Benefits of zirconia dental implants
Tooth loss can occur due to a variety of reasons, ranging from tooth decay and infection to traumatic injuries and even genetics. Thanks to modern dental advances, patients have more options than ever before for replacing missing teeth, but not all tooth replacement options are created equal. Patients seeking a biocompatible option that both functions and looks like a natural tooth come from across the globe to visit dentist Dr. David Son in Irvine, CA, where we provide options such as zirconia dental implants.
What is a zirconia dental implant?
Dental implants are often called “the gold standard” in tooth replacement because they most closely mimic a natural tooth’s anatomy and function, and therefore provide the best long-term results for patients. While titanium was the material predominantly used in dental implants for many years, zirconia is a terrific alternative that we use in our metal-free dental practice. Zirconia implants are biocompatible, durable, and tooth-colored, making them perfect for teeth replacement both in the front and back of the mouth.
Benefits of zirconia teeth implants
Dr. Son uses only Swiss-made zirconia dental implants in his metal-free dental practice because they offer many benefits to patients:
- They are compatible with human tissues, which means that they are hypoallergenic, corrosion-resistant, and will not lead to a metallic taste in the mouth
- They are long-lasting against wear and tear and require no extra oral hygiene or care beyond regular brushing, flossing, and routine dental cleanings
- They resemble natural teeth because of their tooth-colored appearance and do not cause a gray color to appear in the gums like titanium implants
- Patients receiving zirconia dental implants can enjoy faster healing times than with other implant materials due to their one-piece design
