Dental implants in Elk Grove Village can be the solution for a wide range of issues. Dental implants are the state of the art way to replace missing teeth. The process has become very common place for replacing missing teeth on both the upper and lower jaw. The implants are little titanium screws on which a crown sits that looks just like a natural tooth. The crown is the only thing visible in the mouth because the implant itself sits right at the gum line and is covered by the new “tooth” that either snaps or screws on.
There are many reasons why you should be considering this option to restore your teeth but 3 reasons really stick out from the rest:
* Most permanent type of replacement
* Keeps bones healthy
* Easy maintenance
Closest to Natural
Implants give you the most natural looking and feeling teeth next to your actual natural teeth. They act as natural teeth as well and can literally last you a lifetime if cared for properly. Other replacement options will have to eventually be replaced or remade. Implants become a natural part of your jawbone over time and act just like natural teeth would.
Keeps Your Bones Healthy
One of the gravest problems with missing teeth is that you can experience rapid bone loss in your jaw which can cause your other teeth to shift or become loose. Implants help to keep your bones healthy.
Implants are easy to care for. With other replacement options you have to remove them to clean them and you have to do it often. Food can get trapped under bridges and cause bacteria to flourish. With implants you just brush your teeth and floss as you normally would.
