Saving a tooth is the most important goal of the Glen Dental Center in Glenview, but unfortunately, that is not always possible. Injury, trauma, decay, and gum disease can make it impossible to save your natural tooth. Most people who have had to deal with tooth loss know how traumatic it can be. Not only does it affect your confidence, but it can also cause other health problems as well. Replacing a tooth or multiple teeth as soon as possible can save you time, money and your other teeth. If you put off replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, your other teeth can shift. This creates an uneven bite that could lead to jaw stress, TMJ disorders, headaches and additional tooth loss. Some people with missing teeth avoid tooth replacement because they are worried about a, “fake,” tooth thinking it will look worse than no tooth at all. However, with the artistic skills of Dr. Jeffrey Gilmor, along with the state-of-the-art dental implant techniques, the Glen Dental Center in Glenview is able to recreate a brand new tooth that will look just like your natural looking teeth.
Dental Implants are more cost effective as dentures and fixed dental bridges will have to be replaced at some point. Dental implants can last a lifetime as long as you practice good oral health habits.
Improve your overall health and quality of life with implant dentistry and schedule a complimentary personalized implant consultation to talk to Dr. Gilmor or Dr. Phillips about which type of dental implant is right for you.
