Dental Implants in Elk Grove Village, IL
Dental Implants to Replace Single or Multiple Missing Teeth
Dental implants offer a new way to fix a smile due to missing teeth. This state-of-the-art procedure allows us to replace a missing tooth with a crown crafted to blend in flawlessly with your own natural teeth. By affixing the crown to a biocompatible titanium “root,” we can place the crown perfectly and permanently so you don’t have to deal with dentures or partials.
While most dentists have to refer their patients out for the actual implant procedure, Dr. Advani is able to place the titanium implants himself, right here in our Elk Grove Village, IL dentist office. Dr. Advani has extensive experience performing surgeries and placing implants. He has placed over a thousand implants and takes hundreds of hours of continuing dental education every year. The added convenience of having the implant placed and crown placed in one location saves you the time and hassle of having to make a special trip to see another practitioner. Additionally, you have the benefit of having your work performed by the same dentist you trust with your regular day-to-day care.
At the initial consult visit with Dr. Advani, a CT scan will be taken to evaluate the bone. Dr. Advani will review the CT scan with you and describe the procedure in detail and answer any questions. The implant surgery is then planned by Dr. Advani using computer guided 3D technology that allows Dr. Advani to precisely place the implant. Even patients with limited bone are able to have this procedure done, due to the precise placement of the implant with this technology.
The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth
Often, when patients want to replace missing teeth, it’s because they are concerned about their appearance and the unfortunate stigma that has (unfairly) been placed upon them. While appearances and aesthetics are very important, especially since low self-esteem and low self-confidence can eventually lead to depression, this is not the only reason why missing teeth should be replaced.
Missing teeth make it difficult to enjoy a lot of what life has to offer and can cause additional health problems over time. When you are missing teeth, you may find yourself avoiding healthy foods because they have become difficult or even painful to chew. This can lead to problems with malnutrition and vitamin deficiencies. As you avoid using your teeth, the bone and tissue of your jaws become weaker and may begin to degenerate. Over time, this will change the sound of your speech and even the shape of your face, making you appear older than you really are.
Gum disease is another very real concern in people who are missing teeth. In some cases, people may lose their teeth because of advanced gum disease, or gum disease may develop in people who have lost their teeth due to trauma or decay. In either case, gum disease and other oral diseases have been linked to serious health conditions including heart disease and diabetes.
The Advantages of Dental Implants
Dental implants restore your teeth to full functionality and help avoid the common problems associated with missing teeth. Unlike dentures or partials, which may slip at the wrong moment and limit the foods you can enjoy, dental implants allow you to resume your life freely and confidently, enjoying the foods you love and smiling and laughing whenever you feel like it.
Caring for dental implants is as simple as brushing and flossing your own natural teeth. Follow the oral hygiene routine set for you by Dr. Advani and return to our office for your regular twice yearly examinations and professional cleanings. Dr. Advani will also use this opportunity to check the condition of your implants and make sure everything looks good.
