Many people have had a big boost in self-confidence after replacing missing teeth with dental implants from David Rice DDS in Elgin.
Nothing gives us more satisfaction than helping people improve their quality of life. With a new smile, they feel better about themselves. They feel more comfortable in public. They socialize more often.
That might be thought of as a bonus, though. Dental implants are lifelike tooth replacements. They look and function just like natural teeth. With a dental implant, you’ll regain normal biting and chewing ability.
Some three million Americans are already enjoying the benefits of single and multiple dental implant restorations. Here is some essential information:
- Replacement root. A dental implant is a replacement tooth root for a missing tooth. They are usually made out of titanium, a lightweight metal that is highly compatible with bone.
- Bone stimulaltion. The artificial tooth attached to the actual implant gives you back your smile. But just as important, the implant stimulates the bone to prevent recession.
- Healing. It usually takes two to three months for an implant to fully integrate with the jaw bone.
- Single and Multiple. One dental implant can support one artificial tooth. Several implants can support a partial or full set of dentures.
No wonder dental implants have been called one of the most important advances in dentistry. At David Rice DDS in Elgin we also offer a full range of general and family dentistry. Call for an appointment today!
