Dental ImplantsAre you living with tooth loss in Brookfield, WI? If so, our general dentists, Dr. Thomas Steinbach and Dr. Elizabeth Sievers, can help you get your smile back on track and to fill those embarrassing gaps with a restoration that is truly the next best thing to a real tooth. Wondering if dental implants are right for you? Here are just some of the benefits of getting this one-of-a-kind tooth replacement!

Preventing Misalignments

Did you know that if you leave your tooth loss untreated the rest of your natural teeth will slowly shift into those open gaps to compensate? Crookedness, crowding, and additional gaps between teeth, are just some of the problems that can occur from this smile shift. Fortunately, by getting dental implants, our Brookfield, WI, general dentist can prevent the rest of your smile from shifting out of alignment!

Enjoy Mealtimes Again

Even with only one missing tooth, the entire process of chewing food can become much more difficult. Consequently, it's also common for those dealing with tooth loss to also deal with digestive problems because their food isn't fully chewed. In the face of this issue, implants can provide enough stability so that replacement teeth won't move or shift around while chewing. This means that you can confidently enjoy all the foods that you once loved without worrying about whether your tooth is up for the job.

Prevent Bone Loss and Premature Aging

This is another very important benefit to dental implants. An implant is the only tooth replacement that is placed into the jawbone to function just like tooth roots. By placing the implant, we provide the jawbone with the stimulation it needs to continue producing new bone cells. Without an implant, the jawbone will begin to deteriorate over time, leading to structural changes in the face as well as the development of premature lines and wrinkles. Luckily, implants can prevent this from happening in the first place.

A Lifelong Replacement

Even though it can take up to one year or longer to get your full implant, it’s well worth it when an implant is designed to last several decades. This means that as long as you maintain good oral hygiene your implant could last the rest of your life. This also means fewer trips to the dentist for replacements and adjustments as compared to other artificial tooth options.
