Dental Implants San Ramon CA
If you are in need of dental implants in San Ramon you will be happy to know that they have come a long way. Originally, in the 1980’s, dental implants were made solely out of a titanium material. Now, however, dental implant technology has highly advanced and a new, ceramic material is being used instead.
Ceramic materials are better than the titanium material implants because they are more tissue friendly. Since they are fused to your jaw bone, it is better to have a non-metal material to avoid corrosion. In 2011, the FDA approved the one-piece Ceraroot implant which is made completely out of ceramic material. This is beneficial to our patients because the new dental implants are white and have no prosthetic connections.
The material for old dental implants and other dental products was mainly metal. These metals were used because of their durability. Now, however, he ceramic material used is more advanced and can last just as long, maybe even longer!
Dental implants are great for people with missing teeth. They are a permanent correction and have a natural look and feel, similar to that of a natural tooth. They can help to restore functionality and to make a person’s teeth look more aesthetically pleasing.
To find out if you are a candidate for dental implants in San Ramon, you should visit your dentist.
