Dental Implants in Northbrook, IL
An implant is a small metal screw that is surgically placed into the jawbone to support a custom dental restoration. It is made of titanium, a material that is well accepted by the human body. It will also provide stimulation for the bone, preventing bone deterioration. During a healing period of about three to six months, the implant will fuse with the surrounding bone. This creates a durable and stable foundation for the replacement teeth.
The type of restoration used will depend on how many teeth the patient is missing. For a single missing tooth, one dental implant will be placed to anchor a dental crown. For multiple consecutive missing teeth, two or more implants will secure a dental bridge. Four or more dental implants will be used to support a full denture for patients who are missing an arch of teeth.
All-on-4 Dental Implants
If you are missing one or both arches of teeth, Dr. Stein can replace those teeth with a revolutionary new concept using implants. All-on-4® is an advanced method that uses four dental implants to anchor a fixed denture to replace a row of teeth. This is a great option for people who do not qualify for implants since they have some bone loss. This treatment technique works by surgically placing the four implants in specific positions in the jaw bone.
Dr. Stein will surgically insert two anterior implants that will be vertical and two posterior implants that will be placed at a 45 degree angle. This method allows Dr. Stein to use the jawbone that is available and the patient does not need to get a bone graft. He can immediately secure a temporary denture after the implants are placed. In just one day, a patient missing all their teeth can have them replaced using the All-on-4 implant treatment.
