Dental Implants in Elmhurst

What does getting a Dental Implant look like at Gsmile Dental?


Having lost a tooth or teeth can be very upsetting for many. However, at Gsmile Dental we are proud to offer implant placement with results in natural looking teeth. Our modern, clean, and professional office offer many options for patients with missing teeth.

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

What are Implant Supported Dentures?

Implants also allow you to wear full dentures and partial dentures without worrying that they will slip or fall out. Implants with screws placed in the jaw will serve as attachments for a metal bar, which will help support a removable denture.

What are Implant Bridges?

An Implant Bridge will have support from the implants, which is more beneficial unlike a tooth supported bridge which puts a heavier load on the other teeth.

At GSmile Dental, we can replace your missing teeth in a way that looks entirely natural and beautiful. If you have experienced adult tooth loss, we encourage you to call (929) 388-1255 and schedule an appointment to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. In the meantime, here are some questions that are commonly asked about dental implants.

Why are implants better than dentures or dental bridges?

When you use dentures or a dental bridge to replace teeth, they only replace the visible portion of the tooth. While an effective way to restore your smile and ability to eat and speak, this does not provide the level of stimulation that your jawbone needs to prevent resorption. Your roots and teeth stimulate your jawbone every time that you bite down and chew. This informs the body that your jaw is serving its purpose by supporting your teeth. Without it, your body will begin to leach calcium from your jawbone to distribute to other areas of the body. The loss of bone density can give you a sunken appearance and make you appear far older than you actually are. By placing dental implants your tooth can be restored while preserving your jawbone and facial appearance at the same time. No other solution is as effective at doing so.

What is the Snap-on Smile® procedure?

At GSmile Dental, Dr. Dechavez offers the Snap-on Smile procedure for patients that do not qualify for traditional dental implants or those that are looking for a faster solution to tooth loss. This procedure can be completed in two appointments. The first appointment is to take an impression of your mouth and to take measurements so that a new set of teeth can be created. The teeth will look natural and beautiful while being attached to synthetic gums, similar to how dentures are created. The difference is that this set of teeth snaps in place, secured to a set of four implants. When you come in for the second appointment, the four implants are placed, and the new set of teeth are secured to them. You can leave with a full set of natural looking teeth that are incredibly durable. We invite you to call (929) 388-1255 and learn more about this procedure. For those looking for a fast solution to tooth loss, this is a fantastic option that will remain in place when you speak, eat and engage in high impact activities.
