The Modern, Enhanced Solution to Missing Teeth
We are all aware that tooth loss can detract from one’s appearance, but it also makes it difficult to chew and speak. Additionally, if left untreated, tooth loss will usually lead to other serious issues such as a loss of facial structure, deterioration of the jawbone, undesired tooth shifts and bite imbalances.

What is a Dental Implant?
At Dental Arts Associates, we specialize in providing our patients with top-quality treatments that leave you with a smile to be proud of. Dental implants are often considered the gold standard for tooth replacement. They are designed to restore the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth. Dental implants use a titanium metal structure that is surgically implanted into the jawbone and supports a crown, bridge, or denture. The implants will actually fuse to your jawbone, providing stable support for artificial teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, you will never have to worry about your teeth slipping. To receive implants, healthy gums and a strong jawbone are required to support the implant. If you have suffered from bone deterioration, a bone graft procedure may be necessary.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer a variety of unique benefits that set them apart from traditional restorative treatments, including:
- No alteration of surrounding teeth required
- Enhanced chewing and speaking abilities
- Lifespan of 35+ years with routine maintenance
- Treatment success rate of 98 percent
- Natural looking and feeling replacement teeth
- Preservation of jawbone density
- Prevent facial skin sagging and premature aging
- Easy to maintain
- Cost-effective in the long run
With so many advantages to offer, it’s clear why countless patients choose this modern treatment over the rest!
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
Dental implants can be used for a variety of tooth replacement needs, from a single tooth replacement to rebuilding an entire arch. At Dental Arts Associates, our extensive experience combined with the highest quality implants can provide you with a healthy, beautiful smile once again.
Missing One Tooth
To replace a single tooth, we can surgically insert a dental implant into the gap in your smile below the gums. It will fuse with the jawbone, providing a strong support system for us to attach a customized dental crown, completing your smile.
Missing Multiple Teeth
Instead of altering your surrounding healthy teeth by getting a dental bridge, we can secure a bridge using two dental implants that we surgically place below the gums on either side of the gap in your smile. Not only will this keep your surrounding teeth from shifting out of alignment, but it will also provide you with lasting, trusted stability that doesn’t rely on your other teeth.
Missing All of Your Teeth
We can secure a full denture with anywhere from four to eight dental implants that are strategically placed along your arch. Implant-retained dentures are more stable, making eating and speaking easier by eliminating any unwanted movement of your prosthetic.
All-on-4 implants are a great solution for patients who are missing all of their teeth along an arch. We’ll place four implants across the area and secure a load-bearing denture immediately afterward, so you won’t have to go without teeth as you heal and your implants fuse with your jawbone.
Mini Dental Implants
For patients who have been suffering from tooth loss for a while and sustained jawbone erosion, we offer mini dental implants. These require less jawbone to fuse with, which allows you to experience all of the benefits of implants without needing an invasive bone graft.
At Wauwatosa Dental Arts, we use the latest technology, including our cone beam CT scanner, to strategically and precisely plan out each of our dental implant surgeries. We’re able to complete the entire process in-office as well, which means that you won’t have to worry about traveling across town, and you can enjoy being treated by the same, trusted team of professionals that you started with. One of the best benefits about visiting us for this advanced treatment is that we never charge for a CT scan during this procedure either, because we’re committed to affordable, exceptional dentistry.
Cost of Treating Dental Implants
Although dental implants may have a higher price tag than traditional tooth replacement solutions, it’s important to consider the long-term investment that you’re making. Dental implants can last for over 35 years with the proper care; that’s over three times the lifespan of traditional bridges or dentures! When you factor in all of the unique benefits that this procedure offers and all the money that you’ll be saving by avoiding additional dental visits and replacement restorations, dental implants are actually the most cost-effective tooth replacement treatment you can choose.
