What are the Common Reasons for Getting a Dental Implant?

Schedule a Dental Consultation

Dental Implant surgery can seem daunting. After all, this procedure acts as the tooth’s root, physically installed into the jawbone. These metal posts that resemble a screw replace damaged or missing teeth and won’t slip or cause bone damage.


How Do I Know if I Need a Dental Implant?

  • Missing tooth or teeth
  • Want to improve your speech
  • You have loose dentures or loose partials
  • Your tooth has become infected and you need it pulled
  • You have difficulty chewing food
  • You have a broken or terribly cracked tooth

Missing Tooth or Teeth
Dental implants are a well known solution for missing teeth. This can help if the missing tooth is right up front, or if it’s a molar which causes issues chewing.

Want to Improve Your Speech
Dental implants can certainly balance out the issues that are caused by uneven bites. Once the implant is installed, it can be outfit to help the bite come down just perfectly, solving many speech challenges that arise.

You have Loose Dentures of Loose Partials
No one enjoys loose dentures or partials, and sometimes the fight can be ended by incorporating a dental implant which can keep everything in place.

Your Tooth Has Become Infected and You Need It Pulled
Sometimes an abscess tooth has no option but to be removed. This can leave a gaping hole which causes chewing issues, and a litany of additional challenges. By replacing the empty space with a dental implant, you can reclaim a beautiful, and functional smile.

Your Have Difficulty Chewing Food
Sometimes difficulty biting down, for whatever reason, can cause serious long-term issues. Dental implants can most certainly help you stabilize your bite while chewing food.

You have a Broken or Terribly Cracked Tooth
A broken or cracked tooth can cause you fits and sometimes there is no way to save the tooth. Fear not, because a dental implant might just be the perfect substitution. Here at Wilmette Dental, we provide dental implant surgery and can go into a deep dive consultation with you to ensure it is the right option for you and your needs.


Is Getting a Dental Implant Expected to be Painful?

Getting a dental implant should not cause you any physical pain as you are locally numbed around the treated area. By the time the numbing agent wears off, you will likely feel sore, but you should not expect to feel any authentic pain. Dental implants are a very common and popular practice in dentistry to solve for many oral challenges people face.

Wilmette Dental is well-versed in providing a top-tier experience for your own implant.
