Digging into tooth replacement options for your missing tooth or teeth may seem difficult or confusing. However, with dental implants, you can replace your teeth permanently and restore your smile to what it was before your missing teeth. Find out more about dental implants with your dentist at Bolingbrook Dental Care in Bolingbrook, IL.
Facts About Dental Implants
- Dental implants are permanent. Thanks to their design, dental implants integrate permanently into the bone in which they are placed. Successful and permanent integration is crucial in providing a strong foundation for the replacement tooth. While the replacement tooth may need maintenance over the years, the implant itself will last a lifetime.
- Dental implants help restore your smile aesthetically and functionally. One of the most obvious benefits of dental implants is the full, gap-free smile they provide. However, they also restore the biting surface of a tooth which, in some cases, can help relieve the symptoms of conditions like TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder. Implants can also help reverse the side effects of missing teeth like sagging facial skin. Implants also provide the stimulation the jawbone requires to stay healthy and prevent bone atrophy.
- Dental implants are versatile. Dental implants can replace one, many, or all of your teeth. However, an implant for every tooth is not always necessary. For example, replacing all of your teeth requires the help of only four to six implants which hold an implant-supported denture in place. Replacing three teeth in a row requires only two implants on either side to anchor down the bridge.
- Dental implants are a natural-looking tooth replacement option. A dental laboratory customizes each replacement tooth which will eventually cover your dental implant. The lab also takes the restoration’s color into account, carefully matching it to your natural teeth. This ensures a natural look which will blend in with your smile flawlessly. Your implants will feel, function and look just like natural teeth.
