If you are experiencing the loss of teeth, you are probably looking for the best tooth loss solution. Today, many patients enjoy getting dental implants to replace missing teeth because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you would like to learn if you are a good candidate for getting Skokie implants at Old Orchard Dental, we hope you will come and visit our dental practice soon.
When patients come to our practice wanting to get Skokie implants, one of our top-notch dentists will work with them to determine whether or not they are a good candidate for the procedure. Our dentist will need to determine whether your jawbone is thick enough and healthy enough to be able to securely hold dental implants. Just one of our top-notch dentist who is able to provide you with dental implants is Dr. Daniel Au. If it is determined that your jawbone able to withstand the dental implant procedure, our dentist will then proceed to surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Dental implants can also be used to securely hold dentures and removable bridges in place. Once a dental implant root is inserted into your jawbone, there will be a healing period of about two months during which time the jawbone will fully heal, and the dental implant root will firmly fuse to the jawbone.
Once it is determined that the healing period is over, our dentist will then be able to permanently attach a beautiful porcelain crown to each dental implant root. At this point you will have complete dental implants in place, and you will be able to enjoy all of the benefits they have to offer. You will be able to speak and smile in total confidence. And, you will be able to eat anything you want in total comfort, without worrying that the dental implants will embarrass you in any manner. If well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings at our office, your Skokie implants should last a lifetime.
