Dental Implant Services
If you are missing teeth, you may have come to the conclusion that crowns and conventional bridges or dentures are your only options for repair. At Dental Professionals, we're excited to offer a more progressive and natural option in tooth replacement. Dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural.
A dental implant is a small titanium screw or cylinder which is surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone. The implant replaces the root of the missing tooth, providing an anchor for your new tooth / teeth. Dental implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the dental implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes. Dental implants can also be placed to anchor and support partial or full dentures, eliminating the need for dental adhesives. Dentures can be supported with either a bar/clip or ball/socket attachment for removal, allowing for regular cleaning.
State-of-the-art dental implant technology provides predictable, comfortable, and esthetic results allowing high quality eating, speaking, and smiling. Chewing and speech problems caused by missing teeth may be restored or improved. You'll be able to eat foods you previously avoided. Best of all, an increased confidence in your smile allows you to enjoy an active lifestyle. That's why many people choose dental implants over other procedures. The result is a natural appearance that is intended to be permanent.
Candidates need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by a Chicago dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate.
