Dental Implants Surgery in Chicago IL
When you have one or more missing teeth, consider dental implants. They represent the most advanced form of full-tooth restoration available. Implants look and feel like real teeth. Even more impressive, they function like real teeth. And at Northwestern Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons, you can feel confident that you are getting your implants done by a highly qualified oral surgeon.
Fixed bridges and removable dentures, older types of teeth replacement, are certainly not bad options. But they have drawbacks that you won’t have to contend with when you get our dental implants surgery in Chicago IL. Bridges require that your tooth on either side of it has to be drilled down, and a crown placed to hold in anchors that steady the bridge and make it more reliable. Dentures are held in with adhesive, which is messy and not 100% dependable. But implants require none of that. They are self-sustaining. That’s because they are constructed of three parts: a titanium post that is placed in your jaw; a support piece that is added later, and which assists in holding the tooth portion in place; and the tooth-colored crown that will be cemented to the post. Our dental implants surgery in Chicago IL will consist of the post placement. It stands in for your old tooth’s root. Over the course of several months, your jaw bone grows around the post and fuses with it. The support piece is added, and the crown is then placed for a complete implant. You will be able to speak and laugh without an ounce of worry. And you can chew your food; even the chewiest and crunchiest ones. Best of all, with proper care, there is every reason to expect that your implant will last for a long time, and maybe even for life.
The first step of our dental implants surgery in Chicago IL is a consultation and exam to make certain that you’re a good candidate for it. Call us today to schedule an appointment.
