Reclaim Your Smile: Exploring Solutions for Missing Teeth | Periodontist Skokie

Are you embarrassed to show your smile due to missing teeth? Many individuals experience a diminished sense of self-confidence as a result of missing teeth. As a result of modern dentistry, our team can not only replace the gaps in your smile, but also create long-term replacements that look and feel just like your natural teeth. There are several options available to you. The following are a few of the most common solutions for tooth replacement.


For those who have lost many or all of their teeth, dentures are an ideal solution. Our team will create a customized set of dentures based on an impression of your mouth taken in the office. We will make sure the fit is correct, and can make any necessary adjustments. Furthermore, we will provide you with all the information you need to maintain your dentures, including how to clean them with a non-abrasive cleanser. With dentures, you will be able to enjoy a realistic and aesthetically pleasing smile.


Dental bridges are sometimes referred to as partial dentures. Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth. By using them, you can prevent the existing teeth from sliding into the empty spaces left by your missing teeth. The replacement teeth are attached to your surrounding teeth by means of bridges. The bridge can be customized to look like your natural teeth; no one will be able to tell the difference between the two.

Dental Implants

There is no better way to replace a missing tooth than with dental implants. A dental implant can last a lifetime with proper care, unlike dentures, which may need to be replaced after a few years. During implant placement, our team will ensure that your gum tissue and bone support are healthy enough to anchor the implant. To guarantee that your implant has a strong, stable foundation, additional preparations may be necessary, such as a bone graft.

Your smile can be improved by filling in the gaps. Based on your individual needs, our team can help you choose the right tooth replacement solution for you. It is important to fill the gaps left by missing teeth in order to prevent gum disease and tooth shifting. Furthermore, dentures, bridges, and implants can improve the quality of your speech and make you more comfortable when speaking.

We invite you to schedule a consultation with our team if you are missing teeth.
