FAQs About Dental Implants In Cary, Il

FAQs About Dental Implants In Cary, Il

Published on March 19th, 2021

Dental implants are one of the most effective and long-lasting teeth replacement options you can consider. If you are currently suffering from tooth rot or you’ve severely damaged one or multiple of your natural teeth, consider an artificial tooth as a replacement.

Here are some common questions that we receive about dental implants in Crystal Lake, Il, and surrounding areas.

What exactly is a dental implant?

A dental implant is made from three different parts that are surgically inserted into your jaw bone to replace one or multiple missing teeth. A small titanium post is inserted directly into your gum tissue. On top of that, we would attach a single cap, a fixed bridge, a partial denture, or a full denture depending on your needs. The implant will look and function just as your natural tooth would.

Who is the ideal candidate for dental implants?

Any adult who is missing one or multiple of their natural teeth is a candidate for dental implants. We can provide a single tooth replacement or replace multiple missing teeth through dental implants. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with us if you think you may be a candidate! Rest assured that you’re in great hands with one of the best dentists in Cary, Il.

Is the process going to be painful?

No! We always talk you through the treatment plan of what you can expect along the way, and we use anesthesia to make patients comfortable and relaxed. You won’t feel anything during the procedure. While you may be a bit sore for a few days after the procedure, the overall pain level is tolerable.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

There are many benefits that artificial teeth offer that your natural teeth do not. Many patients who seek dental implants have deteriorating jaw bone, and a dental implant can promote the growth of new jaw bone.

Additionally, dental implants can last a lifetime with the right dental care. This is an investment worth making!

What is the success rate of dental implants?

Your regular dental health habits will factor into how successful your dental implant is. Generally speaking, the success rate is 95 percent or higher!
