Dental Implants in Joliet, Shorewood, New Lenox, Lockport & the Surrounding Areas

Are you tired of talking or eating awkwardly due to missing teeth?

Do you feel hesitant to flash a toothy smile because of misaligned teeth?

Compromised teeth can not only take a toll on your self-esteem but can also be distracting for others. This is exactly why we offer expert dental implants services at Smile League Dental.

Dental implants are fast becoming popular replacements for missing teeth. They will continue to be in trend due to their durability, versatility, reasonable cost, and high compatibility with tissues.

What are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a surgical fixture that serves as a prosthetic replacement of missing teeth. It is like a titanium screw that serves as an artificial tooth root when fixed into the jawbone beneath the gums. It holds a replacement tooth or bridge without disturbing any of the adjacent teeth.

Dental implants are the closest replacements for natural teeth and the ultimate long-term solutions, providing your teeth with the stability and strength required to chew the food properly. Hence, you can easily enjoy all your favorite food without being self-conscious!

Additionally, dental implants stimulate the function of the jawbone, prevent bone loss, and support facial features. For this treatment, one must have healthy gums and strong bone structure for adequate support.

Procedure for Dental Implants

The dental implants procedure typically takes a few months to complete. Here’s how it goes:

Implant Placement
First, the dentist surgically places the implant in your jaw so that it is covered with gum tissue. It takes three to six months for it to fully integrate into the jawbone.

Post Attachment
The dentist attaches a post to the implant, allowing the gum tissue to grow around it. Together, the implant and the post support the replacement tooth.

Crown Attachment
The dentist then attaches a customized crown to the implant.

Types of Dental Implants

There are three types of dental Implants:

  • Endosteal

Endosteal implants are the most popular option, first introduced by Dr. PI Branemark. They are surgically fixed into the jawbone to replace one or more missing teeth. They can be used as an alternative to bridge or denture. They can be threaded (screw type), smooth (cylinder type) or bladed type.

The most commonly used endosteal implants today are made of titanium and work by frictional frit and cell adhesion.

  • Subperiosteal

These implants are metal frames fitted onto the jawbone just below the gums. Over time, as the gum tissues heal, the implant becomes fixed to the jawbone. The posts that are attached to the frame protrude through the gums. Once in place, this implant then holds an artificial tooth.

  • Transosseous

Transosseous implants require extensive, careful surgery, general anesthesia, and hospitalization. Hence, they are used rarely. They are specifically designed for people with a limited or weak bone structure.

The surgical process involves the insertion of two metal rods from below the chin through the jawbone. Once exposed inside the mouth, they serve as a supportive structure for the dentures.
