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
Implants Are Versatile
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.
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.
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.
Implant-Supported Dentures A Closer Look
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.

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.
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.
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
We Customize Restorations to Meet Your Needs
With a Variety of Materials
Your implant-supported restorations can be made from quality materials like porcelain, zirconia, and IPS e.max®. Each material can be made to look virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, and we will take care to make sure your results look as realistic as possible, regardless of the material you choose.
IPS e.max, a special type of dental ceramic, offers excellent durability and an exceptionally realistic result. Zirconia is the very strongest material used in dentistry. During your consultation, we can discuss the advantages of each material and their prices in order to help you make an informed decision.

Costs, Insurance, and Financing For Implant-Supported Restorations
At our practice in Bloomington, IL, replacing a single tooth with an implant and custom restoration usually costs around $2,100. Of course, the final costs for your restorations can vary widely depending on how many teeth you need to replace, the type of restoration needed, and the materials used to make your restorations.
Your dental insurance plan will likely help to cover the cost of your restorations, but basic insurance does not contribute to the cost of implants. A member of our team will work to help you get the most from your coverage. We also accept financing through CareCredit®, which allows you to split your out-of-pocket costs into affordable monthly payments.
