Dentistry has seen a number of advancements throughout the years. Thankfully, there are now more tooth replacement options than ever to help people restore their smile to full function and beauty. In the past, patients just had to live with missing teeth or use ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures. But now, there are options like dental bridges, dental implants, implant-supported bridges, and implant-supported dentures to help patients get back to a smile that looks and feels natural. Today, we want to highlight one modern solution we offer here at Atlantic Dental Partners: ZircTeeth. Here’s the scoop:
Basics of ZircTeeth
ZircTeeth is an exciting new tooth-replacement option made of zirconia that combines a dental bridge and dental implants. While conventional dental bridges stay in place with the help of dental crowns on top of the teeth on either side of the artificial tooth, a ZircTeeth bridge is secured with dental implants. You can use ZircTeeth to replace multiple teeth or even all of the teeth in your upper or lower jaw.
Since the dental implants are placed into your gums, ZircTeeth is considered a permanent tooth-replacement option. For you, that means no worrying about whether your artificial teeth are going to unexpectedly move around or fall out when you’re chewing or talking. It also means that you won’t have to worry about the same kind of additional maintenance that comes with removable dentures. With proper care, ZircTeeth are meant to last you a lifetime!
Candidates for ZircTeeth
As the ZircTeeth procedure involves placing dental implants into your gums, it’s very important that you have healthy gums in order to be considered a candidate. You should also have a sufficient amount of bone in your jaw to support those implants! To see if you’re a good candidate for ZircTeeth, visit our expert team so we can perform an exam and take dental X-rays.
