Our Dental Implant Services
For many people, losing a tooth can be devastating. In addition to affecting the sound of your speech and your ability to chew healthy foods, tooth loss also damages your oral health and your self-confidence.
While traditional reconstructive solutions like dentures and bridges have been around for many years, patients often find themselves dissatisfied with their look and feel, wishing more than anything that they could just have their original tooth back.
While our team at Lakeland Family Dental can’t turn back the clock, we can offer you the next best option available with dental implants. Dental implants provide patients with a long-lasting, permanent, and beautifully seamless replacement that’s sure to give them something to smile about here in Oconomowoc, WI.
The Dental Implant Process
When choosing dental implants, our team will first need to perform a thorough evaluation of your jawbone and overall oral health so that we can determine whether you’re a viable candidate. If our findings are positive, we can help you take the next step towards the surgical placement of your new implant.
The secret behind the success of dental implants is that they replicate the root of your tooth, stimulating the jawbone and even rejuvenating the tissue in some cases. Dr. Ruiz or Dr. Sam will be happy to recommend you to a trusted periodontist or oral surgeon who can handle this portion of your treatment skillfully and comfortably.
Once your implants have been placed, you’ll need to undergo a period of healing; during this time, your new implant and your jawbone will form a strong, natural bond. Then, you’ll return to Lakeland Dentistry so that we can design and place brand-new, quality restorations, completing your new and improved look.
For single implants, an all-ceramic crown is the ideal solution. Our Oconomowoc dental office also offers implant-retained prosthetics for patients who would like a more convenient and affordable option for replacing several teeth at once.
Once completed, dental implants provide exceptional strength and beauty to patients. They can be treated just like natural teeth, which means that no changes to your diet or oral hygiene routine are necessary. Better yet, with an appropriate home care routine and regular check-ups at Lakeland Family Dental, dental implants can last a lifetime!
