Do you have missing teeth, a bridge that needs to be replaced or an uncomfortable or loose denture? Dental implants may help you get rid of a bridge, denture or gap in your smile. Smile once again without worrying about your loose denture falling out or seeing those ugly gaps! Dental implants replace a single tooth, many teeth on one side or support an entire fixed or removable bridge replacing all the upper or lower teeth for our guests in Chicago. The most common dental implant used today is the endosseous dental implant. We surgically place one or more dental implants in the bone replacing the missing teeth. Sometimes bone grafting is necessary for the long term health of the implant. After 3 months the bone grows onto the implant and stabilizes it. Then we securely fasten the crown, bridge or denture to the substructure or implant. Most restorations are not removable, just like your natural teeth.
