Single Tooth Implants
Holistic Single Tooth Implants in New Jersey
If you are missing a tooth and need a tooth replacement, you should explore dental implants. Dental implants replace missing teeth and successfully restore function and appearance, while other options require altering natural, healthy teeth. Dental implants only focus on the vacated socket, leaving all other teeth untouched.
At Holistic Dental Center, we are becoming more popular for our holistic dental approach to single-tooth implants. These metal-free dental implants are an effective way to restore your smile without all of the hassles of traditional dental implants.
What is holistic dentistry?
Holistic dentists are general dentists that focus on treating the root cause of disease, not just treating the symptoms of disease. They typically specialize in preventing dental issues such as gum disease and cavities. However, instead of prescribing traditional medicines, they offer natural treatments and care. As holistic dentists, we combine conventional general dentistry techniques with alternative medicines.
The holistic method of dentistry sees oral health problems as linked to the overall health of your body. Holistic dentists use conventional dental methods to restore patients’ teeth and smiles. The materials used are non-toxic and safe for the body. In addition, we believe deeply in holistic medicine and supportive integrative therapies that enhance patient care by benefiting oral and whole body health
Single Tooth Dental Implant
Many patients are concerned about implant costs, but they are the most cost-effective solution to missing teeth. A single tooth implant is a permanent solution, unlike dentures and partials that wear down over time and will likely need to be replaced. Your new teeth will also be custom colored to match your natural gums and shaded to the brightness you desire.
A traditional single tooth implant is a titanium implant. The dentist will put a titanium rod that is surgically implanted into the jawbone to replace a single missing tooth. The implant could also provide a solid foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture.
Zirconia dental implants are a holistic and hypoallergenic alternative to traditional dental implants. In other words, they are completely metal-free dental implants. Zirconia dental implants have comparable structures to titanium dental implants, but these ceramic implant colors match the surrounding healthy teeth.
Zirconia creates a natural implant that your mouth absorbs and merges with your jawbone in the same way traditional dental implants do.
Zirconia implants are as solid and durable as traditional titanium implants. If you have an excellent dental care routine that includes brushing and flossing, the implant can last a lifetime.
After a patient’s appointment for their comprehensive exam, we will schedule the surgery. On the day of surgery the process of placing an implant takes about two hours. Once the implant is in place, it will take several weeks to fuse with the jawbone. During this time, the patient must follow strict oral hygiene guidelines to ensure the implant remains healthy.
The holistic approach is to make sure the patient is a candidate for the biocompatible implant by ensuring the patient is healthy and there is viable bone density. We use zirconia metal-free dental implants. The non-corrosive ceramic zirconia are hypoallergenic, durable and fuse to jaw bone safely.
When you have a dental procedure done, it is expected that the patient’s appearance will improve. This often isn’t the case with metal implants. Those with thin gums and people who are prone to gum recession often end up with metal showing through their gums, making them appear gray and unhealthy.
What are the benefits of holistic dental tooth implants?
There are many benefits to choosing a holistic zirconia dental tooth implant over a traditional metal implant. Some factors include:
- Function and feel like natural teeth
- Quicker healing times
- Extremely durable
- Resistant to corrosion
- Less plaque buildup on ceramic
- No gray color at the gum line due to white zirconia
- Less invasive than traditional dental implants
- Cause less damage to the jaw bone and surrounding tissues
- Easier to clean and maintain
- Little to no inflammation and bleeding
Another great benefit is that zirconia implants look and feel like your natural teeth. Non-metal implants are biocompatible and are not harmful to your surrounding gum tissue, teeth, and whole-body health. These ceramic implants can be used as a long-lasting replacement for missing teeth.
