When it comes to any type of dental work, you quite literally want to put your money where your mouth is and ensure your treatments create long-term, sustainable results!
At Meyer Dental Group, our dental implants in Mount Prospect are designed to live in your mouth permanently as they become bonded with the jaw bone tissue that they are implanted into — the fancy name for this is osseointegration.
After some time to heal, you should be able to feel how stable and secure your implant feels, thanks to this cool process!
To understand how long a dental implant lasts, it's important to note that the implant is made up of 3 key parts:
Among the components of dental implants, the implant itself can last a lifetime with care, regular dental check-ups and great oral hygiene. The crown itself can have a lifespan of 10–15 years or beyond if taken care of exceptionally.

Let's find out if dental implants are the right solution for you! There are numerous reasons why a smile may have a missing tooth or teeth. Tooth loss can occur as a result of an accident, gum disease, overcrowding, or genetics. When your smile is missing teeth, you may have a lack of confidence and feel of embarrassed. In addition, the lack of a full set of teeth can be detrimental to your overall mouth and body health.
At the Meyer Dental Group, we will carefully examine your mouth and take x-rays of your head, jaw and teeth to find out if dental implants are the right solution for you. We believe that finding value-worthy dental implants should be easy and we are committed to giving the patient easy, upfront information on the process and cost of a dental implant.
The dental implant is inserted into the jawbone, and then the false tooth also called a “pontic”, is attached. Made of titanium or zirconium (for more biologic metal-sensitive patients) which blends well with bone, implants create a strong support structure that will hold your false tooth to your jaw – for the rest of your life.
Once your implant is installed, the artificial tooth is installed. Unlike dentures, these teeth are not removable; they are permanent and behave like your natural teeth.
