Smile-Saving Dental Implants From Dousman Family Dental

Damaged or missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and even cause problems when biting or chewing. For some patients, ill-fitting dentures or removable partials can be uncomfortable and cumbersome. When saving your natural teeth isn’t possible, dental implants from Dousman Family Dental are a more permanent solution to get your smile back.


What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial replacement that closely resembles your natural teeth, making it a popular choice for people with missing teeth. The implant acts as an artificial root anchored to your jawbone to hold a crown or denture. It offers several benefits over traditional crowns and dentures. Dental implants are designed to last upwards of 25 years. There are different types of implants such as full mouth implants and all-on-4 dental implants.

Dental Implant Benefits

Dousman Family Dentistry works closely with oral surgeons and periodontists to create custom dental implants that look and feel like your own teeth. Dental implant benefits include:

  • Comfort: A dental implant feels just like your natural tooth. You may even forget you have it! It replaces the hassle and discomfort of removable partials or dentures that can create irritation by slipping or rubbing.
  • Longevity: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
  • Strength: Traditional bridges and partials add extra stress by using surrounding teeth for support, unlike dental implants.
  • Aesthetics: Dental implants look like your other teeth. Because the fit is so comfortable, you’ll feel more confident in your smile.

For many seniors, dental implants are the best, hassle-free alternative to dentures. Implants offer simple functionality and a natural look to patients of all ages.


Classifications of Dental Implants

Endosteal Implants

Endosteal implants are titanium, screw-shaped, and placed in the jawbone. These dental implants are the most commonly used type of implant.

Subperiosteal Implants

Subperiosteal implants are placed under the gum but not on or above the jawbone. This type of dental implant is used for patients without a healthy natural jawbone who do not want to undergo a bone augmentation procedure to rebuild it.


The Basic Types of Dental Implants

Dental implants come in various forms, each tailored to address specific tooth replacement needs. Choosing the right type of dental implant depends on individual needs and considerations.

Single Tooth Implants

If you find yourself with a single missing tooth, a Single Tooth Implant is an ideal solution. This procedure involves the placement of a single implant post into the jawbone, acting as an artificial root. Once integrated, a custom-made replacement tooth or crown is affixed to the implant, restoring the function and aesthetics of your natural tooth.

Single Arch Implants

For those with several adjacent missing teeth, Single Arch Implants offer a tailored solution. This implant procedure replaces multiple teeth within a single dental arch. Custom-made replacement teeth are secured onto strategically positioned implant posts, ensuring stability and a natural appearance. This option provides an effective and durable remedy for those missing several teeth in a specific area.

Full Mouth Implants

When facing the challenge of total tooth loss, Full Mouth Implants provide a comprehensive solution. This procedure involves the placement of implants throughout the entire dental arch, either upper, lower, or both. Once integrated with the jawbone, the implants support a set of custom-made replacement teeth, offering a secure and long-lasting alternative to traditional dentures. Full Mouth Implants ensure a functional and natural-looking smile, enhancing overall oral health.

All-on-4 implants

All-on-4 Implants present an innovative and efficient approach to full arch tooth replacement. This technique involves the strategic placement of four implants in a specific arch, optimizing support for a complete set of replacement teeth. The All-on-4 concept minimizes the number of implants required while providing exceptional stability and functionality. Patients benefit from same-day implant placement and the immediate attachment of temporary replacement teeth, streamlining the restoration process.

Our dental implant specialists will help you determine which type of dental implant is best for you.



Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

If you're missing a tooth, dental implants could be the solution. To be eligible, your gums must be healthy, your jawbone mature, and there should be sufficient bone density for support. The evaluation involves X-rays, CT scans, and a comprehensive medical check. Certain conditions, like uncontrolled diabetes, may impact candidacy. Collaboration between your dentist and healthcare provider is crucial for those with health conditions. For guidance, consult with our experienced dentists at Dousman Family Dentistry for a confident and lasting smile.


The Dental Implant Procedure

Before suggesting a dental implant, one of our experienced dentists will consult with you to determine whether you’re a good candidate and refer you to one of the many specialists we partner with. The dental implant process will begin with removing the existing tooth, allowing time to heal, then placing the implant. The implant will integrate into the bone over a span of 3 months, and then we will place the crown. The implant serves as a root for the missing teeth. The materials won't decay like real teeth. 

Together, from implant to final placement of your crown or denture, we’ll provide the best treatment for your situation. Don’t let dental implant costs in Wisconsin stop you from the smile you want. 


The Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implants in Southeastern Wisconsin cost between $3,500 and $5,000 per tooth. The final price can vary on the severity of your case, the chosen material, and the number of implants needed. If you have qualifying insurance, your out-of-pocket costs could be lowered significantly.

Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Unfortunately, many insurances consider dental implants to be an elective procedure even though they are the standard method of teeth replacement. Some dental insurances may cover a portion of the procedure.

Dousman Family Dentistry accepts most major insurances. You can check our accepted insurances online. Our billing associates can help you establish whether your insurance covers dental implants. We also offer flexible payment plans for those with no insurance.
