Are you missing a tooth? If so, you might find it hard to chew or speak. You might even feel embarrassed to show your smile. Fortunately, there’s a solution: dental implants. They’re much more convenient than dentures because they are permanently fixed, making it easier for you to eat and speak normally.
The Dental Implant Process
If you’re considering getting dental implants, set an appointment with Harvey Mahler. He can tell you more about implants and help determine whether you’re a good candidate. If implants are the right choice, the dentist follows these steps:
- First, he places the implant into your bone socket. After this procedure, you’ll need to wait several weeks for your jawbone to grow around the implant.
- Next, the dentist attaches a connector post to the implant.
- Finally, he attaches a crown (artificial tooth) to the connector post. Dental technicians in Chicago, IL create this crown using a model of your bite, so the crown matches your other teeth.
Although the entire process may take several months, it’s well worth it. Your new implant will help you feel confident in your beautiful, healthy smile.
Caring for Dental Implants
Just as you do with your regular teeth, you can brush and floss your implants. You should also get your teeth checked by your Chicago, IL dentist every six months.
At Smile 312, we focus on a holistic approach to oral health. We want to help you make the right decisions for your dental care. We even offer free consultations.
If you’d like to set an appointment to discuss dental implants with Harvey Jay Mahler, DDS, call us at 312.263.5262.
“Dr. Mahler is a perfectionist! This was the most thorough dental exam and cleaning I have ever had. He made the process of having to get a crown comfortable and pain-free. His explanations were thorough and his demeanor calming. Highly recommended!” – Ralph K.
