Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of the teeth.
Implants have notable health and comfort advantages over other teeth replacement alternatives like crowns, bridges and dentures.

Why Should You Get Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the best option for your oral health while maintaining the look and feel of your real teeth
Your Natural Mouth
Unlike other teeth replacement options like dentures, bridges or crowns, a dental implant replaces your entire tooth, including the root. Why is this important? By replacing the full tooth, an implant replicates your natural tooth function with a strong foundation and comfortable biting and chewing. It feels completely natural!
Maintain Facial Structure
Here’s the truth, when you don’t replace the full root of the tooth, you will eventually experience bone resorption – or the thinning of the jaw bone which occurs with missing teeth. What’s the big deal about a thinning jaw bone? It actually changes your facial structure resulting in additional wrinkles around your mouth and even your teeth moving closer to your nose. Dental Implants maintain your jaw’s integrity, keeping your mouth strong and healthy.
Better Oral Hygiene
Dental implants can be cleaned and cared for in exactly the same way as natural teeth. No special tools or treatments like other teeth replacement alternatives.
Perhaps the most significant benefit of dental implants is the renewed confidence you have with a comfortable, healthy and natural looking smile. All our patients agree that implants have helped restore their self-confidence and self-esteem.
About the Procedure
Virtually Pain-Free & Performed in One Day in Most Cases
Diagnosis & Planning
Your American Dental implant team will plan your case and discuss treatment options with you.
Your Board-Certified Oral Surgeon/Periodontist will place the implant under local anesthesia.
The bone around the implant grows and actually integrates with the implant surface during the healing phase, which lasts between 3 weeks and a few months. This is process of osseointegration is what makes implants superior to other teeth replacement methods and allows your new “tooth” to feel and function like your natural teeth.
Placement of Implant Abutment
When healing is complete, we will place the final abutment, a small piece that connects the implant to the crown. An impression of the implant site will be taken to create the crown. At American Dental your custom abutment and crown is fabricated locally in Chicago. No sub-standard overseas parts used!
The final crown is returned from the local lab and will be placed by your American Dental Specialist.
Types of Implants
We offer multiple implant solutions to fit your specific dental needs
Single Tooth Implants
A single tooth implant is used when just one tooth is missing or damaged and the rest of the surrounding teeth are healthy. Unlike other traditional options, a single tooth implant is the ONLY solution which will not eventually compromise the health of adjacent teeth.
Multiple Teeth Implants
Multiple implants are used when more than one adjacent tooth is missing or damaged and must be extracted. It’s important to note that multiple teeth implants are installed WITHOUT the need for support from adjacent healthy teeth, which in the long run, will help prevent future dental problems.
Full Jaw All-On-4 Implants
A full jaw or “All-On-4” dental implant procedure replaces a full arch of your teeth (upper or lower), supported by only 4 dental implants. If you want the natural feel and stability that a full denture simply can’t provide, an All-On-4 procedure may be perfect for you.
