The Highest Standard in Dental Implant Technology
Although conventional titanium-based dental implants virtually never cause a reaction, each patient’s physiology and concerns are unique. We respect each patient’s right and desire to make decisions that fit his or her lifestyle and preferences. We also insist that treatment provided in our office measure up to the highest standards of scientific documentation and predictability. That is why we have offered metal-free dental implants since 2013.
Zirconia Implants Offer a Metal-Free Alternative
Zirconia dental implants are made of medical grade zirconium oxide – a strong, metal-free, biocompatible, white ceramic with more than 20 years of safe and proven service in medicine and dentistry. They are routinely used in hip and other bone reconstructions due to their high strength, biocompatibility and durability. A similar type of zirconia is used routinely in dentistry for crowns and bridges. Zirconia dental implants are an excellent alternative to titanium dental implants. With this alternative, patients seeking a completely metal-free solution for tooth replacement can now permanently replace failing or missing teeth with confidence.
You Can Have a Totally Metal-Free Tooth Replacement: Root-and-All
With Zirconia dental implants it is now possible to replace failing or missing teeth with a completely metal-free “new tooth.” Zirconia dental implants allow our doctors to replace your tooth root with a new, metal-free, biocompatible one. After a short healing time, the jawbone integrates with your new root. Your restorative doctor will then fabricate a new, metal-free crown (tooth portion). There is no need for any metal in your dental treatment whatsoever. The result is safe, strong, natural metal-free tooth replacement.
