The Facts About Dental Implants

At The Chicago Family Dental Center, we understand that you’re busy, and that saving time is something most people strive to do. Historically, many dental treatments have required two or more visits to complete—but did you know that modern dentistry has made it possible for our team to finish many treatments in a single day? In fact, sometimes, even a dental implant can be placed in just a day.

With modern dental techniques, you could have a dental implant or a crown placed in a single visit. There are several factors that could contribute to this increased speed, including improved techniques, computer imaging, and other innovations.

Still, even with these improved practices, not every implant can be placed in a single day. But even if your treatment does take two visits to complete, please know that implants are designed to look and feel like a natural tooth. Furthermore, implants actually fuse to your jaw bone—making them even sturdier. Implants are also extremely durable. In fact, they could last for years if you care for them well.

Do you have more questions about the benefits of a dental implant? Are you interested in learning more about your restoration options? If so, we invite you to give The Chicago Family Dental Center a call at 312.551.0500. Our dentist, Dr. Gary Wegmann, and our team will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
