Dental Implants

Until you lose a tooth, you may not realize how much you value a healthy smile. Luckily, dental implants provide an excellent long-term tooth replacement option. Diamond Dental Care in Lake Zurich, IL explains how you can benefit from a dental implant.

Implants are the only option that replace tooth roots

Bridges and dentures close the gap in your mouth, but unlike dental implants, they don't reach below your gums. Dental implants, which look like tiny screws, are placed in a hole in your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure. Over the course of approximately three to six months, your implant begins to bond with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. Once the process is complete, your implant is just as strong as the roots it replaced.

Dental implants offer several benefits

Because dental implants actually take the place of your missing roots, they offer advantages that other options don't, such as:

  • No Change to Your Jawbone: The roots of your teeth constantly stimulate your jawbone and keep it strong. Once the roots are gone, the area under the tooth begins to shrink and weaken. Eventually, jawbone weakening can lead to further tooth loss and facial sagging. Since implants replace your roots, your jawbone stays strong.
  • A Stable Foundation for Your Crown: After osseointegration occurs, your Gainesville dentist attaches a crown to your implant. The crown takes the place of your tooth above the gum line and looks very natural. Poorly fitting bridges or dentures can cause gum irritation if they slip when you bite and chew. Because your implant bonds to your jawbone, it provides a very stable foundation for your crown, and you never have to worry about irritation due to slippage.
  • A Better Option for Your Budget: The initial cost of a dental implant can be higher than a bridge or dentures, but it's important to consider the lifetime costs of each option. With proper care, your implant will never need to be replaced, but you'll probably need to replace your bridge or dentures several times during your lifetime.

    I had an amazing experience at Diamond dental. I was welcomed by a very sweet receptionist, Karen. She had such a positive attitude. I was given a tour of the facility, since I was new to the office. What a great way to make the patients feel comfortable. During my appointment I received the best cleaning from Anabel. She was so gentle. I also needed to replace a filling. Inna and Dr. Lombardo did an amazing job with that. The staff knows what they are doing and it is evident that they are passionate about their profession.

    I have been going to Diamond Dental for about 2 years now. I am very impressed with everything about the office from the incredibly professional staff to the top of the line, state of the art equipment they utilize. Dr. Lombardo is fantastic and today I had a cleaning from Anabel. It was without a doubt the best and most comfortable cleaning experience I've ever had in my life. If you're in the market for a new dentist, you can stop looking. Go see Dr. Lombardo and her team at Diamond Dental in Lake Zurich for a great experience.
