Dental Implants in Franklin, WI

You can't grow new teeth, but dental implants offer the next best thing if you've lost a tooth. Dr. John Olsen, your Franklin, WI dentist, explains how you can benefit from dental implants.Dental Implants in Franklin, WI

What are dental implants?

A dental implant looks like a tiny screw and replaces the roots of a tooth. During a minor surgical procedure, your dentist creates a small opening in your jawbone and places the implant inside. Implants are made of titanium, a tough metal that bonds easily to bone. Over the course of several months, the implant fuses to the bone, providing a secure foundation for the crown that will be placed on top of it. In some cases, you may receive a temporary crown the same day you receive your implant.

Aren't implants expensive?

The initial costs of dental implants may seem high when compared to the cost of bridges and dentures, but it's important to consider the lifetime costs of each tooth replacement option. With proper care, your implant will last your entire life, while bridges and dentures may need to be replaced several times.

What are the advantages of implants?

Dental implants offer several benefits that other replacement options don't, including:

No Jawbone Loss: Your teeth roots constantly stimulate your jawbone and keep it strong. When you lose a tooth, the bone underneath begins to recede. Since dental implants take the place of your roots, you don't have to worry about jawbone loss.

Better Chewing: Because dentures rest on top of your gums, they don't offer the biting power that implants do. If you choose dentures to replace lost teeth, you may not be able to eat certain hard foods. Eating isn't a problem with dental implants.

Easy Care: You'll care for your implants the same way you do your natural teeth. Regular brushing and flossing around the implant is essential to prevent an infection that can threaten the health of your dental implant. Luckily, infections are rare if you practice good oral hygiene.
