Dental Implants Services at South Lakewood Dental In Lakewood COOK - even though you took really good care of your teeth, did everything the dentist advised and had regular check-ups, one of your teeth had to be extracted.
Now what? Can I leave it like that? Yep! Is that the best thing for my teeth?
Maybe not! Teeth are like dominoes - you take one out and they all start to move! In the past, a dentist would place a “bridge” to replace the tooth and stabilize the area. Problem - this means “anchoring” the bridge to adjacent teeth which must then bear the load and the “insult” of crowns!
Solution - An implant (artificial root) + A specially crafted crown replaces the lost tooth without relying on or involving adjacent teeth.
Traditional Implant - This technology has progressed dramatically - today it is routine and predictable. A titanium implant is surgically placed and after a period of healing, your dentist places a crown fitted to the implant. The final result is a natural looking, comfortable and functional “tooth”.
Zirconium Implant - This implant is the first non-metal implant and we are proud to be one of the first offices to offer this to our patients. Since the final crown placed is also non-metal, this is ideal for those patients with metal sensitivities and allergies or health issues related to metals.
So many of our patients tell us they wish they had done their implants sooner or as a first solution.
We offer a free consultation with Dr. Stewart if you are considering a tooth replacement and would like to discuss possibilities! Call us on (855) 233-0023 or Request an Appointment
