Dental Implant Services Evansville, WI
Tooth loss is a difficult thing to handle – not only is your oral health damaged, but your self-confidence and overall quality of life suffer a heavy blow as well. Many patients turn to traditional replacement options like dental bridges and dentures, only to find themselves dissatisfied with their unnatural feel. At Maple Grove Family Dental, we can’t turn the clock back on your natural smile, but we can help you discover the next best solution: dental implants. This revolutionary reconstructive treatment offers patients exceptional benefits, both for the health of their smile and its aesthetic value, and Dr. Melanie White would love to introduce you to it.
Contact our Evansville, WI practice today to schedule an implant consultation with our team! We also welcome patients from Brooklyn, Oregon, Orfordville, Brodhead, Janesville, Albany, and beyond.
Why are dental implants the right choice?
Most solutions for replacing lost teeth only bother with the crown, the white portion that makes up your beautiful smile. What many patients don’t realize is that there’s another, equally important part of each tooth hidden under the gums – the root. The root has the essential function of stimulating the jawbone. Without it, patients experience tissue deterioration, as well as an unpleasantly “hunched” facial appearance. Dental implants are the only reconstructive option that replicates the entire structure of your tooth pairing the lifelike beauty you need with rejuvenating results.
The Dental Implant Process
- First, our team at Maple Grove Family Dental will need to determine whether or not you’re the right candidate for dental implants. Dental implants generally have the highest rate of success when the patient has enough jawbone density to support them and good oral health overall. Dr. White may recommend undergoing certain restorative procedures beforehand to ensure better results later on.
- After this consultation and any preceding treatment, it will be time to have your dental implant(s) placed. Our team will recommend a trusted specialist in the area to handle this procedure, and we’ll work with them to ensure your comfort and confidence every step of the way.
- In most cases, the implant site will need a few months to heal following the placement. This allows your new implants to form a strong bond with natural tissue setting the stage for a restoration.
- Once you’ve recovered, it’ll be time to return to our Evansville practice so Dr. White can design and place new, tooth-colored restorations over the implants, giving them back their strength and natural look. You’re finished!
Dr. White’s recommendation for your restoration will depend on the number of teeth lost and your unique goals for your improved smile. In cases of individual teeth, a custom, all-ceramic dental crown can seamlessly recreate the needed structure without forcing patients to sacrifice the health of surrounding teeth in the process. However, this option can become costly if there are several teeth in need of restoration.
Alternatively, implant-retained prosthetics provide patients with the extensive coverage they need all at once. These appliances resemble traditional bridges and dentures, but they’re designed to attach to implants for a more permanent and confident result. Both fixed and removable options are available at our Evansville practice!
