Tooth loss occurs as a result of disease, trauma or poor dental hygiene. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically implanted into the jawbone. It is used to support tooth replacement structures like crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth and help prevent gum and tooth damage, restore appearance, and allow a patient to regain the ability to eat and speak properly.
Traditional dental implants are made of metal titanium. Patients, who are health focused, have allergies to metals, or take a holistic approach toward oral care now have a non-metal dental implant option. Today, non-metal zirconia dental implants are available.
Ceramic zirconia dental implants provide a proven successful metal free option to restoration. They eliminate the concern of metal allergies, are more biocompatible, and work just as well as traditional metal titanium implants.
