Dental Implants in Crystal Lake

Dental implants from Dr. Brian P. Overmyer at Perfect Choice Dental are the best way to treat missing teeth. Although dental implants are usually more expensive than dental bridges and dentures, they’re worth the investment because they’re a permanent restoration.

Crystal Lake implants offer a number of benefits that other tooth restorations do not. Most importantly, since they’re permanent, they can last a lifetime with proper care. They look and feel just like a natural tooth, so there’s no getting used to the prosthetic. Also, they require no specialized dental care. Just brush and floss normally, and see Dr. Overmyer for regular 6-month dental exams and teeth cleanings.

Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are built from two primary parts. These parts are the “post” and the “crown”.

The post is built from either titanium or zirconium. It functions as an artificial tooth root, and is implanted into the gum and jaw tissue where your original tooth root used to be. This provides a stable, permanent attachment point for the crown.

The crown is built from ceramic or porcelain materials, and is crafted to match the shape and color of your existing teeth perfectly. This provides a seamless, natural tooth restoration. The crown is attached to the abutment at the top of the post, giving you a permanent tooth restoration.

The Dental Implant Procedure – What You Need To Know

The dental implantation procedure at Perfect Choice Dental usually consists of just two appointments.

During the first appointment, your mouth will be cleaned, prepared, and numbed. A tiny opening is made in the gumline, and the post is implanted into the gum and jaw. The opening is sutured and cleaned, and the initial procedure is complete.

The healing process usually takes about 3-6 months. During this time, the post will bond permanently with the surrounding jaw and gum tissue, providing a permanent attachment point for the crown.

The second appointment is when the crown is placed. Dr. Overmyer will check the fit, shape, and color of the crown, and ensure it’s a perfect match. He will make adjustments, if necessary. It’s then bonded into place permanently with dental adhesive, and the procedure is complete.

Who Can Get A Dental Implant?

Most people are eligible for a dental implant. If your jaw bone is strong and healthy, it will likely be able to withstand the surgery. Whether you have recently lost a tooth due to an accident or periodontal disease, or you’re interested in replacing an old dental bridge or a partial denture with a dental implant, you should get in touch with Dr. Overmyer for a consultation.
