What is a dental implant?
A tooth that is missing or compromised greatly affects the quality of your life. Eating and chewing the foods you would normally enjoy is challenging, and smiling or talking to others is embarrassing. A dental implant in Glendale, WI is the best solution to replace your failing tooth, and here is why.
A dental implant uses a titanium post that is surgically placed into your jawbone to take the place of your root. This helps to protect your bone from deterioration by keeping it stimulated and healthy. A new tooth made of ceramic porcelain is designed to closely mimic and replace your missing tooth. It's custom shaded to match your existing teeth, so it is aesthetically appealing for your smile.
Dental implants are a highly successful treatment with a 95% success rate. They also offer great longevity as they can often last a lifetime with the right care. For these reasons, they are the best long term investment you can make in your oral health when you are missing a tooth.
