A missing tooth (or teeth) can be the source of needless embarrassment or a lack of self-confidence. Some live with this affliction for long periods of time not realizing that there are options that can satisfy a range of common concerns. Some may have a general fear of the pain they think they might suffer because of the required dental procedure. Others may have concerns that undergoing the required dental procedure may not be worth the effort, fearing that the result may not look any better than the missing tooth itself. There are those who know they have sensitivity issues with various metals used in dental prosthetics such as implants and crowns. Whatever the case may be, clients with missing teeth will benefit from consulting with their Living Wellness Dental Dorchester Holistic dentist about the advantages of ceramic dental implants. Dental implants are the most popular alternative for those who desire dental treatment for missing teeth. Dr. Kindal Robertson and Dr. Jon Calvert, are dedicated to helping clients in and around the community with their oral health needs, including the replacement of missing teeth.
What are ceramic dental implants?
Our dentists work routinely with clients who have experienced tooth loss resulting from trauma, periodontal disease, severe tooth decay, or infection. During a brief collaborative meeting, we can help you find the right solution that meets your needs and value system. Most clients love the idea of dental implants as they can provide a permanent, durable and fixed, hassle-free option, when compared to dental bridges and partial dentures.
Not all implant materials are created equally. One of the critical components of an implant is the abutment which acts as an artificial tooth root and is placed directly in the jaw bone. The abutment is typically fabricated using metals such as titanium. A crown is then placed over the abutment resulting in the appearance of a completely natural-looking tooth. Where front teeth and aesthetics are more of a concern, clients have often found that metals-based abutments cast a dull shadow through the lighter, white ceramic crowns. For this reason, clients are offered ceramic-based abutments along with the ceramic finishing crowns. The restoration results in a brilliant, white, radiant finish.
Ceramic dental implants are an example of a new age medical device innovation designed to meet physiological and aesthetic needs of those who elect to undergo a dental implant procedure. These implants are a safe, affordable, metal-free option for those seeking biocompatible materials for their smiles.
