Providing Dental Implants in Eau Claire, WI
If you have missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite and cause you discomfort. When teeth are missing, your teeth can shift and even cause your face to look older. Dental implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth, and Regis Court Dental Associates in Eau Claire can help with implants for you!
A dental implant is a new tooth made of titanium alloy and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth. It's composed of two parts that mimic a tooth's root and crown. The "root" is a titanium rod that mimics a screw and is placed into the jaw bone to act as a root. Once the rod is in place, a porcelain crown is attached to replace the top part of your tooth.
Dental implants may also be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. Plus, for patients with removable partial dentures, dental implants can replace missing teeth so that you have a more natural-looking smile without the hassle of a removable denture.
