Dental Implants And Smile Makeovers

smile makeovers Elgin

The gap in your smile caused by a missing tooth is not only embarrassing, it can have an impact on your dental health. That’s why dental implants from David Rice DDS in Elgin make so much sense.

When you’re missing one or more of your teeth, the space it causes can make the remaining teeth shift and rotate. This has an immediate impact on your bite. They’re also more difficult to keep clean.

Your jawbone is also affected. Because of the missing tooth roots, the bone begins to lose its mass. This, in turn, leads to a shrunken appearance on your face.

Dental implants are an ideal solution. Implants are metal posts inserted into your jaw. They’re usually made of titanium, and within a few months of insertion will actually fuse with the bone, becoming one with your jaw. They become a solid foundation for an artificial tooth.

Since they are physically attached to your jaw, the artificial teeth function just like the real thing. They also act as a new tooth root, stimulating the jaw bone and preventing recession.

A dental implant from David Rice DDS in Elgin can be the first step in a series of cosmetic dentistry procedures that result in a complete smile makeover. Patients from Bartlet, South Elgin, and Wayne are thrilled with their new smiles. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
