When it comes to tooth replacement solutions, dental implants are by far the best option. They offer long-lasting, natural-looking teeth that give you all of the functions of your natural teeth.
There are a few different options when it comes to dental implants, and one of those options is the material they are made from.
Typically, most patients have metal or titanium implants. What dentists have found over the years is that the gums don't attach to the metal implants causing them to show through just a little bit.
How do we solve that issue? With non-metal zirconia implants.
We've been using zirconia implants, maybe for about four or five years. And the only difference between zirconia and metal implants is that the gum tissue attaches to the zirconia, where the gum tissue does not attach to the metal implant.
Likewise, non-metal implants offer dental options for patients who cannot have metal added to their bodies due to religion or personal preference.
