Do You Have Missing Teeth?

The Holistic Choice

Zirconia implants are the preferred tooth replacement over partial dentures and fixed bridges because they help preserve tooth structure. Bridges require the sacrifice of healthy enamel (outer, protective tooth layer) in order to support the fake, missing tooth (hyperlink to bridge discussion). Removable partial dentures can be inconvenient because they need to be taken in and out of the mouth.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

If you have missing teeth in Bountiful, UT, dental implants from Dr. Judson Wall may be the right choice for you for the following reasons:

  • Permanent missing tooth replacement
  • Restore ability to eat and speak properly
  • Eliminate embarrassing gaps
  • Preserve bone
  • Eliminate removable appliances

The majority of adults in the United States have lost at least one tooth due to decay, gum disease, trauma, or failed root canal therapy. Unless these teeth are restored with implants, there is a strong likelihood that the supporting bone will continue to deteriorate. For this reason, Dr. Wall highly recommends replacing missing teeth with zirconia dental implants. Zirconia implants are made of zirconium oxide, a type of ceramic. Many dentists think zirconia implants are weak and brittle, when in fact the opposite is true: zirconia implants are stronger than their titanium implant counterparts. Placed correctly, zirconia implants stimulate jaw bone hardening (Wolff’s law). Zirconia dental implants have a high success rate, comparable to that of titanium.Dr. Wall prefers the Zirkolith system available from Z-systems (hyperlink to their website) due to it’s ability to be prepared for a crown like a tooth. Z-systems is a Swiss implant company that produces naturally white, metal-free dental implants. The gum tissue response to zirconia implants is remarkably good.

Dental Implants for Missing Teeth

The majority of adults who have reached middle age have lost at least one tooth to tooth decay, gum disease, or an injury. Some of these adults end up losing all of their teeth by the time they reach their mid-70s. Undergoing a tooth replacement procedure is necessary for restoring the smile and also reducing the risk of additional tooth or bone loss. While dentures and fixed bridges offer some options for replacing missing teeth, they are not without complications. Removable dentures can cause bone loss and if they do not fit properly, may cause clicking sounds. Bridges typically require grinding down adjacent teeth, which can make these teeth more susceptible to damage. This is why Dr. Wall may recommend dental implants as a permanent tooth replacement procedure.

Dental implants are an effective solution for replacing missing teeth because they are made out of zirconia and porcelain and are fused directly into the jaw bone. When placed properly, they function and look just like your real teeth. They stimulate the jaw bone, and the zirconian composition of the implant post will not wear down or become corroded.

The advantages of Dental Impants are undeniable. They preserve bone structure and last for years. Why wait? Replace your missing teeth and enjoy a new you!

Make the right decision

Titanium is a metal

  • This can lead to allergenic reactions or titanium incompatibilities.
  • This can lead to discomfort as it conducts electrical energy.
  • In case of receding gums or thin bone, the dark gray intrinsic color of titanium may shimmer through and be unsightly.

Choose an implant made from high performance ceramics

  • Metal-free: Excellent soft tissue reaction/behavior
  • Biocompatible: Optimally tolerated by the body, very good regeneration of the gums.
  • Esthetic: White ceramic for a brilliant smile
  • Safe: Worldwide experience from over 15 years of experience.

Zrikolith - the right choice

Zirkolith is distinguished by our own manufacturing process and offers you special advantages compared with other ceramics used

  • Zirkolith demonstrates extremely low adhesion of bacterial plaque, the main cause of gum diseases such as periodontitis. Untreated periodontitis can increase the risk of many organic diseases, such as diabetes, risks during pregnancy, osteoporosis or cardiovascular disease.
  • Our implants can be ground like natural teeth without problems and do not require complex accessories. This makes your dentist's work safe and easy - and guarantees perfect esthetics.
