Dental Implants in Wauwatosa

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants are used to replace a missing tooth and prevent common issues related to tooth loss such as shifting teeth, bone and gum loss, and other dental problems. When a tooth is missing, often the most natural way to replace it is by using a dental implant. This treatment option is a permanent solution for missing teeth, and is becoming the standard of care for tooth loss.

Why Choose A Dental Implant?

The process of dental implant placement usually takes two appointments. During your first appointment, Dr. McCue uses a CT scan to create a 3D image of your jaw, and select the best site for your dental implant.

Then, your mouth will be numbed and cleaned. A small opening is made in the gum, and the implant(s) is placed in the proper position. The gum is sutured, and you’ll be sent home with a temporary crown to protect it while it heals. During this time, your implant restoration will be built.

After the implant has healed and integrated with your gum and jaw, you’ll come back for your second appointment, and Dr. McCue will place your final implant restoration. You’ll leave our office with a beautiful, new replacement tooth.

  • Dental implants bond to your jaw and gum tissue – A dental implant integrates with your gum and jaw through a process called “osseointegration”, strengthening and protecting the surrounding tissue.
  • Durable and long-lasting – Dental implants can last 30 years or longer, with proper care, making them the most cost-effective choice for restoring a tooth.
  • Natural look and feel – Dental implants are made specifically to match your natural teeth. They fit in seamlessly with the rest of your smile and they feel completely natural when you’re chewing, speaking, and smiling.
  • No special care required – Brush and floss normally, and see Dr. McCue for your six-month teeth cleaning and oral exam. That’s all you have to do to keep your implant in great shape!

    Your Options for Implant Restoration 

    The most common implant restoration is a dental crown. This crown is attached to one dental implant, replacing a single missing tooth. However, two dental implants can be used to support a dental bridge, which can restore two or more missing teeth. Further still, 4-6 dental implants can be used to support a full arch of dentures, and replace an entire arch of missing teeth.
