Dental implants are wonderful in that we can replace a tooth, not touch the teeth on either side, not do anything to cause a loss of function with the other teeth there. A dental implant is put in place, it stays in place. People are not conscious of the fact that it isn't their original other tooth. It feels just the same. Cosmetically, we can do wonderful things. By using an implant or combination of implants, we can replace many teeth that are there and they stay in. You don't take them out at night.
It's a way to make new teeth where there were none. It's revolutionary. It's amazing that we can replace teeth. People will have had teeth missing for years—decades—and then they have teeth that are in place and the change in their life is great.
I had a gentleman who had a tooth that fractured, one of his front teeth, and he didn’t—he was young enough he didn't want to go around taking something out, removing it. He wanted something that he would put in and stay in. We put a tooth in there. It looks great. He chews on it. He is not aware of it. He has no inkling it's any different than the others other than he knows that that's the one that I put in for him. It's wonderful. He's thrilled. That's why we do this, to solve problems for people.

Dental Implant Options At Weddell Dental
Dental implants are posts that slip beneath your gumline to bond with your jawbone for a tight hold. Above the gumline, your dental implants will look and feel just like a natural tooth. Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants can actually stop or slow bone loss and even encourage regrowth. Dr. Weddell offers:
- All-on-4 and All-on-6 – Allow Dr. Weddell to replace an entire arch of missing teeth with as few as four or six dental implants for a shorter, less invasive procedure and a quicker recovery.
- Implant-retained and implant-supported dentures – Give your dentures a more secure hold by letting us attach them to a few implants.
- Immediate implant placement – With Dr. Weddell, there may not have to be a time gap between when your tooth is extracted and your dental implant is placed.
To be an ideal candidate for dental implant treatment, your jawbone must meet certain density requirements. Bloomington, MN dentist, Dr. Weddell can examine your jawbone during your consultation. If you’re not a good fit for implants, there are other options for replacing your teeth, including traditional dentures and dental bridges.
