Dental Implants

When it comes to replacing a missing tooth, everyDental Implants dentist will recommend dental implants as the best choice if you have otherwise healthy gums and teeth. When a tooth is extracted, without a replacement, your adjacent teeth will start falling into the empty space and you will start losing bone mass in your jaw. This can result in your face developing a droopy look as well as expedite facial aging. It’s important to replace your missing tooth in order to maintain a proper bite for eating, tooth alignment and bone mass. Although implants are more on the expensive side of dental restorations, they are the closest replacement to real teeth. Dr. Roessler at Michael Roessler DDS in Mundelein can provide single, multiple, and denture supported implants for your needs.

The Procedure

Dental implants are only an option for patients who have healthy gums and sufficient bone mass in their jaw. Bone grafts and periodontal treatment may need to be an option before dental implants are considered. After Dr. Roessler has assessed that you are a candidate, your surgery will be planned. This will include the insertion of a titanium screw into your jaw done using a local anesthetic. The titanium screw is what is known as the dental implant. It will take your gums anywhere from 3 to 6 months to heal and accept the implant post. During this time, you will be given a temporary crown to wear so you can chew properly, and have a complete smile. Dr. Roessler will take impressions of your mouth to send to the lab for your permanent crown to be made. This will be cemented when your gums are completely healed. Your implant should last you for the rest of your life as long as you maintain healthy gums and do not damage your dental crown. Your smile will look and function completely naturally, not giving away that you have a false tooth.

Care for Your Implants

Caring for your implants is as easy as caring for yourdental implants natural teeth. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily and visiting us every 6 months for your cleaning. These steps will prevent you from developing periodontal disease. If periodontal disease or gum disease occurs, it is possible that your dental implants will fail and fall out. We also recommend that you quit smoking before your dental implants are placed in order to maintain your gum health and prevent your implants from failing. The only way you can physically damage your implants is by breaking the crown. This can happen due to physical harm either from grinding your teeth, clenching hard, or taking a physical blow to the mouth. In order to prevent harm to your crown, we recommend protecting your teeth by wearing mouth guard at night if you are prone to grinding or clenching your teeth, or if you play physical sports.

See What Patients Are Saying About Michael Roessler

  • Dr. Roessler, It was hard to envision what dental work could do for my awful smile. After the metal braces, my teeth were straight but chipped and yellow. They were so ugly. After the caps were put on, my whole appearance changed. I finally had beautiful white perfectly shaped teeth. It looked like I took excellent care of my teeth my whole life. My personality changed. I talk and smile more now. Thank you to the team who created my new smile, Dr. Roessler, Dr. Burkey, and Dr. Vravick.
