Any time you’re facing a surgical procedure, you want to know that the professionals in charge of your healthcare are experts in their field. That’s why so many patients in Glenview come to Dyme Dental when they need dental implants.
Missing teeth, no matter where they are in your mouth, can be more than cosmetic flaws. They can cause your teeth to shift, create damage in your jaw, and result in chronic conditions that affect your health.
But you don’t have to live without any tooth just because your natural one is gone. Instead, Dr. Dyme can help you come up with a treatment plan that fixes this problem for good.
The dental implant process is simple, and our staff can guide you through what to expect and how to deal with any insurance questions. It all starts with a consultation, and from there, Dr. Dyme will evaluate you to see if you might be an implant candidate.
When you’re not ready for full dentures or bridges yet, but you want to prevent the damage that comes from a missing tooth, an implant is a solution. Implants are a common dental procedure. During this minor surgery, a metal post is placed in your gums and affixed to a dental crown that acts like your natural tooth.
Implants do require surgery, so you must be in good oral and physical health to be a candidate for this procedure. When you schedule your consultation, be sure to bring in a history of your medical health and your current medication list.
Dr. Dyme will take x-rays and give you a comprehensive oral exam to get a feel for the exact state of your teeth and gums. From there, he’ll let you know if implants might be right for you or if another treatment plan would be better.
You don’t have to have perfect health to be able to have this procedure. As long as you don’t have gum disease and the area where the implant is going has sufficient bone available, go ahead and schedule the consultation!
There are some medical conditions that may result in a delay of your procedure as Dr. Dyme works with your healthcare provider to verify your ability to have the surgery. However, as long as you’re upfront and honest about your past and present medical issues, no matter how small you think they are, and you bring in a list of all your meds, Dr. Dyme will be able to give you an accurate idea of if and when you can schedule your implant surgery.
Once your implant is affixed to your mouth and you are released to normal activities, the new tooth acts just like your natural teeth. You can brush, floss, and use mouthwash as you normally would, and you no longer have to worry about the long-term damage caused by your missing tooth or teeth.
When you’re ready to see if dental implants can help you get your confidence and dazzling smile back, call Dyme Dental to schedule your consultation.
