What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants themselves are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed below the gumline and into the jawbone to restore the root structure of missing teeth. Due to their biocompatibility, they’re able to fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, providing necessary blood flow and support to the bone to keep it from deteriorating over time. Once the implants have fused with the bone, our team can secure a customized crown, bridge, or denture to them to complete your smile.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  1. The Initial Consultation. The first step of any dental implant journey is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Khan. She’ll gather diagnostic images of your mouth and go over your dental and medical history with you to help determine whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
  2. Dental Implant Surgery. Once you’ve agreed to move forward with treatment, Dr. Khan will schedule your dental implant placement surgery. To secure the implants into your jawbone, she’ll make a small incision in your gums.
  3. Osseointegration & Abutment Placement. Over the next three to six months, you’ll undergo a healing process as well as osseointegration, where your implants will fuse with the jawbone. Once this is complete, we’ll be able to attach small, metal connector pieces to your implants, called abutments.
  4. Securing the Restoration. As soon as your customized prosthetic arrives at our office, we’ll call you back in to secure it to your abutments and complete your smile.

Dental implants in Mount Prospect offer a wide range of unique advantages that make them stand apart from traditional solutions for tooth loss, like dentures and dental bridges. Not only do dental implants offer a long lifespan, but their natural look and feel can truly be life-changing benefits for patients, allowing you to go about your day-to-day life with more confidence and improved eating and speaking abilities.

Who Dental Implants Can Help

Dental implants are a versatile treatment because they’re able to help patients experience a wide range of tooth loss situations, from a single missing tooth to an entire arch. Once Dr. Khan has examined your mouth during your consultation, she’ll draw up a personalized treatment plan to walk you through so you know how we can restore your smile. Based on your unique situation, we may recommend any of the following pathways to a complete smile.

Missing One Tooth

For a single gap, we can secure one dental implant below the gumline. Once it has fused with the bone, we can place the abutment and a customized dental crown to complete the arch, making eating and speaking easier.

Missing Multiple Teeth

If you’re missing two or more consecutive teeth, we can secure a dental bridge to two implants placed on either edge of the gap in your smile. This will eliminate the need for altering your natural teeth in order to secure a traditional crown.

Missing All of Your Teeth

To restore an entire row of teeth, we can place anywhere from four to six dental implants along the arch. These will create a strong and sturdy foundation for a customized denture to be attached to with the ability to restore up to 80% of your original bite power. If you have suffered from jawbone deterioration, you may also be a good candidate for an All-on-4 implant denture.
