If you are suffering from tooth loss, our Orland Park dentists are here to help you reclaim the strong and healthy smile that you need. In order to restore your smile, we’ll need to choose a tooth replacement option that suits your needs. For many dental patients, the dental implant is the ideal replacement tooth.
The dental implant is superior to many other tooth replacement treatments, because the dental implant replaces every part of the tooth. Let me explain…
Traditional replacement teeth, like dentures and dental bridges, only replace the top—visible portion—of the tooth. These replacement teeth sit on top of the patient’s gum tissue.
The dental implant, on the other hand, replaces the visible and submerged portion of the tooth. Every dental implant has, as its base, a titanium root that sits in the patient’s jawbone. This portion of the dental implant replaces the natural tooth root.
As a result of this innovative titanium base, a dental implant:
· Stays in place 24/7
· Helps to preserve the patient’s natural bone tissue, thus preserving healthy jawbone density
· Does not put additional strain on your adjacent, healthy teeth
· Looks and feels exceptionally natural for the patient, even when eating and speaking
· Is simple to care for—you’ll need to brush and floss as normal, as well as follow any additional oral hygiene recommendations that your dentist may have for you
With proper care dental implants can last for decades before they need to be refurbished. Plus, every dental implant is completely customized to fit the specific patient’s needs.
So give our Tinley Park dental implant dentist office a call to get started rejuvenating your smile. The sooner that you seek treatment, the better your long-term oral health prognosis. We look forward to speaking with you!
