Implant Dentistry in Oak Lawn
Dental implants are one of the most effective treatments for restoring lost teeth. They interact with both the smile and the jawbone beneath it to keep you as healthy as possible. Andrew J. Sampalis, DDS, and Associates, Ltd. offers dental implants.
Coordinating Your Care
Implants are titanium posts that are added to the jawbone. Through a process called osseointegration, the posts develop an inseparable bond to the bone and serve as artificial tooth roots.
Dr. Sampalis works with a trusted specialist who places your implants. Together, they develop the plan to add your new set of teeth to the smile. The specialist then performs the placement procedure.
After placement is complete, you must go through a healing phase to help the implants fuse to the jaw. Both Dr. Sampalis and your specialist monitor your healing during this period. They make sure the treatment is effective and that you remain comfortable throughout this time.
Adding the Restorations
Dental implant restorations are the visible teeth that the implant posts support. Once your healing period is complete, Dr. Sampalis adds these prosthetic teeth to your smile.
Dr. Sampalis has these made of materials that give you a healthy, beautiful smile. e.max® porcelain, zirconia, and layered porcelain-zirconia combinations are all hardy ceramics that mimic the color and brilliance of natural teeth. The implant dentures we offer are made of high-quality acrylic materials that better resemble the original smile.
