Dentist Greenville SC - Five Star Reviews
Five star review from Google
Palmer distinctive dentistry was the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. They treat you with respect and everyone is very courteous. Pricing is reasonable and the work I had done was quick and painless. Although the time the doctor spent explaining all the options was priceless.

Why Zirconia dental implants in Greenville, SC can preserve your smile and health

Dental implants have become one of the most sought after and effective forms of tooth replacement. They can be used to replace one tooth or an entire arch of teeth, making them durable and versatile. More and more dentists all around the world are recommending dental implants because of their success rate.

 

A dental implant consists of three parts: the post, the abutment, and the restoration. The dentist will implant the post into the jawbone and leave it to heal for a period of months. During this healing time, known as osseointegration, the bone fuses around the implant allowing it to function just like a natural tooth root. Once the implant has healed, it can be topped with an abutment, which connects the implant with the restoration of choice. Depending on the situation, a crown, dental bridge, or even dentures will be placed on top of the abutment to complete the restoration.

 

In the past, titanium was the most common material used for dental implants. It is a material that is commonly used in other medical procedures such as hip or knee replacements, which appears to make it an understandable choice for dental implants. As a holistic dental practitioner, Dr. Palmer believes in using only biocompatible materials. Titanium is a metal, which can lead to adverse reactions for some guests. Restorations that use metal such as titanium implants or amalgam fillings constantly expose the guest to metal ions. This can have a significant impact on the body and potentially lead to other health issues.

 

At Palmer Distinctive Dentistry, we offer guests a holistic alternative: zirconia implants. The Z3 implants are made of a biocompatible ceramic, which has no risk of metal ion exposure. Zirconia implants have been used for decades in Europe and they have now become popular in the United States as an effective and safe alternative to titanium. Zirconia implants offer the same benefits as titanium implants and because they are composed of ceramic, which is naturally white in color, there is no risk of gray lines appearing along the gum line.

 

If you are in Greenville, SC or one of the surrounding areas and you would like to hear more about zirconia dental implants, call today.
