When your dentures slip, do you wonder if dental implants would help? If it’s time to replace your partial or bridge, have you considered dental implants instead? If you’re missing just one tooth, and you don’t like the idea of a dental bridge, have you researched dental implants?
Located on the north shore of Chicago, Lake Forest Dental Arts is a leading dental implant center. Dr. James Fondriest, a respected implant dentist and educator, has integrated contemporary technology for state-of-the-art dental implant case planning. The doctor works with local specialists, whom he trusts and admires, to provide complete, comprehensive care for implant patients. Intensive planning will result in dental implants that sustain longevity, create a comfortable bite, and look absolutely sensational.
Jawbone density must be assessed with scans and evaluation by both Dr. Fondriest and the oral surgeon, implant dentist, or periodontist who will place the implant fixtures. The type, size, and location of the implants will be determined based on a collaborative effort of these professionals who make up your dental implant team. A surgical guide may be fabricated to ensure optimal precision. Occasionally, bone or gum grafts are required to prepare the mouth and create a solid foundation for implants.
With time, skill, and dedication to excellence, properly placed dental implants have a 98% success rate in the lower jaw and 96% in the upper jaw.
Benefits of implants include: no more loose, wobbly, ill-fitting dentures; no denture adhesives; no metal clasps (partial); no abutment crowns (bridges); improved function; improved health; improved diet possibilities; improved confidence; improved quality of life.
