While most people believe that the permanent teeth you receive as an adolescent or young teenager are, in fact, permanent; the truth is that teeth can be lost for a number of reasons. A tooth can be knocked out during an accident or some form of trauma to the face, or it can simply be a natural part of the aging process, or the simple effect of health concerns. Regardless of the reason, replacing the tooth is important not only for cosmetic reasons, but also for the health of the mouth. In addition to helping patients smile bigger, a full set of teeth, keeps the remaining teeth in place and gives support to the mouth.

At Pleasant Dental® in Dolton, IL, our team offers a variety of options to restore a missing tooth. Common solutions are dentures, bridge and crown appliances, and dental bridges. Each option has its own set of advantages and can be the right choice for various reasons and individual situations. In recent years, however, dental implants have become the most popular choice among patients as they offer a nearly permanent solution and are becoming for affordable. With dental implants patients can “set it and forget it.” The tooth will function and look exactly like the patient’s original tooth.

There are many advantages of dental implants including:

  • A natural appearance – the crown, also known as the replacement tooth, is custom made to be an exact match of the original tooth.
  • Durable – the tooth stays in place and provides support to give patients confidence while smiling, speaking, or eating.
  • Permanent – Once the tooth is placed, it’s set. Patients don’t need to take it out before bed or for brushing. Simply care for the implant and crown in the same way that you care for the rest of your teeth.

If you’ve been impacted by tooth loss, it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible. Dr. Dean Dietrich will perform an evaluation and determine the best path for treatment to give you a smile you love and the confidence you want.
