Exclusively in Brooklyn Dental Implant Center
Holistic dentistry describes an approach to dental care that promotes your health as a whole, rather than simply treating your oral health as something separate.
As holistic dentists, at the Dental Implant Center, we completely understand some of the drawbacks of traditional dental implants and offer our patients a truly holistic dental experience. In alignment with our holistic approach, we proudly offer metal-free dental implants. Zirconia implants were introduced into dental implanting as an alternative to titanium implants. We know that not all patients are comfortable with the idea of metal implants as their tooth replacement option, so we offer a holistic approach to dental care.
Patients who have allergies, compromised immune systems or skin sensitivities to metal might not realize it until a long time after their implantation procedure. Whether due to a metal-allergy, sensitivity, a desire for a natural material and/or purely for aesthetics, we provide zirconia metal-free implants as a treatment option to our patients.
The Zirconia dental implants (the material Zirconium Dioxide (ZrO2) or more commonly zirconia) is a naturally occurring, metal-free, highly biocompatible and non-corrosive ceramic that is used in the spaceships because of its high resistance to fracture and heat. It promotes complete osseointegration (completely integrates into jaw bone) and doesn’t provide inflammation because is non-reactive, hypoallergenic and bioinert. As a bioinert material, it will never trigger chemical reactions, migrate to other sites in the body or interfere with the maintenance of optimal oral health. And since Zirconia Dental Implants are biocompatible, they are the perfect choice for tooth replacement. Metal Free implants will not interfere with the movement of energy through the meridian pathways making them ideal for patients who adhere to holistic health principles and biocompatible medicine. Over the past few decades, zirconia ceramic components have been increasingly incorporated into dentistry to replace their metal counterparts due to zirconia’s clinically proven strength and increased aesthetic. Zirconia implants are popular because they give patients a natural, lasting smile, allowing them to live and eat without holding back.
The fact that zirconia does not conduct an electrical charge is a big benefit. The absence of electrical conductivity of the zirconia ceramic makes it more difficult for bacteria to adhere to the implant surface and thus maintaining the hygiene much simpler. This means it is easier to maintain a healthy gum line and decrease inflammation.
Most dentists who place dental implants do not have a holistic option for their patients. At Dental Implant Center, we work hard to ensure that all restoration materials we use are compatible with the body. From our metal free implants to our composite and porcelain materials we use the most biocompatible materials available. Zirconia Implants look and feel like your natural teeth, they help in restoring your confidence and young look. Since they integrate into the structure of your jaw bone, they provide a permanent foundation to prosthetic teeth and dentures which will last a lifetime.
