What are implant-supported restorations?

Replacing teeth after tooth loss or extraction is important to ensure the smile’s function, health, and appearance. At BK Dental of Wood Dale and Evanston, Illinois, Dr. Boris Kaltchev and his team are dedicated to ensuring patients have choices available to them that can provide permanent tooth replacement whenever possible. With dental implants, patients can enjoy lasting repair and replacement of one, several, or even all teeth in the dental arch.

How are dental implants used in restorative dentistry?

Dr. Boris Kaltchev and his team at BK Dental are committed to providing patients with solutions for their smiles, including ways to address tooth loss. With dental implants from our practice, patients can enjoy a more permanent way to address missing teeth compared to traditional options such as dentures and bridges. Dental implants are titanium posts that Dr. Boris Kaltchev places into the jawbone during an oral surgery procedure. The implants themselves act as a tooth root replacement, supporting a porcelain crown, bridge, or denture over it to restore function, health, and beauty to the smile.

Why choose dental implants over other available tooth replacement options?

There are several reasons why patients might choose dental implants as their preferred choice for effective tooth replacement when faced with tooth loss and extraction. Whether you choose fixed bridges on implants, implant-supported dentures, or dental implant crowns, you will find the following benefits:

  • Long-lasting solutions. Dental implants are custom-designed to become a permanent solution for tooth loss. With proper care and maintenance from the patient, they can last a lifetime
  • Improved appearance. Because our dental implants are custom-made to match the shape, size, and even the natural color of your teeth, they blend in with the existing smile and provide a natural-looking smile
  • Enhanced function. Unlike dentures, which can slip or cause discomfort while eating and speaking, dental implants are securely anchored into the jawbone, allowing for normal speaking and chewing without any worry
  • Maintained bone health. When natural adult teeth are missing, the jawbone can deteriorate with time. Dental implants stimulate the jaw bone to prevent further deterioration
