Do you wear dentures? Do you have missing, decaying, or dead teeth? Or would you just like to improve your smile? For those that want to be extreme and do a complete makeover of your mouth because you have imperfectly sized or shaped teeth, discolored, or not perfectly placed teeth, there is a solution for you. You can get Dental Implants.
What are dental implants
Dental implants are actually a complete replacement of your tooth/teeth, including the root. Since they replace the tooth and are actually implanted right into the bone, they provide a very solid foundation.
Advantages of dental implants
Like I said before, dental implants are permanent. Often times once they are implanted, you don’t ever need any additional work done to maintain them. They help improve your smile and appearance, which often leads to an improved self esteem. If you currently wear dentures, dental implants can improve your speech. Also dentures can cause embarrassing moments when you are eating. Forget about that happening again if you have implants.
Prior to having dental implants available to us, our only option for replacing teeth was dentures or bridges. Because of the flexibility we have in designing dental implants, they are becoming more popular in cosmetic dentistry. There are people who have perfectly healthy teeth that are literally having all of their teeth removed only to have them replaced with perfect looking white shiny dental implants. It might sound a little ridiculous, but once the teeth are implanted you can’t even really tell that you have artificial teeth.
Where can you get dental implants
It is recommended that you consult with a prosthodontist. A prosthodontist specializes in dental implants and cosmetic dentistry. A lot of dentists are qualified to do implants, but if you are going to get dental implants (which aren’t cheap by the way), you might as well have someone who specializes in implant surgery do the work. If your dentist does not specialize in cosmetic surgery, they should be able to refer you to a dentist or prosthodontist that does.
If you live in the Eau Claire WI area, I recommend Chippewa Valley Dentists. They are a cosmetic dentist Eau Claire. They specialize in dental implants.
