Dental Implants from board certified Specialists in periodontology & dental implant surgery
Decayed or missing teeth need never take the smile from your face, even if you’re having trouble eating, speaking, or socializing. Dental implants can spare you that embarrassment. Dental implants are made up of three main components: a threaded, screw-like titanium or zirconia post that takes the place of your tooth roots; a sturdy, natural-looking crown; and an abutment to connect the two parts. Dental implants are today’s preferred solution for missing teeth and with good reason: they look, feel, and function like natural teeth. With proper care, they may last a lifetime.
The implant surgeons at Periodontal Medicine & Surgical Specialists are board-certified periodontists: they have undergone years of additional training after dental school in order to become specialists in placing dental implants in Chicago, Oak Brook, and Park Ridge, IL patients. They are also passionate about furthering the field of implantology and have published numerous research and case studies. Their objective is to improve the patient experience and long-term results by taking an interdisciplinary approach to care. On the forefront of leading-edge dental implant techniques, our implant surgeons are trusted by hundreds of their patients and peers for life-changing implant treatment each year.
Your Dental Implants Experience
Unequaled Advantages of Dental Implants
When you are missing teeth, eating and speaking can be difficult and embarrassing. With dental implants, you can eat all your favorite foods and speak, smile, and laugh with total confidence.
Decayed teeth, cracked teeth, and gum disease often cause infections under the gums. This often results in bone loss and may also harm neighboring teeth. Missing teeth may result in a less stable or an altered bite and increased pressure on the remaining teeth. When teeth remain missing, there is slow, progressive bone loss at those sites. Dental implants help minimize these risks and allow you to comfortably enjoy a balanced and healthy diet.
Smile without shame. Speak without slurring your words. Dental implants can help bring back your distinctive look and voice, along with your self-confidence.
Services Related to Dental Implants
Depending on your current state of oral health and the amount of bone that is available, our implant surgeons may need to first perform other procedures that will help with future implant placement. If you have any decayed teeth, we can perform tooth extractions, usually the same day as implant placement, to make space for your dental implants. In cases of bone loss, we may need to rebuild your jawbone so that it can support implants. We can do this through a procedure called bone grafting or sinus grafting. We offer several tissue regeneration options to build back your lost bone. Our doctors will work with you on whatever is necessary to get your new teeth and a more fulfilling new life!
