What’s so great about our dental implants in Elmhurst? Well, they are standalone tooth replacements that look and feel like real teeth. Equally, if not more, important, they perform like real teeth. You can speak and laugh and chew (even though or crunchy foods), without a care in the world. At the office of The Gentle Dentist- Dr. Amit Sood, implants are one of the featured procedures that are offered, and a magnificent way to restore your full smile.
When you lose a tooth, you are left with a gap that is very obvious. If that gap is visible when you open your mouth, the problem is noticeable to everyone else, not just you. Even if the tooth is hidden, though, you are subject to your other teeth shifting, discomfort, an out of sync occlusion (bite), and other drawbacks. The clear answer is to get our dental implants in Elmhurst. There are two basic parts to them: the tooth on top of the gums that is represented by a crown; and the root beneath, represented by a titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw. Your bone tissue grows around the post and fuses with it. The process takes up to a few months, but it is worth the minimal wait. The post is not just a stand-in for a root, but it as durable and strong like one. The next step is for impressions to be taken for the crown, which is made at the dental lab from tooth-colored material, and subsequently cemented to the post for a permanent hold. Unlike a bridge or dentures, there is no need for messy and undependable adhesive, nor are your other teeth affected.
