Maintaining a good oral regimen is vital for your health. Sometimes, however, brushing and flossing can't prevent a tooth from sustainingdental implants certain injuries, like getting knocked out while playing football or hockey. That's why Dr. Charles Steinbach, Dr. Thomas Steinbach and Dr. Elizabeth Sievers of Steinbach Dental in Brookfield, WI, provide their patients with dental implants

Dental Implants:

Dental implants are made up of a titanium post that is surgically inserted into your jaws to replace your missing tooth root. It creates stability, strength and prevents the weakening and shrinkage of your jawbone. The dentist then seals your gums and allows 3 to 6 months for osseointegration to occur.

Afterwards, the patient needs to come back to Steinbach Dental in Brookfield so that they can re-open the area above the titanium post, insert a screw, place an abutment above the screw and secure a crown on top that matches the rest of your teeth.

Advantages of dental implants

Not having to worry about gaps in your teeth is definitely an advantage, but here are some more advantages that dental implants provide:

  • A dental implant can restore one tooth, a few teeth or all of your teeth.
  • They can restore bite and chewing function.
  • Unlike dentures, dental implants are fixed in place and don't fall out of place.
  • The dental implants can last a lifetime.

Taking care of your dental implants

Like the rest of your teeth, make sure you brush your teeth and floss every day. Also, a change in diet could be beneficial. Eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, and avoiding sugary foods to prevent the accumulation of plaque is good preventative dentistry.
