Zirconia Implants and the Evolution of the Dental Implant

Many people are familiar with titanium dental implants. Some patients would prefer to avoid having a metallic implant placed and previously these patients’ desires were not able to be accommodated.

That has changed now with the Nobel Pearl Zirconia dental implant

Zirconia is a ceramic that is white in color and has been proven to be an effective dental implant material.  Advantages of a dental implant made of zirconia is natural aesthetics, improved attachment to gum tissue, and low plaque affinity.  

Dental implants are indicated to replace either a single tooth, or in some cases, multiple teeth. For anyone desiring a dental implant, whether constructed of titanium or zirconia, we would recommend a consult with us to evaluate the amount of bone present and space available for dental implant placement.

As Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, Dr. Guyette and Dr. Beehner are uniquely talented at evaluating patients for dental implant placement. In some cases, bone grafting can be performed to build up lost bone to allow dental implant placement in areas that were previously too small for dental implant surgery. We work with your dentist who will build the tooth that attaches the dental implants once they are consolidated in your jaw.
