The first dental implant was composed of a titanium rod and abutment. Thanks to the advances in dentistry, patients now have more options. Zirconium dental implants are ceramic rods that are placed into the jawbone. These safe, biocompatible tooth replacements are offered at Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers, which proudly serve patients in Charlotte and beyond. Our respected dentists, Dr. Carl McMillan is happy to explain why we choose to offer only metal-free restorations.
Titanium is a metal that will develop corrosion. Some patients may suffer from allergies to metals such as titanium. Rest assured, we only place restorations that are biocompatible and will not pose any harm to the body. With our holistic perspective, we take care of the oral and overall health and well-being of our patients. We take the time to educate patients about the materials available for dental restorations. In addition, we strive to provide the most conservative treatments. When necessary, we may recommend zirconium dental implants to restore the health, function, and beauty of the smile.
There are several reasons zirconium dental implants can be the ideal solution for replacing one or several missing teeth. Tooth loss makes it difficult to bite normally and chew properly. Dental implants serve as tooth roots. We pair them with porcelain crowns to complete the procedure and restore function to smiles. Those who suffer from missing teeth often find it difficult to pronounce certain words. Dental implants and crowns can restore the ability to speak properly. Many patients feel more confident after their smiles are restored.
To explore your candidacy for zirconium dental implants, we recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our dentists. The doctor will review your medical history, thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, and gums; and ask you about your smile goals. After an accurate diagnosis, a treatment plan is tailored to meet your individual needs. Are you ready to restore health and beauty to your smile?
