Full Zirconia Dental Implants
Welcome to Obeid Dental, the home of the zirconia ceramic implant. My name is Dr. Obeid. I’m a board-certified prosthodontist and expert on the zirconia ceramic implant. The first question that people ask, what are zirconia implants? Well, they are similar to regular conventional implants. They are teeth replacement therapy. They are completely made out of zirconia and they are tooth-like in color. And the whole idea is to replace missing teeth. All the components of the zirconia implants are made of porcelain. So when you have the final prosthesis, the final outcome is much nicer than the conventional porcelain fused to metal and the metal implant.
Now people come in and they want to have zirconia implants. Well, the first thing we do is take a look. We do a clinical examination and a clinical evaluation and we’ll determine if the patient is a candidate for an implant. That means do they have the bone volume, bone height, bone width, and then we go ahead and proceed to place the implants. The first phase is the surgical phase. That is similar to conventional implants. You place the implant inside the bone. You’ll let the implant heal for a time of two or three months, and then you get back and you start the restorative phase and you place the abutment and you put the final crown if you are replacing one tooth or bridge if you’re replacing multiple teeth.
The treatment starts to finish will take anywhere from three to four months, depending on the healing and the amount of bone or bone graft that is needed. If you want to find out that zirconia implant is the right treatment for you, please contact us and set up a complimentary consultation. Thank you.
