Your oral health is extremely important to the functioning of your daily life. Anything from talking and eating to smiling can become a daily chore if your teeth and gums are suffering from decay or damage.
Our dentists offer a permanent solution to oral health issues in the form of dental implants. These implants include a surgical procedure that replaces the root of a tooth with a titanium rod and artificial teeth that not only restore your oral health but also improve the look and feel of your smile. Learn more about the process of our dental implant procedure, and reach out to our office staff for financing information as well as access to a consultation by our dentists in Metamora, IL.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are permanent artificial teeth that include a thin metal post with a screw-like attachment for artificial teeth to be fitted. Our dental implants help to preserve your natural jaw bones that can often be damaged when decay is present. The metal posts inserted into your jaw are made from 99% titanium and are crafted for each patient to ensure a natural and comfortable fit.
Once the root of your tooth has been extracted, our dentists will insert the rod and artificial tooth to provide you with a permanent solution that will restore and prevent further issues to your oral health. Contact us today to get a consultation regarding our dental implants.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are extremely beneficial for individuals that require a permanent solution to their oral health needs. When the root of a tooth becomes unrepairable, a metal post is surgically implanted in the jaw where artificial teeth are then screwed in. But how can dental implants benefit your oral health? Without a root to become infected, bacteria will not be able to fester on or inside the tooth, keeping your gums and smile healthy for a lifetime. While standard oral health maintenance such as teeth cleaning and daily brushing is necessary, our dental implants offer a natural-looking solution to your missing or decayed teeth. Some of the guaranteed benefits include:
What Is the Surgical Process of Dental Implants?
Our dentists have decades of experience providing successful dental implants to patients of all ages throughout the Metamora, IL area. The surgical process of a dental implant can take anywhere from 5 to 8 months from the initial evaluation to completion depending on the patient. This process is essentially done in three phases:
Artificial Root Replacement
Adding the Permanent Crown
The reason this process cannot be done in a few short visits is due to the need to preserve the jaw bone as much as possible while allowing the titanium rod (or root replacement) to become stable and work effectively. The final step of the crown placement is to ensure the longevity of the implant and protect it from bacteria and natural wear.
