Confidence begins with a smile – a healthy smile. And that starts and ends with your dentist. Think about it, just as we need to take care of our bodies, our teeth need plenty of TLC too. While some people are lucky enough to be born with teeth that never seem to need any dental work outside of regular cleanings, plenty more people require routine care, including fillings, dental implants, and root canals.
Most people are familiar with fillings, and root canals are pretty straightforward, but what exactly are dental implants and prosthetics? Allow us to explain. Dental implants aren’t as scary as they may sound. They are artificial tooth roots used to support a restoration for a missing tooth or teeth, helping to stop or prevent jaw bone loss and biting irregularities.
Comprised of three main parts — implant, abutment, and crown — tooth implants are designed and fitted to look and function like a regular tooth. At Northwest Implant Dental Spa, every patient receives a custom, titanium abutment built specifically for their tooth implant. With our computer-aided design and manufacturing technology, we offer our patients crowns made from the sturdiest, most reliable materials, including cubic zirconia, porcelain, and stainless steel.
People who have lost teeth often feel self-conscious when they smile or talk. No one should feel this way. With Chicago dental implants from Dr. Kim at Northwest Implant Dental Spa, you can smile confidently and feel great knowing you have a beautiful, healthy smile.
