Missing even one of your teeth can make it difficult to chew and speak, impacting your quality of life.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that support custom restorations to restore your oral function and appearance.
Serving Rockford, IL, Dr. Mohamad Alkassir can provide dental implant treatment to help you look and feel your best.
What Are Dental Implants?
Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jaw. These posts act as artificial tooth roots and support restorations such as dentures, dental bridges, and dental crowns.
Dental implants also provide amazing bone-saving benefits. When you lose a tooth, the jawbone no longer receives the stimulation the tooth roots once provided, and the bone can begin to deteriorate.
Implants replace the tooth roots, giving the jaw the stimulation it needs to stay healthy. They are the only tooth replacement option that offers this advantage.

Achieve Candidacy With Our Supplementary Care
Some Rockford, IL, patients may not be ready for dental implants now — but they can qualify after preparatory procedures. Our dental team offers bone grafting, tooth extraction, and gum disease treatment, all in house. We'll be glad to help you start your journey towards successful implant treatment.
Even If You Don't Qualify for Implant-Supported Dentures You May Be Eligible for All-on-4
Patients without enough jaw bone tissue for traditional implants don't necessarily need to get bone grafting. Our knowledgable dentist also offers the All-on-4 method. This advanced treatment needs fewer implants than other implant-supported dentures.
With All-on-4, four strategically placed implants will keep your dentures fully in place for years to come. And, like with other kinds of dental implant-supported restorations, they will stimulate your jaw tissue to improve your overall bone health.
The Dental Implant Timeline
Dental implants offer maximum stability for restorations, as well as incredible bone-saving benefits for your jaw health. We can customize your implant treatment plan to meet your unique needs.
All that is left is to enjoy your new smile!

Aftercare Tips for Dental Implant Patients
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
You can care for your new restorations just like you would for your natural teeth. Floss once a day and brush at least twice a day with a soft-bristled brush.
Visit Your Dentist for Regular Checkups
Continue attending routine checkups with your dentist. He can help you maintain your oral health and catch any potential issues before they grow.
Practice Good Oral HabitsAvoid biting your nails and using your teeth as tools, like for opening packages. Be mindful of especially hard or sticky foods like ice, nuts, or caramel, as they could potentially damage your restorations.
