Dental implants are the perfect replacement for your missing teeth! By providing you with implant dentistry, Dr. Morley and Dr. Hamel can give you a restoration that improves your quality of life, as well as your smile.
Dental implants are intended to be permanent replacements for your teeth. They consist of two parts: an implant post and an implant restoration. Your implant post is essentially a screw that is made of titanium. Our dentists surgically place the implant post into your jawbone at the site of the missing tooth to replace the tooth root. This post functions exactly like your tooth root, stimulating your jawbone to strengthen it and give you a stable foundation for your restoration.
After you have healed from your implant placement procedure, our dentists will provide a custom restoration to cap the post and complete your treatment. Your implant restoration may be a crown, bridge or denture.
Dental implants are designed to look, feel and function just like your original tooth. Like your natural teeth, a dental implant should be cared for with daily brushing and flossing and other good oral hygiene practices. When you care for your implant properly, you can expect it to last a lifetime.
We welcome you to call Modern Dental at (217) 698-3400 to schedule your appointment with our caring dentists to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants in Springfield, Illinois!
