Our Restorative Dentistry Services Include:
The most common treatment for a missing tooth is a dental implant. Implants consist of a titanium post covered by a crown or denture.
Getting a dental implant for one or more missing teeth can take up to three months for the entire process. Most of that time period is set for healing and allowing your jaw bone to integrate with the titanium implant. The great news is that you won’t have a missing space while the tooth heals. We are able to use a temporary crown to cover the implant while it heals so you can get your confidence back and get back to normal activities, even before you get your permanent crown.
The end result is a tooth that looks and feels just like a real tooth. Get started with a 100% free dental implant consultation – call today!
When you think of dentures you probably imagine your grandma, grandpa, or another elderly person. Despite the stereotype, dentures aren’t just for seniors. Whether you are missing one tooth or many teeth, dentures are a common option to cover up missing teeth. Partial and full dentures do not replace teeth, like a dental implant, but they are an affordable option to consider.
If you do choose dentures over another tooth replacement option, then we recommend you educate yourself on some of the short and long term benefits and short falls of dentures. While they are an affordable option, they are not a permanent solution – you will need to remove them each night before bed, clean them daily, and be careful not to break them.
If you are interested in dentures then you have come to the right place. Our team at 1st Family Dental can offer a fast turnaround once the initial fitting is complete. While most offices require up to six weeks for the entire denture creation and fitting process, from the initial impressions to the final fitting, at 1st Family Dental of Elgin, we are proud to be able to offer “Next Day Dentures” for our patients.
Root canals are typically needed when a tooth has become damaged or infected, resulting in a toothache or injury to the pulp of the tooth. Root canals are performed to remove the infected tissue, effectively killing the tooth by taking away its roots. This root canal procedure has a bad reputation, but with new technology and years of advancement in techniques, the process is actually quite painless — not much different than a cavity filling in most cases.
After a root canal, the tooth will be covered with a crown that will look and feel like a real tooth. It will even be colored to match the rest of your teeth so no one will be able to tell the difference.
