Your provider for Dental Implants in Logan Square Chicago area
Dental implants are metal posts (similar to a tooth root). They are typically made out of titanium. Implants are essentially anchors that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They help to provide a stable support system for artificial teeth or dentures.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
-Help to preserve your jawbones from atrophy.
-Give you increased ability to chew. Dental implants often can take the same amount of pressure as natural teeth.
-Increased comfort. The implants give you a stable base so that your replacement teeth are anchored firmly into place. They won't slip or slide. When dentures aren't secured, they can cause painful sores in the mouth and also a clicking sound when you talk or chew.
-Last for a long period of time. Choosing implants that are scientifically tested and approved, your implants can last as long as 20 years as long as they are well taken care of with proper regular dental care such as brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups.
-Gives you more confidence. Dental implants look and function just like natural teeth. Having a nice smile can give you a renewed send of self-esteem. It also gives you the comfort and peace of mind of being able to smile, chew, talk and laugh with confidence.
