Losing tooth can be an awful blow to both your self-confidence and your overall wellbeing. Many patients struggle with depression after the event, finding it hard to even get out of bed in the morning, much less face their peers and have to deal with the constant embarrassment of unsightly gaps in the smile. Worse, missing teeth can lead to enhanced risks of periodontal disease, jawbone deterioration, and even additional tooth loss. Over the years, dental implants have become the leading solution for tooth replacement due to their durability and beauty – but some patients are understandably hesitant to have a foreign, metal piece placed in their body. Dr. David DiGiallorenzo wants to support his patient’s total health, not just their oral – that’s why he’s worked tirelessly to help perfect metal-free zirconium dental implants for patients in the Philadelphia area and beyond.
Rebuilding Your Smile and Your Satisfaction, One Tooth at a Time
Over the last two years, Dr. DiGiallorenzo has developed and utilized two generations of zirconium dental implant designs; he even travelled to Switzerland in the summer of 2012 to view an even better design for the U.S. market. Working with zirconium requires the skill and expertise of a specialist if the implant in question is to be successful, and that’s just what you’ll find when you come in to either our Collegeville or Williamsport office. Dr. DiGiallorenzo has more experience and understanding of this complicated procedure than any other dentist in the entire United States.
Metal-free zirconium dental implants have several benefits over traditional implants, including:
- Zirconium interacts well with gum and bone, making it more biocompatible.
- Titanium dental implants can often cause a dark line to form around the gum; zirconium implants produce a more natural color, saving you potential embarrassment.
- Zirconium implants are a much more holistic option and a better choice for people interested in treatments that support total health.
- Zirconium is often favored by periodontists because it discourages the buildup of plaque and tartar in a way that titanium doesn’t, effectively reducing the risk of gum disease.
