When you lose a tooth, the gap in your smile can make everyday tasks, like eating and speaking, painful and difficult.
At Czaplicki Family Dentistry, we can complete every stage of dental implant treatment from the convenience of our Milwaukee, WI, office.
So what makes dental implants such a great option for restoring missing teeth?
The Gold Standard in Tooth Replacement
Enhanced ComfortThe titanium or ceramic posts of dental implants are used to anchor restorations like dentures, preventing them from slipping during meals or casual conversation.
Improved Oral Health
Perhaps most importantly, implants can stop the bone loss that occurs after losing a tooth. Implants are the only modern dental treatment capable of providing this invaluable benefit.

Tooth Loss Is a Common Dental Issue
"Very friendly and helpful staff. Even being a bit nervous, I felt so comfortable with the patient, gentle hands of the dentists as I had some major repairs done." Rebecca Bores - 5-Star Facebook Review
We recommend implant dentistry for a range of issues...
Protect Your Jaw with Dental Implants
The roots of your natural teeth play a crucial role in maintaining the strength of your jawbone. After a tooth is lost, the bone tissue in your jaw begins to shrink, or atrophy. Left untreated, this issue can lead to further tooth loss and even affect the shape of your face. In fact, jawbone atrophy can actually make you look older than you are.
Titanium or ceramic implants effectively replace the missing tooth roots, preventing further bone atrophy, improving your jaw health, and keeping your facial features as youthful as possible.

Understanding Dental Implants
An implant-supported restoration has three parts: the implant, the abutment, and the restoration. The implant itself is a small titanium or ceramic post that acts as an artificial tooth root. The post then provides exceptional support for a crown, bridge, or denture. By replacing the entire structure of the tooth, an implant-supported restoration offers an unrivaled level of stability, comfort, and appearance.
Here's how implants fit into your smile...
We Use Advanced Technology for Excellent Results
At our Milwaukee, WI, practice, we use state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging tools to plan your treatment with dental implants. For example, all of our x-rays are performed digitally.
In addition, our ORTHOPHOS® SL 3D imaging system creates high-definition, panoramic views of your jaw, allowing us to identify the optimal positions for each implant.
When it comes to the implants themselves, we mostly use posts from the Astra Tech Implant System, one of the most reliable implant brands in the world.
While the treatment is lengthier than alternatives, receiving implants is an investment in your long-term oral health...
What to Expect During Treatment
For most patients, replacing teeth with dental implants requires multiple visits to our Milwaukee, WI, office and can take several months to complete. Our dentists will carefully plan your treatment to provide the most successful results possible.
Treatment is broken down into several distinct phases...
It takes an average of three to six months for implants to fully fuse with the jawbone.
Initial recovery takes only a few days...
Most Patients Return to Work Two to Three Days after Surgery
While it will take three to six months for your implants to completely integrate, the initial healing process is much shorter. You may experience swelling, bleeding, or discomfort for the first 48 hours or so after implant surgery.
During this time, you should:
- Avoid strenuous physical activity
- Use ice packs to reduce swelling
- Take all prescribed medications
- Be careful when brushing
Dr. Czaplicki can give you more detailed recovery instructions before your procedure so you can prepare for your recovery following surgery.
