HIGHLAND DENTAL – FORT ATKINSON, WI
Fort Atkinson Dental
Dr. Garrison and the team at Highland Dental place and restore dental implants in our office. Implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing dentures.
What is a dental implant?
It’s not uncommon for Americans over the age of 35 to have lost one or more adult teeth. When age, decay, or a dental accident have caused tooth loss, the everyday functions of how we are able to bite, chew and speak are interrupted. Teeth that remain in the mouth can shift in place, become prone to gum disease, and bone loss in the jaw often develops quickly. With dental implants by Highland Dental, patients in Fort Atkinson can experience life-changing results with a smile that supports their overall health.
During a dental implant procedure, a local anesthetic is administered to numb the area for a painless treatment process. Sedation dentistry is also popularly used for patients who wish to be fully relaxed in a deep sedative state. Once patients feel calm and relaxed, a titanium implant is positioned into the jaw bone to fuse with the jaw, much like a healthy tooth root. A small abutment fixes the new crown into place.
Implants Look Natural
Dental implants are custom-designed by Highland Dental to fit comfortably into the mouth and balance out the uneven pressure placed on teeth when one or more teeth are missing. After x-rays are taken, an impression is made of teeth the resulting model is used to craft custom replacement teeth. These teeth are made from strong porcelain or composite resin to match the look and feel like natural teeth. After placement, dental implants can last a lifetime and don’t require a change in your regular dental hygiene routine—although we still recommend brushing and flossing twice daily!
