You’ve damaged a tooth beyond repair or you have already lost it. You can leave that unsightly gap, but that will only make you feel self-conscious about your smile. You could end up hiding your teeth all the time. That’s not a practical solution. You’re only dealing with one tooth so dentures aren’t necessary. You could do a bridge or a crown, but you want a better alternative. Chicago dental implants could be exactly what you need to give you a reason to flash your pearly whites.
A dental implant provides you with a permanent solution for damaged or missing teeth. It’s meant to last. With proper care, you should have a replacement tooth for many years in the future. It will function like one of your own teeth. It will feel and look like a real tooth. Best of all, it will be permanently in place. You won’t need to take it out every night or worry about it loosening up. Once it is in place, your dental implant will be there to stay.
It will take several stages before your implant is complete so you will need to be patient. If your tooth isn’t missing already, the tooth that is beyond repair will be removed. A metal post will be placed in your jawbone next. This post will actually bond with your jawbone. Your jaw will need to heal. An abutment will be attached to the implant. This extends and provides a point where your replacement tooth can be mounted on your implant. The final step is to have a replacement tooth formed that matches the rest of your teeth. It will be the same color and will blend in seamlessly with your real teeth. Once the process is over, you will be pleased with your final results. Be sure to take good care of your implant, keeping it clean. Contact your dentist is you experience any problems whatsoever, such as gum sensitivity or damage to your implant. Enjoy having a full set of teeth that look beautiful. Take care of all your teeth so you can show off your smile.
