Implants from our Ukrainian Village office offer some amazing restorative benefits for patients with tooth loss.

If you are looking for the next best thing to a real tooth, dental implants are the closest you can come. After all, implants are designed to feel, function, and even look like real teeth, allowing you to have a restoration you can feel confident in. Our Chicago dentist, Dr. Tariq Riyal of Miswak Dentistry in Ukrainian Village, IL, is proud to offer dental implants because they provide a lifelong solution for people facing tooth loss—read on to learn what this treatment can do for you.

Fully Restored Chewing

As anyone with missing teeth knows, it certainly isn’t as easy to chew food. As a result, you may not be able to eat all the foods you’ve loved or you may end up dealing with digestive issues because you aren’t chewing your food properly. Since implants function like natural teeth, the implant can easily take on the full chewing forces of your jaws. This means that you can eat what you love without worrying about your implant!

Very High Success Rate

When it comes to any dental work, you want a restoration that is going to last. Dental implants offer an extremely high success rate of up to 98 percent. Before undergoing implant treatment, your dentist will perform an x-ray screening of your mouth to make sure that you are a good candidate for the procedure. Healthy individuals will have the highest success rates when it comes to the health and longevity of their implant.

Prevent Bone Loss

This is probably one of the most unique advantages of receiving dental implants. After all, untreated tooth loss eventually results in bone loss, as well. However, by placing an implant into the jawbone (where it will effectively take the place of the missing tooth roots) we can provide the bone with the necessary stimulation it needs to stay healthy.

It’s a Long-Lasting Solution

If you want a restoration that will be able to last a long time, then nothing will come close to dental implants. Since they naturally fuse together with the jawbone, this means that the implant itself could last the rest of your life. In fact, it’s possible for implants to last as long as natural teeth with proper care.

Have you heard of Invisalign clear aligners from Ukranian Village dentist, Dr. Tariq Riyal in Chicago, IL? Using ingenious invisible bracesinvisalign which resemble teeth whitening trays, Dr. Riyal improves the alignment of crooked teeth so your smile is more appealing and healthier, too. Learn all you can about these clear braces and then decide if you'd like to try them. Millions of older teenagers and adults across the world have used Invisalign successfully.

The benefits of Invisalign

Many patients seek treatment with Invisalign in Ukranian Village, located in Chicago, because they dread the idea of metal or ceramic braces with their obvious appearance, dietary restrictions and time-consuming hygiene requirements. Then, as they learn about the system, they are even more convinced that Invisalign is a wonderful alternative to conventional orthodontics.

What are the benefits of Invisalign? Dr. Riyal says that Invisalign helps people with mild to moderate smile alignment issues such as:

  • Overjet
  • Overbite
  • Under bite
  • Cross bite
  • Open bite
  • Gaps
  • Spacing
  • Tooth rotation and tipping
  • Overcrowding
  • Need for orthodontic retreatment (teeth have shifted back to their original positions after braces were removed)

In other words, the aligners are truly versatile and appropriate for a variety of problems, leaving only the very complex to traditional bonded-on metal braces.

Additionally, Invisalign treatment is usually shorter--taking an average of one year as opposed to two to two and a half years with traditional braces. The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry says patients feel much more comfortable as they can remove their appliances to brush, floss and eat, and progress checks are quick and easy. Dr. Riyal sees his Invisalign patients every four to six weeks to ensure treatment is on track, and he delivers the next aligner pairs in the care plan.

Patients also enjoy that they can remove their aligners for important occasions such as job interviews, graduations, and weddings although the appearance of the aligners is exceptionally discreet. The soft tissues of the mouth experience little to no discomfort as well, and wearers can eat whatever healthy foods they like without restriction.

Are you a candidate for Invisalign in Ukranian Village?

Through careful oral examination, X-rays, photos and three-dimensional imaging, Dr. Riyal can tell if Invisalign would benefit your particular situation. He stipulates that you wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours daily and remove them to eat. Also, good at-home and in-office hygiene is a must.

After treatment, Dr. Rival will advise wearing a retainer to keep your smile well-aligned.
