So you’ve lost some teeth and hesitate to smile because of the gaps. If only you could go back in time and regain that full-toothed smile you once had. Guess what? With dental implants from David Rice DDS in Elgin, you can!
A dental implant is a titanium post inserted into the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A supporting device (called an abutment) and crown connect to the post.
For most patients, a dental implant is the ideal replacement for a missing tooth, because it replaces both the root and crown. They feel so authentic that some people forget they’re there!
While a single implant can support one artificial tooth, multiple implants can support a bridge, and even a full dental arch.
Dental implants are available here at David Rice DDS in Elgin. Patients from Bartlet, South Elgin, and Wayne come to our office for implants and other restorative dentistry, and all their dental care needs. Schedule an appointment with us today!
