3 Reasons Why Dental Implants Are the Choice Dental Treatment 

Incredibly Strong

These devices are usually made of medical-grade titanium. As long as you take care of your teeth and visit our Sheboygan, WI, dentists regularly, your dental implants may never need replacement.

Jawbone Support

When you lose a tooth, the surrounding bone tissue begins to recede. Unlike non-implant bridges and conventional dentures, dental implants stop jawbone atrophy from happening.

Confidence

Traditional dentures are notorious for slipping out of place and causing embarrassing moments. But implant dentures stay fastened, allowing you to eat the toughest foods without worrying about your dentures.

A Closer Look at Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that act just like your natural tooth roots. After a dentist places them in the jawbone, they begin to fuse with the surrounding tissue. This process (called osseointegration) creates a healthy, stable foundation for the long-term success of a patient's implants and restorations. Once osseointegration is complete, one of our doctors will attach an abutment to the top of the post. The abutment will connect to your final restoration—a custom-made crownbridge, or denture

Dentists have used dental implants for several decades, and in that time they have shown impressive success rates. According to the Institute for Dental Implant Awareness, these devices have shown a 95 percent success rate. Because they are such a reliable, permanent solution for tooth loss, over 5 million implants are placed every year in the United States alone.

Dental Implants: An Option for Any Number of Missing Teeth

Patients come to our Sheboygan, WI, office with all levels of tooth loss. Whether you lost a single tooth because of an accident, multiple teeth as a result of dental issues, or all of your teeth due to extensive dental damage, this can be a great option

Depending on how many teeth you are missing, Drs. HillBistan, or Stroobants can recommend an implant-supported restoration that fits your needs.

Are You a Candidate?

Because of the constant advancements in the field of dentistry, most patients with missing teeth can qualify for dental implants. But prior to scheduling your surgery, our dentists will check:

Your Jaw Health

If you've been missing a tooth for a long time, it's likely that your jaw tissue has begun to recede. Because you need sufficient bone tissue, our dentists may recommend a bone graft or sinus lift before placement.

Your Oral Health

Because gum disease can increase your risk of peri-implantitis and implant failure, you will need to have a healthy smile before beginning implant treatment. In most cases, we can provide the dental treatment you need at our Sheboygan, WI, office

Your Overall Health

Before clearing you for treatment, we will make sure you are healthy enough to safely undergo oral surgery. By quitting smoking and managing diseases like diabetes, you can reduce the risk of complications and help your body heal.

Do You Have Dental Phobia?

Many adults do not get the dentistry they need because of a fear of the dentist. 

We understand and respect your concerns, and we are here to help you overcome your hesitations. Our office provides sleep dentistry. This form of sedation can help you relax during your treatment. Sleep dentistry also allows our team to perform more dental work in a short period of time, expediting your appointments and helping you get back to normal life as soon as possible.

Relax at Our State-of-the-Art Office

At Signature Dental, we want you to feel, comfortable, calm, and confident during your dental visit. Our spacious dental office combines the warm touches of home with modern, polished furnishings. 

Our talented team also uses the latest techniques and tools to deliver a painless, efficient experience that feels more like a spa visit than a medical appointment. 

Preparing for Surgery

Once you are cleared for surgery, the Signature Dental team in Sheboygan will provide a set of pre-operative instructions to prepare you for your appointment. In general, you will need to: 

  • Follow fasting instructions: Some forms of sleep dentistry require you to begin fasting the night before your appointment.
  • Bring a friend: Sedation will leave you unable to drive for the remainder of the day. To ensure your safety, you will need a reliable friend or family member to drive you home after your surgery. 
  • Stop smoking: Smoking increases the risk of complications during and after your surgery, so kick the habit well in advance of your procedure. 
  • Take time off work: Plan to take it easy on the day of your surgery. You may also need a day or two to relax at home following surgery.

How Do the Parts Fit Together?

Six Steps to a Complete Smile 

Every smile is different, so every procedure will be different. The length of your surgery will depend on how many implants you are receiving and the general complexity of your case. Because this is an outpatient procedure, you will get to return home soon after your surgery. After three to six months of healing, your implants will be able to support permanent restorations:

The length of your surgery will depend on how many implants you need.
The length of your surgery will depend on how many implants you need.

Sedation

In addition to numbing the treatment area with local anesthesia, we may provide sedation to help you feel calm and relaxed during your procedure.

Incisions

The doctor will carefully create an incision in your gums where the implant will go.

Placement

The titanium post will be inserted into the jaw. Our office uses the latest tools to ensure precise placement.  

Sutures

Once the implant is securely in place, one of our doctors will suture the gum tissue closed. 

Abutments

Once the implants have fused to the jawbone, you will undergo another procedure in which abutments will be attached to the implants. When the gums have healed, your dentist can begin creating your permanent restoration.

Restoration

You will return to our office and your dentist will attach your permanent restoration to your implants. At this time, he can make any changes necessary to achieve a balanced, comfortable bite.
