What is a Dental Implants ?
Dental implants are made of titanium. Since the body accepts this type of metal, the implants will simply fuse tightly to your jaw bone and work the way natural teeth would.
The abutment is the component that sticks up though your gums so the crown has a place to sit.
The crown is the visible component of dental implants – the part that looks and functions like an actual tooth and sits on the abutment.

Single and Multiple Missing Teeth in West Allis
Whether it was an injury, tooth decay or periodontal disease that caused you to lose your tooth, Dr. Eslami can replace it quickly with dental implants.
Patients who need a tooth replaced are choosing dental implants over conventional treatments with Dr. Ahmad Eslami for a variety of good reasons:
- Dental Implants look natural.
- Dental implants are made of titanium, which the body accepts. This allows the dental implants to fuse smoothly with the jaw bone (called osseointegration).
- Dental implants fall right in step with the rest of a patient’s natural teeth and roots.
- Dental implants are strong, durable and rarely need replacing except possibly the crown.
- Dental implants make eating and talking second nature.
- Dental implants are easy to take care of – just regular flossing, brushing and dental checkups.
Multiple Missing Teeth in West Allis
Comparing Dental Implants To A Traditional Dental Bridge
A conventional partial bridge was frequently the treatment of choice for multiple missing teeth. Not anymore says West Allis periodontist Dr. Ahmad Eslami. Here’s why:
- Bridges, which require existing teeth to function as supports, are structured in ways that are damaging to the natural teeth.
- The wear and tear of bridges can even cause more tooth loss, according to studies.
- Dental bridges do not stimulate the jaw bone, resulting in its deterioration over time.
- Bone loss can lead to flaccid, sagging facial muscles.
Dental Implants: A Better Way To Replace Missing Teeth
West Allis Periodontist Dr. Eslami invites you to consider titanium-made dental implants instead. Dental implants are body-compatible, which means they integrate right into the bone for a tight, lasting fit. Dental implants also mimic real teeth roots that constantly stimulate the jaw to keep bone and facial muscles active and healthy. Patients who have dental implants never worry that their teeth are going to slip or move. Eating and speaking comes naturally. And dental implants from Dr. Eslami are so easy to take care of – they just need regular flossing, brushing and dental checkups.
