How do Dental Implants Work?
When you lose one or more teeth it can affect not only your self-esteem and appearance but also how you speak and chew. Furthermore, there are a variety of other oral health issues that occur if tooth loss is left untreated. Fortunately, dental implants can prevent these issues from happening.
Dental implants are small metal posts that our Yorkville, IL general dentist will place into the jawbone to take the place of your tooth roots. The tooth roots are a surprisingly important part of the tooth because they are what stimulate the jawbone to remain healthy and strong.
Once the implant is put in place, the gums are stitched back up and you’ll need to wait a few months before we can begin the next step of your implant treatment. Over these months of healing, the bone and tissue will begin to heal around the implant.
It will even stimulate the jawbone to produce healthy new bone cells, just like real tooth roots. As a result, the jawbone will not deteriorate and facial muscles will remain supported, which is a major benefit for anyone getting dental implants.
How Long Will it Take to Get Dental Implants?
This question is one that we may be better able to address when you come in for your consultation. After all, everyone is different. How quickly you heal will be different from how quickly another person heals.
Dental implants can be a truly amazing way to revive your smile and bring it back to life. Call YorkTowne Dental in Yorkville, IL today to learn more or to schedule a consultation.
