If you have gaps in your smile, it could affect more than just your appearance and self-confidence. Gaps can cause your teeth to shift and your jawbone to atrophy, causing issues with your bite and even causing sagging facial skin or premature aging in some cases. Luckily, our Wauwatosa dentist can help you fill in your gaps to look and feel great with dental implants.

At Daniel P. Malloy DDS, we use a mini dental implant system. These smaller and permanent fixtures do not require invasive surgery, bone grafting or months of long healing time. As a result, there is usually little or no discomfort and these implants are usually able to function immediately. Missing teeth replacements from single crowns to full dentures can be stabilized or permanently attached with this procedure. Comfortable, affordable, real time dental implants are now possible.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace a missing tooth and its root, permanently anchoring into the jawbone underneath your gap to integrate into your smile. Their design and permanence set them apart from traditional tooth replacement options like bridges or dentures. An implant has three main parts: a fixture, an abutment, and a prosthetic. Your Wauwatosa dentist implants the fixture directly into the jawbone, allowing the bone to grow around the fixture as the implant site heals to hold it in place. The prosthetic is made from porcelain and looks like a natural tooth. It fits over the fixture to replace the missing tooth. The abutment holds these two parts together and allows your dentist to remove or replace the prosthetic if need be.
