Missing teeth can make your day-to-day life awfully inconvenient. Many patients aren’t satisfied with traditional dentures, as they can be unsteady and messy. By contrast, dental implants deliver unmatched security and strength because they replace the entire lost tooth, from the root up through the crown. To find out whether you’re a good candidate for tooth replacement with dental implants in Naperville, IL, call us to schedule a complimentary dental implant consultation.
A dental implant is a biocompatible post that is inserted below the gumline to restore the root of a lost tooth. As you heal, the post integrates with your jawbone, giving it the strength and stability of a natural tooth root. We’ll place a tiny metal attachment, called an abutment, on top of your implant to secure your personalized crown, bridge, or denture and rebuild your smile.
Compared to traditional tooth replacements, dental implants offer the following advantages:
Most patients who are missing one or more teeth and are in good oral/general health make good candidates for dental implants. We can use this treatment to restore your smile no matter how many teeth you’ve lost.
One implant post can be placed into the gap and topped with a realistic dental crown. It prevents the adjacent teeth from drifting into the gap and causing problems down the road.
Rather than removing healthy tooth structure to place a dental bridge, we can anchor a bridge onto two implants that are placed at either end of the space in your smile. This creates extra stability and preserves more of your enamel.
To replace an entire arch of missing teeth, we can secure a full denture on top of four to eight implants throughout your jawbone. Implant-retained dentures eliminate embarrassing slippage and the need for messy denture adhesive.
Unlike many dental offices, we’re able to complete the entire dental implant process under one roof here in Naperville. You can stay with your trusted team of professionals throughout your whole treatment. Our highly trained periodontist will surgically place your implants, and once you’ve healed, your dentist will design and create your restoration to put the finishing touch on your new smile.
Several factors can contribute to the cost of dental implants, including the number of posts you need and whether you’ll require any preparatory work. We can only provide you with a cost estimate once we have examined your mouth and taken X-rays and a CT scan of your oral structures. During your consultation, our team can go over your personalized treatment plan, walk you through the payment details, and answer any questions you may have.
