Dental implants are the state of the art way to replace missing teeth for our East Peoria, Peoria, Pekin, Washington, Metamora and Morton patients. They can be used to replace a single tooth or a full mouth of teeth. They are a terrific innovation in dentistry, making ill-fitting and uncomfortable dentures and bridges a thing of the past. Peoria dental implant dentist Dr. Hudson can help replace missing or lost teeth with permanent implants that will look and feel like your natural teeth.

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are titanium cylinders designed to mimic a tooth root and are gently and precisely placed into the jawbone. After proper healing, the tooth/teeth can then be attached to the dental implant(s). The result is an implant tooth that is made to look and feel as if it were your own natural tooth!

Why Do I Need Dental Implants?

Living without one or more of your teeth can be painful and unhealthy. It can also destroy your confidence, and make you reluctant to smile or speak naturally. When a tooth is extracted or lost due to decay or injury, the bone that held the tooth in the jaw is no longer stimulated. When that happens, the bone stops growing and is resorbed into the body. The teeth surrounding the missing tooth begin to shift into the empty space, causing misalignment of neighboring teeth. This, in turn, leads to greater chances of tooth decay, gum disease, and TMJ problems.

Dental implants reverse this loss. As long as you have enough bone to support the implant post, it can be surgically inserted into the bone. Over the space of the next few months, the post will bond to the bone, effectively becoming a part of your body's structure. The placement of the implant will stimulate the body to actually construct the bone cells necessary to bond to the implant. The result, if the implant is properly placed and your body responds as expected, is bone that is stronger and healthier than ever. The new tooth connected to the implant will then prevent shifting of the neighboring teeth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Self-esteem: You’ll gain the confidence to smile in pictures again with dental implants, as people likely won’t even be able to tell you have them.
  • Appearance: Implants can be customized to match an exact shade and shape, meaning they give you an improved smile that’s indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
  • Function: Due to their stable design and durable materials, implants come with no diet restrictions and allow you to speak normally.
  • Convenience: You can care for your dental implants like you would your natural teeth, unlike dentures that require special maintenance.
  • Comfort: Dentures can slip or fit improperly in the mouth, causing discomfort. Dental implants feel as comfortable as natural teeth.

Cost of Dental Implants

Dental implants are hands down the best option out there to replace missing teeth. Like anything that is the best, implant treatment is not cheap but instead a significant investment in your long term wellness. Establishing monthly payment plans is very common for our patients getting dental implant procedures. Our office works with several finance companies and will work with you to develop a payment plan to fit your budget.

All dental implant patients have varying needs of care, and thus costs for implant treatments are extremely variable. An examination and planning session is needed to determine an accurate cost for each individual.
