What in the World are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace a single missing tooth, several missing teeth, or to provide support for a loose fitting denture. A dental implant has three distinct parts that replace the root and crown structure of a missing tooth. Dental implants are made of biocompatible titanium alloys which are accepted well by the body. In fact, according to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, dental implants enjoy an average 95% success rate.  We invite you to scroll through our dental implant education pages to help you learn more about this innovative procedure:

Advantages Offered by Dental Implants

There are many advantages to using dental implants to restore missing dentition. Once placed successfully, implants usually last a lifetime with proper care. The dental implant treatment provides dramatic improvements in function as well as esthetics. This will allow you to eat and speak freely, giving you more confidence and self-esteem in social situations. Although the dental implant placement procedure is a long process requiring several appointments, the longevity and remarkable look and performance of the end result justifies the time and money invested.

Your personalized dental implant treatment plan will be discussed with you as well as pricing. This can be done for anyone thinking of having implants to replace a missing tooth, secure a loose fitting denture, or replace multiple teeth.

Implant-Secured Dentures

Your Park Ridge implant dentist offers a revolutionary solution for patients with loose fitting dentures. Dental implants offer an ideal way to secure a loose fitting denture. This procedure is simple. 2-4 implants are placed in the lower or upper jaw. Then the denture is modified to fit over them while healing. After 2-4 months your dentist attached to the denture to the implants using precise attachments to provide dramatically increased bite strength and retention for chewing and smiling confidently.
