Improved Form, Function, and Aesthetics with Dental Implants

Living with missing teeth can severely limit your quality of life, making everyday activities such as chewing and speaking difficult. Fortunately, Drs. David D. Wyse and Jay W. Chrisman restore dental implants at their Bloomington, IL, office to return form and function, to your smile. Dental implants provide a secure foundation for crowns, bridges, and dentures, providing patients with missing teeth the opportunity to smile confidently again.

Dr. Jay Chrisman explains the many health benefits of dental implants and the placement process

Dental Implants Basics

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone. These posts replace lost tooth roots to provide superior support to restorations. Dental implants can uphold all types of restorations, including crowns, bridges, and full dentures. Implants are typically made from titanium or a titanium alloy. 

The posts will integrate with your jaw through a process called osseointegration. This fusion is what produces the unrivaled stability that has made dental implants a highly recommended restorative solution. We can provide temporary restorations for you to wear while healing. Once you have fully healed, a period that usually takes about four to six months, permanent restorations can be attached to your implant posts with abutment, or connector, pieces. 

At Wyse Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we specialize in restoring dental implants. Our office will use advanced technology to determine if the treatment is right for you. We then coordinate and oversee all of our patients' treatments with trusted periodontists and oral surgeons for placement and preparatory procedures. 

A dental implant replaces lost tooth roots to provide unparalleled support and stability to restorations.


Dental implants are highly beneficial, and can improve oral health for a wide range of patients. Patients considering dental implants will need to meet various qualifications, including:

  • Have good overall, oral, and periodontal health with no active periodontal disease
  • Commit to consistent, proper oral hygiene, and routine checkups with a dentist
  • Have enough bone density and room to anchor the implant in the jaw
  • Not smoke, or be willing to quit smoking before and during treatment

In the case that your jaw has weakened due to long-term tooth loss, bone grafts can restore strength and density to the treatment area. In addition, if you do not have sufficient room in your upper jaw, you may require a sinus lift prior to receiving dental implants. 

Dental implants can end the discomfort and awkwardness associated with missing teeth, and can provide an excellent long-term solution for oral health and function. 

Possible Risks 

Any medical procedure calls for a certain amount of caution. If you are considering dental implants, keep in mind that surgery could result in potential damage to other teeth, blood vessels, nerves, and surrounding tissue, as well as present a minor risk of infection. In addition, smoking, diabetes, osteoporosis, and high alcohol consumption increase the risk of dental implant failure. However, if you live a healthy lifestyle and are in good overall health, there is a limited chance of side effects. In addition, for many patients, the benefits are able to outweigh the negligible risks involved. 

Life-changing Benefits

Dental implants can end the discomfort and awkwardness associated with missing teeth, and can provide an excellent long-term solution for oral health and function. This treatment can provide life-changing advantages, including:

  • Increased oral function and comfort
  • Prevented bone loss
  • Preserved facial features
  • Long-lasting restorative solution
  • Increased confidence in appearance
  • Improved quality of life
