Dental Implants have revolutionized dentistry in the last two decades. If you’re missing a tooth, you no longer have to live with a gap in your tooth. A dental implant can make you look great and restore form and function to your smile.
At the office of Thomas J. Feder, DDS, PC, in Belleville, IL, we are proud to now offer dental implants to our esteemed patients. This convenient service means you don’t have to visit a specialist for your procedure; this is not just convenient, it can save you time and money.
Our top-notch team in Belleville, IL, has advanced training in dental implants; plus, we take great joy in using them to transform our patients’ smiles. A dental implant is one of the best ways to remove a missing tooth.
The Advantages of Dental Implants
With other solutions for missing teeth, such as a fixed dental bridge, we have to place crowns on the teeth in front of and behind the missing tooth. This requires the reduction of teeth on both teeth. To be sure, this is a solution that can fix the aesthetic issues of a missing tooth; however it can lead to potential complications for your other teeth.
Dental implants are quicker and easier. Dental implants can restore full-form and function of your smile and teeth. That means eating the things you love, and flashing a Hollywood smile with ease.
Best of all, dental implants are comfortable. Most patients report no more pain or discomfort that associated with a dental filling. That means you can revolutionize your smile with a comfortable dental implant.
How Dental Implants Work
We begin by installing a titanium post in your jawbone. This post acts as an artificial tooth root. As your jaw heals, the titanium post will become as stable and sturdy as your natural tooth roots. We can then install an artificial tooth on the implant. The artificial tooth looks and functions just like a real tooth.
A dental implant can restore your full ability to chew, as well as your beautiful smile. It will also help to stabilize both your jawbone and your gums. This helps to prevent the slippage of your old teeth, making you less likely to lose more teeth. It also helps prevent you from losing bone mass and your gums from shrinking.
