If you have one or more missing teeth, our implant dentist in Rogers Park can restore them using a replacement that looks, feels, and acts just like one of your natural teeth do. With several impressive advantages over bridges or dentures, implants from Family Care Dental Group will give you back your full smile.
Even though implants are often done for cosmetic purposes, there are good reasons to get them that have nothing to do with appearance. When a tooth is missing, the other ones on that aw can shift, causing discomfort and a misaligned bite (occlusion). Also, your gum and bone tissue can erode in that empty space where the tooth used to be. Our implant dentist in Rogers Park will not only replace the tooth, but also the root. That’s something that bridges and dentures do not offer. Not only are your bone and gum tissue preserved as a result, but so are your normal facial contours. Unlike with a fixed bridge, your surrounding teeth will not be negatively affected. And you won’t have to deal with any messy adhesives as with partial dentures. A simple exam and consultation will determine your suitability for implants. Your jaw bone will need to be thick enough to support the implant post and your gums should be in basically healthy condition. Factors such as being diabetic or a smoker could play a role in whether or not you’re a good candidate for one. Our implant dentist in Rogers Park will surgically place the titanium post in your jaw. Over several months, your jaw bone will grow around the post and fuse with it, creating a durable bond. A tooth-colored crown is then cemented on top.
You can depend on your new implant to last a long time, even for life with proper care. Schedule an appointment. Call us today.
