Want to find out how these long-term restorations could replace your missing teeth?

Dental ImplantThere is a reason so many people are turning to these small metal restorations after tooth loss. After all, they are the closest thing you can come to real teeth because they act just like tooth roots and provide a stable foundation to support a false tooth or teeth. Sure, nothing beats a natural smile, but when tooth loss occurs it’s a real comfort to know that our River Forest and Chicago, IL, dentists Dr. John Lynch, Dr. Sheila Lynch, and Dr. Fran Lynch can help you get your smile back on track.

Here are some of the amazing benefits of getting dental implants:

The Next Best Thing to Real Teeth

We know you never wanted to lose a permanent tooth but isn’t it comforting to know that dental implants are as close as you can get to natural teeth? They look and even function just like the real thing. The secret lies in the fact that an implant is an artificial tooth root, which means that when it’s surgically embedded in the jawbone it will become a permanent structure within your mouth to support the false tooth (or teeth).

Bolster Your Appearance (and Confidence)

We all know that gaps in your smile can make you feel rather embarrassed by the way you look. Your appearance is important when it comes to how confident you feel. Your smile should make you feel self-assured, not embarrassed. By getting a full smile back thanks to dental implants you’ll also enjoy a boost to your self-esteem.

A Lifelong Restoration

While dental bridges and dentures will need to be realigned, refitted and replaced every few years, this same situation doesn’t apply to an implant. Once the metal post is placed within the jawbone and naturally fuses together with bone and tissue, you can rest assured that with the proper oral care and hygiene in place that you could have this new tooth for the rest of your life.

Preserve the Jawbone

One serious and inevitable complication of untreated tooth loss is bone loss. The only way to prevent bone loss is to place a dental implant because it is the only tooth replacement that functions as a tooth root, providing the jawbone with the perfect amount of stimulation it needs. The sooner you turn to your River Forest and Chicago restorative dentists for a tooth replacement the sooner they can stop bone loss from occurring.
