If you’re looking for dental implants in Peoria, look no further than 83rd Marketplace Dental Care.
Dental implants are a great choice if your teeth have been damaged. They are strong, stable, and long-lasting; and when done by the expert dentists at 83rd Marketplace Dental Care, they will look, feel, fit, and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants are an affordable and convenient solution to help you restore your smile.
You can feel confident with dental implants.
In fact, over half a million people had dental implants placed last year in the United States because it’s a proven procedure with multiple advantages:
- Durability – With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
- Stability – Unlike dentures that can slip or shift within your mouth, dental implants are securely anchored to your jawbone.
- Protection – Dental implants preserve your jawbone and help protect surrounding teeth from damage.
- Convenience – Dental implants don’t need to be removed for cleaning like dentures do.
- Comfort – Because they fuse with your jawbone over time, dental implants become permanent fixtures in your mouth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth.
The team at 83rd Marketplace Dental Care will walk you through every step of the process so you feel comfortable. First, metal posts are placed into your jawbone below the gum line. Then, the dental implant is mounted securely on these posts, giving you a brand-new tooth! Not only will this improve the aesthetics of your smile, but it will also increase functionality—chewing and speaking should now be easier than ever before! And because they’re permanently fixed in place, unlike dentures that need to be removed periodically throughout the day or night, you can go about living life as usual without worrying about them slipping out of place at embarrassing moments.

Abutment and Placement
Most implants have three pieces: the implant that goes in your bone, the abutment (or connector) that holds the tooth, and the crown tooth that attaches to the abutment. The crown is shaped like a tooth and made to look like the others around it so that it is not obviously false. Abutments are made of different materials, most commonly titanium, but they can also be made of gold or zirconia. A special type of dental cement is used to keep the crown attached to the abutment. Well made dental implants have a very tight connection between the implant and the abutment. This is important for the long-term maintenance of your bone around the implant.
Here at 83rd Marketplace Dental Care, our goal is to create healthy smiles that patients are proud to show off. For some patients, our All-on-4® dental implant restoration is the ideal solution.
With the All-on-4 process, patients who are in danger of losing all or most of their upper and/or lower teeth will enjoy durable, long-lasting replacements that function and feel like normal teeth. Best of all, you can avoid the need for loose, restrictive dentures.
A bridge is a restoration for two or more missing teeth in a row. Common restorations like fixed bridges or removable partials can cause the surrounding bone to weaken because they are dependent on adjacent teeth for support. However, implant-supported bridges integrate with the natural bone, providing a much stronger and more natural restoration.
An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture (a removable partial denture or a complete denture that covers and rests on one or more remaining natural teeth, the roots of natural teeth, and/or dental implants) that is supported by, and attached to, implants. A regular denture rests on the gums and is not supported by implants.
Individual Dental Implants
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line to replace the tooth's root. It is then topped with a crown after healing to provide the appearance of a natural, healthy tooth. If you're considering implants, you must have healthy gums and a jaw bone that is strong enough to secure and support the post.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are an alternative to conventional implants. As implied by the name, they are about half the width of regular implants. Mini implants are often suggested for patients whose bone width is not dense enough to support regular implants. These mini-implants can be used to stabilize dentures or a restoration for a small tooth, front tooth or teeth located in a narrow space.
Teeth in a Day
Patients who are in need of a full upper and/or lower teeth restoration have the option to have a brand new smile in just one day. Teeth in a Day are created with dental implants, which securely hold the new teeth in place. It is an ideal alternative to dentures and gives patients a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
