Implant Dentistry at Palos Hills Dental

‘Grow’ New Teeth to Replace Missing Ones
Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth - Palos Hills IL Dental implants will look as if you grew new teeth where they were missing. The implant comes through the gums and gives the appearance of a natural tooth. Whether you need one or all of your teeth replaced, they will function and look just like real teeth for chewing and a beautiful smile. Implants may also be used to lock in dentures for a totally secure fit.We take care of the entire process from placement of the implant to fabrication of the crown, so you will not need to be referred to another office.

Another Option – Immediate Load Implants
In addition to regular implants, All-on-4™ immediate load implants give you another choice. Only four implants will permanently hold your dentures in place and they will never have to be taken out. It is easy to once again have a beautiful smile and functioning teeth in just one visit. The use of four to six implants will give strong support to your new teeth. Once they are placed in your mouth, you do not need to allow time for the bone to heal around it – any pressure from chewing will easily be withstood.

In the past, a patient was referred to an oral surgeon for placement of the implants. After the surgeon finished anchoring the posts, the dentist would place the teeth on the implants. There used to be a six-month waiting time for the completion of implants. At our practice, we secure the immediate load implants in one visit.

Tooth Decay and Sensitivity

What Causes Tooth Enamel Damage?
What happens when tooth enamel is damaged? The exposed part underneath becomes vulnerable to decay. Cavities aren't the only problem.

Teeth with damaged enamel can become sensitive to extreme temperatures. Suddenly, eating ice cream or sipping hot coffee can be painful or unpleasant.
