What to Expect From Dental Implant Surgery
From: American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons AAOMS
More and more people are getting dental implants to replace missing teeth. They're a long-term solution that is imbedded in your jawbone, just like your natural teeth. They even go your natural teeth one better, since they can't develop cavities. Plus, unlike fixed bridges or removable dentures, dental implants will not affect neighboring healthy teeth or lead to bone loss in the jaw. If properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
The oral and maxillofacial surgeons at University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) College of Dentistry have the specialized education and training in the complexities of the bone, skin, muscles and nerves involved, to ensure you get the best possible results.
