Are you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak, and eat again with comfort and confidence? Maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. We have good news! Dental implants can provide you with new teeth that look and feel just like your own.
Under proper conditions, dental implants can last a lifetime. In fact, dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or for some other reason.
Initially, implants were all made of pure titanium. Today that is no longer the case. Many implants used today are made of titanium mixed with aluminum and vanadium. While they are cheaper, cheaper is rarely better. When we screen for biocompatibility, we find that most people are sensitive to these cheaper titanium alloys. We favor implants being manufactured in Europe where standards for biocompatibility are more stringent.
For some time, we used only pure titanium implants because we found that most patients are not sensitive to pure titanium. Now we are able to offer implants that are metal-free made of a material called Zirconia.
Our decision as to the best option for you is made based on consideration of your preferences and biologic needs. If you are missing teeth and are interested in using the healthiest, most biocompatible methods to replace them, give us a call today!
