When you look in the mirror each day and see missing teeth and a smile that you’re not very happy about, it takes a toll on your self-esteem. Dental implants are the next best thing to your natural teeth in aesthetic value and function, and they can also have an incredible impact on your self-confidence.
Here at New Teeth Chicago Dental, Dr. Irfan Atcha and the entire dental team at the River North, Near North Side in Chicago office, make it our mission to help you have the most beautiful and healthiest smile possible. If you have one or more missing teeth, discover how dental implants can boost your confidence and improve your oral health.
From missing teeth to nearly-natural teeth with dental implants
Whether you’re missing one tooth or several, having a space in your mouth where a tooth should be makes it harder to speak clearly or to eat, and it negatively impacts your self-confidence. Even more concerning is the fact that missing teeth can lead to a variety of more complex oral health conditions and dental issues, including decay, gum disease, and eventually jawbone deterioration.
Why subject yourself to such afflictions when you can easily get custom dental implants and save yourself all the physical and emotional trouble of not replacing missing teeth?
Dr. Atcha is not only an award-winning general dentist, but he is also a highly skilled implantologist with advanced training and credentials in the field of implants. He delivers state-of-the-art custom dental implants to patients of all ages who need to replace missing teeth to improve their oral health and their self-esteem.
Dental implants look and work just like your own teeth
Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing natural teeth because of they way they fit perfectly in your mouth and become a permanent part of your jaw. Just like natural teeth, each dental implant has its own root and tooth. The root is a medical-grade titanium screw that integrates securely into your jawbone, just like a natural tooth root.
The visible part of an implant is called the crown, and Dr. Atcha designs it to look just like your natural tooth in size, shape, and color. Implants seamlessly blend in with the natural surrounding teeth so they help restore your smile — one you no longer want to hide.
Dental implants function just like natural teeth, so you can enjoy your favorite foods without concern that your dental work might slip out of place. Implants are also a breeze to take care of since you brush and floss them just like you would your natural teeth. And, as an added bonus, implants are not susceptible to tooth decay, so once you replace a tooth with a custom dental implant, as long as you maintain good oral hygiene, your implant can provide a lifetime of worry-free dental treatment.
Implants offer many benefits to your oral health
One of the many benefits of implants is a result of the way Dr. Atcha places them. With custom implants, there’s no need to alter adjacent teeth. Some other types of dental restorations require the filing down of healthy teeth or removal of enamel, but implants are designed to fit perfectly into your upper or lower set of teeth without the need to alter other teeth nearby.
Replacing one or more missing teeth with dental implants ensures that your other teeth stay healthy. Additionally, when an implant fills in the missing space in your gums, nearby teeth can no longer shift into the empty space and cause tooth misalignment, which often leads to even more complicated dental issues.
If having a less-than-dazzling smile affects how you feel about yourself in social and professional settings, it’s time to look into custom dental implants. Restoring your smile does so much for your oral health, as well as your overall well-being.
Don’t hesitate to replace missing teeth. Dr. Atcha recommends taking action as soon as possible after a tooth falls out. Learn more today by calling our friendly Chicago office at 312-219-9524 to schedule an appointment, or get in touch with us online.
