Holistic Dentistry

Holistic dentistry, also known as alternative dentistry, focuses on the use of natural crowns, posts, and abutments when performing oral surgery and placing dental implants. Many oral surgeons utilize metal or porcelain products during dental surgery. However, this may result in an unnatural, grayish color on the gum line which can take away from your smile. Natural materials, such as zirconia, can be used to create metal-free dental implants, crowns, and bridges that reflect your natural tooth color and fit in with your smile.
Holistic dentistry approaches, including the use of zirconia implants, are a natural alternative to metal dental implants, as metal-based materials have the potential to trigger allergic reactions in patients. Titanium-based implants are also susceptible to corroding over time when repeatedly exposed to certain ingredients in toothpaste or mouthwash. Metal implants may also contain traces of mercury, which is harmful to ingest. Opting for mercury-free dental implants can reduce such risks while providing natural-looking results.

Metal Free Dental Implants (Mercury Free Dental Implants)

Non-metal dental implants are biocompatible, meaning that they are not harmful to your surrounding gum tissue and tooth structure. These mercury free implants can be used as a long-lasting replacement for missing teeth. Holistic implants look and feel like your natural teeth.
