Are missing teeth the reason that your smile is not looking or functioning at its best? Whether you have lost teeth as the result of an injury, disease or decay, an incomplete smile can affect your appearance and function as well as your self-image and confidence. Let the skilled and experienced, Dr. Edward J. Matsumoto and the team at Matsumoto Center for Dentistry provide the care you require to reestablish a vibrant smile. As providers of high quality and reliable care, we offer several dental services to replace lost or missing teeth including Chicago dental implants.
When you are missing teeth there are a number of consequences that can develop in the aftermath. When a tooth is extracted, the adjacent teeth begin to slowly shift into the empty space to create misalignments that can affect your bite as well as other aspects of your oral health. Moreover, without the stimulation a tooth with roots provides, the bone in the area of tooth begins to shrink or “resorb.” Because dental implants are modeled in the likeness of a natural tooth’s roots, they integrate with the jawbone within a period of a few months following placement. Chicago dental implants become so strong that they create a secure and durable foundation for a customized crown or bridge, and even provide added stability to removable dentures and other prostheses. Out of all the teeth replacement methods available today dental implants represent one of the greatest advances in the field of dentistry, coming the closest to replicating the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. Moreover, dental implants have a success rate of around 98%, the highest of any implanted surgical device.
