Dental ImplantsIf you've watched any television or driven on any highways recently, you've probably encountered advertisements for dental implants. Additionally, if you are missing any of your permanent teeth, you may have wondered about dental implants for yourself. Dr. Thomas Steinbach and Dr. Beth Sievers offer these incredible restorations at their Brookfield, WI, office—read on to learn more about them!


How do dental implants work?

Placement of your dental implants starts with your Brookfield dentist placing a small titanium post into your jawbone. Over a period of four to six months, your jaw will naturally grow around the implant, fusing it into place just like a natural tooth's root. At this time, your dentist will attach a tiny piece of metal (called an abutment) on to the post. This will then be the connecting piece between the post and the crown, which is the visible, tooth-shaped portion of the implant.


How do I maintain my dental implants?

The sophisticated design of dental implants might make them seem like they require an intense daily cleaning routine. However, they are perhaps the lowest-maintenance dental restoration that you can wear! You only have to make sure that you are brushing and flossing daily to keep your gums and surrounding teeth healthy. They never need to be removed or adjusted, making them the most stable dental restoration available.

You can also expect your dental implants to last several decades, even a lifetime, as long as you maintain your dental health and schedule checkups twice a year at Steinbach Dental in order to make sure that everything is in working order.
