If you are an adult with either one or more missing teeth, there is a good chance that you are searching for a good tooth replacement option. Dental implants are the most common dental treatment used for adults looking to replace their missing teeth. The traditional dental treatment of dental implants involved metal implants and an artificial tooth crown. At Summit View Biological Dentistry and Wellness, Dr. Chandler and Dr. Geddes only want to provide the people of Park City, Utah, with the most realistic looking and sturdiest type of dental implants available. Metal-free dental implants are made from a ceramic, white material instead of the traditional titanium. These types of implants were created for patients with possible gum recession to use. If a patient obtained a dental implant, their gums started to recede. The metal implant would be visible. With metal-free implants, gums recede. Instead of metal being seen, only more white material would be seen.
Why Choose Metal-Free Dental Implants?
Using tooth-colored material for the entire restoration will make your smile after implant placement looks completely natural. Other than looking completely natural, other significant benefits of ceramic implants would include:
Helps Prevent Health Issues:
Our metal-free implants are hypoallergenic, which means that even people who are allergic to metal can benefit from our long-term tooth replacement. Metal allergies often result in problems such as bone loss and implant failure. Metal-free implants imply that more people can replace their missing teeth with implants without worrying about their sensitivities.
Some patients may refrain from taking advantage of metal-free implants due to the common thought that they aren’t biocompatible like traditional implants. We are here to inform our Park City, Utah residents that our metal-free implants are biocompatible. This means that after we surgically place the implant into the jawbone, the two fuse together.
Ceramic implants have shown to be just as durable and long-lasting as titanium implants. If taken care of properly, each implant placed could last several decades. If any damage occurs to the implant by chance, one of our dental professionals is certified to help.
Due to the new dental technology at Summit View Biological Dentistry and Wellness, we can make the entire implant process quicker and less invasive. Through this technology, we can also provide patients with shorter recovery times.
Improve/Maintain Health of Oral Tissues:
Through chewing, our teeth pass stimulation into the jaw bone, helping it maintain its health. In the areas where teeth are missing, stimulation is non-existent; therefore, gum and bone tissue can deteriorate. Deterioration can risk losing other teeth and not having enough bone density to support an implant. By obtaining a metal-free dental implant as soon as possible, you would be benefiting your oral health.
