How Do Dental Implants Work?

Missing teeth can significantly affect oral health and overall health. Tooth roots provide the essential stimulation your jawbone needs to stay strong and healthy. There's nothing to keep your jawbone from weakening and shrinking when teeth are missing. Bone loss and recession of the gum tissue caused by tooth loss can jeopardize the density and function of your jaw.

Dental implant posts consist of body-safe titanium that simulates tooth roots and fuses with living tissue and bone. They provide your jawbone with the stimulation it needs to remain strong, healthy, and intact.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

The benefits of dental implants extend far beyond improving your smile's appeal. They are designed to completely replace missing teeth from root to crown because dental implants successfully fuse with tissue and bone.

Some of the most important benefits offered by dental implants include:

  • Prevent or halt further bone loss
  • Keep neighboring teeth in place
  • Help preserve facial features
  • Look, feel, and function like natural teeth
  • Reestablish proper eating and speaking
  • Can last a lifetime with proper care

Our Implant-Supported Restorations

When dental implants support restorations, they provide a secure and reliable foundation for replacing missing teeth from root to crown. From a single missing tooth to an entire arch of missing teeth, our team has the solutions that can repair your smile. We provide the following dental restorations supported by implants:

  • Crowns are beautiful, life-like restorations that complete single-tooth replacement. The titanium post that serves as the artificial tooth root is attached to your crown. An implant-supported crown is often an ideal solution for those seeking to replace a single missing tooth.
  • Fixed Bridges are reliable solutions for patients in need of a replacement for two or more missing teeth in a row. These restorations fill gaps caused by missing teeth and allow rejuvenated dental function and natural-looking results.
  • Partial Dentures can replace multiple teeth throughout your smile. They are a great solution to replace large gaps without altering neighboring teeth within the smile.
  • Dentures are ideal for replacing an entire arch of teeth. The implants provide stability and strength, allowing you to enjoy a wide variety of foods. Depending on your needs, they can be removable or fixed.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Ideal candidates for dental implant treatment must have a strong jawbone that will support implants for proper healing.

If you have had missing teeth for a lengthy period and have not had them replaced, your jawbone may have weakened and shrunk. In many cases, a bone graft can help improve the density of your jaws and prepare you for implants. We can determine if dental implants are right for you with a detailed conversation and a comprehensive examination of your oral structures. To find out for sure if dental implants will be able to help you, schedule your consultation with our team to find out what dental implants can do for your smile as well as your overall well-being.

Restoring Teeth After Damage, Trauma, and Decay

When teeth have chips, cracks, fractures, or other damage caused by an accident, trauma, or decay, it can hinder the appeal, health, and function of your smile. Filling cavities, sealing dental spaces and repairing tooth enamel can help prevent further damage or decay. Our restorative dentists in Shiloh will always try to preserve your natural teeth, if they can, before resorting to more complex treatment.

Our dental care professionals often recommend the following two restorations for addressing damage within your smile:

  • Fillings are a type of restoration used to "fill" the area on the tooth after removing decay. Fillings are also used to repair cracked, chipped, broken, and worn teeth caused by grinding or trauma. Among the most popular types of fillings are composite fillings, because they blend seamlessly into your natural smile.
  • Crowns may be needed to help restore teeth that have become less structurally sound over time. Crowns enclose the visible part of the tooth completely, correcting its appearance and protecting your tooth's interior. Dental crowns are also needed to help seal off and prevent re-infection from entering a tooth after root canal therapy.

Save Your Smile With Root Canal Therapy

If you experience persistent tooth pain or sensitivity, then decay and infection may have entered your tooth's inner soft tissues, and prompt treatment is necessary for trying to save your natural tooth as much as possible. Root canal therapy's primary goal is to preserve your natural tooth structure while preventing extraction.

When you visit our office for root canal therapy, our goal is to make the process as easy as possible. Only when you are numb and comfortable will we start your procedure. We gently remove the infected pulp, and then the empty channels are sanitized and filled with an antibacterial material that supports the structure of the inner tooth. We then prepare the treated tooth for your custom crown, which will be placed after it's meticulously crafted by a trusted dental lab.

What Are the Advantages of Root Canal Therapy?

Although many believe that root canal therapy treatment is painful, invasive, and uncomfortable, most of the discomfort is caused by the infection itself. Root canal therapy is designed to save your teeth while alleviating discomfort.

Saving teeth with root canal treatment has many advantages, including:

  • Helps preserve natural tooth structure
  • Restores efficient chewing
  • Restores normal biting force and sensation
  • Preserves natural appearance
  • Protects other teeth from excessive wear or strain
  • Alleviates severe tooth pain and discomfort

Caring for Your New Smile

After your dental restoration treatment in Shiloh is complete, our team will take the time to educate you on the proper care for your new and improved smile. Keeping dental plaque under control and your teeth clean with a consistent oral hygiene regime significantly helps your dental restorations stay beautiful and long-lasting. Your routine should include brushing with a soft-bristled toothbrush at least twice a day, as well as using fluoride toothpaste. Mouthwashes are also effective in strengthening the surfaces of your teeth in addition to daily flossing. It is also vitally important to the health of your natural teeth and new restoration that you maintain your regular dental appointments so that we can help ensure your optimal oral health.
