Dental Implants

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implant treatments are the most ideal, long-term solution for replacing missing or extracted teeth. An implant, made of surgical-grade titanium alloy, is placed in the jawbone and heals along with the bone. Within a few months after placement, dental implants integrate into the jawbone and are then able to support a tooth, bridge, or other dental device. Implant dentists often need to be more specialized, but oral surgeons are the best equipped to handle any wisdom tooth extraction, from standard to complicated cases.

Whether one tooth needs to be replaced or an entire jaw needs teeth, dental implants offer a strong foundation to support crowns, bridges, and dentures. The tooth implant works like a tooth root, providing the foundation to support a dental restoration.

Patients love dental implants because they look, feel, and function like the natural teeth. Precision is essential to ensure accurate placement of implants, which is why experienced surgeons should only perform this treatment.

ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS THE RIGHT TOOTH REPLACEMENT FOR ME?

If you need to replace missing teeth with a dental restoration, then don’t overlook the benefits of dental implants. The first step is to talk to our experienced team to see if dental implants are right for you. Good candidates need to meet several requirements:

  • Missing or plan to be missing one or more teeth
  • Looking for dental restorations designed to last a lifetime
  • Desire to restore the appearance of the smile by filling in gaps due to missing teeth
  • Struggling with severely damaged teeth

Most patients are good candidates for dental implants, however it is necessary to have sufficient oral health and overall health. Certain health concerns can hinder a patient’s ability to qualify as a dental implant candidate, including uncontrolled diabetes, jawbone shortcomings, or inadequate shape/size of the jaw.

IMPLANT SUPPORTED DENTURES

Eliminate the biggest concern about wearing dentures: the embarrassing moment when the dentures slip out of place while talking or eating. Implant supported dentures can provide a beautiful smile when traditional dentistry would otherwise fail to achieve satisfactory results.

In order to support a denture or bridge, implants are placed into the jawbone. The implant then integrates and bonds with the jawbone to provide rock-solid anchorage for dentures or bridges. These implants are placed strategically on the jawline to ensure a solid foundation to support both the function and aesthetics of your smile.

Jason Schrotenboer DDS MD
/ SKROH-ten-BOR /

We call him Dr. Jason, who was raised in the Holland area of Michigan — voted one of the happiest places in the U.S. (Maybe it’s the tulips, maybe the micro-breweries?)

Now, a transplant to Chicago, he’s in his happy place when he’s working with patients. His early experience as an oral surgery patient guided his future career path with his then surgeon-turned-mentor (a Northwestern trained surgeon, in fact!).

Today, that experience has groomed his practice and patient interactions. “Being a surgical patient has given me an advantageous perspective on being a surgeon. There’s so much more to providing care than textbook learning and technical training.” This early experience combined with his broad range of training, works to make your care more seamless and stress-free. Referring doctors and patients alike trust his reassuring demeanor and broad-scope training for treating conditions of the mouth, jaw, face and neck.
