How are dental implants fitted? First, our Chicago dentists
will place a strong synthetic material into the tooth socket, allowing it to take the place of the root. Once that anchor is in place, it serves as the foundation to hold a new artificial tooth or dental bridge. No one will know that you have dental implants as you walk with confidence through Chicago. Dental implants are incredible natural looking. They essentially replace the structure of the tooth from the bottom up, allowing good candidates to have a totally new tooth fill in a gap.
What type of dental implant is right for you?
When you consider dental implants, the first thing to think about is how big the problem area is. Do you need to replace an entire line of teeth, or just a small area that's been damaged over time? Is there just a single tooth that's bothering you? Dental implants are very versatile and can be adapted to cover almost any area.
Full upper replacement:
your dentist will use dental implants to completely replace all upper teeth with new, synthetic teeth. All missing tooth roots will be replaced with implants.
Full lower replacement:
we will replace all of your lower teeth, using essentially the same procedure as for a full upper replacement. Chicago dental implants will be used to anchor all missing teeth.
this refers to replacing easily accessible and visible front teeth with dental implants. In Chicago, Big Smile Dental will fill in the root area and then attach replacement teeth. This type of replacement can be performed for a single tooth, or for a number of teeth. Your treating Big Smile dentist in Chicago will evaluate your particular needs and design implants accordingly.
- Posterior replacement: this type of replacement is as customizable as anterior replacement, but refers to the larger teeth in the back of the mouth. Here again, your Big Smile dentist in Chicago will evaluate your individual situation, determining whether one tooth needs to be replaced, or a larger row needs implants.
