More about Dental Implants

These dental implants can be used in St. Charles, Illinois, for a variety of reasons. They are structures that are placed where a tooth root once was. They are usually secured to the jawbone or framework and serve as a foundation for an artificial tooth or even a bridge. In some cases, they can be used to attach dentures even.

They are designed so well that they can look exactly like natural teeth and can function similar to natural teeth too. Dental implants from St. Charles Family Dentistry Ltd. are usually made of titanium. For a successful implant to stay in place, a candidate must have a strong immune system and the proper bone density needed to heal well. Also, a good oral hygiene routine is required in order to keep the restoration healthy.

Surgery is required for a dental implant treatment option. Following the surgical procedure, a period of time is needed for the implant to heal properly and be secure and for the bone tissue itself to build up. Metal posts sometimes are inserted inside the implants during a follow-up procedure in order to connect the tooth properly.
