Why Choose Dental Implants?
Built to Last
When treated by a specially trained implant dentist like Dr. Akhras, you can enjoy long-term benefits from your dental implants. Implant-supported restorations can last for more than 20 years with proper care, and implants themselves can last for over 40 years.
Because dental implants are anchored to your jawbone, they are just as stable as natural teeth. Your implant-supported restorations will never shift out of place, so you can eat and speak with complete comfort.
Did You Know? Implants Also Prevent Jawbone Recession
Your natural tooth roots stimulate your jawbone as you chew. After tooth loss, the bone tissue in your jaw begins to atrophy. Over time, this can lead to dental shifting and further tooth loss.
Titanium implant posts combat this degenerative process by simulating the function of tooth roots. They fuse with your jawbone in a process known as osseointegration, which helps prevent additional bone and tooth loss while supporting the overall health of your smile.

Candidacy Factors For Implant Dentistry
Have Good Oral Health
You'll need to be in a state of good dental health and overall health before you can receive implants. If you have gum disease, tooth decay, or another dental issue, our dentists can treat you prior to surgery.
Have Sufficient Jawbone Density
Your jaw has to be strong enough to provide a sturdy base for dental implants. If you have experienced jaw recession as a result of tooth loss, you can receive a bone graft or sinus lift at our Orland Park office. These procedures restore lost jaw tissue and can greatly improve your candidacy for implant surgery.
Smoking can seriously affect your dental health, the success of your implant placement surgery, and the postsurgical healing process. If you smoke or use other tobacco products, we recommend quitting several months before your surgery date.
Sedation Can Ensure Your Comfort
We offer nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation, and IV sedation at our Orland Park practice. Dr. Akhras has special training in IV sedation and is licensed to administer it in both Illinois and Wisconsin. Each of these options can induce a deep state of relaxation and ensure you feel comfortable during treatment.
The Dental Implant Timeline
For most patients, it takes between three to nine months to complete the treatment process.
Insurance and Financing For Dental Implants
Basic dental insurance does not cover implants and abutments. However, you'll likely receive coverage for your implant-supported crowns, bridges, or dentures. We accept most insurance plans and will work with your provider to maximize your benefits.
If you are uninsured or need help covering your out-of-pocket expenses, you have options. We offer in-house payment plans that let you break the cost of your treatment into manageable monthly installments. We also accept financing through CareCredit®, a lender that offers loans with little or no interest for healthcare services.
