Dental Implants in Kenosha, WI
One of Dr. Pat Crawford’s famous specialties is dental implants. For the best results, we use Bicon Dental Implants placed after immediately after an extraction and/or during the same appointment. Five months later, we put the crown on. That’s 90% of dental implants. With our Bisco oven we can restore the Bicon and 3M implants with a crown that we make in-house. We can do a full mouth reconstruction with just four implants. If the bone is already healed and there is no extraction, we can also just do mini-implants created by 3M. This allows the Dr. to place a crown immediately after the implant. Thus, you can get an implant in one sitting. The mini-implants also stabilize loose dentures by placing rubber o-rings in the denture and implants into the bones. Think about it like a trailer hitch: the ball locks into the hole (o-ring). The mini-stabilized dentures are created by Glidewell Dental Labs in California.

Kenosha Dental Implant Dentist
The dentist can be a source of fear and even embarrassment for many people. The feeling that someone is going to scold you for not taking care of your teeth, or worse, tell you that you are going to have to have one teeth pulled is difficult for many people to hear. If you have already lost a tooth, then the embarrassment could be worse. Even if the tooth loss is from an accident, many people are still hesitant to see a dentist to get it repaired.
But there are many reasons why you may need a tooth pulled. Often times, there is nothing you could have done to avoid it. Remember, dental implants say nothing about you as a person or about your personal hygiene. Regardless of your reasons, Pat Crawford DDS in Kenosha, WI should be the first call you make.
What are Dental Implants?
Otherwise known as a ″root″ device, dental implants are used to secure your replacement tooth into place on your jaw. On the outside it looks like a screw that will be firmly affixed to your jawbone. This screw is made of medical grade material to ensure that the human body will not reject it. From there, a crown can be attached to the top of the screw. The jaw itself doesn’t have any nerves, making this procedure nearly painless. You may feel some pressure on the mouth, but that can be taken care of with ice or anti-inflammatory medication. Once the implant is in place, it should remain there for life. Implants are a permanent solution to your dental problems, so you should make sure that you research your dentist before making your appointment. Dentists should have many years of experience in the industry and be knowledgeable about the technology and techniques used. Don’t settle for someone if you don’t feel safe with them.
Why Bicon Dental Implants?
The Bicon Dental Implant is a unique root implant system that started development in 1985. When it first came out on the market, the Bicon implant was by far the shortest implant available. Other screw type implants were up to two times longer and thus took a longer time to insert. To this day, Bicon implants are the shortest available to dentistry. The shorter implants take less time to install and afford you as a patient less trauma to your mouth. This makes recovery time easier and the general discomfort far shorter. Since then, Bicon has continued to revolutionize dental implants. These implants also have a special plateau design that allow them to settle into your jaw easily and result in a more natural looking final product. A good final look is also helped by the bacterially-sealed locking taper. The implant conforms to the way your jaw sits so the tooth will not look out of place.
Cost of Dental Implants?
Generally, implants cost around $1500. But to get the best pricing on dental implants, please visit us for a free consultation. Usually, when you need implants, you also need an extraction and a crown, so we need to have the doctor look at you first before giving you an exact price on how much dental implants will cost.
