Is eating something you don’t look forward to anymore due to pain while you chew? Are your missing teeth causing you to avoid areas of your mouth while you try to enjoy a meal? Let Dr. Wilhelm and his staff at Mark W. Wilhelm, DMD, MSD help you get back to loving the food you eat.
Eating is an activity that we have to engage in to live, but it is also a time for us to share moments with those we care about. A meal is a time to bond, tell stories, and be in the moment with people we value. Pain while eating will take all of that away and leave you with an experience that is more of a chore and less of an enjoyable time. Missing a tooth from your smile or dealing with a damaged tooth that needs to be replaced are two reasons you may be feeling pain while you are trying to eat your food. Let Dr. Wilhelm and his team at Mark W. Wilhelm, DMD, MSD help you bring the joy back to your meals.
Dental implants are one of the most trusted tooth replacement options available. There are several ways that these wonders of modern dentistry can help your smile.
- Single Tooth Replacement – A single tooth replacement consists of one implant and one restorative crown. The crown will fit your unique smile perfectly and blend with the rest of your teeth.
- All-on-4 – When you want to replace your whole arch of teeth but don’t want dentures, All-on-4 is an alternative option you may consider. With the only four dental implants, Dr. Wilhelm can give you a full ceramic restoration to replace your lost teeth and get you back to the dinner table with a secure smile.
- Implant-Retained Dentures – Dentures have been trusted to replace a full dental arch for many years, and now we can offer the stability and support of dental implants to go along with them. Ball attachments placed on the implants connect to receptacles on your denture, locking your teeth into place in your mouth.
- Implant-Supported Dentures – This option uses a bar running along the implants that attaches underneath the denture to lock it into position. You will have a secure feel while you eat with the help of implants holding your dentures in place.
- Implant-Supported Bridge – This option helps those who have lost three or more teeth fill the gap without needing a partial denture. You gain superior stability and protection from bone deterioration with dental implants.
