The Rolls Royce of dental restorations, as close to the real thing as you can get: Ceramic Implants
More Choices than Ever Before
Clients today have a few choices in dentistry when considering types of tooth replacement. From prostheses and bridges to permanent dental implants. For a culmination of reasons implants head the top of the list in regards to preference by both patient and doctor. Implants have medical benefits over other standardized tooth replacement choices but they are also practical, durable and much more pleasing aesthetically.
Ceramic Implants-the Gold Standard: Strong
Currently ceramic implants, also known as zirconium or zirconia, are outpacing other options for tooth replacement at an exponential rate. The material in the implants, Zirconium, in addition to being biologically inert in the human body, and having a high tensile strength (very strong) is considered preferable by many simply because it offers the most real looking tooth replacement option.
Ceramic Implants-the Gold Standard: Beautiful
Since ceramic dental implants can so closely match the look and feel of natural teeth they immediately lend a sense of confidence to the patient. There is no denture to mess with, no embarrassing creams or gels, and no speech issues associated with tooth loss and tooth replacement be it with dentures or other prostheses. There are no restrictions on diet and eating habits, no risk of losing the implant or damaging it while eating. The recipient of a ceramic dental implant also reduces the chance of bone loss in the jaw resulting in the potential of additional dental issues and a diminished jaw-line.
Ceramic Implants-the Gold Standard: Healthy
While the option to use metal implant post, made from titanium, stainless steel or other alloys, for permanent implants can still be performed this option has aesthetic drawbacks. Metal post were the traditional material used in implants for decades; the aesthetic drawbacks included a sliver-grey color to the artificial tooth.
Additionally all white ceramic dental implants will not reveal ugly gray lines like in the case of titanium or other metal implants. In instances of metal implants a distinguishable line is typically seen at base of the new tooth. With Ceramic implants even if soft tissue around the tooth recede, over time, there is no dark metallic line visible at the gum line.
Ceramic Implants-the Gold Standard: Natural
Zirconium, or ceramic implants are virtually indistinguishable from real teeth, they do not absorb stains from food or discolor over time. Ceramic implants can last a lifetime and retain their shape and color for the duration. They can be used in the case of one or a few missing teeth or to anchor other prostheses when appropriate. They support the mouths natural immune system and will not absorb odor, resist plaque and are as easy to maintain as real teeth. They support bone and tissue growth the same way natural bone and teeth do.
Implants are permanent and placing one in such a way that it looks its best and is the most authentic requires a degree of expertise. The placement of permanent implants is a surgical procedure so choosing a skilled doctor with a high degree of expertise is paramount for the best look and feel of your new teeth.
