Dental Implants in Chicago, IL

Pain-Free Dental Implants

You don’t have to settle for an incomplete smile.

Replace your teeth and reclaim your dental health with dental implants!

If you are missing teeth, you have a number of different tooth replacement options at your disposal. The most durable and comprehensive treatment is the dental implant.

The dental implant is a stand-alone replacement tooth that mimics the structure of a natural tooth. Every dental implant is rooted into the patient’s jawbone with a surgically implanted titanium “root.” This root is then capped with a natural-looking dental restoration, which is visible above the gum tissue.

With dental implants, you can:

  • Replace a single tooth
  • Replace multiple individual teeth
  • Support bridgework
  • Anchor a full set of dentures—this is commonly referred to as "All-on-4" treatment, because our dental team can anchor and support a full-arch prosthesis with just 4 dental implants

Because dental implants are anchored with titanium roots, they stay in place without dental adhesive and without having to be attached to adjacent teeth. You will be amazed at how natural dental implants look and feel once they are inserted.

Additionally, dental implants:

  • Support your natural bone tissue to prevent jawbone deterioration
  • Look and function like natural teeth
  • Are easy to care for
  • Last for years

Benefits of GALILEOS Guided Dental Implant Placement

Normally, dental implant placement is a lengthy process; the patient has the implant root placed, and then must wait months for the surgical site to heal. Only after this healing period can the dentist cap the implant root with a permanent, attractive restoration.

At Lakeview Smiles we can place dental implants quicker than ever.  We are proud to utilize GALILEOS CT Scan and CEREC technologies in order to improve and expedite the dental implant placement process. The GALILEOS 3D imaging system gives our dental team an unprecedentedly detailed view of your dental structure prior to surgery.

Consequently, we are able to design a virtual version of your final crown, and plan out the placement process using a digital model of your mouth. By the time you come in to have your real dental implant placed, our dental team has prepared a detailed guide that illustrates the exact, ideal placement for your replacement tooth.

Here is the quick and easy four step process to Galileos Guided Dental Implants:

  1. Scan
    In the first step, all the necessary images for planning are prepared: Intraoral impressions for the prothesis and 3-D x-ray images for surgical planning.

  2. Plan
    The surface scan and x-ray data are merged within Galileos implant and the appropriate surgical guide is selected.

  3. Place
    The implant is inserted securely using the surgical guide, which allows for minimally invasive work.

  4. Restore 
    In the final step, using the CEREC software, we plan the abutment and crown. The crown is then precisely fitted, monitored by intraoral sensors.

All of this pre-planning allows our dentist to place, and precisely fit, dental implants in as little as one hour (including the restoration). This innovative implant placement method is:

  • Faster than conventional treatment—repair your smile in one hour rather than months
  • Accurate—extensive pre-planning ensures that our dental team has a detailed and holistic view of your smile during treatment
  • Less invasive than traditional dental implant treatment
  • Practically painless
  • Safe—using this method of dental implant placement there is almost no chance that your adjacent teeth and oral structures will be damaged
