Tooth loss, whether from failing teeth, decay or dental trauma, can create many dental concerns across the board. From cosmetic concerns to oral health issues, missing teeth can become a full body problem if left untreated. When you lose a tooth, it’s easy to feel nothing can fix your issue and leave you feeling helpless. With advanced dentistry, we are able to replace any number of missing teeth with dental implants, more specifically, zirconia implants.
Our zirconia implants are a new and exciting technology to assist Dr. Lauren Anderson in replacing lost teeth. With traditional implants being made of titanium, it’s possible to not think of a stronger alternative, however our zirconia implants are strong, durable, and metal-free making them an advanced, modern option when it comes to restoring your smile!
Our zirconia implants are made of three parts – a post, an abutment, and a prosthesis – all of which are made from zirconia, making it the only metal-free option on the market. Made from a material derived from zircon that consists of zirconium and oxygen elements. Even with zirconium being a metal, it becomes a ceramic material due to the oxidation. While encompassing transitional metal parts, zirconia combines the strength of metal with the heat-resistant power of ceramic, making these zirconia implants a lifelong tooth restoration option. This advanced combination of material is ideal for implants as it will not trigger chemical reactions, migrate to other sites in the body, or corrode. These implants are naturally a white color and can be customized to match your face shape, tooth shape, color, and size.
When it comes to tooth restoration, there are quite a few options on the market nowadays. Traditionally, titanium dental implants are the leading option to restore your complete smile. However, with the technological advancements in dentistry, titanium dental implants have a new counterpart: zirconia implants. Zirconia implants are completely metal-free which is great for those patients that may have an allergy to metal. Compared to titanium’s strength, zirconia implants are just as strong, durable, resistant to corrosion, and are able to fuse with surrounding bone seamlessly. Without all the heavy metal of the titanium implants, zirconia is lighter and feels more natural in your mouth. With the natural tooth color of our zirconia implants, you never have to worry about being able to see the metal through your gums, which allows for you to enjoy a smile that is completely natural looking and feeling. With our new zirconia implants, restoring your smile has never been easier!
While our zirconia implants can restore a complete smile, it does a whole lot more. These implants are hypoallergenic and corrosion resistant due to being metal-free, making it a universal option for those looking to restore their smile. These implant options are strong, durable, and integrate well with the jawbone once placed. Since there isn’t any metal to conduct heat, it creates a faster healing time so you can get to wearing your brand-new smile faster. Expect to avoid the metallic taste with zirconia implants since there isn’t any metal to corrode and enjoy the resistance to plaque buildup due to the smooth finish. Our zirconia implants are also aesthetically pleasing as they are naturally tooth colored to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth for a flawless finish. Zirconia implants are a modern, advanced option to restore any number of missing teeth and create a new zest for life in just a matter of visits with Dr. Anderson!
