Losing teeth is something that happens to a great many people, especially with age. As you get older, many different parts of your body lose their strength and become subject to things such as decay and disease. Additionally, decay, disease and injury may occur at other points in life due to health related conditions or poor oral hygiene, which can cause your teeth to become damaged and fall out as well. The initial loss of teeth will harm your dental health, but continuing to live without a full set of teeth will as well. Here with our dentist Linda M. Weinfield DDS you can explore what options may be available to you when it comes time to replace missing teeth, including options such as South Chicago dental implants.
There are plenty of different treatments used to help restore smiles after teeth have been lost or damaged. If your teeth are damaged, they may not need to be removed entirely as in some cases restorative procedures and prostheses that can help keep the tooth in place and restore its shape and function. If this is not possible or if the teeth have been completely lost then you will need to have them replaced as soon as possible. Here at the dental offices of Linda M. Weinfield DDS, you can explore what options are available to you, including South Chicago dental implants. Here at our offices, Dr. Weinfield will examine the state of your remaining teeth and gums in order to determine what they can support. If your bones can support it, then you may be eligible for dental implants, which are known for looking, feeling and performing the most like real teeth. Dental implants rely on titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone that act as artificial tooth roots, keeping the artificial teeth you will have in place. These posts will actually meld with your bone and provide a firm foundation. Once your bones have healed, your artificial teeth can put into place.
The artificial teeth used in dental implants are designed here at our offices by our dentist Linda M. Weinfield DDS to look as natural as possible. If you happen to be interested in South Chicago dental implants, then our implant dentist can help you find out whether you are eligible and to help implement the treatment as well.
