What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots placed into the jawbone to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place and replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth. They’re small titanium posts that fuse safely and permanently with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. Dental implants, unlike dentures and bridges, are the only tooth replacement option that preserves natural bone by mimicking a real tooth root.

The dental implant process involves placing three main components to replace missing teeth:

  • Implant Post: This titanium “root” integrates with the jawbone to hold the implant in place.
  • Abutment: An attachment piece that connects the dental implant to the visible tooth portion.
  • Dental Crown: A customized tooth designed to look, feel, and function like a natural tooth. The crown attaches securely to the abutment.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Implant dentistry offers significant advantages over other tooth replacement options:

  • Look and Feel like Natural Teeth: Dental implants are custom-designed to precisely match neighboring and missing teeth.
  • Preserve Jawbone: Dental implants prevent bone loss by mimicking the root’s stabilizing pressure. Dentures and bridges can’t halt bone loss.
  • Improve Oral Health: Dental implants don’t affect nearby teeth. Bridges require grinding down adjacent teeth.
  • Strengthen Bite: Implants fuse with the jawbone for strength matching natural teeth. Dentures may slip and alter bite alignment.
  • Restore Ability To Eat: Patients report improved eating after getting implants due to their bite strength and stability.
  • Boost Confidence: The implant’s secure fit and natural appearance have a dramatic positive impact on self-esteem.

If missing teeth are impacting your quality of life, dental implants can provide a permanent, confidence-boosting solution. Let Dr. Yenchesky give you your healthy, beautiful smile back.

Dental Implant Candidacy

Ideal candidates for dental implants include:

  • Those in good general and oral health: A dental implant solution requires a healthy immune system and excellent oral hygiene habits.
  • People with sufficient jawbone density and volume: Your jawbone must be robust enough to integrate with the artificial tooth root.
  • Non-smokers: Smoking severely impairs healing and increases the risk of implant failure.
  • Those committed to diligent implant care and regular dental visits: Excellent long-term care is crucial to dental implant success.
  • Patients with good plaque control: Poor hygiene leading to periodontal disease can destroy bone and jeopardize the dental implant.
  • People with one or more missing teeth or failing restorations: Implants provide a permanent, stable restoration for a missing tooth.

During your implant dentistry exam, Dr. Yenchesky will assess your bone quality and density, gum health, medical status, and other factors to determine if you’re a suitable candidate for dental implants. Even if you don’t meet all the criteria, there are solutions available to make you a good candidate.

The Dental Implant Surgery Process at Fox View Dental

Initial Consultation

Dr. Yenchesky will begin with a thorough evaluation of your dental and medical history and conduct exams of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. He’ll take x-rays and make impressions to gain an in-depth view of your mouth’s unique anatomy. Once Dr. Yenchesky determines you’re a good candidate, it’s time for dental implant placement.

Dental Implant Surgery

On the dental implant surgery day, you’ll receive local anesthesia and sedation dentistry before Dr. Yenchesky makes small openings in the gums to expose the jawbone. With precision, he’ll insert the tiny implant posts into carefully planned positions. 

He’ll then suture the gums closed over the implant sites to allow the titanium implants to securely bond with the jawbone. You’ll wear temporary dentures during this period to protect your teeth and gums after dental implant surgery. 

Healing and Osseointegration

The osseointegration process following dental implant surgery takes three to six months on average. After the implants have fully fused with the bone, they’re ready to be restored with permanent replacement teeth.

Finalizing Your Restorations

Dr. Yenchesky will connect abutments to the implants and take impressions of your bite. Our skilled implant dentistry technicians will use these to craft natural-looking crowns, bridges, or dentures that precisely fit the abutments and your mouth. At insertion appointments, Dr. Yenchesky will ensure the optimal fit, comfort, and performance of your dental implant restorations.

With proper care, your implants can last decades, giving you back your health, function, and confidence. Don’t hesitate to call us at (920) 336-4201 if you experience discomfort or have any implant concerns.

Caring For Your Dental Implants

Diligent care is required to keep your new dental implants looking and feeling healthy and comfortable. Thankfully, caring for your implants is as easy as caring for your natural teeth. 

Follow Dr. Yenchesky’s tips to protect your stunning smile:

  • Brush Twice A Day: Gently brush the dental crowns, metal abutment portion, and gum line to eliminate plaque and debris.
  • Floss Carefully Once A Day: Use specialized threaders or interdental brushes to access implant sites.
  • Avoid Sticky, Hard Foods: Stick to a balanced, soft diet to prevent implant damage.
  • Quit Smoking: Smoking impairs healing and increases the risk of implant failure.
  • Get Professional Cleanings: Visit our De Pere dental office at least every six months for plaque removal and gum health checks.
  • Watch For Inflammation: Red, swollen, or bleeding gums indicate developing peri-implantitis gum disease. 
  • Call Us at Any Sign of Implant Problems: Proper implant care is key to their long-term success and your oral health.
