Material Matters: Metal-Free Dental Implants [BLOG]

Restorative Dentistry

We hate to say we told you so, but…

We told you so! Just as we suspected, more and more research on modern implantology is showing a trend toward using materials that offer greater biocompatibility so patients can choose what’s best for them.

Dr. DiGiallorenzo saw this need years ago and didn’t hesitate to invest in the exploration, training, and technology so he and our team could give our tooth loss patients better care and more natural solutions!

At The LANAP & Implant Center, our entire approach to treating your dental problems centers on integration of science and nature. This way, we can attack the threats to your oral health from all sides using modern methods, as well as homeopathic solutions that will enhance your body’s own healing mechanisms.

We believe that your treatment plan is more than just a tool or a procedure. It’s a full on crusade from multiple angles that incorporates various strategies for optimized success. Thanks to our team of specialists who all bring diversified training to our practice, you’re the one who wins!

What You Gain From Metal-Free Dental Implants

Being able to offer a metal-free alternative for dental implant patients, you get a restored smile without having to decide between a fulfilling life after tooth loss or tolerating an implant strategy that you’re not comfortable with.

*Their Look*

Studies show that patients who choose zirconium implants see better aesthetic results. This is thanks to the color of metal-free material and how it blends more seamlessly with your smile. Titanium can, in some cases, show through a crown more easily because of its darker color.

*Their Kindness To Your Body*

Not to take anything away from titanium implants, because they’re actually the standard in implant tooth replacement and are perfectly safe, but metal-free materials are preferred for patients who want to maintain holistic principles in their medical and dental care.

Zirconium is a strong, hypoallergenic ceramic material that’s compatible with your body and helps promote better healing. The metal-free route can also be a more advantageous choice if you have issues or concerns about your immune system’s response to an implant placement procedure.

The holistic, metal-free dental implant option is a trend that continues to grow in popularity with each year, so we’ll keep hearing more about the supply having to quickly catch up with demand, as patients seek more natural options.

But, in our Collegeville and Williamsport dental offices, we ran that race a long time ago and have been offering patients metal-free dental implants ever since!
