Chew in Comfort with Dental Implants in Arlington Heights, IL
If you're missing teeth due to age, disease, or an accident, you might find it hard to chew and speak-but you can restore these abilities and your smile. At Prospect Periodontal & Implant Center, we provide Arlington Heights, IL with dental implant surgery.
Unlike bridges and partials, dental implants are secured into the jaw bone, just like your natural teeth are. They are usually made of titanium, a metal that's received well by the body with no side effects. Dr. Robert Ryan caters his services to meet your needs and ensure your implants will serve you well for many years.
Our Dental Implant Process
First steps: When you first come to our office for dental implants, Dr. Ryan performs a diagnostic screening to determine whether implants are the right choice for you. If they are, he designs a treatment plan that fits your needs.
After establishing the treatment plan, Dr. Ryan works with your restorative dentist, who designs the prosthesis for your dental implants.
The procedure: We offer anesthesia options to ensure your comfort during the dental implant procedure. There is minimal pain involved, but you'll still want to rest during the next day or two. You'll also eat soft foods, take antibiotics, and use oral rinses for as long as needed.
After care: For the few months after your procedure, you'll meet with Dr. Ryan for routine examinations. During this time, your bone and tissues will heal around the dental implant. If you decide on a new implant with trabecular metal technology, the imbedding period will last just one month.
After your mouth heals the crown or the prosthesis will be placed onto the implant. You should then be able to chew as normal.
With proper care and follow-up, your new implants can last a lifetime.
