Chicago Dentist Answers Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

At Smile Chicago, Sheldon Seidman, DDS uses implant dentistry to fill gaps left behind from missing teeth, prevent future dental health issues, and rejuvenate the smile's appearance

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2016) - According to Dr. Sheldon Seidman, dental implant surgery is one of the most exciting procedures currently available in cosmetic and restorative dentistry. With the ability to repair both the form and function of a patient's bite, the Chicago dentist says this solution for missing teeth can improve a patient's ability to chew and speak with ease while simultaneously providing beautiful, natural-looking results. To help dental implant candidates better understand their options in regard to the missing tooth replacement, Dr. Seidman recently addressed frequently asked questions that he hears from his patients at Smile Chicago.

"Replacing a missing tooth not only restores the integrity of your smile but can also prevent the adjacent teeth from shifting, reduce the risk of infection, and help prevent future tooth loss," says Dr. Seidman. He goes on to highlight that, compared to traditional dentures and bridges, dental implants can feel more comfortable in the mouth and require no additional maintenance or inconvenient adhesives. With so many obvious benefits, his patients at Smile Chicago often ask if they are good candidates for this innovative procedure.

Dr. Seidman notes that ideal candidates for dental implants will have sufficient jawbone density to receive the implant. However, there are other options -- such as plate form dental implants or a subperiosteal implants -- that can serve as successful alternatives for patients who still seek a more stable and natural-looking alternative to more traditional tooth replacement methods. Ultimately, Dr. Seidman says the choice of dentist will play a significant role in the outcome of dental implant surgery. When choosing the best dentist for dental implants, he recommends carefully researching the credentials and experience of each provider, as well as viewing smile galleries and reading patient testimonials to further inform this important decision.

Since cost can also play a big role in a patient's decision about dental implant surgery, Dr. Seidman encourages patients to investigate the payment options offered by the prospective practice. At Smile Chicago, Dr. Seidman provides a number of financing options that can enable his patients to comfortably afford the dental work to restore and maintain their oral health.

Overall, the Chicago dentist advises those considering dental implants to do their research and not hesitate to ask questions and express concerns during their consultation. By doing so, he believes patients can make a more informed decision about their care, finding the best solution for their needs.
