we will discuss proper care and attention to help your smile last. These same measures also protect any remaining natural teeth too, preventing the issues like periodontal disease that could lead to lost teeth. Be sure you brush and floss daily, avoid tobacco products, and eat a healthy diet. We may check in from time to time to ensure your new teeth continue to provide quality tooth replacement.
