In a recent post, we talked a little about what it means to be a holistic dentist. We mentioned that holistic dentistry is focused on total wellbeing, not just the condition of your teeth and gums. That means that at Dr. DiGiallorzeno’s Collegeville and Williamsport dental offices, you’ll find that we have a special love for homeopathic therapies and good nutrition. But there’s one other thing that’s important to us too—dental implants, and specifically, metal-free dental implants.
Of course, there is an aesthetic reason for using metal-free dental implants, but there are also health benefits to consider. Metal-free dental implants retain less plaque and calculus than titanium implants do, resulting in better gum health. What’s more, with metal-free dental implants we can help patients who are sensitive to titanium, ensuring that more of our patients receive the kind of care they need.
But speaking broadly, there are other benefits that come with dental implants, whether they’re metal-free or not. One of those benefits is that dental implants can help you preserve the rest of your natural smile. Missing tooth roots can put the rest of your smile in a vulnerable position, but with a prosthetic root, you can ensure that your surrounding teeth stay strong. As a result, you can finally enjoy nutritious foods you had to avoid beforehand, improving your diet and your overall wellbeing.
These are just a few of the benefits that come with dental implants, though. To learn more, don’t hesitate to call Dr. DiGiallorenzo’s Collegeville or Williamsport dental office today. During a consultation visit, we can tell you if you’re a candidate for dental implants, in addition to addressing all your questions or concerns about the restoration process.
