Replace missing teeth with dental implants in Chicago, IL

While no one wants to lose a tooth, advances in technology for placing dental implants have made the procedure safer and much more comfortable than it was in the past. Dental implants offer the best option because they replace the entire structure of a missing tooth. The dentists at Wicker Park Dental Group offer dental implants to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, so you can restore full functionality to your smile. 

Benefits of dental Implants

Dental implants are placed directly into your jaw bone by an oral surgeon to provide stimulation that puts a stop to bone resorption. Once the implant is placed, replacement teeth can provide support for any remaining teeth in your mouth and prevent them from shifting out of place or fracturing from uneven bite force when you chew. Ideally, implants are placed after your extraction site has healed, and you should allow your implants time to fuse to the bone before placing prosthetic teeth. 

With proper care, dental implants can provide a permanent solution to your missing teeth because they fuse in place in your jaw. Dental implants can also provide support for a dental bridge to replace several teeth in a row, or can support complete dentures

Placing All on 4 Dental Implants

When you need to replace all of your teeth, there are a few options to consider. Many patients prefer All-on-4 dental implants because they can be placed on the day of extraction and don’t require bone grafts. However, the drawback is you won’t have as much support on the back of your jaw for chewing. 

Full mouth dental implants replace each tooth individually. However, the cost is often too much for most patients to consider. Full mouth dentures can be set on as few as 5-6 dentures and still provide more support for your mouth than All-on-4 dentures, and they can be designed to be removable to reduce the stress on your jaw. The drawback is they still cost more, and they require more time to place. 

The dentist at Wicker Park Dental Group in Chicago, IL, will go over the benefits and drawbacks of all the ways you can replace your missing teeth, and help you decide the option that works best for you.

I went in yesterday due to cavity pain on one of my molars, I was very scared due to Covid-19 and just going to the dentist in general but knew the pain was only going to get worse if I didn't take care of it soon. I ended up needing a temporary crown and will be back in 2 weeks for my permanent crown and some other work. From start to finish everyone in the office made me feel very relaxed, welcomed, and safe. They seem to be taking every precaution for Covid-19 and included a symptom questionnaire before the visit as well as a temperature check prior to being checked in for the appointment. Doctor wore a mask the whole time as well as directed me on when to take mine off and on for his safety. The office was very clean and without dental insurance they clearly laid out my payment options. I'm glad I chose their office during this time and look forward to getting my dental health on track.

Visited due to my dentist not being open after 2pm(???...) so had an emergency and called them up. They took me in within 30 minutes of calling and started the process for a root canal. Came the next day and got second of 3 phases done. One thing, they are open late. Second, the staff is extremely nice and helpful as well as understanding with insurance concerns. The Dr. and assistant were very courteous to my pain needs and did everything they could to alleviate any pain. This is not some scam in an out place. They do take their time. They give you a shot then let you sit and watch tv for a little while to let it come on. So this is not exactly the fastest dentist you will go to if you have work needs. But they are absolutely thorough. They are gentle and caring. I recommend 100%. We all fear the dentist but this is a place that I don't feel judged, they care for my pain, and have a definite plan to get me on the right path.

I was SO incredibly nervous about having a root canal done because I always really struggle to stay numb during dental procedures. I am such a baby that I am more scared of tooth procedures than I am of actual surgery... I talked to the docs at Wicker Park Dental and they worked with me to make sure I was comfortable the entire time, and they really made sure I was at ease. I had less pain with this root canal than I've had in the past with even small cavities, and I'm so thankful that they listened to my concerns and helped get me taken care of! Everyone inside was incredibly nice, they checked on me constantly and adjusted any time I needed anything, and the office is clean and beautiful. Highly, highly recommend!
