Zirconia Dental Implants Create Healthy, Natural-Looking Smiles.
Dental implants have become the gold standard in tooth replacement, and today are usually the preferred option in care over bridges or dentures. Implant restorations feel natural and function like natural teeth because the implant becomes part of your body. Today, however, many people do not want metal (conventional dental implants are made of titanium) in their bodies. For this reason, Dr. Jack T. Krauser & Dr. Lawrence J. Dario offer another option in care.
By using zirconia dental implants, we can create biocompatible, healthy, and natural-looking smiles.
Importance of Tooth Replacement
Since most adults have 28 to 32 teeth, you might wonder why replacing a missing one is so important. Dr. Jack T. Krauser & Dr. Lawrence J. Dario know that the impact of a missing tooth goes far beyond a gap in your smile; it also affects your overall health and well-being. Committed to providing the highest standard of care, Drs. Krauser & Dr. Dario serve as clinicians and lecturers to Zeramex®, a global leader in non-metal, zirconia dental implants.
How Missing Teeth Affect Your Smile
- The remaining teeth drift into unhealthy positions.
- Crooked teeth trap food debris and harbor harmful oral bacteria, increasing risk of tooth decay and gum disease - even if you brush and floss conscientiously.
- Missing teeth may also limit your diet, inhibiting nutritional intake.
- Cause your facial muscles to collapse affecting your smile.
Zirconia in Dentistry
Zirconia is an extremely hard and durable biocompatible dental material. First industrially processed in 1925 and improved in 1945, the medical community soon embraced zirconia for prosthetic devices like hip and knee replacement.
The white color and extreme strength of zirconia make it ideal for dental restorations. While initially used for crowns and bridges, the first zirconia dental implant system was developed in 1987, and the technology continues to evolve. Zeramex® implants, which are used within All-On-More™ concept and protocol by Dr. Jack T. Krauser, are the first two-piece design system, which allows for greater flexibility.
Why People Travel to Us for Zirconia Dental Implants
Dr. Krauser is passionate about the benefits of ceramic dental implants.
Chief among the benefits of non-metal dental implants is that they look completely natural. The treated tooth and gum tissue above it do not have a gray cast. Even if the gums recede later in life, there is no dark line at the margin. They are often perfect for a single tooth replacement as well.
