Anatomy of a Dental Implant in Des Plaines, IL   

Dental Implants in Des Plaines, IL

If you're looking for a solution to missing teeth, there's none better than our dental implants in Des Plaines, IL. Rather than fight shifting dentures that can get lost or worn out, you're better off wearing our permanent replacements that are surgically put in place. Jeffrey Halpern, DDS, offers tooth replacement options that are long-term. These offer far fewer problems than other solutions like bridges. As long as you take care of your implants, they'll never need replacing.

The majority of adults have lost at least one permanent tooth by the time they reach the 35-44 demographic, and not always through tooth decay. Accidents, gum disease, and failed root canals all take their toll on teeth. By age 74, 26% of adults have lost all of their teeth, so you're not alone in needing a dental implant. What's more, ours look so natural that no one will even be able to tell they're not your real teeth. They'll give you all the speaking and biting power you need with the look you want.

Our Dental Implant Dentist Works With Your Team

In order for your treatment to go well, our dental implant dentist works with both you and your restorative dentist, who makes the crown for the implant. We keep in constant touch with both of you to make certain that everything goes smoothly. First we start with an exam and S-ray, then our surgeon places the posts in your jaw. Then they stabilize and your dentist takes an impression of the upper and lower jaws to create the crown. We continue to work with your dentist on your follow-up care to give you the best new teeth possible.

What's a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a bit like cosmetic facial surgery in that it improves both your health and your appearance for the rest of your life. Implants are designed to replace teeth and are made of strong titanium and other materials. They're custom-made to fit your mouth exactly and don't have any negative impacts on your other teeth, your bones, or your gums. Because they're screwed into your mouth permanently, you never have to worry about losing or misplacing them like you would with dentures.

Implants have the flexibility to fill in for just one tooth or a whole bunch of missing teeth. Two or more implants can offer stable support for new teeth, and they look completely natural. No one but our trustworthy surgeon ever has to know that you have them.
