Full Mouth Reconstruction: Functional, Biocompatible, and Beautiful-looking Full Mouth All on 6 Ceramic Implants

Despite the advanced dental technology, tooth loss is still common in America. Luckily, you can enjoy a nearly perfect replica of your natural smile with non-metal ceramic dental implants from Virginia Biological Dentistry

Do you have extensive tooth loss in Glen Allen, Virginia? Instead of titanium-based implants, Dr. Olivia Hart and her team use Full Mouth All on 6 ceramic dental implants to restore your oral function and aesthetics. Non-metal restorations aren’t only beautiful looking, but they are biocompatible, minimizing allergic reactions.

Our Full Mouth All on 6 Ceramic Implants in a nutshell

Traditional implants involve surgically inserting a titanium post in the jawbone. While titanium fixtures are effective, they are metallic, which can pose safety and aesthetic issues to some patients. Our office emphasizes metal-free restorations. So, instead of titanium, our dental implants use zirconium dioxide —a bio-inert ceramic material that doesn’t react with the body.
When you have lost several teeth, Dr. Hart won’t replace every lost tooth with a ceramic implant. Using Full Mouth All on 6 Ceramic implants, we can replace an entire arch of missing teeth with just four ceramic implants strategically placed in the mouth.

Typically, we’ll place two zirconia implants each at the front and rear to support a natural-looking ceramic bridge. Unlike conventional or removable restorations, full-arch ceramic dental implants are secure and remain in place when eating or smiling.

Benefits of zirconia implants

Our office uses zirconia implants because of their biological, mechanical, and optical properties. The following are the many benefits of zirconia implants:

  • Biocompatibility: Zirconia is well-tolerated by the body and has a low risk of causing allergic reactions or inflammation, making it suitable for individuals with metal allergies, immune disorders, or sensitivities
  • Aesthetics: Zirconia implants are often chosen for their tooth-like color and translucency, which can contribute to a more natural appearance, unlike silver-colored titanium posts that can show through the gums in some patients
  • Corrosion-resistant: Zirconia implants are chemically unreactive and don’t corrode, unlike metal implants. This provides long-term stability and reduces the risk of inflammation and other corrosion-related complications
  • Thermal insulation: Zirconia has a lower thermal conductivity compared to metal implants. This prevents the transmission of hot or cold sensations from the implant to the surrounding tissues, reducing the potential for discomfort
