Discover The Benefits Of Dental Implants

Dental implants are very versatile. Drs. Laura Elliff, Andrew Elliff, or Theron Layer may recommend them for a single tooth replacement, to support a bridge, or to transform your entire smile. A dental implant is composed of a titanium pin that resembles a natural tooth root. Once it becomes surgically positioned into the jawbone, it is covered with a crown for a lifelike appearance, improved function, and dependable durability. If you're searching for a permanent solution to a healthy smile, consult with one of our dentists in our Batavia, IL, office to discuss the benefits of dental implants.

Reasons for Dental Implants

If one or multiple teeth are missing, this is consequential for a patient's jawbone, gum tissues, and surrounding teeth. As more begin to fall out, this can result in tooth fracture, inability to enjoy your favorite foods, as well as severe pain and discomfort. You may also have a significant loss of confidence and self-esteem. Fortunately, dental implants can fix these problems. They can also help you retain your natural features, and give you something to smile about.

Advantages of Dental Implants

When you maintain adequate oral care and keep up with routine appointments and professional cleanings at our Batavia, IL, dental office, your implants can successfully last up to 10 years. These restorations are a popular option because they can:

  • Preserve jawbone for a youthful appearance
  • Fill gaps missing teeth leave behind
  • Offer minimally invasive treatment and speedy recovery
  • Renew confidence and boost oral health

The dental implant procedure takes place in our Batavia, IL, office, over a few months. Once our dentist inserts the screw into the jawbone, a process called osseointegration occurs, which fuses them as the tissue heals.

Before you begin the process, schedule a consultation with Drs. Laura Elliff, Andrew Elliff, or Theron Layer to determine if you're a candidate and to address any questions or concerns.
