Our periodontists in Chicago, Oak Brook, and Park Ridge, IL start with personalized attention and service, getting to know you, your concerns, and your current state of dental health, then collaborating with you to determine the best course of treatment. This means not only addressing any issues you may already be experiencing, but providing proactive, preventive care that will help you avoid more serious ones in the long term. To this aim, we use techniques, procedures, and technology that offer the most predictable, positive outcomes for you. Our proven results—in the form of an extensive series of case studies and countless gratified patients—speak for themselves. With a staff made up of board-certified periodontists and dental implant surgeons with numerous years of additional training beyond dental school, we are highly qualified to place your dental implants, and a variety of other surgical and non-surgical procedures to improve the quality of your life.

Reclaim your health, your beautiful smile, and your confidence with replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth—and have the potential to last a lifetime with proper care.

We offer several revolutionary and innovative tissue regeneration treatments that use your body’s own natural healing abilities in order to put your oral health in excellent condition and make you a candidate for life-transforming dental implants. We also use stem cell therapy to recapitulate de-novo bone formation to not just repair, but truly regenerate, bone and periodontal tissues back to health.
Surgically Facilitated Orthodontic Therapy, or SFOT, uses a modern and safe way to straighten teeth and restore complete oral health. It begins with imaging diagnostics and tooth movement simulation software to understand where teeth need to be positioned for the patients face/smile, bite, and airway. This approach provides novel risk assessment of the available bone around the teeth and highly personalizes an individuals orthodontic plan. When needed, fortifying the jawbone (the foundation of the smile) by SFOT can help transform a vulnerable periodontium away from future gum recession problems and may also help avoid tooth extraction as apart of the orthodontic plan. It can even restore receding gums and gain oral cavity volume for the tongue as apart of the interdisciplinary process.
My teen daughter saw Dr. Mandelaris for a frenectomy. The entire staff and doctor were amazing. Beautiful results! They are very thorough and listened to all of my questions. No questions, Dr. Mandelaris is the person to see in this area for any periodontal procedure based on the skill lever of treatment, results, and overall patient care.
