Benefits of Dental Implants
Patients who undergo dental implant surgery not only improve their appearance, they also leave our office with stronger, healthier and beautiful smiles.
Implants fill in gaps left by missing teeth, restoring the look of a complete, attractive smile. With implants you will be able to smile and present yourself to the world more confidently without worrying about unattractive gaps in your mouth. Implants also restore the ability to chew, allowing you to eat with ease. Filling in gaps left by missing teeth also reduces the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, promoting good oral health. And because implants are placed in the jawbone, they help stimulate the bone to prevent it from shrinking and deteriorating. This in turn helps maintain a normal-looking facial appearance.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically connected to your jawbone. They are artificial tooth roots designed to support dental restorations that replace missing teeth. Considered to be the most long-lasting solution to missing teeth, dental implants restore a patient’s ability to chew, speak and smile confidently.
Dental Implant Candidacy
You may be a suitable candidate for dental implants in Western Springs if you:
- Have one or more missing teeth
- Are in good general health
- Find dentures uncomfortable
- Have enough jawbone to support the implant
- Do not suffer from a chronic illness that could interfere with the healing process
Candidacy for dental implants is determined on a case-by-case basis with Dr. Tanquilut. The dentist can design a customized treatment plan for your teeth following a thorough examination of your mouth and discussion of your dental concerns.
Types of Dental Implants
Depending on your needs, dental implants can replace one tooth, several teeth or all of the teeth in the lower and/or upper jaw. Each dental implant will be customized to fit the unique specifications of your mouth. To ensure your smile looks as natural as possible, we will carefully craft your dental implant to match the size, shape and color of your natural teeth.
Single-tooth implants consist of a dental crown attacked to an implant post. The post is surgically inserted into the jawbone and the crown is placed on top of the gums.
Implant-supported bridges replace several teeth and some tooth roots.
Implant-supported dentures replace an entire arch of teeth in the lower and/or upper jaw. Dentures can be fixed or removable, depending on your needs.
We are excited to have added ceramic implants, a metal-free option, to our dental restoration portfolio. Ceramic implants help those patients that have concerns about metals or have a metal allergy. Patients that have multiple sensitivities may be suitable candidates for ceramic implants.
