Dental Implants

If you suffer from missing teeth, chances are you don't like to smile. There's no reason to go through life without smiling, so maybe it's time to consider dental implants. The procedure will take some time, but the end results are well worth the wait. Plus, the success rates of dental implants are one the highest of all dental procedures.

The process has a few steps and will take about six months from start to finish:
  • First, the dental implant posts will be surgically placed into your jawbone. Once placed, you will need to wait until your jawbone completely heals around the posts. This process will permanently fuse the posts into your bone and it takes about three to four months.
  • Second, once your jawbone has healed, you will need to return to our office to have your temporary crowns placed. These temporary crowns are used to allow the gums to heal and reshape around the tooth. Typically this will take about two months.
  • Finally, once your gums have healed, then you can return for your permanent crowns. After these crowns are placed, you are ready to show the world your new smile.

If you are one of the many people living in the Chicago area who are ashamed of your smile because you are missing teeth, please contact the Colonial Dental Group for a consultation. We provide dental implants to Chicago and surrounding areas. We can assess your particular case and develop a treatment plan that will work best for you and give you the results you desire.
