Ceramic dental implants, David Son, DDS, Irvine CA Dental implants are considered the strongest, most reliable alternative to your natural teeth. While the goal is always to save your natural teeth, when that is not an option, Dr. David Son specializes in the placement of ceramic dental implants for patients living in or near Irvine, CA.

The Importance of Restoring Your Teeth

Missing teeth are more than an unsightly complication. Your teeth work as a unit, and if one or more or missing the others can start to drift or travel. An implant is a sturdy, reliable restoration with the feel and function of your natural teeth. It is anchored in your jawbone, giving it the same strength as a natural tooth, while also protecting your jaw from eroding due to shifting teeth.

What to Expect from Ceramic Implants

Your implant will have the look and feel of a natural tooth. While titanium is a common choice for an implant, Dr. Son offers a new metal-free zirconia option. Zirconia is very biocompatible, non-conductive, and safe for the body.

If an implant is right for you, Dr. Son will begin by placing a special biocompatible post in your jawbone, which is slowly integrated into the bone over several weeks. Once your implant post is securely anchored in your jaw, Dr. Son will attach a custom-made ceramic or porcelain crown to the post, giving it the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth. Following the procedure, you will regain the ability to eat and speak normally, and your other teeth will be supported and kept from wandering.

Dr. Son protects and treats the whole patient, offerings gentle, safe treatments that use materials that are safe for the body. Zirconia dental implants are a safe, biocompatible option that result in reduced irritation and fewer side effects.

Dr. Son recognizes that no two patients are the same. He will work closely with you to understand your goals, and he will help you determine the best course of treatment for you. You will discuss the benefits of the options available, as well as the different materials or approaches, and he will make sure you are an informed and active participant in your own care.

If you are missing a tooth, or need to have a tooth removed, Dr. Son can talk you through the options, and help you find the best to a happy and health smile. To learn more about zirconia dental implants, call Dr. Son today for an appointment for consultation at (949) 565-4929.
