Surgical Procedures & Ceramic Implants
Many patients elect to extract their teeth which may be non-salvageable. Teeth extractions, or metal free implants, are one of the surgical procedures offered at Prime integrative Dentistry. What sets us apart from the rest is our emphasis on healing.
We have a healing protocol in place following surgery, which will help you to recover painlessly while providing the body it’s building blocks to form new bone and tissues at the site of surgery.
Platelet rich fibrin (PRF)
Human blood has leucocytes and growth factors which when used in a concentrated fashion will aid in healing surgical site. We use PRF technology which has been long used in the orthopedics to aid in wound healing and bone and soft tissue growth. Patient’s own blood is collected and spun in a centrifuge and the highly concentrated plasma and fibrin can be used at dental surgical sites, this exponentially boosts healing at the wound site.
The superior alternative to traditional, metal dental implants, are the newer, FDA approved, durable, beautiful, biocompatible, biomimetic ceramic, metal free zirconia dental implants otherwise known as ceramic dental implants.
Zirconia dental implants were introduced into dental implantology as an alternative to titanium implants. While metal dental implants made of titanium and titanium alloys have been widely used among traditional dentists, they posed a number of disadvantages such as potential immunologic (allergic) and esthetic (cosmetic) compromises.
Zirconia is an optimal dental implant material because of its tooth-like color, mechanical properties, biocompatibility within the body, and low plaque affinity. Periodontal health is far more superior when compared to Titanium implants; yielding better esthetics and material of choice in high esthetic zone.
We practice metal free dentistry as metals are associated with Oral-electro Galvanism also commonly known as Battery mouth.
