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!
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 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.
Who benefits from implants?
Implants benefit patients in Chicago who can’t wear conventional dentures. Also, patients in Chicago who lost a tooth and have two teeth with no or small fillings adjacent to the hole and don’t want to cut the teeth down to make a bridge, would also make good candidates.
