Replace Missing Teeth with Sioux Falls & Brandon Dental Implants
A missing tooth, whether it’s a front toot or a back tooth, can drain your self-confidence. Several missing teeth may even prevent you from leaving the house altogether. Dental implants provide patients with a solution that closely mirrors nature’s design. With an implant-supported tooth or teeth, you can eat, smile, and speak with restored confidence.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants may sound complicated, but when you consider the structure of a tooth, it makes perfect sense. A tooth has two parts: the root that extends into the jaw bone, and the crown that emerges from the gum line. A dental implant also has two parts. The implant fixture replaces the root portion of the tooth, and a custom crown replaces the part that shows when you smile.
Drs. Scott and Jeff Wehrkamp can replace a single missing tooth with an implant crown, or they can anchor a bridge or denture with dental implants. While implants require a brief surgery and a healing time, they pose many benefits over traditional solutions.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- Independently anchored – the implants will not affect surrounding, healthy teeth
- Comfortable – implants are designed to function just like natural teeth
- Aesthetic – non-metal materials can be used to create a natural appearance
- Promote bone growth - the bone in your jaw actually grows around the implant instead of collapsing as it would without root stimulation
Drs. Scott and Jeff Wehrkamp are educated in smile design and full-mouth reconstruction. They can determine if dental implants are the right solution for your smile during a consultation and evaluation of your medical history and oral health.
