When people have missing teeth due to gum disease or oral trauma, then they will want to replace those missing teeth with a reliable and long-lasting tooth replacement solution. The good news is people can replace their missing teeth with zirconium dental implants in Omaha, NE. Zirconia dental implants are a biocompatible alternative to titanium dental implants. With zirconia dental implants, patients can replace one or more missing teeth.
What Is A Zirconium Dental Implant In Omaha, NE?
As the name implies, zirconia dental implants are made from the material zirconium. Zirconium is translucent and the color white, mimicking the look of a natural tooth. It is also super durable, meaning they can last longer than people’s natural teeth.
Zirconium dental implants are a metal free alternative to traditional dental implants that are composed of three main parts. The three main parts of a zirconium dental implant are the dental implant post, the abutment, and the prosthesis or crown. When a dental implant post is securely placed in a patient’s jawbone, it fuses with it in a natural process called osseointegration.
Once the zirconium dental implant is in place, it stimulates the jawbone like a natural tooth does. This stimulation keeps the jawbone healthy and strong. When people replace their missing teeth with a zirconium dental implant, they get a natural looking new smile they can eat their favorite foods with and be able to speak comfortably with.
How Do I Get My Zirconium Dental Implants Placed?
To get the absolute best results with zirconium dental implants, it’s imperative for people to seek the expertise of a skilled oral surgeon with extensive training, a caring environment, and advanced technology. From start to finish, the most modern technology is used to ensure maximum precision in zirconium dental implant placements.
When people first come in to be examined for their zirconium dental implant procedure, the Cone Beam CT scan and intraoral scanner is used. Patients can discuss and go over their oral wants and needs with the oral surgeon so they can plan their personalized zirconium dental implant procedure.
After sedation dentistry is administered and additional procedures, like tooth extractions, are performed so patients have a successful zirconium dental implant surgery, the surgical placement of the zirconium dental implants can begin.
When the oral surgeon creates the patients dental implant guide, their zirconium dental implants can be accurately and precisely placed, removing any guesswork from the surgical procedure. Following the strategic placement of the zirconium dental implants, the patient can go to a trusted dentist to get their temporary prosthesis placed so they have a new smile the same day as their surgery while they wait for their final prosthesis to be created.
Once the final prosthesis is ready, placed, and cemented, then the patient will have a new smile they can eat, speak, and smile comfortably with.
