A Chicago dentist explains the dental implant surgery process

Dental Implant Surgery Chicago

Dental implants are one of the top requested dental procedures to restore a missing tooth, or to help stabilize dentures. Implants restore teeth from the roots to the crown. There are other ways to restore teeth, but the results are not always permanent, and may have other detrimental effects. In the cases of bridges and crowns, the bone mass of the jaw deteriorates because of lack of stimulation from tooth roots. This affects the lines of the face as the bone disappears. The implant itself is a small titanium rod that replaces the tooth root, and serves to transmit the … Continue reading

Chicago residents, read about a real tooth vs. an implant tooth

Real teeth vs. implant teeth, which are better? Real teeth, that is, the permanent set of teeth, have been around since the tooth fairy whisked away the final baby tooth and left the last bit of change. Most adults have their permanent set of real teeth, which are strong, resilient, durable, and beautiful. However, they can be subject to disease, accident, and other forms of damage and loss. Dental implants are used to replace those real teeth that have been lost due to those reasons. They are also made to be as close in form and function as possible to … Continue reading

Chicago dentist explains that teeth implants work just like real teeth

A tooth is made of many different parts and the dental implant procedure takes this feature into account to produce the most natural looking and natural functioning tooth replacement option available. Each of your teeth have different functions. For instance, the pointy canine teeth are designed to tear food. The wide molars at the back of the mouth grind food so it can be swallowed and digested properly. The relationship between the teeth, tongue, and lips helps you speak properly, which is why people who lose their teeth may develop a lisp or other problems with how words are pronounced. … Continue reading

Happy Dental Patient

Happy patient Dental implant-supported teeth are designed to last just as long as you do! After all, these new teeth rebuild extracted teeth from the root up. The dental implant itself is the tooth root, while the crown is the white part everyone sees above your gums. These two pieces are joined by a connector or abutment. Before the implant is even placed, Big Smile Dental staff will discuss factors that may affect the long-term success and lifespan of the new tooth. For instance, the negative effects of nicotine in cigarettes and chewing tobacco is well documented, but did you … Continue reading

Fill the gap with the best approach to Dental Implants in Chicago

By now, you may be aware of some of the benefits of dental implants – very different from the longtime “go-to” options of dentures and bridges.
