Are you worried that your smile will be changed forever due to missing teeth? If so, don't worry—dental implants, offered by your Franklin, dental implantWI, dentist, Dr. John Olsen of Franklin Dental, can fill the gaps in your smile!

 

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are the only restoration method that can replace an entire missing tooth from the root to the crown. Filling the vacant space in your jawbone that previously held a tooth, dental implants come to effectively serve as synthetic roots for a soon-to-be-attached tooth replacement. They are made of titanium, a lightweight, biocompatible metal that naturally bonds to bone. Termed osseointegration, this bonding is a crucial part of the implant process, for it ensures that your artificial roots are just as strong as their natural counterparts.

The first step in the implanting process itself, in which the titanium grounding post is placed into your jawbone. When bonding is complete a few months later, your Franklin dentist will make an impression of your mouth and add a connector called an abutment to the top of the implant.

Once a dental lab has received the impression and created your new crown, it will be connected to the dental implant. With your new crown in place, your smile will once again be complete!

 

Are dental implants a good choice for me?

Dental implants are usually an excellent option if you're in good health, don't have gum disease or other oral health issues, and regularly practice good oral hygiene. They may not be recommended if you smoke, have a condition that affects your immune system, or take medication that suppresses the immune system.

Implants offer several benefits that make them a good choice. In many cases, dental implants never need to be replaced, which can save you money when you compare the lifetime cost of implants to other restoration methods. Dental implants also feel like natural teeth. You can even bite into hard or tough foods with ease because the implants are securely attached to your jawbone!

The implants also help protect your jawbone. Jawbone resorption, or shrinking, can occur after tooth loss. The problem happens when the bone no longer receives constant stimulation from your tooth roots. Dental implants take over for your roots and help keep your jawbone strong.
