Restorative Dentistry Saves Smiles with Realistic Implants

Dental implants are the best modern day solution for missing teeth. Small cylindrical titanium fixtures replace missing tooth roots and provide a stable base for replacement teeth that feel, function, and look like naturally beautiful teeth. Backed by almost 50 years of practical clinical research, Dental implants are the most reliable and long-lasting tooth replacement option boasting a 95% success rate.

At Total Care Dental, our local family dentists ensure the best results. Along with dental implants, we offer other restoration treatments including:

  • Resin fillings for cavities
  • Root canals
  • Dentures

Visit Total Care Dental for all your dentistry needs, from annual preventative checkups to cosmetic procedures.

Why Replacing Missing Teeth Protects Your Oral Health

Replacing a loose or missing tooth is not just a cosmetic issue. Losing one or several teeth affects your overall mouth health. Every one of your teeth is surrounded by alveolar bone in the jaw. If you lose a tooth and don’t have it replaced, the supporting bone will begin to degrade and melt away. The remaining teeth then begin to shift in order to fill the empty space. This causes bite alignment and aesthetic issues. Other facial structures such as your jaw, joints, muscles, and skin can be affected by a missing tooth.

This is why it’s important to replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth, as soon as possible. One way to prevent this is to have an implant take the lost tooth’s place, which may involve extracting a dying tooth to do it. Contact Total Care Dental to schedule a consultation if you have lost or are missing a permanent tooth.

How TCD Dental Implants Work 

Here is a step by step guide how your TCD dentist will replace your tooth:

  • First, they will install a titanium implant directly to the jaw bone where the tooth is missing.
  • Second, they’ll install a retaining screw in your implant which connects to an abutment connector.
  • Finally, a crown is installed on top of the abutment connector, giving the appearance of a natural tooth and improving your smile.

If you have lost a tooth and time has passed causing the loss of the alveolar bone, there is still hope for implants. Though the alveolar bone is gone for good once it decays, a skilled Madison cosmetic dentist can recreate the bone through grafting, producing the support needed for an implant. This procedure cannot be completed in one appointment. Once the implant is placed, it needs time to heal before a crown can be installed. It generally takes a few months to complete the implant process, but the results are worth it.


Dental Implants are the only dental treatment which:

  • Prevents soft tissue and bone loss
  • Provides natural tooth hygiene
  • Eliminates the need to reduce and compromise adjacent teeth

Frequently Asked Questions



Dental Implant Procedure Complications

Certain pre-existing medical conditions can complicate the implant process. Conditions like diabetes or hepatitis may make it harder to successfully install the new implant. Dental implants may still be possible depending on overall patient health. For people with these conditions, alternative treatment options will be recommended.

Implants vs Dentures: Alternative Treatment Options for Missing Teeth

There are other options for replacing missing teeth than implants. Full and partial dentures are mostly used to replace multiple teeth at a time and are removable. Dental bridges generally replace damaged teeth that have not yet fallen out, using the surrounding teeth to create a support system. Finally, our Four Life Changing Implants can replace all of your teeth in a single dental appointment.

These traditional options are right for some patients, though every case is unique. A consultation will review possible problems with comfort, aesthetics, stability, and longevity. The goal of our dentists is to give you replacement teeth which will positively impact your confidence, nutrition, and overall wellness. TCD dentists will walk you through all your choices to ensure you are getting the best benefits for your teeth. It is likely dental implants will be the best option for restoring your missing teeth.

Implants can replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, stabilize dentures, or even replace dentures completely with Four Life Changing Implants. Please tour our Before & After Dentistry Gallery and see why dental implants should be your preferred choice for modern-day tooth replacement.
