Zirconia Dental Implants

Thanks to advances in care, candidates for dental implants today can receive either a titanium metal implant or a zirconia (zirconium oxide) dental implant. While titanium implants remain the most widely used type and have a strong track record for success, the latest generations of zirconia implants offer an equally effective, metal-free, and more cosmetic alternative.  

Zirconia dental implants offer several benefits, including:

  • They provide a metal-free and biologically safe alternative to titanium implants.
  • Optimal aesthetics. The white ceramic-like material does not show through any thin areas of overlying bone and gums.
  • Pose a lower risk of gum inflammation and less susceptible to the buildup of plaque and debris
  • Have surface characteristics that support excellent osseointegration, or fusion with the surrounding bone, for improved retention and stability

Mini Implants

Mini implants behave just like a full-sized dental implant, acting as an artificial tooth root to support a customized dental restoration or prosthesis.

Just like its larger cohort, a mini implant is made of biocompatible materials and provides maximum stability for your restoration. However, because mini implants are much smaller than traditional implants, they can better accommodate the specific requirements of certain smiles and treatment considerations.

Mini implants offer an option for patients who have lost significant bone tissue or for medical reasons are not candidates for a bone grafting procedure. They also provide additional stability and support for dentures to prevent slippage and give patients the confidence their dentures will not dislodge when smiling, speaking, or eating.

Periocare, the office of Braden C. Seamons, DDS is the most technologically advanced periodontal practice in Hawaii. Our innovative approach includes state of the art Laser Surgery, an implant system with unequalled biologic compatibility and 21st century 3D Imaging.
