Dental Implants

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

Dentist talking with happy patient

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.

Consultation

During your initial consultation at our Greater Rockford, IL, dental clinic, your dentist will examine your mouth and discuss your medical and oral health history to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Preparatory Treatment

If you need a preparatory treatment like tooth extraction, bone grafting, or periodontal treatment, it must be completed before your dental implants are placed. 

Implant Placement

Your dental implants will be surgically placed directly into your jaw. You will then be given time to heal and allow the implants to fuse to your jawbone in a process called osseointegration. This takes about three to six months. 

Temporary Restoration

In some cases, we can place a temporary restoration so you'll leave our office with a full smile.

Impressions

Once you are healed, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth in order to craft your custom dentures, crowns, or dental bridge. These impressions will be sent to a trusted lab to guide the creation of your restorations. 

Final Restoration

Once your bridge, denture, or crown is completed, you will have a fitting appointment at our Rockford dental practice. Your dentist will secure your restorations to your implants and make any necessary adjustments for optimal fit and comfort.

All that is left is to enjoy your new smile!

See How Implant-Supported Dentures Work

Four to six implants are placed along one or both dental arches. Then, abutments are attached to the implants. Finally, our dentist will secure your dentures to the implants for superior stability and bone health. Your results will look entirely natural, like real teeth.

Aftercare Tips for Dental Implant Patients

It is important to remember that your dentures, bridges, or crowns will wear over time and will eventually need replacing. However, with proper care your restorations can last for 15 years or more, and your dental implants can last a lifetime. While our dentist is always here for emergencies, maintenance tips like these can help prevent potential problems.

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 Habits

Avoid 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.
