Dental Implants in Skokie, IL

Dental implants offer an effective long-term restoration for a missing tooth. When a tooth needs to be extracted, it is important to fill in the space with a dental restoration to prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting or moving. Implants include a post placed into the jawbone, which acts like the root of the tooth. Then a crown is placed on the post to restore the appearance of the smile.

Patients usually find that tooth implants look and feel like the natural tooth. Implants can be used for a single tooth replacement. Or, implants with bridges or dentures can be used to replace multiple teeth. When good dental hygiene is maintained, quality teeth implants can last a lifetime. If you are looking to replace missing teeth, call today to schedule a consultation with our implant dentist.

All On Four Implants Smile Restoration

All On Four implants offer an effective solution when all of the teeth need to be replaced. It isn’t necessary to place an implant for every missing tooth. Instead, four implants are spaced across the gumline on your top or bottom jaw. Then, the dental prosthesis (such as dentures) can be locked onto the implants to restore the smile.

These implant-supported dentures can be used for half of your teeth (top or bottom) or all of your teeth. If All On 4 dental implants are chosen as the right treatment for you, then any remaining teeth on the jaw will need to be removed to make room for the restoration. All On 4 implants are a great way to comprehensively restore the full smile without having to do many different procedures.
