Here are the many ways in which getting dental implants can benefit you.

Are you interested in getting dental implants from our St. Charles dentists, Drs. Edmund, Lynn and Dana Lipskis, to replace one or more teeth? If you said “yes” then you’ll first want to understand what implants are and how they work before undergoing treatment Although these small metal posts may not look like much at first glance, they provide a number of unique and incredible smile benefits, including:

  • A long-term replacement tooth
  • An artificial tooth that functions just like a real tooth
  • A tooth that’s easy to care for and maintain
  • Prevention of jawbone loss
  • Support and preservation of the natural facial structure
  • Prevention of any shift in teeth
  • Restoration of chewing and speaking ability
  • Increase in confidence
  • Better overall oral health

Dental implants also offer a very high success rate of up to 98 percent. Of course, this success rate will also depend on how well you maintain your oral hygiene. A proper routine involves brushing and flossing regularly and properly, while also making sure that you visit our St. Charles office every six months for cleanings and checkups to make sure that your dental implants remain healthy.

 

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

Dental implants offer some incredible benefits, but not everyone qualifies for them right away. To find out if you meet the necessary requirements, you must first undergo a professional oral exam and consultation at our St. Charles office. During this appointment, we will see if you have any active cavities or gum disease, as well as determine if your jawbone is strong enough to support the implant. If this sounds a bit intimidating to you, don’t worry! The vast majority of people who seek implant treatment are approved right away. However, even if you have gingivitis or a weak jawbone, we have procedures that can fix your issues and get you well on the way to receiving your new dental implants!
