A missing tooth can oftentimes leave you feeling embarrassed or self-conscious about your smile. That is why our team here at David A. Browne, DDS, PC in McHenry, Illinois, is happy to tell you about dental implants and how they can restore your smile and keep your jaw healthy and strong.

Dental implants are a dental procedure where a titanium post is surgically implanted in your jaw. This implant acts as the root of a tooth and will bind to the bone and gum tissue. This will help keep your jawbone strong, so your cheeks do not droop from the bone loss that can occur if a tooth is empty for too long. When it is healed, your dentist, Dr. David A. Browne can restore the look of your implant with a dental crown placed over it. This will blend in with your teeth and give your smile full function again.

There are other uses that dental implants can provide, such as keeping dentures in place, or holding in a dental bridge if you have multiple missing teeth. Dental implants are extremely strong and durable, which can help your smile stay healthy and strong for years to come.
