Metal-Free Dental Implants

Practically identical to natural teeth in look, feel, and function, dental implants are the ideal choice for replacing missing teeth.

How Dental Implants Work

While partial and full dentures are a fine enough option for replacing missing teeth, implants offer a permanent solution. An implant is effectively an artificial tooth root that we surgically place in your jaw. Over time, implants integrate with the bone, providing excellent stability for the restorations we place on top.

Implants can support crowns, bridges, or even complete dentures. And because they integrate with your jawbone, you can avoid the kind of bone loss that denture-wearers experience.

The Benefits of 100% Ceramic Dental Implants

All of the implants we place at Pride Dental are 100% ceramic (zirconia), which is broadly biocompatible. There’s no risk of corrosion as there is with the metal implants typically used in dentistry today, which can release metal into the body. The titanium alloys that are typically used in dentistry today can contain toxic metals such as nickel and aluminum.  

Ceramic dental implants look better, too. If you have thin or receding gums, over time, the dull gray of a titanium would show through, creating a dark shadow. This is simply a non-issue with zirconia, which is much closer to natural tooth color. 

Durable, biocompatible, and beautiful, the ceramic option makes for happy – and healthy – patients.
