Dental Implants

If you are missing one or several teeth, dental implants in Warrenville can provide an excellent alternative to traditional dentures or bridges. Dental implants offer both aesthetic and functional benefits.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant in Warrenville is a titanium rod that is surgically embedded into the jaw bone. This rod is then attached to a dental crown above the gumline to create a durable tooth replacement. 

Why Dental Implants?

Dental implants look, act and feel like your real teeth. Because they mimic your natural teeth, implants can help improve your speech and chewing ability by allowing for more natural movements. Dental implants can also be cleaned with normal brushing and flossing and never need to be removed. If you have a gap in your teeth, an implant can help prevent your existing teeth from shifting to fill in the gap. Implants provide the most permanent and realistic option for replacing a missing tooth. 

What is the Implant Process?

Acquiring dental implants is a two-step process and will take at least two dental appointments. In the first step, Dr. Sumeet Bagai will surgically insert a titanium screw into your jaw in place of the missing teeth. At this point, your dentist will place a temporary cap to fill the space. Once the screw is placed, it can take up to a few months to allow your jaw bone to attach to the metal.

For the second step, a custom-fit restoration such as a crown, bridge, full denture or partial denture will be permanently attached over the top of the screw post to complete the dental implant in Warrenville. This tooth replacement is expertly matched to the color and shape of your surrounding natural teeth.

After the procedure, it is normal to feel mild discomfort. You may experience some swelling, bruising, or minor bleeding. Over the counter pain medications will help numb the irritation for the next few days. To minimize these effects stick to eating soft foods while your stitches heal.
