Dental ImplantsMissing teeth? Dental implants can fill in your smile's gaps and improve your look. Dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone and capped with crowns. Dental implants offer many advantages over other tooth replacement options. Dr. Scott Szatkowski a dentist serving Elk Grove Village and Melrose Park, IL, offers dental implants. Here are five benefits of dental implants.

1. Beautiful Appearance- You will look and feel great with dental implants. Dental implants can improve the appearance of your smile and make you look younger. Dental implants have a natural, beautiful appearance. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, and crowns can be made with all-ceramic materials. 

2. Stop Jawbone Loss- Dental implants can keep your jawbone healthy and strong. Dental implants stop and prevent jawbone loss and stimulate jawbone growth. Getting dental implants soon after losing a tooth helps prevent jawbone loss at the site. 

3. Prevent Teeth Shifting- Dental implants can prevent your original teeth from shifting out of place. If you don't replace your missing teeth with dental implants, the adjacent teeth will begin to shift into the empty spaces. This puts your original teeth at risk for fractures and damage. 

4. They're Long Lasting- Dental implants are designed to last a long time — upwards of 25 years. If you take good care of your dental implants, they may even last a lifetime. Other tooth replacement options typically last between 5 to 15 years before needing to be replaced.

5. You will enjoy food again- Our teeth help us break down food for proper digestion. If you are missing teeth, you may have difficulty chewing certain foods. Dental implants function like your natural teeth. With dental implants, you will be able to eat anything you want, whenever you want.
