Lakewood area dentist offers ceramic dental implants for tooth restoration
At South Lakewood Dental, Dr. Scott Stewart has dedicated his practice to biocompatible and holistic dental care. He understands the importance of overall health as well as oral wellness. He educates patients on the benefits of taking proper care of their smile. When issues such as tooth loss arise, he works closely with his patients to ensure they have access to the best methods of repair, including dental implants.
When one or more teeth are missing, patients have several options for replacement including dentures and dental implants. The most desirable choice for many patients is dental implants. Dental implants in our practice are made of a ceramic called zirconium. This non-metal material eliminates the health issues commonly associated with titanium implants. This material can withstand years in the smile and stimulates the process of osseointegration in the same way as the metal counterparts.
Dental implants are often chosen for the replacement of a single tooth because they look and function like natural teeth. They will last a lifetime if patients take good care of their smiles with brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits. Dr. Scott Stewart and his team give patients the information they need to make an educated decision in regards to whether dental implants are appropriate for them. Patients will also undergo a series of x-rays to ensure the bone structure of the jaw is sufficient for successful placement of the implants. If not, bone grafting should be considered. Alternatives such as dentures may be a better solution. We want our patients to choose restorations that will work with their lifestyle as well as their specific needs.
