Dental implants and implant restoration

Dental implants are one of the most effective and permanent ways to address tooth extraction and loss. Dr. Angela Bauer Williams and her team at Cambridge Family Dental assist Cambridge, Wisconsin, area patients with restoring their smiles and can educate individuals on the advantages of dental implants and implant restoration compared to other options like dentures and bridges.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium roots, that are replaced with in the jawbone to resemble a tooth or group of teeth. A screw is inserted through the gums and into the jawbone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prosthesis including crowns, dentures, and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking, no one will know you had surgery. There’s approximately a 95% success rate for all implants. With modern advances in dentistry, some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns. For more details ask your dentist.

What is a dental implant?

Dr. Bauer Williams describes dental implant restoration as a tooth root replacement using a metal post made of titanium. This material is biocompatible and integrates well with the body with minimal risks or potential problems. The implant post is placed during an oral surgery procedure into the natural bone of the jaw and then stimulates the production of bone growth through osseointegration. The bone wraps around the implant to hold it in place. Then, the implant is restored with a bridge, denture, or dental crown, depending on the patient’s unique dental situation and needs.

Am I a proper candidate for dental implant restorations?

Dental implants are best for patients who need tooth replacement and have healthy and sufficient bone to ensure successful placement surgery. To determine if a patient is a good candidate, Dr. Bauer Williams will take a series of x-rays and other diagnostic imaging to check the bone, jaw, and other surrounding structures to plan for placement.
