The advantages of Zirconia Dental Implants for patients in Greenville, SC
If you are facing the loss of your natural teeth, you have probably started to investigate options for tooth replacement. When looking at your options, there are a few things you will want to consider:
- Will the restoration look natural?
- Will I be able to bite and chew normally?
- Will there be any special care required?
At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we believe in providing patients with high quality holistic dental restorations that restore beauty and functionality.
What do we mean by holistic restorations?
Any foreign material that is used in the body can have an impact on health and wellness. At our practice, we opt to use biocompatible materials. This means that they will not cause any harm to the tissue and organs in the body. One of the most common ways we do this is by using composite resin fillings as opposed to mercury amalgam.
When it comes to tooth replacement, we offer Zirconia dental implants, which are a biocompatible alternative to the commonly used titanium dental implants. Zirconia is a metal-free, ceramic material that makes a beautiful and holistic restoration.
Dental implants are an excellent choice to replace the loss of natural teeth because they are held firmly in place in the jawbone. The implants function as a replacement tooth root, which will provide you with all of the stability of a natural tooth. Once the implant is in place and the jawbone has fused around it, a prosthetic such as a dental crown, bridge, or denture can be affixed to it.
How do implants stack up against other restorations?
Dental implants are the only restoration that extends below the gum tissue into the jawbone. Dental bridges rely on the stability of adjacent teeth while dentures sit on top of the gums and they are held in place with dental adhesive and suction. While both of these restorations have applicable uses, dental implants are the only restoration that will have function that matches natural teeth. Dental implants also require no special care; you simply brush and floss as you normally would.
