Dentist in Waukegan
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into a patient’s jawbone to support permanent replacement teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants never need to be removed for cleaning, and they allow for more comfortable eating and speaking. Our doctors work closely with and will refer you to the best oral surgeons and periodontist to have the substructure placed. After a period of healing, our doctors will then restore the permanent replacement tooth above the gumline.
All-On-4 is a long-term solution for replacing all natural teeth. This treatment uses four titanium dental implants to permanently support a set of beautifully-crafted dentures.
Benefits of All-On-4 tooth replacement include less time spent in treatment and healing than when compared to individual implants. In many instances, All-On-4 can be placed within one day. Healing time can vary but is substantially shorter than treatment plans involving numerous dental implants.
The process of receiving All-On-4 involves evaluation, treatment and healing. Our experienced team will start by providing a consultation to learn about your desires and needs. We will then perform a complete evaluation of the structure of your mouth. The next step involves placing four dental implants for the best possible results. The proper placement of these implants is crucial. The experienced doctors of Greenwood Dental are trained and qualified, resulting in the highest success rates. Unlike other options, All-On-4 can work in areas where bone loss has occurred, making it a more ideal option for those who have suffered from ill-fitting dentures.
Once the implants are placed, a custom-crafted, beautiful full set of dentures is secured using the four implants as an anchor. These dentures are permanent and do not require removal. This means you can eat and sleep with your dentures in, just as you would with natural teeth. There will be no need for denture soaking or glue.
