Dental Implants Can Replace a Missing Tooth from Root to Crown
Dr. Ardeshir Raghian is a board-certified periodontist with the necessary skills and expertise to safely and successfully place dental implants. Most implant specialists will refer you to a general dentist for final placement of crown. This can be an inconvenience and lead to higher costs for the patient. At Winnetka Dental Care, Dr. Raghian has the ability to complete the implant process from start to finish, all under one office. If necessary, Dr. Raghian has the experience to extract tooth, graft, place implant and restore it with dental crown.
Benefits and Process of Dental Implants
Dental implants are considered the gold standard of restorative dentistry because of the many oral health benefits they offer. With traditional restorations, bone loss can continue, and additional tooth loss can occur. Dental implants preserve the density of the jawbone, preventing further bone and tooth loss. Dental implants can support a variety of strong, durable, and lifelike restorations for a completely natural look.
Dental implants are titanium posts that resemble small screws. These posts are implanted into your jawbone to replace the entire structure of a missing tooth, from root to crown. We can replace a single missing tooth with a dental implant and crown, or multiple missing teeth with several implants and a dental bridge, full or partial denture. An implant is not required to replace every missing tooth, and an entire row of missing teeth can typically be replaced with as little as six implants. Depending on the health of your jawbone, you may need a bone graft or sinus lift, which can rebuild tissue and improve your eligibility for dental implants.
