If you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth due to gum disease, cavities, or trauma from an accident, you have options that are far preferable to removable dentures in both convenience and comfort. Treasured Smiles Adult and Cosmetic Dentistry offers affordable dental implant restorations in Frankfort, Illinois.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a device that resembles a singular tooth or group of teeth. It remains secure because it is placed within the bone of the jaw. The bone accepts the implant through the process of fusion. Dental implants look and feel completely natural and have many additional benefits. In addition to replacing missing teeth, they help protect you against bone loss and shifting teeth. Dental implants can replace partial dentures and bridgework or help anchor dentures to prevent them from shifting.
Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant process at Treasured Smiles Adult and Cosmetic Dentistry includes thorough planning and preparation for surgery that is crucial for the beauty and comfort of your dental implants. It is important to identify the shape and dimensions of the surrounding bone to correctly orient the implants and achieve superior results. For this reason, we work closely with surgeons who specialize in the surgical placement of the dental implants.
The dental implant procedure is completed in several steps. First, we will refer you to a specialist who will perform the surgical portion of the procedure. This doctor will insert the implant into the bone. During the healing process, we can provide a temporary crown so that you will not be afraid to smile. Next, after some time has passed and the bone has attached itself to the surface of the implant, you will return to our office where a permanent crown is placed onto the implant.
Healing time following dental implant surgery can take anywhere from two to six months. It is important to speak with your doctor about precautionary measures to take during the healing process.

We realize that your smile is one of your most powerful “accessories,” and with this in mind, we take the utmost care in performing dental implant procedures.
