Are missing teeth or uncomfortable dentures making you feel less inclined to smile? Dental implants could be the solution.
They are often considered by dentists such as Dr. Tim Stirneman of the Lake in the Hills-based Compassionate Dental Care to be the gold standard of tooth replacement because they are so sturdy, natural-looking, and beneficial for your oral and overall health.
How does the treatment work?
While there are a few different types, the most common are endosteal implants which are surgically implanted directly into the jawbone. As you heal from the surgery, your body will form a strong bond with the implant, allowing it to act in much the same way as a natural tooth root. This process gives your restored smile the strongest base possible. After that bond has formed, a custom restoration is placed on top of the implant.
Whether you are missing one tooth, multiple teeth, or all your teeth dental implants could be the right option for you.
Recently, Stirneman opened the Brand New Smile Dental Implant Center in the same building as Compassionate Dental Care. The practice focuses solely on the “Brand New Smile” solution, which gives patients a complete implant-supported denture in just one appointment. Using highly-advanced imaging, dental experts find the places in your jawbone that provide the most security for your replacement teeth. From there, they will place two implants towards the front of the jaw where it is naturally thicker, and two more towards the back at an angle in order to provide maximum strength. The denture will then simply snap onto these implants. After the initial procedure, the team of specialists will work closely with you to design and create a highly-customized dental prosthetic so you can enjoy a smile that both looks beautiful and feels natural.
