Des Plaines, IL Dentist
At Golf Glen Dentistry, we offer dental implants as a long-term solution for tooth loss. They are also used to secure partial or complete dentures as well as support for dental bridges.
Dental implants resemble natural teeth and can completely restore your smile and substantially improve your oral health. The implant replaces the root of the tooth, is made of titanium and placed into the bone. Once fused, two parts replacing the crown (false tooth) are secured on the implant. Implants have the same, dependable foundation as natural tooth roots. With placed implants, you will no longer have to experience discomfort in chewing, laughing or speaking.
Dental implants resemble natural teeth and can completely restore your smile and substantially improve your oral health. More advantages of dental implants include:
Improved oral health – Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.
Improved speech – With a removable device like dentures, teeth can slip within the mouth and can cause you to slur or mumble your words. A dental implant allows you to speak without the worry that teeth might slip.
Improved comfort – Dental implants remove the discomfort of removable dentures.
Improved chewing efficiency – Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat foods and chew just like with natural teeth.
Durability – With proper oral care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Our team will discuss tooth replacement options with you to help you make the most informed decision. We utilize modern technology to minimize any discomfort associated with receiving a dental implant. This allows for a very relaxed and comfortable experience, for even the most fearful patients.
There are many factors that our dentist will consider prior to recommending a dental implant, including: adequate bone support, healthy gum tissue, overall health, and sinus and nerve location.
