"I am beyond impressed with the level of professionalism, experience, knowledge, care and results Dr. Nathan Pfister produces. Your health is always his top priority! Extensive research on biologic dentistry in the US is what lead a friend of mine (who has mercury poising) to Dr. Pfister. Now, we all drive from Destin, Florida to be treated by Dr. Pfister. I will never go to a regular dental office again! Dental work completed…. Mercury removal, crowns, and ozone treatment."
Dothan, AL area dentist offers non-metal, zirconia dental implants as teeth replacement
When patients hear about implants, they are often excited to undergo a procedure that offers them a permanent solution to their tooth loss. However, there are different types of dental implants. Dothan, AL area dentists, Drs. Nathan Pfister and Brian Pfister of Biodentist Alabama, are pleased to offer non-metal teeth implants that can be used as an alternative to titanium. Zirconia dental implants are an excellent solution! .
A zirconia tooth implant is a non-metal alternative to traditional titanium dental implants. Instead of metal, zirconia offers a ceramic choice that is more natural-looking and just as strong and durable as conventional implants. These implants can be used in the same way as titanium implants .
There are several reasons why a patient may consider a zirconia non-metal dental implant over a traditional titanium option:
- Dental implants can be covered with a dental crown to replace a single tooth

- Dental implants can be utilized to stabilize full dentures in the mouth
- Biocompatibility / Holistic approach
- Optimal osseointegration (bone growth)
- Elimination of potential sensitivities and allergies to metal
- Aesthetic appearance
- Resistance to corrosion
- Non-conductivity of electricity
- Strength and durability
- Single piece option with no abutment or screw to come loose
- Ultimate comfort and functionality
Many patients enjoy the benefits of dental implants and find that zirconia ceramic is an even better solution for their smile.
Who is a candidate for dental implants?
