Top 4 Reasons to Choose Dental Implants

Improved Quality of Life. Dental implants will make your smile look like new again so you can feel confident in your ability to eat, laugh, and live without worrying about your dentures or missing teeth.
Secure Comfort. Dental Implants are surgically placed in the jaw bone where they integrate with the bone. You will never have to worry about messy denture pastes or creams again! Your implants won't move or slip so you can live a normal life!
Preserve Facial Shape and Jawbone Integrity. Bone loss in the jaw occurs almost immediately after loosing a tooth. Without the root to stimulate it, the jawbone will eventually dissolve to a point where the cheeks and lips are no longer supported. This can cause an aged, shrunken appearance. Implants preserve bone and help maintain facial integrity.
Healthy Teeth Are Unaffected. Bridges require the grinding down of health adjacent teeth and can often be uncomfortable to wear. Dental implants will not affect healthy teeth and can actually help prevent further tooth loss due to jaw bone deterioration.

Dental Implants for Patients With Metal Allergies

The topic of metal allergies in dentistry has garnered a great deal of interest. While most of the attention has been focused upon the use of mercury in amalgam fillings, it is important to note that metal allergies can extend to base metals, such as zinc, copper, nickel, or lead. These base metals can be utilized to make up the alloy, or combination of metals, for your dental implant. Dr. Al-Zubi and Dr. Azzam utilize dental implants to replace adult teeth and can help you determine if you have a metal allergy when considering this replacement option.

Symptoms of a Metal Allergy

You can develop an allergy to any material at any point during your lifetime, and roughly ten percent of the population will. Allergies can occur suddenly and without warning, not only from restorative dental techniques but from joint replacements or even body piercings. Certain symptoms are associated with metal allergies and can range from a simple rash to autoimmune disorders like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Allergy sufferers may experience fatigue, fever, or inflammation of the oral tissue.

Common Implant Materials and Alternatives

Implants are generally comprised of a titanium alloy which is compatible with the body and has the ability to fuse with bone. The strength of this bond combined with the predictability of osseointegration makes this the preferred metal in dental implants for Cincinnati, OH and around the globe. Dr. Al-Zubi and Dr. Azzam utilize titanium to successfully replace adult teeth for the majority of his patients. However, a small subset of patients may have a metal allergy which requires the use of an alternate material, such as zirconium. Zirconium is a material used in a ceramic implant to replace adult teeth that is entirely free of metal and still provides excellent stability.
