Dental Implants – Delafield, WI

The Most Complete Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are an integral component to our practice of dentistry, as they most closely copy the look and function of teeth. A dental implant replaces the root of a tooth, the part that is embedded in the jaw, allowing for tooth replacement to be secure and permanent. You can eat, brush, floss and talk as normal. Historically, the challenges with implants have been the use of of titanium. But in the last 15 years, metal-free implants have been a viable alternative, giving people more options for a natural tooth replacement. All implants placed at Bionica Dental Wellness are made of zirconia, a metal-free (bioceramic) material that has been proven to be high strength and friendly to the bone and gum. The results are a tooth replacement that is durable, long-lasting, esthetic, and healthy for the whole body.

Indications for Dental Implants

In order to be a qualified candidate for dental implants, a patient needs 3 basic things: good dental health, stable overall health, and enough strong jawbone to support the new roots. Once these requirements have been met, Dr. Holinbeck can use one of the following methods to restore your smile:

Missing Single Tooth

Instead of reshaping the teeth on either side of a gap to support a bridge, a single dental implant-supported crown can be placed between them to close the space. This approach helps preserve more tooth structure, which is better for overall health.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Dental implant crowns can be placed throughout the mouth as needed, but for patients with consecutive missing teeth, just 2 implants can support up to 4 new teeth, making this a more cost-effective solution that still delivers fantastic results.

Missing All Teeth

Dentures are a good solution to replace a full set of teeth, but often times, they are loose, irritate the gum tissues, and limit the types of food you can enjoy. If you’re looking for better functionality, implants can be used to anchor a full-mouth replacement of teeth and will allow you to chew better and be more confident whiles smiling and talking.

How Dental Implants Work

Once you and Dr. Holinbeck agree that dental implants are the best option to replace your missing teeth, the procedure will involve the following steps:

  1. After assessing your health from head-to-toe, Dr. Holinbeck will plan the placement of the implant using state-of-the-art 3D scanning technology. Guides are often used to ensure that the implant is placed in the most ideal position.
  2. Once the implant is in place, you’ll be given time to heal, which can take anywhere from 3-6 months depending on how many implants were placed and the health of the jawbone.
  3. To ensure faster and easier healing, Dr. Holinbeck often uses Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) to  encourage the growth of new, healthy tissue and reduce the risk of post-operative complications.
  4. Once healing is complete and the bone has fully secured the implant, the final metal-free restoration will be placed.
  5. At this point, consistent oral hygiene and attending regular checkups will help maintain the look and function of the implant for decades to come.
