Losing a tooth damages the patient’s smile both aesthetically and functionally. Prompt, effective tooth replacement can help you bounce back from premature tooth loss, and reclaim an attractively whole smile.
In the world of restorative dentistry, few advancements have been as impactful as innovations in dental implant technology. As dental implant technology has progressed, our Orland Park dental team has been able to restore patients’ smiles more quickly and effectively than ever before.
The key attribute of dental implant technology is that these replacement teeth actually replace the patient’s dental root as well as the visible dental crown. Traditional tooth replacement treatments, like dentures and bridges, only replaced the top portion of the tooth.
Because dental implant technology allows our team to replace the dental root:
· The replacement tooth stays in place permanently—you don’t have to worry about your new tooth shifting around or falling out
· The natural bone tissue around the dental implant is supported, and is thus less likely to deteriorate and recede
· Patients find that it is exceptionally comfortable and natural-feeling to eat and speak
· You’ll be able to clean and care for your replacement tooth just as you maintain your smile now
Initially, dental implant roots were used to secure single, individual dental restorations. Now, however, you have options when it comes to employing dental implant technology. Our team, for example, can use a few strategically-placed dental implant roots to secure larger dental prostheses like dentures. Once these prostheses are in place, they are permanently attached, and exceptionally intuitive to care for!
