Research continues to show that the health of one’s mouth is directly linked to one’s overall health. Tooth loss and harmful metal materials used in many dental practices are huge causes of major health problems and should be addressed with immediacy. In fact, tooth loss is linked with depression, anxiety, speech issues, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and even certain cancers. Fortunately, dental implants can replace teeth and give patients a new healthy and natural smile.
In the past, dental implants were only made of metal materials like titanium, which can cause issues like metal allergies, metal corrosion, tissue irritation and can even negatively impact major systems in the body. Fortunately, as dentistry has advanced, so have implant materials. Patients now have the ideal option for strong, permanent and aesthetic ceramic dental implants made from zirconia.
