Our patients with damaged or missing teeth want a permanent and natural-looking way to restore their smile and oral function, and dental implant-based tooth replacement solutions achieve all of that and more. When you receive dental implants, whether it’s to replace a single tooth, many teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, you are gaining permanent, comfortable, and natural-looking tooth replacements. You are also improving your overall oral health when you receive dental implants because all dental implant-based solutions help prevent bone atrophy that can result from prolonged tooth loss. For our patients who require a replacement for multiple teeth, a full-arch restoration may be recommended. This revolutionary implant-based solution is relatively quick and cost-effective — an entire customized arch of teeth can be securely anchored using as few as four dental implants. The result is a full-arch of permanent replacement teeth that look and function much like natural teeth.
We encourage you to contact the friendly team at Oral & Facial Surgeons of Illinois to hear more about the benefits and details of the tooth replacement treatments we offer. Our oral surgeons will be happy to consult with you to develop a customized treatment plan and coordinate your care with your general dentist. We look forward to seeing your new smile!
Wisdom teeth are also called third molars, and they usually emerge between the ages of 17 and 25. Most of the time, our mouths do not have enough space to accommodate these extra molars, and they end up causing oral health problems, often before noticeable symptoms arise. To avoid the potential oral health problems that wisdom teeth can cause, such as infection, crowding, pain, cysts, and more, it’s important that your family dentist monitors the development of your or your child’s wisdom teeth with regular checkups.
If your dentist has told you that you or your child will need your wisdom teeth extracted, or if you have noticed signs that the wisdom teeth are causing problems, please contact Oral & Facial Surgeons of Illinois. Our doctors will be happy to consult with you to develop a detailed plan for your treatment.
Orthognathic surgery, also called corrective jaw surgery, most commonly treats severe jaw problems such as underbites, overbites, and crossbites. Some minor cases are treatable with orthodontics alone, but more severe cases often require jaw surgery. Problems with jaw function that require jaw surgery typically occur because the upper and lower jaws have developed at different rates, causing issues with a patient’s ability to eat, speak, and even breathe. Corrective jaw surgery has the potential to improve and even eliminate these problems, dramatically improving a patient’s quality of life by correcting the position of the jaws. Most patients who have undergone jaw surgery also report a boost in confidence because this type of treatment can balance out facial features.
Corrective jaw surgery is a collaborative effort between our extensively trained oral surgeons and your orthodontist. This teamwork allows us to provide you with optimal — and even life-changing — results. If you have noticed problems with your jaw or suffer from chronic jaw pain, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with one of our oral surgeons to find out the severity of your condition and receive an appropriate treatment plan.
