Chicago Dental Implants
Implants are the great option for people who are missing permanent teeth. Unlike dentures or bridges, dental implants are long-term replacement teeth that are surgically placed in the jawbone. Implants are made of titanium metal, which fuses with the bone.
Dental implants are composed of three parts: the titanium implant that is placed into the jaw, the abutment, which attaches to the exposed part of the implant, and the crown which is fitted onto the abutment to replace the missing tooth. Implants help preserve remaining natural bone structure and support face, shape, and smile, eliminates the need for removable partial or full dentures, look and feel like natural teeth. Check with one of our doctors in Portage Park Dental if you are a good candidate. We specialize in Dental Implants in Chicago.
During the initial consultation, our dentist will assess your x-rays to determine whether you have sufficient bone density to support an implant and if your sinus cavity is high enough. Doctor will review your dental history to check if your medical conditions will prohibit the successful integration of the implant to your bone. Lifestyle factors like smoking will prevent most people from achieving successful implants.
