Dental Implants in Belvidere, IL

Tooth loss can be inevitable at a certain age in life. In spite of advanced medical development, there is not yet a permanent method to stop the occurrence of tooth loss. However, there are ways to replace your missing tooth, like dental implants.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace missing teeth with an artificial tooth. The actual implant, the metal screw, is implanted into your jawbone to provide a strong foundation for the replacement tooth—the crown.

Advantages of Dental Implants

There are many advantages of dental implants for smile enhancement:

  • Enhanced appearance

  • Easier eating and chewing
  • Improved oral health
  • Durability
  • Convenience

If you have lost your tooth due to tooth decay, injury or periodontal disease, you may be a candidate for dental implants, depending on your current dental and overall health, as well as the strength of your jawbone.
