Losing your teeth can compromise many aspects of your life, making it difficult to smile, eat and speak with confidence and ease. Thanks to advances in the field of implant dentistry, the office of Dr. Frank Shaw can recreate the look, feel and function of natural teeth with incredibly lifelike results. With Chicago dental implants, we can help you rebuild the beautiful and complete smile you deserve.
Studies show that across the United States 160 million people are missing at least one tooth and 35 million are completely edentulous. Tooth loss can be attributed to a number of factors, including periodontal disease, traumatic injury and tooth decay. By replacing missing teeth with state-of-the-art Chicago dental implants, our highly trained dentist can improve your oral and overall health, as well as your self-image. A dental implant is a small surgical post, made of biocompatible materials, which integrates with you jawbone over time to support a customized dental prosthesis. The implant behaves like an artificial tooth root, providing ongoing stimulation to the surrounding tissues, which helps prevent bone loss and preserves the natural contours of your face. We can replace an individual missing tooth with an implant supported dental crown, which provides a conservative alternative to a traditional dental bridge that won’t require the involvement of any adjacent natural teeth. We can also replace multiple missing teeth or even a complete set of upper or lower teeth and in such cases will restore your implants with a fixed bridge or customized overdenture. A full arch dental bridge offers a permanent, stable alternative to traditional dentures.
At the office of Dr. Frank Shaw we keep pace with the most advanced technology and methods in the field of implant dentistry. Our team customizes your treatment plan with Chicago dental implants to attain the best outcome of care. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
