Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth; they are designed to fuse with bone to become permanent. Implants become part of you, eliminating the discomfort of removable dentures that can cause speech problems. Your dental implants functions like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence and without pain.
Implants are very durable and will last a lifetime with good care. We provide non-metal (zirconium) implants as well as traditional implants. Imagine your smile returned healthy and lasting.
Traditional titanium implant systems consist of two metal components (the implant that's lodged into the jaw and the abutment that sits above the gum-line) joined with a fixation screw. Micro-movement can occur where these pieces meet when under the extreme pressure of chewing, thus creating warm, moist places where anaerobic bacteria have an opportunity to colonize. It's a perfect setup for an unfortunate cascade of events to follow: the bacteria release toxins, inducing inflammation around the implant, which can eventually lead to bone loss and the possibility of implant failure.
Over the past few decades, more ceramic components have been incorporated into dentistry due to their clinically proven strength biocompatibility, and aesthetic benefits. Not only is there a trend to include all-ceramic crowns and implant abutments in treatment plans, but the implant itself is now available in a more biocompatible zirconia material. These implants provide optimal function, superior health, and natural beauty.
In most cases, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for a dental implant. Patients should have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. They also must be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
