-- Did you know that untreated tooth decay can lead to tooth loss? Did tooth loss already occur? If you are at a loss regarding your tooth loss, let Dr. William Galanes shine light on your treatment options.
One popular restorative procedure sweeping the dentist offices is dental implants. In Elgin, patients can restore their smiles, permanently.
"A tooth needs to be replaced as soon as possible. This is key to stopping your jawbone from resorbing. If the jawbone has already resorbed, you will need to undergo treatment to rebuild it. To limit the number of treatments you need, talk to your dentist to see if a dental implant is an option," explains Dr. Galanes, Elgin dentist.
What are the benefits of getting a dental implant? With the process of osseointegration, the jawbone will secure the screw-like implant, solidifying its place in the spot of your natural tooth. Since most implants are made of titanium, the dental material won't agitate the gum tissue or jawbone.
Moreover, dental implants don't call for the neighboring teeth to be filed down, as they might have been if a dental bridge was placed. Once your jawbone and gum tissue have time to heal around the implant, an abutment will be securely placed onto the implant, followed by a synthetic crown-it will look and feel like your natural tooth.
After completing the implant procedure, you will notice a great improvement in regards to your chewing function and speech. You will be able to continue your normal routine without any trouble. As long as you diligently clean and floss on a daily basis, your implant will remain perfectly intact in your mouth.
