Zirconia Dental Implants

The past few decades have brought dentistry a wealth of innovation. One example is dental implants. This tooth replacement treatment is viewed by many dentists and patients alike as the premier option for total restoration.

The implant difference

Implants are considered superior to conventional tooth replacement with removable dentures, and even fixed bridges, due to their design. An implant is a tiny cylindrical post that is surgically positioned in healthy jawbone. As such, the implant itself is more a root replacement than a tooth replacement.

There are several benefits to implant tooth replacement.
  • When replacing a single tooth, or just a few teeth, an implant eliminates the need to restructure two healthy teeth, as is necessary with a dental bridge.
  • Implants, situated within bone tissue, provide the necessary stimulation to keep the jawbone strong and intact. Replacements that sit on top of the gums cannot provide this stimulation, and bone tissue gradually deteriorates. This resorption leads to an aged, sunken-in appearance.
  • Implants are accepted by bone tissue in a process called osseointegration, which leads to the permanent stabilization of a dental crown, bridge, or denture appliance. This structure mimics that of natural teeth, which are tethered to the jawbone via the roots, and allows patients to enjoy their favorite foods without worry.
  • Dentures stabilized by dental implants are more comfortable, and allow you full confidence in interacting with others. Dentures no longer have to rub against gum tissue, or feel unstable when speaking or eating!

Zirconia as an ideal implant material

Many periodontists use titanium implants. At Four Seasons Dental Spa, we treat patients with all implants. Zirconia implants have been used extensively in Europe for more than twenty years, and they are now catching on in the States. These ceramic implants are ideal for our holistic dental practice, as they contain no metal, while still supplying the long-lasting function and beauty intended with this treatment. Compared to titanium metal implants, our zirconia implants also ensure a better aesthetic appearance, especially on front teeth. Where titanium may leave a dark line at the gums, zirconia’s white hue creates the ideal foundation for a natural appearance.

Smile restoration takes only a few visits, and most patients can leave with a temporary tooth on the same visit.

The implant process takes place in our comfortable Las Vegas dental spa, under the care of an experienced periodontist. Our patients receive a comprehensive consultation with our implant dentist, who will discuss their options, and answer any questions regarding treatment. In order to determine candidacy, x-rays are taken and a dental examination is performed to assess bone density. Most patients find that they are able to receive dental implants without complication.

Dental implants are strategically placed as needed for optimal function, and dependent on the patient’s individual needs. Your dentist will administer local anesthetic before your procedure, so you will feel no discomfort. Four Seasons Dental Spa also offers sedation dental services for those who prefer to rest comfortably throughout treatment, or who feel quite anxious. We are happy to discuss available options with you before your surgery.

Following the insertion of zirconia implants in our Las Vegas office, the gums may be slightly swollen and sore. The effects of surgery typically last only a few days, and are manageable with either over the counter or prescription pain medication. We recommend patients prepare for recovery by stocking up on softer foods such as soup and yogurt. Every person is different, and dense foods can be added into the diet as tolerated.

The fusion between bone tissue and implants takes up to six months, after which patients are fitted with their permanent tooth replacement, which may be a crown, a bridge, or a denture appliance.

Dental implant treatment is very flexible, providing each person with the degree of function he or she needs for smile restoration. Our implant specialist has years of experience providing successful tooth replacement treatment.
