What are dental implants?
Dental implants are used to replace one or more missing teeth, using a combination of a metal post and an artificial tooth. The post is secured into the jawbone, which regrows around it to hold it securely in place. An artificial tooth, tinted, sized, and shaped to match the surrounding teeth, is affixed to the top.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
- Convenience: Dental implants are permanent, so they are treated just like your normal teeth. While dentures need to be taken out at night and cleaned separately, you can brush and floss as usual with dental implants.
- Appearance: Dentures have come a long way in appearing more natural, but dental implants are the most discreet option. Because they are secured to the jaw and the artificial tooth is crafted to blend in with your natural teeth, there is no visible indication it isn't real.
- Comfort: You will find dental implants from our Lincolnshire, IL, office to feel natural. Because they are permanent, no shifting will occur. By filling the void from your missing tooth, dental implants will also make it easier and more comfortable to bite, chew, brush, and floss.
- Health: When a tooth is missing, space can become a home for bacteria and infection, which can spread to the surrounding teeth and damage your gums. Filling that space with an implant offers protection from infection and decay.
