Ceramic Dental Implants Coming in September, 2020!

Did you know millions of Americans are missing at least one adult tooth? It’s true!

If you are one of them, don’t worry. Dr. Supriya K Shetty and her team at Integrative Dental Solutions have a big announcement that can bring anyone with missing teeth peace of mind. Help us welcome Dr. Trevor Bybee, a holistic dental implant provider to the team. With extensive experience in the placement of ceramic dental implants, Dr. Bybee will begin to see patients starting in September 2020.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a replacement for a tooth root. Made from ceramic, the screw-like implant is embedded into the jawbone, where it fuses over time for a permanent placement. Once the implant is healed, Dr. Bybee creates a custom tooth or crown that affixes to the implant.

With a dental implant, patients are able to smile, eat, drink, and live their lives just like they do with their natural teeth.

What are the Benefits of Ceramic Dental Implants?

Missing teeth can be difficult both emotionally and physically for patients. While temporary or removable solutions exist, we are excited to offer something brand new to our patients: Ceramic dental implants.

Many dentists that offer dental implants use titanium. While functional, we know many of our patients have allergies to metals and therefore, ceramic is a much safer, more holistic option. Non metal ceramic implants are durable and easily fuse with the jawbone. Patients love ceramic dental implants for their color as well. Unlike metal that can cause a grayish tint to the gums, ceramic does not cause any discoloration, and looks and feels more like a natural tooth.

Other benefits of ceramic implants include:

  • Look and feel like a natural tooth
  • You can eat normally
  • Ceramic is biocompatible and hypoallergenic (unlike some metal implants)
  • Preserves bone and maintains the bite
  • Hygienic – Ceramic does not attract bacteria and plaque

If you are considering a bioceramic dental implant, Dr. Bybee has extensive training in placing ceramic dental implants and would love to provide a stress-free consultation for you today. Contact us today to find out if ceramic dental implants are right for you.
