Woman With Dental ImplantsWhat's the best way to transform a smile with a missing tooth? Today's superior tooth replacement option is the dental implant. Expertly placed by your dentists in Des Plaines, Dr. Roman Dziubyk and Dr. Lorelei Grise', implants imitate real teeth in appearance, function and stability. Why settle for less?

The amazing dental implant

We don't exaggerate. Dental implants really are amazing. Of course, healthy natural teeth are tops in every way. However, sometimes tooth loss happens, causing unsightly gaps, poor oral function, deteriorated bone and gums and yes, embarrassment. Dental implants change all that as they are firmly inserted into the jaw and meld with the bone through a process known as osseointegration. Time and use increase the bone width and density, and the patient experiences a tooth replacement that seems fully natural. Your Des Plaines dentists use dental implants to anchor fixed bridgework and full dentures, too.

The single-tooth implant

You qualify for one if you have enough bone in your jaw as determined by visual examination, and X-rays. With a solid foundation in place, Dr. Dziubyk or Dr. Grise' places the implant device into the jawbone and sutures the gums closes so the site heals properly over the next several weeks to months.

When you return to Suburban Family Dental, your doctor will open the site again and bond a metal alloy post and porcelain crown onto the exposed implant. Then, your implant is ready for full use.

Implant care post procedure is very important. Your daily routine must include:

  • Brushing with a soft toothbrush--either manual or electric--twice a day
  • Flossing once a day with unwaxed floss
  • Twice yearly examinations and cleanings at Suburban Family Dental.
