At Chicago Osteopathic Hospital Dental Clinic PC, we understand how losing a tooth can impact your health, self-esteem, and ability to live a fully functional life. Even a single missing tooth can make it difficult to eat, speak, and smile. Dental implants are one of the methods we offer for replacing teeth and ensuring the health, beauty, and longevity of your smile. Dental implants are a surgical treatment designed to replace the whole tooth, from the root below the gum line to the crown that rests on top. The first step is placing the actual dental implant, a small metal post, in your jaw and allowing it to heal. This is done by an oral surgeon in conjunction with our dentists, Dr. Wilson, Dr. Wegmann, and Dr. Choo.
Once your gums and jaw have healed, our team will create a beautiful dental restoration to be permanently placed on top. This is generally a dental crown, bridge, or denture. It is attached with an abutment on the implant for lasting strength. When the dental implant process is completed, it will be as if you never lost a tooth. If you are interested in using a dental implant in Chicago, Illinois, to restore your smile, please call and schedule a consultation with our team today. We are eager to help you find confidence in your smile and move forward with your life.
