Dental implants Northbrook
Permanently replacing a missing tooth
Replacing damaged or missing teeth is now possible with dental implants in Northbrook from Advance Family Dental Care. In the past, patients had to rely heavily on dental bridges and dentures to replace their missing teeth, but advances in dentistry have made implants possible. Modern implants look, feel and function just like real teeth. Each missing or damaged tooth can be permanently replaced by anchoring the replacement implant into the jaw itself. Dental implants look and feel like the real thing, helping patients to avoid the route of partial or full dentures.
What are implants & why should I consider them?
Dental implants are a surgical replacement device for missing teeth. Typically a metal material such as titanium is inserted and fastened directly into the jaw, acting as an anchor for the crown (prosthetic tooth). Once this implant is in place, the crown is then attached to the implant either via cementing it in place, or by a retainer screw.
Dental implants are usually an option for:
• Replacing a missing tooth – an implant and attached crown act and look just like the real thing.
• Replacing several missing teeth – an implant and bridge can replace missing teeth.
The benefits of dental implants:
• Improved appearance & comfort – implants can look and feel like a real tooth, boosting self-esteem.
• Improved chewing & overall eating – everyday activities like chewing will become easy again.
Northbrook dental implant process
Dr. Zomorrodi will create your unique treatment plan and coordinate with a local Northbrook oral surgeon or periodontist who will perform the tooth implant surgery. Dr. Zomorrodi will complete the restoration in our dental office.
Implantation: The placement of the dental implant is a simple procedure performed at the oral surgeon office. It typically takes three to six months for the implant to heal and fully integrate with the jawbone. In some cases, Dr. Zomorrodi will a temporary crown while the implant heals.
Dental implant restorations
Attaching artificial teeth (bridge, crown or denture) to implants anchored in the bone below the gum line are implant restorations. These can be snapped, cemented or screwed onto the dental implants. The treatment is designed to give a strong, secure tooth while improving the overall look and feel of the teeth. Your restoration will look and function the same as your natural teeth. You can brush and floss normally. For superior quality and care for your implant restoration in Northbrook visit the trusted dentists of Advance Family Dental Care.
