Tooth Replacement in Des Plaines, IL
Missing teeth isn't just a cosmetic problem; it's a serious oral health issue. Even one missing tooth can cause the others to shift in your mouth, affecting your chewing and speaking abilities and aging you prematurely. The best way to stop that from happening is to pay our practice a visit. Jeffrey Halpern, DDS, is qualified to perform single or multiple tooth replacement in Des Plaines, IL, through the use of implants. These are one of the more preferred methods, because they're as permanent and strong as natural teeth.
Bridges wear out your neighboring teeth, while implants give them support. Dentures can slide around in your mouth or get lost, and need replacement more than once. Tooth implants never need replacement so long as they are well cared for, and they never budge from their positions. They're also the closest to natural teeth in appearance, so no one can tell that you have them. As long as you're in good health and have enough bone to support them, you're probably a good candidate for our implants for teeth.
