The Versatility Of Dental Implants
At some point or another, everyone has probably wished they owned a magic wand with which to conjure a brand new smile with a simple wave of the hand. And while such magic unfortunately only exists in the imagination of J.K. Rowling, dental technology has found a solution for one of the most traumatic and irreversible cosmetic and oral health problems - tooth loss.
A New Smile with Dental Implants in Waukesha
With traditional tooth replacement options like crowns, bridges, and dentures, the cosmetic portion of the tooth is replaced to restore the aesthetic and practical functions that allow for eating, speaking clearly, and looking good in selfies and when facing the world at large. All are highly effective options, and have been modernized to look and feel as comfortable and natural as possible.
Implants take it a step further and replace the roots of missing teeth as well, which in addition to adding stability and longevity to a crown help to preserve bone tissue in the jaw. Why is this important? When a tooth falls out, the bone in the jaw begins to erode. Bone loss can lead to a number of oral health problems, like infection, gum inflammation, and periodontal disease.
The dentists at Waukesha, WI based Complete Family Dentistry recommend implants for patients in good health with enough remaining bone density in the jaw to support the implant, which fuses with the existing bone to create a stable anchor for the cosmetic crown. Made of biocompatible titanium, implants have a very high success rate for patients who adhere to strict oral hygiene and follow up care.
