All Ceramic, Metal-Free Dental Implants
Most dental implants are still made of titanium which is a bio-compatible metal used for over 60 years to replace missing tooth roots. All ceramic/non-metal implants are the newest material being offered and has numerous advantages – primarily for people with true metal allergies or sensitivities. However, the dental implants Dr. Locante recommends are made of ceramic and are classified as non-metallic. It is very biocompatible with bone. Because of the compatibility, the jawbone grows around the implant making it firm and stable.
There is very minor discomfort with this procedure when performed by a trained surgeon. We offer I.V. sedation, oral sedation (pills) and general anesthesia to ensure our patients are pain free and completely comfortable. Most of our patients find that they do quite well with minor pain medication such as Ibuprofen (Advil) after the procedure and return to their normal activities within a day of their dental implant treatment.

Firm, Stable, Natural Looking Teeth: Dental implant treatment offers firm, stable, and natural looking teeth. Patients can eat almost anything they like and can smile with confidence again. Dental implants also stop the destructive bone loss process caused by trauma from wearing dentures.
People who have trauma from wearing dentures are most likely experiencing a gradual bone loss process that occurs when the teeth are extracted and tooth roots are missing. Because tooth roots stimulate jawbone health, the jawbone starts to shrink or melt away once the tooth roots are gone. Wearing a denture greatly speeds up the bone loss process. Normally, the lower jaw shrinks much faster than the upper jaw, causing the most problems.
