Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you wish to have a beautiful, fully functional smile once again? Ask our dentists about dental implants in Gurnee, Illinois. Dental implants restore not only the tooth, but the tooth root. Implants are made up of three parts: a titanium screw, a dental restoration, and an abutment. The titanium screw is placed in the jawbone, replacing the tooth root. The dental restoration, which is usually a dental crown, is attached to the screw by Dr. Domagala and Dr. Shango. The abutment connects the two pieces.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants have many benefits. The titanium implant screw is designed to fuse with the jawbone, so dental implants become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implant placement doesn’t require the altering of healthy teeth, as some dental restorations do. Because of this, your long-term oral health is enhanced.
How do I care for my dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the way you care for your natural teeth. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. Also, it is important that you visit Institute of Dental Implants and Periodontics at least twice a year for a cleaning and exam.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are very strong. They can last for up to 25 years, or even longer with good care.
