Dental Implants - Almost As Good As Nature
Dental implants are the state of the art way to replace missing teeth for our East Peoria, Peoria, Pekin, Washington, and Morton, Illinois patients. They can be used to replace a single tooth or a full mouth of teeth. They look great and feel natural, just like your other teeth in fact.
Dental implants can be used to support a single tooth, a bridge replacing multiple teeth, or even underneath a denture to stabilize it.
Implants are titanium cylinders gently and precisely placed into the jawbone. Most patients report little to no discomfort after implant placement. After healing, the tooth, bridge, or denture can then be attached.
Advantages of Dental Implants:
- Implants are most similar to natural teeth
- Adjacent teeth do not have to be drilled down (as they do for a fixed bridge)
- No movement of implant when eating or speaking
- Average lifespan of implant is 10-15 years longer than bridges or partials
Below are some examples of cases here in our East Peoria office using dental implants.
We do most dental implants in our office, however there are certain cases that require a specialist, such as an oral surgeon or periodontist, to place the implants. In those cases, our office works closely with the specialists and our dentists will then deliver the permanent, natural feeling teeth.
