Do you have one or more missing teeth? Gaps in your smile can detract from its overall appearance and make it difficult for you to speak or chew. With a dental implant, you can restore your smile to its original condition and improve the functionality of your teeth. 

At Cedar Creek Dental in Highland, IL, our access to the latest technology allows us to provide cutting edge dental implants in a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere. 

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is an advanced device that is typically made of a metal like titanium and acts as an artificial tooth root. After the implant is placed, your jawbone will heal around it, forming a secure seal. After this healing process is complete, a tiny connector called an abutment is attached to the implant to provide a base for a crown. The dental crown that covers the actual implant will be sculpted to match your unique smile and will fit in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. 

Do I need a dental implant?

Depending on your specific situation, you may be eligible for a single implant or multiple dental implants. However, not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant. Generally, you should have healthy gums, bone support and no defects in your jawbone. Your dentist can advise you further on your eligibility. 

What are the advantages of dental implants?

While dental implants can be more expensive than traditional dental options like dentures, most of our patients feel that they are well worth the investment. With proper care, dental implants can last for the rest of your life. They also provide the same functionality as a regular tooth, while denture users have to be careful about which foods they consume. If you already have dentures, dental implants are a great way to make it fit as securely as possible.
