Residents in Skokie, IL ask their dentist about implants

The loss of a tooth can be devastating to a person’s oral health and self-confidence. Unfortunately, this is something that nearly 69 percent of adults have to face by the time they are 44 years old. Peter W. Fry, D.D.S. offers his patients dental implants to restore missing teeth.

Dental implants are the foundation for a restoration; they are often call artificial tooth roots. The implant is placed in the jawbone in a simple procedure. During the next three to six months, the bone will fuse to the implant. Once this is complete, abutments will be placed on the implant and it can be topped with a crown or fixed dental bridge.

The benefits of dental implants

There are several reasons dental implants are such a popular option for restoring missing teeth, these include:
  • Dental implants are the only restoration option that can prevent the loss of bone around the empty socket of a missing tooth.
  • Because implants rely on an artificial root for support, they do not require healthy teeth to be reshaped to accommodate dental crowns the way a fixed dental bridge does.
  • Dental implants are versatile, they can be topped with a crown to replace one tooth, a bridge to replace two or more teeth, or multiple implants can be placed and topped with special abutments for implant supported dentures.
  • Once an implant is placed, patients do not have to worry about replacing it as they would with a fixed dental bridge that relies on existing teeth for support. Bridges generally have about a 10-year life span. Dental implants have a 92 to 98 percent success rate, and do not begin to fail over time. Studies have shown them to be effective for 40 or more years with proper care.
Dental implants require the same care as your natural teeth. Providing they are brushed at least twice a day, flossed daily and you see Dr. Fry for your routine checkups and cleanings you can count on them lasting a very long time.

If you have a missing tooth, call Dr. Fry’s office at 773 - 545 1414 and schedule your appointment. His Chicago office is a short drive for Skokie, IL residents, and the friendly staff and outstanding dental care make it worthwhile.
