About Metal Free Dental Implants
When patients are faced with missing teeth, dental implants are often their best option. Dental implants are a permanent, beautiful solution for lost teeth. As the gold standard in the field of tooth prosthetics, ceramic and metal-free dental implants are more similar in nature to your natural tooth and root system than any previous form of treatment.
What that means for you is a result that feels, acts and looks like a real tooth.
A Dental Implant is a procedure where an artificial tooth root is placed in the jawbone that will hold a replacement tooth or bridge. It is primarily used in the treatment of the loss of a tooth or teeth due to disease, impact or any other reason. Dr. Matian uses only metal free dental implants in Los Angeles at his state-of-the-art office. He uses Ceraroot zirconia dental implants.
Loss of teeth can ruin more than your image
When you lose a tooth or teeth it can be damaging to your image. Many feel self-conscious about their smile after the loss of teeth, especially when it’s a prominent one. When a tooth gets dislodged from trauma or lack of proper care, it can adversely affect your appearance. You find yourself smiling less, covering your mouth more, staying in and avoiding social activities.
That’s just the aesthetic side of tooth loss. The health repercussions are alarmingly significant. When you lose a tooth or teeth, there is a plethora of complications that could follow. The surrounding teeth around the missing space, in an attempt to fill the gap, start to spread into the space, which affects your bite. Bacteria, bone decay, infection, disintegration of the jaw bone, and other potential complications have also been proven to stem from tooth loss.
While a fixed bridge may help with the aesthetic aspect of tooth loss, there is still a host of health-related complications that can arise. In fact, about a third of patients that receive the fixed partial denture encounter problems severe enough that revision surgery becomes necessary.
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants emulate the natural infrastructure of a tooth. Strong as the real thing, a properly installed dental implant can last the remainder of your life, giving you the comfort of a natural bite and the beauty of a flawless smile. In fact, most won’t even be able to tell that you got dental implant surgery when done correctly.
One of the hidden benefits of dental implants is the constant stress it gives the bones around your teeth. The bones that hold the teeth need this stress and pressure in order to regenerate itself. Without this stress, the bone deteriorates, potentially causing multiple complications.
With the advancement of dental implant technology, dental implant surgery has advanced from the titanium implant of the past to the state-of-the-art all-ceramic Zirconia implant of today.

The level of discomfort you will feel while receiving this procedure is commonly described as relatively mild compared to the implant procedure of yesteryear. With the state-of-the-art facility and the expert hand of Dr. Matian, Dental Implant surgery only takes about an hour to place a single implant.
While dental implants do not decay, they do need to be kept clean and plaque-free just like natural teeth. Proper brushing and flossing is therefore necessary, as well as routine cleanings from the Bio Dental oral hygienists.
