Teeth may be a small part of your body, but they have several essential jobs. Your teeth are responsible for biting and chewing your food, starting the digestive process. Your teeth break down your food so that your body can easily access the nutrients it needs to stay healthy and strong. They allow you to form certain words and sounds when you speak. They are essential for a beautiful smile. Traditionally, bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures have been used to replace missing teeth. These methods are still used, but the advent of implants provides better fitting and functioning teeth replacements. NorthShore Family Dentistry is proud to offer the latest alternative to the old-school tooth replacement options — dental implants.
Implant dentistry improves the quality of life for anyone who is missing teeth or wearing dentures, allowing them to smile and chew with ease. Going to dinner with friends, ordering any food you want and chewing it without concern about dentures shifting provides confidence and enjoyment of life. Implant technology has changed the face of dentistry and that of patients who wish to regain their natural ability to chew and smile with confidence.
