Treating Loose or Lost Teeth
Prevention is key, but good treatment is available with Dr. Stevens or Dr. Dan Stevens for patients who already have loose teeth. If you have gum disease, he can treat your condition with state of the art laser technology and other procedures that eradicate bacteria to improve the health and function of your teeth. If loose teeth cannot be saved, Dr. Stevens can replace them with dental implants in Madison, WI.
Dental implants are as close as you can get to having real teeth. They are placed in the jaw, which keeps it stimulated and healthy in the same way that real tooth roots do. Implant crowns look as real and function as well as natural teeth. Since implants need bone to support them, patients with bone loss may need to have a dental procedure that will increase bone density prior to having implants placed. Dental implants are also a good way to keep dental bridges and dentures more stable.
