Dental Implants in Kankakee IL 60901

Dental implants are tooth root replacements that are positioned into your mouth to hold a replacement tooth or a partial bridge. Implants are constructed of three parts: a titanium post that is placed in the jawbone, an abutment that fits over the part of the implant that protrudes from the gum line, and the crown.

Benefits of dental implants.

Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution. Some benefits of single dental implants include:

Are you a candidate?

The ideal dental implants candidate is over 18, in general good health, and has enough bone to hold the dental implant in place. Dental implants are usually not recommended for children, as the jaw is still growing. Patients who suffer from heart disease or diabetes should undergo evaluation before obtaining dental implants. Although smokers can still get dental implants, they may face a lower success rate if they continue smoking.

Before your implant surgery, we will carefully examine your medical history, current medications, and a list of questions to determine whether you are a candidate for dental implants.

Will it hurt?

Most patients report that dental implants are actually less painful than wisdom teeth extractions. Swelling and slight discomfort may occur after implant surgery, but those can usually be treated with over-the-counter pain medication. If you are anxious about your dental treatment, please ask us about your options of how to keep you completely comfortable during your procedure.
