FOR A NATURAL-LOOKING SMILE

You have multiple options for tooth replacement. However, a dental implant is the best choice if you want a smile you can show off that feels natural. And no one will be able to tell a tooth was ever missing!

IT WORKS LIKE A NATURAL TOOTH

Dental implants are strong, secure and you never even feel them in your mouth! The ceramic dental implant is your optimal choice to gain back the ability to be able to eat without discomfort or pain.  It’s like turning back the clock.

A HEALTHIER SOLUTION TO TOOTH LOSS

Studies show that people with a full set of teeth tend to live longer lives. Missing teeth are linked to diabetes, obesity, depression and insecurity. Fortunately, dental implants can help prevent or reverse some of these serious health issues.

LASTS A LIFETIME

Did you know that a dental bridge only lasts 7-10 years on average and a partial denture only lasts a couple of years? Do you want a permanent tooth replacement solution? Dental implants are made to last a lifetime when properly maintained.

What is a dental implant?

The implant body or post is the portion of the implant that is inserted into the jawbone. The implant body integrates with the jawbone and becomes the anchor for the new tooth.

The implant abutment is the portion of the dental implant inside the crown. Sometimes the abutment is created with the implant body as one piece. Other times, it is separate and attached to the implant with a screw. The abutment shapes the gum tissue and supports the crown.

The dental implant crown is the portion of the dental implant you see, but if done correctly, no one can tell it is not a natural tooth. The crown is bonded or cemented to the implant abutment and is commonly made of a ceramic or zirconia material because of its naturally white color and strength.

How Does A Dental Implant Work?

Why Ceramic Implants?

What Are Dental Implants Made Of?

Metal Implant

Elements vary by brand, but may include Titanium, Aluminum, Vanadium, Nickel, or other trace elements.

Ceramic Implant

Ceramic implants are a more natural, metal-free tooth replacement option and are made of Zirconium and Oxygen.

Naturally Aesthetic

Ceramic dental implants are an ideal choice for a smile you want to show off. Titanium implants can show through the gums, where metal-free implants look like natural teeth and integrate with the body naturally.

  • The white color of ceramic implants provides a more natural and aesthetic result for a beautiful smile when compared to metal implants.[4]
  • Receding gums will expose portions of the metal implant causing the surrounding gumline to appear blue or gray.[4]
  • Gums heal extremely well around ceramic implants compared to metal implants that have 20% less blood flow than natural teeth.[1]

Naturally Strong

  • Zirconia is extremely strong and can withstand two times the maximum stress and strain loads that commercially pure titanium and titanium alloys can.[11]
  • Success rates of ceramic implants after 5 years are over 95% because of its strength and natural ability to integrate with our bones and our bodies.[13], [5]
  • Increases chewing forces allowing you more food choices.
  • Long-lasting because ceramic dental implants do not decay like natural teeth.[5]

Naturally Healthy

As the dental implant industry shifts towards providing better and healthier tooth replacement options, top clinicians are now recommending ceramic implants for the health-conscious patient more than ever.

  • Because ceramic implants are more natural, bone resorption and inflammatory responses are much less when compared to those caused by titanium implants.[5]
  • Due to decreased inflammatory response in metal-free ceramic implants, there is no need for concerns of systemic inflammatory responses.[5]
  • Ceramic implants do not promote corrosion, plaque formation or peri-implantitis like titanium implants can.[6],[2]
  • Titanium implants are more susceptible to peri-implantitis, an inflammatory disease affecting soft and hard tissues surrounding dental implants, that can lead to implant failure.[2],[3]
