Discover the Benefits of Dental Implants

Is This the Tooth Replacement You’ve Been Looking?

Replacing one or more missing teeth doesn’t have to be difficult. Our Frankfort, IL, dentist, Dr. Martin Bour, wants to make 0640952001541107895.jpgit easy to fill those gaps in your smile with the next best thing to real teeth: dental implants. Read below for more information on implants and how they can improve your oral health.

What Are Dental Implants?

Implants are a safe and effective way to replace one or more missing teeth. To get an implant, our Frankfort, IL, restorative dentist will need to place a titanium screw into the jawbone. This screw is designed to take the place of your missing tooth roots. In fact, this restoration even functions just like tooth roots, providing the jawbone with the stimulation it needs to prevent bone deterioration (the most common complication of untreated tooth loss).

It will take several months for the jawbone and tissue to heal from this minor implant placement surgery. During this time, the bone and tissue will naturally fuse together with the metal implant. Once this happens, you can rest assured that your new restoration isn’t going anywhere. It will provide a stable foundation from which to support a dental crown. Of course, if you need to replace multiple teeth, multiple implants can be placed to support dentures.

How Long Do Implants Last?

In essence, a dental implant can last as long as natural teeth. Therefore, if you take care of your implant and maintain good oral hygiene, your implant can last the rest of your life. Coming in every six months for routine checkups and cleanings will also ensure that your implant lasts a long time.

Are Implants Right for Me?

If you are a healthy adult who is missing one or more permanent teeth, then chances are good that dental implants can help you. During your consultation, we will perform a physical exam and run x-rays to check your oral health and to make sure that your jawbone is strong enough to support the implant.

Isn’t it time that you got your full smile back? Dental implants make it easy to restore your missing teeth and help you regain confidence. If you are ready to find out if you are a good candidate for implants, please call our Frankfort, IL, dental office today at (815) 469-3395 to schedule a consultation with our very own Dr. Bour.
