Zirconia dental implants
Statistics indicate that there is a large percentage of middle-aged adults who have lost one or more permanent teeth. This may be due to injury, gum disease or another condition. In some cases, a patient may experience total failure of natural teeth by their mid-seventies. Tooth replacement treatment performed today can restore the smile and also reduce the likelihood of bone loss. After a thorough consultation and examination, Dr. Fallah may recommend zirconia dental implants as the most suitable form of tooth replacement.
Dental implant treatment has been in a state of continual development for more than fifty years. Because dental work is visible to the outside world, there is an even greater consideration that must be made than the ability of a material to integrate itself into natural structure. Zirconia implants gives us the best of both worlds.
Findings show the positive aspects of this zirconia oxide ceramic. This material is more lifelike, being white in tone, and exhibits other favorable qualities such as hardness and strength necessary for chewing. Zirconia also has a high threshold for stress, making it an excellent choice for long-term stability.
There are several reasons we prefer zirconia dental implants:
- Zirconia is a more biocompatible material, mimicking many of the attributes found in enamel and bone.
- Patients with allergies, a compromised immune system, and sensitivities can feel comfortable having zirconia implants inserted. We perform reactivity testing to determine the appropriateness of dental materials.
- Due to the absence of metal, zirconia implants are not electrically conducive. The high quality ceramic is also resistant to corrosion.
- Because zirconia is an inert material, there is no obstacle created along the meridian of the treated tooth. The continual support of energy flow makes this type of implant ideal for the holistically minded patient.
Dental implant treatment restores a high degree of your natural chewing function. We are proud of the personal attention we offer to each of our patients and we extend an invitation to you to experience the benefits of compassionate holistic dental care from our team in Carlsbad, CA.
Patient Testimonial on Zirconia implants and crowns.
Dr. Al Fallah
I recently had two implants done with Dr. Fallah. It was a very good experience. He was very professional and I was so surprised how there wasn't pain, or bruising. I only took two pain pills following the surgery. He is very knowledgeable of how the body heals and the protocol he uses is outstanding. I want my children and grandchildren to go to Dr. Fallah, he is kind and compassionate and really good at what he does. The staff are amazing, everyone works together very well. They all went above and beyond to get me on my way to better health, I'm so thankful I found the best dentist for my family. I had the most wonderful experience.
