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.

The benefits of Zirconia Dental Implants

Almost everyone will have lost a tooth at some point, so if you are missing some teeth, you are not alone. Many tooth replacement options have been introduced over the years, with none being stronger and more durable than dental implants. A dental implant will mimic the appearance and function of your missing tooth (or teeth) and last a lifetime. Our guests get their dental implants from Dr. John Palmer and the team at Palmer Distinctive Dentistry in Greenville, South Carolina.

What to know about zirconia implants

If you are presented with a choice regarding what material to use for your implant, it will be helpful to know some of the key characteristics of zirconia dental implants.

Less risk of an allergic reaction

While it is incredibly rare, there have been reported allergic reactions to titanium implants. Even with this minimal risk, if you do experience an allergic reaction, it would be more than just some itching or inflammation — you could actually lose your implant. On the other hand, zirconia implants present a better success rate and decreased risk of an allergic reaction thanks to their hypoallergenic properties.

Resistant to corrosion

To put it simply, zirconia will never corrode. When corrosion occurs within your body, it can cause potentially serious issues for your health. This corrosion-resistant property is another reason zirconia has become so popular among dentists. Once implanted, your zirconia implant will remain completely intact. On the other hand, titanium has been found to corrode over time in wet environments such as inside the mouth.

The process by which an implant fuses with the jawbone is known as osseointegration and is what will make or break the success of your dental implant procedure. When the body rejects the implant, it can lead to complications, resulting in the possible loss of your implant. Zirconia has demonstrated very high success rates of osseointegration, making rejection less likely due to its high level of biocompatibility.


 In preparation for your implant placement, a Vitamin C dental IV is recommended the day before, day of procedure and day after the procedure. This helps with the healing process of the implant area, and also helps in decreasing swelling and pain. Also, drinking plenty of water especially several days before your procedure will help as well!
