Dental implants have been used for several decades. Patients of all ages have chosen dental implants to restore a single tooth or several teeth or to support a partial or full denture. Dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dental implants are made of titanium. They do not decay or rust. They do not get root canal problems. They are resistant to periodontal disease.
A dental implant offers comfort and stability and, by virtue of the artificial tooth it supports, is a restoration that is the closest thing to a natural tooth.The success rate of dental implants is highly predictable. They are considered an excellent option for tooth replacement.
The doctors of Periodontics of Southern Illinois have advanced training in the placement of dental implants. They maintain membership in several professional organizations, including the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
By any measure be it appearance, comfort or function, when state of the art Dental Implants are combined with modern dental procedures, the result is likely to exceed your expectations.
