Chicago IL Dental Implants
Would you like to restore your full smile again? If you have one or more missing teeth, we at Northwestern Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, PC can make it easy for you with our Chicago IL dental implants. They look, feel, and act just like real teeth, giving you tremendous flexibility, especially when it comes to eating. You can have even the toughest, chewiest, or crunchiest foods with 100% confidence.
Fixed bridges and partial removable dentures, the most traditional of full-tooth restorations, are designed to replace only the teeth above your gum surface. That’s certainly fine for cosmetic purposes, but with our Chicago IL dental implants, you get a solution that puts back not only your tooth, but the root beneath it. Therefore, you have a strong and dependable foundation. Also, your natural facial contours are preserved, and your gum and bone tissue will not atrophy. If all of that makes you think that implants are very complicated to get, let us assure you that it’s not. There are three basic steps involved. First, you will have the root replacement, in the form of a titanium post, inserted surgically into your jaw. There is then a period of a few months during which your jaw bone grows around the post, and then fuses with it. You will be able to wear a temporary denture as you wait, however. A small anchor is then added to the post. This will serve to hold our Chicago IL dental implants in place with even greater reliability. And the final stage is having impressions taken so that the dental lab can make you a tooth-colored crown that will fit you precisely. This crown is then cemented to the post and held in with the anchor. The result is a tooth that is the equal of the other teeth you have in your mouth.
