Dental professional in Brookline, MA area offers Zirkolith and Straumann brand zirconia implants

Zirconia Dental Implants at Alpha Plus Dental Center in Brookline MA Area

A missing tooth does more than impact appearance. Missing teeth can cause shifting of existing teeth and inefficiencies in chewing, biting, and speaking. At Alpha Plus Dental Center, Dr. Stan Kovtun and his associates may suggest tooth replacement options that are biocompatible with the body and long-lasting. This includes Zirkolith zirconia implants available at our facility.

What are zirconia implants?

Dental implants are a popular choice for patients in the Brookline, MA area who are considering tooth replacement options. This type of implant is different then the traditional titanium and is made of zirconia, an oxide of Zirconium and is now considered a ceramic material. This looks like a small ceramic “screw” that is strategically placed into the bone and acts as a tooth root replacement. The abutment of the implant, which is visible over the gum line is customized and used to hold a crown, bridge, or denture. Dental implants are used in many ways and can replace one to all the teeth in the dental arch.

Who is a good candidate for Zirkolith zirconia implant?

The best candidates for implants are patients who have enough bone structure to successfully support the dental implant over time. During a consultation visit and initial evaluation, Dr. Stan Kovtun will evaluate the patient and take a Cone Beam  x-ray. This type of x-ray allows the dentist to determine candidacy in 3 dimensions and not just 2-dimensions like a traditional xray. In some instances, patients who are not considered good candidates for dental implants can ask about bone grafting to prepare the area for dental implants in the future. Alternative tooth replacement options include partial dentures and dental bridges.

What sets Zirconia implants apart from titanium?

Zirkolith zirconia implants:

  • Have been scientifically tested for soft tissue affinity
  • Are superior in aesthetics to traditional titanium implants due to being white in color
  • Provide the best biology for bone integration and
  • Are a ceramic material and ideal for those with any metal allergies

I drive over an hour from Cape Cod for all my dental work because Dr. Kovtun is one of the few Biological dentists around. Not only is he a master at dentistry but he offers a healthier holistic approach to oral health that is so important to me. Often times, conventional dentists overlook at the importance or how oral health effects the entire body. He and his staff are super nice and I'm glad I found them!! Read More

Have been a patient here for quite a while now. It was hard to find a dentist that I trusted in the area, but I've really enjoyed this practice. They tend to be conservative with their assessment, which I really value - no unnecessary treatments, and my teeth feel and look great. Read More

Dr. Kovtun is great. I chipped my 7-year molar, and he was able to fit me in the very next morning! He safely, quickly, and painlessly removed my old amalgam filling and prepped my tooth with a temporary fix while I wait for a beautiful new permanent one. He is knowledgeable, informative, and accomodating. The staff is super-competent and friendly. I will definitely be scheduling other dental procedures here. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!
