A team is only as strong as its weakest player, and that applies to your teeth as well. The loss of even one tooth can throw off the equilibrium of your smile, causing surrounding teeth to tip or drift. It can also impact your ability to chew and speak, placing stress on jaw joints, and leading to reduced support of your facial muscles. Luckily, dental implants can restore the balance in your mouth, giving you an all-star smile that harmonizes with your physiology. Dr. John G. Kostides D.D.S. is the top-rated dentist for dental implants in Merrillville and we're here to help you understand your tooth replacement options. Call any time to schedule an appointment with a dental implant dentist in Merrillville, Indiana.
Dentals implants are small, sturdy, titanium posts that act like a natural tooth’s root structure. Titanium metal is used because it's naturally compatible with bone and oral tissues. The implant will be placed into your upper or lower jaw bone and over time the bone will naturally grow around the implant, allowing for crowns, bridges, or overdentures to be placed if necessary.
If you’re missing a single tooth or several teeth as a result of injury or disease, dental implants could be a wonderful option for you. These dentures alternatives can serve as anchors for crowns, bridges, or dentures down the line.
Not only do they restore the equilibrium of your mouth structure, but dental implants also make chewing and speaking easier. Implants are natural looking, giving you a complete smile that yields confidence and leaves an impression. They’re also durable as long as they’re given the same maintenance as your natural teeth with proper brushing, flossing and regular checkups.
At Dr. John Kostides DDS, we believe all of our patients deserve outstanding hygiene and unparalleled smile confidence. Drop us a line and we’ll set up a complimentary evaluation to see if dental implants are right for you.
