Millions of Americans experience tooth loss at some point in their lives, mostly due to tooth decay, periodontal disease, or injury. Dental implants are a revolutionary tooth loss solution that can replace the tooth roots to restore your smile. Your dental implant candidacy will depend on your overall oral health. Dr. Eugene Sambataro and the rest of our Ellicott City team will help you determine if implants are the right option for you.
Why All-Ceramic Dental Implants?
Here at Julian Center for Dental Implants, we use metal-free, all-ceramic dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth. Ceramic implants offer a more holistic option for restoring your smile, and they blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth. This aligns with Dr. Sambataro’s holistic approach to dentistry.
If you’re considering getting dental implants to restore your smile, we’ll help you determine if our metal-free implants are right for you.
Determining Your Dental Implant Candidacy
Dental implants are a revolutionary treatment, and they have a success rate of about 98 percent. That being said, having one or more missing teeth is not the only determining factor. The following signs indicate that you may be a great candidate for dental implants:
- Good oral hygiene habits
- Good oral health
- Sufficient gum health
- Sufficient jawbone density
- Having the time and patience for a process that can take months to complete
Are All-Ceramic Dental Implants the Right Solution for You?
There are many reasons to choose ceramic dental implants. They may be the right solution for you if:
You want a solution that’s 100% metal-free.
Our all-ceramic dental implants are crafted from a durable and tooth-colored ceramic material called zirconia. This biocompatible solution naturally integrates with your bone and develops a lasting, secure attachment.
You want a restoration that works with your smile.
Investing in all-ceramic dental implants means putting your overall well-being first. Our metal-free implant solutions provide healthy soft-tissue attachment and low inflammatory response. This allows your body to heal faster than it would with traditional dental implants. Best of all, you won’t need to worry about the health complications related to metal restorations.
You want a healthy tooth-replacement option.
Zirconia dental implants are the safest tooth-replacement option available because they reverse the negative effects of tooth loss. Thanks to their low plaque affinity, you can experience a whole new level of disease prevention. Our metal-free implants make it more difficult for plaque to adhere to them, promoting long-term success and preventing the development of gum disease. They also stop the progressive bone loss from your jaw caused by missing teeth.
