Could Dental Implants Help Me?
Learn how these tooth replacements can give you back that healthy smile.
You have options when it comes to how you treat your tooth loss, so don’t feel defeated if this happens to you. Dental implants offer a long term tooth replacement option. If you have a dental implant and are having issues with your restoration, our Glenview dentists can help restore your smile. Find out more about how dental implants work and how we can help.
What are dental implants?
These small titanium posts are designed to act just like tooth roots and are placed into the jawbone. Since these implants are biocompatible they actually meld together with bone and tissue to become a fixed, permanent foundation from which to hold a dental crown or even a full set of dentures.
One implant can be used to replace a single tooth or a series of implants can be embedded to secure a full set of dentures into place. Dental implants give you peace of mind that your dentures won't slip or move out position while eating.
While dental implants are a bit more expensive upfront than other dental restorations like bridges or dentures, they are worth the wait. Though dental implants are a long-term tooth replacement option, you do need to be dedicated to caring for and maintaining your restoration for the rest of your life. They are meant to last a long time, but there are still issues that can arise with implants. The crown or the visible portion of the dental implant can become damaged or fractured just like natural teeth. If these happens, we can assist in restoring your dental implant by fixing or replacing the crown, thus restoring the look and function of your smile.
