Dentists and patients agree that, when it comes to replacing lost teeth, implants are by far the best option. Unlike bridgework, your adjacent natural teeth are not touched while function and aesthetics can be restored very similar to your own natural teeth. The preservastion of your jaw bone, and the fullness shape of your face, and superior dietary intakes are also among important benefits of dental implants. However, more than one type of implant is now available, and more and more of Dr. Peiman Soleymani’s patients at Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center are taking advantage of zirconia dental implants.
Why Choose Zirconia Dental Implants?
Patients may prefer zirconia implants over titanium-based implants for a number of reasons. Although zirconia, initialy a metal like titanium, once it is transformed into zirconium oxide for dental implant fabrication, it becomes a ceramic bio-structure with some great advantages. This means that individuals with any history of metal allergies and specifically titanium can take advantage of a zirconia implant without any worry about possible reactions. Moreover, zirconia offers many benefits such as wonderful biocompatibility and osseointergration. Based on research, zirconia dental implants have demonstrated wonderful success while there has never been a case of corrosion or allergic reactions to zirconia denal implants. However, what many patients like best about zirconia are its aesthetic qualities, as it is naturally white and looks more like natural teeth. This also means the greyish line that can sometimes be seen above the gums in case of gum recession with titanium implants would not be an issue with zirconia. The zirconia implants we use in our office is a two-piece system, which typically allow for superior aesthetics and function when compared to other one-piece zirconia dental implants.
Getting a Zirconia Dental Implant
As with all dental implants, zirconia implants involve a minor surgical procedure that replaces the missing tooth. An initial consultation with Dr. Soleymani will involve an examination and dental health history to make sure that implants are the best option in your case. Afterwards, he will explain the procedure of placing the implant and the process that follows the initial procedure, which typically takes between eight to twelve weeks to complete.
