Dental Implants in Portage Park
Dental Implants are an excellent way to replace missing teeth. Implant is invisible to your eye, as it replaces the root of the tooth. Having an implant gives you a huge advantage over other options, such as preserving bone, being able to floss between teeth, and get you the closest to the lost chewing capacity. They offer the greatest long term results. Dental Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple implants can be used to support a full denture.
What to expect
We will get your tissue numb by placing a topical gel and then get you fully numb with anesthetic. You might feel pressure but please let us know if you feel any pain so that we can get you more comfortable. We will take one or a few x-rays throughout the procedure to make sure we have the accurate angulation and depth. You might leave seeing something metallic in your mouth, which is called an abutment. That will stay temporarily for the duration of the healing process and then we will exchange that to a crown, but we often don’t place these healing abutments and cover the implant with your gums, until the healing phase is complete.
We will go over all the post op instructions, go over your pain medications and have you enjoy our post op goody bag. We will see in you 2 weeks for evaluation and removal of sutures
