OAK BROOK, IL, August 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Many people assume that tooth loss is an inevitable part of aging, but most factors that contribute to tooth loss can be controlled much earlier in life. However, if tooth loss does occur, leading Oak Brook Dentist, Dr. Rose Beicos, is available to replace missing teeth with dental implants in Oak Brook at RSB Dental.
"The consequences of tooth loss can have a devastating effect on your overall health and self-esteem. With advancements in dentistry, we are able to successfully replace missing teeth with dental implants. At RSB Dental we believe in fixing a patient's smile rather than just the tooth and dental implants allow us to restore a patient's smile for an overall improved appearance and functionality," said Dr. Rose Beicos, dentist in Oak Brook.
Dental implants are manufactured "anchors" that are used in both the upper and lower jaws. Surgically inserted into the jawbone, implants become a stable base for artificial replacement teeth. The implant acts as the root of the tooth, and when accompanied by a crown, bridge or denture, the implant will look and perform like the natural tooth that was lost.
Implant surgery is performed in your dentist's office in a three step process. First, your Oak Brook dentist will surgically place an implant directly into the jawbone, replicating a natural tooth root. Following this is the initial surgery where the implant is typically left covered for three to six months to allow the bone to develop around the implant to help hold it in place. This process is called osseointegration. Without osseointegration taking place, the implant may fail.
