Bone Grafting Dentist in Des Plaines, IL

Strengthen the bones in your face by visiting the practice of Jeffrey Halpern, DDS. Our surgeon is the only bone grafting dentist in Des Plaines, IL, in part because it's a tricky skill. This process involves replacing missing bone in the event of jaw or oral trauma. He does this by placing bone grafts in places where no or little bone exists, particularly in implant sites. Bone grafts serve as treatment for everything from congenital defects to traumatic injuries and tumor surgery.

Our facial trauma surgeon has the necessary decades of experience and knowledge to develop a treatment plan for whatever you need. No matter where in your mouth the issue is or how it happened, it's nothing we can't handle. We offer oral reconstructive surgery that provides a solid foundation for improved speech and eating habits. If you have teeth missing, we can accompany the surgery with dental implants to replace them.

Our Bone Graft Dentist Gets You Ready for Implants

Dental implants bring an abundance of benefits, but only if you have the jaw bone necessary to support them and keep them in place. Our bone graft dentist ensures that you do by taking a section of bone from another area and grafting it onto your jaw bone. The graft creates strong new bone for a stable implant, and you'll be ready for brand new teeth.

Depending on your health and needs, the surgery could be major or minor. Even for minor surgeries, be sure to bring an adult driver with you to make sure you get home okay, and refrain from eating or drinking for six hours before your appointment. Please let us know if you're on any regular medications and if you have any questions. Most importantly, avoid any and all tobacco. Smoking is one of the worst things you can do after an oral surgery, and the longer you stay away from it, the better.
