Dental Implants in Gurnee, IL
Currently, the best option for tooth replacement are dental implants. This procedure gives us the ability to replace multiple teeth, offer support for a dental bridge, and provide a full arch to our patients. A small titanium post is established beneath the gums as replacement for the root of the tooth. Once we build a sturdy base, a prosthetic tooth can be set on top. Dental implants fuse gradually with the patients jawbone to give the patient ultimate stability after any degree of tooth loss.
With dental implants, the integrity of the underlying jawbone is conserved while replacing the teeth. Missing teeth and jawbone deterioration could cause face drooping and a host of other maxillofacial issues. We can stop this process in its tracks by stimulating the jaw and preserving teeth that are still functional and healthy.
Our team is here to consult with you and if you decide to proceed with the procedure, you will be asked to come in for a pre-procedure exam. During this evaluation, we will take xrays, ct scans or models of your teeth to help us determine what the best treatment option is. This exam is easy, painless and only takes about an hour.
Sedation options will be discussed prior to your surgery. We offer anesthetic medicine to help our patients relax and sleep during the dental implant procedure. We start by removing the necessary teeth and setting the dental implant into the jawbone. We then secure the replacement teeth onto the implant and send our patients home with a beautiful smile from day one. Implants take anywhere from 3- 6 months to fully integrate with bone tissue. Once this healing process is finalized, we then connect permanent dentures or bridges to the implant for a lifetime of dental functionality and a beautiful, dazzling smile.
