Why Zirconia is our choice for dental implant materials and is a great fit at our holistic dental center
Holistic dentistry combines principles, approaches, and methods designed with the best interests of your whole body and self at heart. The International Center for Dental Excellence in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has carefully selected materials, products, technologies, and services that enhance our patients’ smiles and overall health and well-being.
The better biological way
Many dentists’ offices in greater Miami and beyond place titanium implants. As a metal, titanium is not appropriate for individuals with allergies or sensitivities to metals. Furthermore, metals tend not to wear as well over time. As the gums pull away from the teeth, you can see a dark or gray line where the tooth and the soft tissues meet. This discoloration is the metal peeking through. Metals can corrode and attract bacteria over time, putting the surrounding tissues at risk of disease.
Zirconia (or zirconium oxide) accompanies none of those things. It is a hypoallergenic material. So, it is appropriate for all patients, including those concerned about adverse reactions to the material used to make the implant. Since Zirconia is a high-performance ceramic, it is designed to blend in naturally with the rest of the smile. Even if you sustain gum recession over time, your implant-supported teeth will continue to look attractive and natural. Such non-metal materials resist corrosion and help minimize the overgrowth of bacteria that can threaten the surrounding tissues and lead to late-implant failures.
Before and After Images of Zirconium Implants
In addition to these qualities, Zirconia promotes optimal osseointegration, the process of the implant healing and fusing with the jawbone after it has been precisely positioned by our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Cintron. We deliver a convenient and comfortable treatment experience by minimizing the time spent “chairside.” Due to the one-piece design of Zirconia implants, fewer procedures and appointments are necessary to place these “artificial tooth roots.”
Our approach to implants embodies holistic dentistry. Non-toxic Zirconia has many benefits, and its design has eliminated the risks accompanying metal implants.
