Dental Implants

Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth.

Implants have notable health and comfort advantages over other teeth replacement alternatives like crowns, bridges and dentures.

Why Should You Get Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the best option for your oral health while maintaining the look and feel of your real teeth

Your Natural Mouth

Unlike other teeth replacement options like dentures, bridges or crowns, a dental implant replaces your entire tooth, including the root. Why is this important? By replacing the full tooth, an implant replicates your natural tooth function with a strong foundation and comfortable biting and chewing. It feels completely natural!

Maintain Facial Structure

Here’s the truth, when you don’t replace the full root of the tooth, you will eventually experience bone resorption – or the thinning of the jaw bone which occurs with missing teeth. What’s the big deal about a thinning jaw bone? It actually changes your facial structure resulting in additional wrinkles around your mouth and even your teeth moving closer to your nose. Dental Implants maintain your jaw’s integrity, keeping your mouth strong and healthy.

BETTER ORAL HYGIENE

Dental implants can be cleaned and cared for in exactly the same way as natural teeth. No special tools or treatments like other teeth replacement alternatives.

CONFIDENCE

Perhaps the most significant benefit of dental implants is the renewed confidence you have with a comfortable, healthy and natural looking smile. All our patients agree that implants have helped restore their self-confidence and self-esteem.

About The Dental Implant Procedure

Virtually Pain-Free & Performed in One Day in Most Cases

Diagnosis & Planning

Your Board-Certified Oral Surgeon/Periodontist will place the implant under local anesthesia.

Implant Placement

The bone around the implant grows and actually integrates with the implant surface during the healing phase, which lasts between 3 weeks and a few months. This is process of osseointegration is what makes implants superior to other teeth replacement methods and allows your new “tooth” to feel and function like your natural teeth.

​Healing Phase

This is process of osseointegration is what makes implants superior to other teeth replacement methods and allows your new “tooth” to feel and function like your natural teeth.

Placement of Implant Abutment

​When healing is complete, we will place the final abutment, a small piece that connects the implant to the crown. An impression of the implant site will be taken to create the crown. At American Dental your custom abutment and crown is fabricated locally in Chicago. No sub-standard overseas parts used!

​Final Crown

The final crown is returned from the local lab and will be placed by your American Dental Specialist.
