Dental Implants in Lincoln Park, Lakeview, & Chicago

Dental implants are a great option for people who have fully lost one or more teeth. Whether you have lost teeth due to gingivitis, tooth decay, or something else entirely, dental implants could be the perfect option for you. Unlike tooth bonding or dental fillings, implants are for when there is no tooth structure left. As they are replacement tooth roots, they provide a strong foundation for the replacement tooth or teeth that the dentist places. Due to the nature of the implant, they are more permanent than other options, such as dentures.


What To Expect

Unless you are a heavy smoker or have a chronic disease that is not controlled, such as diabetes, you ought to be cleared for the dental implant procedure if you have healthy gums. Dental implants take multiple steps and is somewhat of a long process. Once you have spoken with your dentist/oral surgeon, a specific treatment plan will be put in place. The first step is to have the physical tooth root implant placed, where it is anchored throughout the jawbone healing process. Once you are healed, abutments will be placed where you will be receiving replacement teeth.

In the first steps of the process, the dentist will have made a mold that the teeth are based on. After the abutment is placed, the crown, or the replacement tooth/teeth, is fitted to your mouth. If you would feel more comfortable using the implants for dentures, our dentists can also do that. Luckily, receiving dental implants tend to be a relatively pain-free procedure. We use local anesthetic and you can use ice to help with minor swelling.


While the procedure is a longer process than some, the benefits are abundant. First is that with dental implants, they feel like your teeth. They are the same color as your teeth, are as permanent as actual teeth, and are much more comfortable than alternatives. The improved appearance will amaze you, as will the convenience of once again having a full set of teeth. Not only will you have greater self-esteem, but you will also have better oral health. Other options include altering your remaining teeth, which compromises your oral health. In addition, implants allow for easier maintenance. As long as you are brushing and flossing daily and see your dentist for regular check-ups, you ought to have your dental implants for the rest of your life.
