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.
Dr. Phil Herlihey and Dr. Mohamad Alkassir in Rockford, IL, 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.

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 hard or sticky foods like ice, nuts, or caramel, as they could potentially damage your restorations.
Insurance and Financing For Dental Implants
Most dental insurance plans do not cover the cost of dental implants. However, they may partially cover the cost of your restorations. We accept most dental insurance, as well as financing, to eliminate financial barriers and help patients enjoy the amazing benefits of dental implants.
