Your smile should last a lifetime, but accidents, wear and tear, and the status of your oral health may complicate things along the way. Dental implants are a smart choice for tooth replacement, and dentist, Dr. Dan Adamo of Randall Oaks Dental in Carpentersville, IL, is dedicated to providing his patients with the smile they've always dreamed of.
Missing teeth are not only embarrassing, but your mouth and facial structure can deteriorate when left untreated. When a person is missing many or all of their teeth, the face can begin to sag and experience other changes. When this happens, your dentist in Carpentersville, IL, can help you look and feel better with dental implants.
Dental implants are designed to look, fit, and feel like natural teeth. Once placed in the mouth, you won't have to worry about them. With proper maintenance, dental implants will last decades, as opposed to dentures, which may need to be replaced in about 5-10 years.
A dental implant resembles a small tooth root. It most often takes the form of a small, screw-shaped titanium post that replaces the root-part of a missing tooth. During a minor surgical procedure, the dental implant is placed directly into the jawbone and left to heal for a few months before a final crown is attached.
Other advantages of dental implants include:
- Self-esteem and confidence boost
- Revamped ability to eat and chew
- Improved quality of speech
- Polished facial and bone features
- Natural aesthetic and comfortable fit
Dental implants have many advantages and provide long-term value over other tooth replacement methods. If you have questions or concerns regarding dental implants, give us a call.
