Dental Implants

Are you searching for a reliable and natural-looking solution to missing teeth? 

Dental implants are the only solution that not only restores your bite, but also prevents the bone loss that occurs when a tooth is lost. 

Let Wyse Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Bloomington, IL, transform your smile with natural-looking implant-supported restorations. 

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a small titanium device that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone and acts like a tooth root. To completely replace a tooth, a connector piece called an abutment and an artificial tooth are attached to the implant.

While there are other dental procedures to replace missing teeth, they lack the essential component that stimulates bone growth and retention in the jaw: the tooth root. Without stimulation from the root, the jawbone begins to deteriorate. That is why patients with traditional dentures frequently need to have their dentures adjusted.

At Wyse Family & Cosmetic dentistry, replacing a single tooth using this solution starts at $2,100.

Transform Your Smile How Dental Implants Are Placed

Dental implants can support a single tooth or an entire denture, providing excellent stability while benefiting the health of your jaw.

Implants Are Versatile 

Whether you are missing one tooth or many, Wyse Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Bloomington offers a variety of dental solutions that can bring back your smile and give you the strong, complete bite you've been missing.
Dental Crowns

Dental Crowns

Teeth have an important role in supporting each other. If just one tooth is missing, it allows other teeth to slip out of alignment. A single implant topped with a crown keeps teeth in alignment and encourages regenerative bone growth.

Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges

If you are missing several teeth in a row, two dental implants can support a dental bridge and fill the gap. Because implant-supported bridges are self-supporting, nearby natural teeth will not need to be altered to act as supports.

Dentures

Dentures

Dental implants securely support an entire denture, keeping it from slipping when you chew or speak. Implant-supported dentures also offer a stronger bite. And while traditional dentures accelerate bone loss, implants encourage bone growth and retention.

Do I Qualify for Implants?

Modern dentistry makes it possible for most people to qualify for dental implants. In general, you need to be in good overall health, not have any oral health issues such as gum disease, and be a non-smoker (or at least willing to quit).

In addition, you must have sufficient bone to support implants. However, if you find bone density is a problem, Drs. David Wyse and Jay Chrisman at Wyse Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can replace lost bone tissue in your jaw and help you qualify for implants.

Bone Grafts

Our dentists can restore bone density through a relatively simple treatment that involves inserting donor bone tissue or grafting material where there is low bone density. This triggers new bone growth over the next few months and results in a viable foundation for dental implants.

Sinus Lift

In some cases, low bone density occurs in the upper jawbone near the sinuses. In order to safely accommodate a dental implant without disturbing the sinus membranes, our dentists can perform a procedure called a sinus lift. The dentist will lift the sinus floor to a higher position and add donor bone tissue or grafting material to make room for the implant

Treatment Timeline for Dental Implants What to Expect

Each patient is unique, and their timeline will vary according to their needs. But in general, the steps below are what you can expect for implant surgery:
 

Consultation

Our dentists will conduct a thorough exam, going over your medical history and taking digital scans of your mouth and jawbone to determine your options for replacing missing teeth. If our dentist determines dental implants are a good solution for you, he will refer you to a trusted dental implant surgeon to perform your surgery.

Preparatory Procedures 

If you need preparatory procedures, such as bone grafts or a sinus lift, these will be performed before the implant surgery. Grafts will require a few months to integrate with your jaws.

Implant Placement

The implant dentist will numb the area and, if desired, provide sedation to ensure you are comfortable throughout the dental implant procedure. Next, a small incision is made in the gums to insert the titanium devices.

First Healing Period

It takes between three and six months for the implants to fuse with the bone, a process that is called osseointegration.

Abutment Placement

Once the implant has fused with the bone, the gum tissue will be reopened and the abutment will be attached to the implant. It takes a couple of weeks to heal after this simple surgery.

Impressions

After the gums have healed around the abutment, you will return to Wyse Family & Cosmetic Dentistry so we can take an impression of the treatment area. We use our iTero™ 3-D imaging system to precisely scan the treatment area and any nearby teeth. The impressions are then sent to a trusted lab for fabrication of the restoration.

Restoration Placement

When the restoration returns from the lab, the dentist will test the fit and make any necessary adjustments. Once you and the dentist are pleased with the results, the restoration will be attached and you can see how lifelike it looks and feels.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dental implants are especially beneficial to denture wearers. If you have worn traditional dentures, you know that they restore only a fraction of your biting and chewing power, can easily slip out of place, and need frequent adjustments. But dental implants keep dentures firmly in place, restoring virtually the same level of function that natural teeth provide. 

We can use custom dentures to restore both traditional implants as well as All-on-4 implants, a solution that relies on just four specially designed implants (as opposed to six to eight traditional implants). During your consultation at our office, we can take precise measurements and provide you with an implant-supported denture that makes you look great and feel absolutely confident in your smile.
