For individuals wondering which implant option may be right for them, Dr. Soleymani offers a few facts about the implants for patients to consider.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 29, 2015
For more than a decade, Los Angeles periodontist Dr. Peiman Soleymani has offered high-quality periodontal and dental services to his patients at the Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center, including vital dental implants using predominately titanium implants and abutments. Now, Dr. Soleymani is happy to announce that patients who want an equally reliable, metal-free option can opt for Zirconia implants. For individuals wondering which implant option may be right for them, Dr. Soleymani offers a few facts about the implants for patients to consider:
- Both Are Osseointegratable – Dr. Soleymani explains that osseointegratable is a big word that simply means that a material is able to fuse with bone when pressed up against it. He explains that this is necessary feature of any dental implants, which must allow the bone to grow against the implant to ensure that it is always rooted firmly in place. Dr. Soleymani explains that titanium was found to osseointegrate with bone decades ago, and has since been one of the most popular options for Los Angeles dental implants. Now, dentists and surgeons are able to make implants using zirconia, for those that want a non-metal option.
- Metal vs. Non-Metal – The primary reason why patients sometimes request a non-metal option is because they may have an allergy to titanium. Dr. Soleymani explains that, while titanium allergies are incredibly rare, zirconia is still a good option for those who do have the rare allergy, are allergic to another metal and feel more comfortable with non-metal implants, or who are concerned with titanium corrosion. Dr. Soleymani explains that titanium has an extraordinary resistance to corrosion, so this is not a concern that patients need to worry about. Yet, he explains that because zirconia is completely non-metal, there is no chance of corrosion so this concern, however small, can be eliminated.
In addition to dental implants, Dr. Peiman Soleymani and the rest of his team at the Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center also provide exceptional periodontal care to ensure optimal gum health.
