Why choose dental implants?
For more than a century, the standard of care for tooth replacement has been restorations that sit on top of the gums. Bridges and dentures are still appropriate in some cases. Dental implants, however, provide greater stability, which contributes to improved comfort, chewing function, and self-confidence.
An implant is a tiny post inserted into the jawbone, using 3D imaging for precision.
As bone fuses with the post in the following months, integration is achieved, mimicking a natural tooth root. You are able to chew, speak, laugh, and smile without apprehension. The implant also stimulates strong bone density in the jaw for a fuller, more youthful facial appearance.
Titanium vs. zirconia
Traditionally, dental implants have been fabricated from a titanium alloy. While this remains an option, many people prefer metal-free restorations. For those patients, or for individuals with metal allergies, Dr. Lipovetskiy offers biocompatible zirconium implants. Non-metal implants are also a good choice for patients who have existing metal restorations, to avoid reactive corrosion. Zirconia implants are aesthetically pleasing,
have a 98 percent success rate, and may integrate with bone tissue faster due to the porosity of the material.
