Get A Better Idea Of Whether Dental Implants From our Elmhurst Dentists Can Help You

Have you already heard about dental implants? These individual replacement teeth are helping patients of many ages, and with various dental needs, restore their smiles.

If you are currently suffering from tooth loss, you are probably wondering whether dental implants can help you. The best way to find out for sure is to come in for a consultation with our Elmhurst dental implant dentists. However, in order to give you a better idea right now, our dental team is going to review what types of patients frequently benefit from dental implants.

1. People suffering from unexpected tooth loss.

If you lose a tooth—due to injury, infection, or any other unforeseen event—you want to replace your tooth with a natural looking and feeling replacement. Enter: the dental implant! Patients love dental implants because they stay in place all of the time, and are simple to care for. Plus dental implants can be used to replace single teeth.

2. Patients concerned with safeguarding oral health

When you lose a tooth, your smile is at risk of becoming structurally unsound. Basically every tooth is important, because each tooth supports the adjacent teeth. Dental implants help to keep your remaining teeth in place, and the implant root bolsters your jawbone.

3. People who are unsatisfied with their current dentures

Did you know that dental implants can actually be used with dentures? Our dentist will insert dental implant roots into your jawbone. Then your denture will be altered so that it attaches to the implant roots, and thus stays firmly in place.

People choose to pursue dental implants for a number of different reasons: but no matter what the initial reason, patients are constantly surprised by how natural looking and feeling implants really are.

So reach out to our Elmhurst dental implant dentists if you want more information about restorative dentistry options, including innovative dental implants.
