Holistic Dentistry And The Use Of Non-Metallic Dental Implants

The mouth is the gateway to every organ in the body and is interconnected to overall health. This makes oral health of primary importance.

As a holistic dentist, my focus is on helping my patients achieve and maintain exceptional oral health. Through the use of biocompatible, non-toxic restorative materials, I help my patients eliminate infections and achieve optimal oral health as well as restore healthy structural relationships between the jaw, head and neck.

A major component of my practice is dental implantology. Tooth loss occurs for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it is due to injuries, other times to a history of periodontal and other diseases. Implants are integral to the overall health of the mouth. To that end I use non-metallic ceramic dental implants made by Z-Systems.

Some people have allergic reactions to metals and with non-metallic implants, any allergic reaction is avoided, while the end result is absolutely beautiful. Z-Systems manufactures its unique Zirkolith® implants, which allow for extremely low adhesion of bacterial plaque. As you may know, plaque is the main cause of gum disease and one of the main reasons for tooth loss. Untreated periodontitis and also increase the risks during pregnancy as well as the risk of heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.

The Zirkolith implants I use in my practice can be ground like natural teeth without problems and do not require complex accessories. Metal conducts electricity and can cause uncomfortable vibrations in the jaw. However, through the use of non-metallic Z-System implants complete metal-free restoration of your smile and the health of your mouth can be achieved.
