Conquer Tooth Loss with Dental Implants

Shawn's Story

Start a New Chapter in Your Life

Are you struggling with missing, broken, or decaying teeth? Often edentulous patients suffer from pain and difficulty eating due to large gaps of missing teeth. Tooth loss eventually leads to larger problems like bone loss and gum disease, affecting our appearance even more. As a result, missing teeth effect more than just our physical well-being and infringe on our mental well-being as well. Whether you are missing just a few teeth or all of them, dental implants are the breakthrough technology you’ve been searching for to restore your smile. Dental implants mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, improving your smile esthetics and oral health. Our team at Coulee Region Implant & Oral Surgery Center is experienced in providing dental implants in the greater La Crosse & Onalaska, Wisconsin area, and can help you achieve a new smile and quality of life with this permanent solution.

Components of a Dental Implant

Dental implants mimic the look and feel of natural teeth thanks to their three main components: post, abutment, and restoration. The dental implant’s post is secured into the jawbone and acts like a tooth’s root, creating stability and support for the surrounding bone. The abutment is attached to the post and extends beyond the gumline acting as an attachment point to your restoration. Dental implants are the most versatile tooth replacement technology currently used by dental professionals. This solution allows the replacement of just a few or a whole mouth of missing teeth with full mouth dental implants.

Dental implant therapy requires the training, experience and precision of a Board-Certified Oral Surgeon.

The Flexibility of Dental Implant Treatment

Whether you are missing a single tooth or an entire row of teeth, dental implants provide the flexibility to replace any number of missing teeth. Dental implants are often used to support restorations like crowns and dental bridges, or to increase the stability of a permanent denture snapping directly onto the strategically placed implants. Patients missing all of their teeth often look to full mouth dental implants, utilizing restorations that look and feel like natural teeth, while returning the life-like functionality while chewing and speaking. Smile restorations not only greatly improve smile esthetics, they positively impact overall oral health and quality of life.

How Does the Dental Implant Process Work?

At Coulee Region Implant & Oral Surgery Center we customize treatment to your oral health needs and goals. Your implant journey begins with a consultation with one of our Board-certified surgeons in La Crosse or Onalaska, Wisconsin, to discuss your dental and medical history, take digital X-rays, and create a custom treatment plan. Once your treatment plan is finalized, it’s time for your surgery. Depending on your unique needs, your procedure may involve tooth removal and implant placement (Immediate Implant) or the site may need preparatory grafting prior to implant placement. We pride ourselves with staying at the forefront in technology and evidence-based protocols and routinely use custom made surgical guides for implant placement for precision and accuracy. Our surgeons have more training in providing anesthesia then any other dentist and routinely use IV sedation to ease the fear and anxiety of a surgical procedure. Dental implants need time to heal, a process called Osseointegration.  Healing time is usually 10-12 weeks.  When healing is complete you will be ready to start the process to create the replacement tooth.

Why Are Dental Implants Special?

Dental implants are the closest option we have to replace a missing tooth or assist a removable device, like a denture or partial denture. Alternative options include a Bridge, Denture or Partial Denture. A tooth supported bridge can be a good solution for a missing tooth but requires healthy teeth for support and additional time cleaning. A removable denture or partial denture is that, removable. They usually required glue to hold them in place and commonly cause pain and limit what you can eat. Dental implants are conservative, do not rely on adjacent teeth and are not removable. Implants come in many sizes and can provide even the most severe cases an opportunity for normal function. As a result, implants are one of the most preferred solutions for replacing a missing tooth.
