If you’re looking for a tooth replacement solution that rivals all others, dental implants in Chicago are exactly what you’re looking for. They restore the entire tooth’s structure, including the roots. This allows them to not only look and feel completely natural, but also offer a wide array of benefits that distinguish them from traditional prosthetics like dental bridges and dentures. You can learn more about dental implants and whether you’re a good candidate for this procedure by calling our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Patel and our team.
Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically inserted below the gumline and into the jawbone. They’re biocompatible, allowing them to fuse with the bone over time through a process called osseointegration, just like your natural teeth once were. This allows them to offer a strong and sturdy foundation for your replacement teeth to be attached to. They’re also able to continue supporting the bone structure, keeping the bone from deteriorating over time from not being used.
This procedure offers countless benefits to patients, which is why it’s so popular. Some of the advantages that you’ll be able to enjoy by investing in dental implants over traditional restorative procedures include:
The best way to find out whether dental implants can help you is to schedule a consultation with our team at Pure Dental Spa. We’ll thoroughly examine your mouth, discuss your medical history with you, and determine your oral goals. Based on what you let us know and what we observe, we’ll be able to make treatment recommendations to you. Most patients who are missing one or more teeth are able to receive dental implants. However, there are certain situations in which we may suggest a traditional restoration instead. If you’re a candidate, we’ll walk you through how we plan to restore your smile.
For one missing tooth, we’ll place a single dental implant below the gumline and into the jawbone. After it has fused with the bone, we’ll secure an abutment to the top of it. Then, finally, we’ll place a customized dental crown on the implant to fill the gap in your smile.
Instead of needing to alter the structure of your existing teeth by receiving a traditional bridge, we can secure your replacement teeth to two dental implants that we place at either side of the gap in your smile.
To secure a full denture to your mouth, we can place anywhere from four to eight dental implants along your arch. This will keep it from slipping or shifting in your mouth. We can also secure a partial denture with a specific number of implants, depending on how many teeth you’re missing and their locations within your mouth.
All-on-4 dental implants allow our team to secure a complete denture to four implants that are strategically inserted into the strongest, thickest areas of your jawbone at an angle. This is a great option for patients who want dental implants, but don’t want to have to undergo bone grafting beforehand, which can take months to heal from.
The process of getting dental implants is different for each patient depending on their unique tooth loss situation. We’ll walk you through the cost of your procedure once we’ve determined some cost-defining factors, like how many dental implants you need to have placed, the location of your missing teeth, what type of restoration you need to restore your smile, and whether you require preparatory procedures. If you have any questions at all, don’t hesitate to ask our team.
