Whether you are missing one or several teeth, we can create a personalized treatment plan to restore beauty, health and function to your smile.
What are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is a bio-compatible titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone beneath the gum line. This titanium post is designed to fuse to the jaw bone and act as the tooth root providing a strong foundation for the replacement tooth. Then Dr. Engelberg will use that to attach a replacement tooth in his Buffalo Grove, IL cosmetic dentistry office. Dental implants do not come loose like dentures and can last a lifetime if cared for properly along with regular dental visits.
Parts of the dental implant:
Implant post: a bio-compatible titanium post that is surgically implanted and fuses to the jaw bone creating a permanent and secure bond
Abutment: connects to the implant after it has fully healed, at the gum line and secures the dental crown or over denture
Prosthetic tooth: this can be a dental crown for a single missing tooth or a dental bridge or denture for multiple missing teeth
Types of Dental Implants
Single Tooth Dental Implant– Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth. A local oral surgeon will place the implant post in the root canal according to the treatment plan designed by your Buffalo Grove, IL dentist. Once healed, the abutment will be attached, and a dental crown will be used to complete the restoration.
Dental Implant Secured Bridge– A dental bridge is used to replace several consecutively missing teeth. Dr. Engelberg usually recommends securing dental bridges with dental implants instead of adjacent teeth. Implants provide more structural support for the jaw and bite and need less maintenance.
Dental Implant Secured Denture– Many patients struggle with ill fitted dentures. Dentures are prone to slipping or falling out, causing embarrassment for patients. Dentures can be secured using strategically placed dental implants. Dental implant secured dentures allow patients to enjoy a diet without restriction and can help patients feel more confident in their smile.
