...For a Whiter, Healthier, More Beautiful Smile.

Dental Implants in Downers Grove, IL

If you’re missing a tooth, you might not feel like smiling. But you don’t have to live with an embarrassing space between your teeth. There are procedures available to replace your missing tooth. Good news because a missing tooth doesn’t just leave a hole in your smile; it may also affect the way you speak and chew your food. And if your tooth isn’t replaced, the teeth around it begin to move. Shifting teeth create new gaps between your teeth that plaque and tartar can hide in – which can lead to tooth decay.

 

Model of how our dental implants work in Downers Grove, IL

Implants are a modern option for replacing missing teeth. Instead of setting on your gums like removable dentures, or using adjacent teeth as anchors like with a dental bridge, your replacement teeth are surgically anchored into your jawbone.  Your new implant looks and feels like a natural tooth and lets you chew and talk like you did when your original tooth was still with you. When properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular visits to your dentist are still recommended. If you feel an implant may be right for you give Webster Dental a call.
