Carlsbad Dentist Offers Zirconia Dental Implants
Carlsbad area patients who visit Dr. Al A. Fallah for tooth replacement solutions are often advised to consider zirconia dental implants. Zirconia dental implants are a metal-free alternative to traditional implants fabricated from titanium. Zirconia is far more biocompatible and provides many benefits to patients.
DENTAL IMPLANTS EXPLAINED
Patients may be unfamiliar with what dental implants are and how they are used to restore the smile. They can last a lifetime with proper care, eliminating the need for replacements as is seen with bridges and dentures. Dental implants are placed into the jawbone and then restored with a crown, bridge, or denture. This provides the ultimate repair and stability, ensuring the proper function of the smile.
ADVANTAGES OF ZIRCONIA DENTAL IMPLANTS
Zirconia is a beautiful metal-free solution. The implant is made of white ceramic that is biocompatible with the body. The benefits of using zirconia dental implants include:
- Zirconia dental implants are aesthetic. The material is tooth-colored and eliminates the appearance of the gray line often seen along the base of a traditional metal implant.
- Healthy gums are a priority with zirconia implants. Because these implants are made in one piece, they do not have a connection point where bacteria can be trapped and cause periodontal disease.
- High success rates are seen with the placement of zirconia implants, with an overall success of 98% seen in most clinical studies.
- Zirconia is resistant to chemical corrosion and does not trigger chemical reactions that can negatively impact one’s oral health and wellness.
