How Do Straumann Implants Work?

Straumann implants are made of zirconia ceramic material, which can be shaded to closely resemble your natural tooth roots. In terms of actually replacing your teeth, they work much like traditional implants. They’re surgically inserted into the jaw and left to fuse with the bone tissue over the course of several months. Once they are firmly in place, they can be used to support a dental restoration such as a crown. With multiple Straumann implants, we can replace any number of teeth with bridges or dentures that stay firmly in place at all times. The implants will provide the same stimulation as natural tooth roots, thus preventing your jawbone from breaking down.

How are Straumann Implants Different from Regular Implants?

Most dentists only offer dental implants that are made out of titanium. This metal is not only strong, but it’s also biocompatible, meaning it can integrate with the natural tissues in your jaw without causing long-term health complications. However, the zirconia ceramic that Straumann implants are comprised of is even stronger, as backed by extensive, well-documented research. Furthermore, Straumann implants are ivory colored just like natural tooth roots, meaning they’ll blend in with the rest of the mouth even better than traditional implants. Thus, if you’re looking for the form of tooth replacement that will give you the most reliable, most aesthetically pleasing results, you should talk to Dr. Liscio and Dr. Maier about Straumann implants as soon as you can.
