Dental Implants in Glen Ellyn
Dental implants are clearly the new “miracle” of modern dentistry! No longer do healthy teeth have to be “filed down” for tooth supported bridges nor do people have to have destructive partial dentures that trap food. Full dentures that “flop around” so people cannot eat or talk comfortably and cause social embarrassment or discomfort can be secured into place, or eliminated completely!
My recommendations to learn if dental implants are the right choice for you: (from someone with over 30 years of dental implant experience):

Second–To learn how dental implants can replace missing teeth, check the sections on What Are Dental Implants, and Replacing Single (or few) Teeth with Dental Implants.
Third—Examine the choices for replacing multiple missing teeth and eliminating destructive partial dentures with our page on Replacing Partial Dentures–Dental Implant Bridges.
Fourth–Read about the four alternatives are to dentures with 1) Dental Implant
