Apple Valley, MN–September 30, 2019–Dakota Dental now offers patients in Apple Valley, Minnesota, zirconia “metal-free” dental implants. Zirconia dental implants are biocompatible, allowing them to integrate naturally with a patient’s bone and gums. This type of dental implant option is FDA-approved, non-toxic, safe, and corrosion resistant, making it a desirable option for patients and dentists compared to traditional titanium implants.
Zirconia implants may also decrease the chances of allergies, irritation, and sensitivity that is common with other dental implant materials. And because they are “metal-free” and made from white ceramic, they offer patients the appearance of a normal healthy tooth as opposed to the metal-tint that can be seen through the patient’s gumline.
The procedure to install zirconia implants takes a single visit to Dakota Dental, following the extraction of the missing or broken tooth. Zirconia dental implants are designed as a single piece, as opposed to titanium implants, which consist of two separate pieces. This advanced feature helps reduce the chances of bacteria growth that may develop between the two pieces, during or after the patient’s in-house dental procedure.
Patients missing one or more teeth or individuals who have recently experienced a broken tooth are encouraged to reach out to Dakota Dental to avoid any serious oral health issues that may develop, including tooth migration, bone loss, and the onset of gum disease.
