When you come to our oral surgery practice for dental implants, you will be seen by one of our expert oral surgeons, just one of whom is Dr. Alexis B. Olsson. Many patients come to our practice for dental implants because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you have missing teeth, you will be able to regain the ability to eat anything you like, and be able to talk and smile once again with total comfort and confidence. When you come to our oral surgery practice to get dental implants in Chicago IL, our oral surgeon will need to thoroughly examine your medical and dental history. If your jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough, our oral surgeon may recommend a certain type of procedure, such as bone grafting, which should make you an excellent candidate for getting dental implants. During the dental implant procedure, our oral surgeon will surgically insert a small titanium post into the jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. A titanium post is referred to as an anchor, and will act as the substitute for the tooth root. The jawbone bonds with the titanium root so that the new artificial tooth will have an extremely strong and secure foundation. There will then be small posts attached to the implant which protrude through the gums. These posts will serve as stable anchors for your new artificial teeth which can be permanently attached once the dental implant is fully fused to the jawbone. Your new dental implants will not only help your smile to look great, but they will also preserve your facial structure since the jawbone will not deteriorate due to the tooth root replacement.
