As much as people try to keep their natural teeth intact for their entire life, it is often not possible. People do lose teeth from advanced decay, gum disease, accidents and more. There is little doubt that missing teeth make it tough to eat and talk and they make the person extremely self conscious of their appearance. If one or more teeth are left untreated for long, the adjoining teeth move into the void and can cause facial changes.
For people that have this situation there is good news, dental implants in Glenview are a very viable solution. Why is this?
It is a simple procedure:
Dental implants have been used for over 50 years; the two step process has been done many thousands of times with few rejections. The actual implant is a titanium peg; this replaces the missing tooth root. Once the dental surgeon has placed the implant in the jaw, after four or five months the bone is totally healed around the implant. At this time an abutment is placed on the implant which in turn holds a crown, a bridge or even dentures.
Gives you your smile and confidence back:
When you have missing teeth you either hesitate to smile or do it behind your hand. Once the dental implants in Glenview are in place they look, feel and function like natural teeth. With a full set of teeth your face is fully supported and you can once again smile with confidence.
Of the three types of artificial teeth; bridge, denture and dental implant; nothing is as comfortable as a dental implant. Not only that, they are as easy to care for as natural teeth.
