introducing
Z-Systems Ceramic Implants
Exclusively in Greenville from Dr. John Palmer

The Only FDA Approved 100 % Metal Free Implants, Superior to Titanium Implants in Many Areas:

More natural.

Bones and gums integrate better with zirconium oxide ceramics.

Healthier.

Z-SYSTEMS implants are metal-free, biocompatible, conduct neither heat nor electrical energy, and cause no irritation to the immune system.

More sustainable.

Less plaque accretion than on titanium. This reduces the risk of perimplantitis as well as cardiovascular diseases and strokes.

Stronger.

Ceramic is much stronger than titanium.

More aesthetic.

Thanks to the white material, no gray shadows are visible even with thin or receding gums.

More visible.

Ceramic implants are opaque to X-rays, and easier to recognize in critical situations.

What Is A Dental Implant?

Ceramic Dental Implant Screw Diagram

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.

Ceramic Dental Implant Abutment Diagram

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.

Ceramic Dental Implant Crown Diagram

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.

He founded Palmer Distinctive Dentistry with the goal of providing individualized dental care in a comfortable atmosphere with biocompatible materials and gentle procedures. He incorporates the latest technology and stays at the forefront of new research and discoveries, to bring you the best that dentistry has to offer.

He uses IAOMT (International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology) established procedures and maintains awareness that anything affecting your mouth also affects your whole body. Advanced laser technology and ozone therapy are among the safe and surgery-free techniques employed to treat periodontal (gum) disease.

Dr. Palmer chose to establish the first Center for Dental Medicine in the region, with a vision of bridging the gap between the dental and medical communities. This helps in the identification of diseases in the mouth, which may have the potential for causing disease throughout the body.
