You likely found us by searching a term like “dental implants near me.” In that case, you came to the right place! Here at Scenic Bluffs Dental in Prescott, Wisconsin, Dr. Jay and his dedicated team are happy to assist you in recovering your smile.
Unlike other solutions such as dentures, which require constant maintenance and can fall out at embarrassing moments, dental implants are a much more stable solution. These implants are permanent and replace missing teeth one by one or multiple missing teeth with a bridge or dentures.
Long-lasting and durable dental implants also stop bone loss in your jaw. Implants also prevent your teeth from shifting, which can cause your face to change shape.
When it comes to tooth restoration using dental implants, we offer different options depending on the number of teeth that need to be restored. For example, if you’re missing only a single tooth, the doctor will install an implant that supports one dental crown.
And if you’re missing several teeth in a row, Dr. Jay would install a dental bridge held in place by two dental implants.
Finally, if you’re missing an entire arch, he will install a complete set of permanent dentures using four to six dental implants. And unlike traditional dentures, these will never fall out.
Dental implants are put in place by inserting them directly into your jawbone, and in time they will begin to fuse into place. During your first consultation, Dr. Jay will carefully evaluate your oral situation to determine if implants are the right option. In some cases, patients may require tissue or bone grafts. In that case, you’ll likely have to wait a couple of months after tooth extraction before we can place them.
However, once your implants are placed, your body will require a couple of months to heal fully. Then, once the implants fuse with your jawbone, the doctor will begin preparing your implants to bond with your new prosthetics while taking impressions of your teeth to send to our dental lab.
After a few weeks, your new prosthetics will arrive at our practice, where you’ll return to have them placed.
Dr. Jay started his career as a dental lab technician, which allows him a unique perspective to help him find the right design for gorgeous, natural-looking restorations guaranteed to renew your smile.
