Dental Implants

Missing even one tooth can affect your appearance, bite, and self-esteem.

Our implant dentist, Dr. Yamen Akhras, can repair the look, feel, and function of your smile with dental implants and lifelike restorations.

At Premier Dental & Implant Center in Orland Park, IL, we can handle every stage of implant treatment. Get started with a consultation.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

Implants Are the Next
Best Thing to Natural Teeth

  • 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. 

  • Lifelike Appearance

    Our implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures are made from advanced materials that mimic the look of natural teeth. We can even color-match your restorations to blend seamlessly with your smile.

  • Unparalleled Stability

    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.

Implants Can Treat
All Levels of Tooth Loss

  • Several Missing Teeth

    Up to three consecutive missing teeth can be replaced with a custom implant-supported bridge

  • All Missing Teeth

    If you are missing all the teeth along your upper or lower dental arch, an implant-supported denture can fully restore your appearance and bite.

  • Severely Damaged Teeth

    We can painlessly extract teeth that are damaged past the point of saving. Your dentist can then replace them with implants and restorations.

  • A Single Missing Tooth

    If you have a single missing tooth, a dental implant and crown can fill the gap in your smile. 

Did You Know? Implants Also Prevent
Jawbone Recession


Your natural tooth roots stimulate your jawbone as you chew. When a tooth is missing, 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. 

Take a Look at How Dental Implants Work

Dental implant treatment uses three components:

  1. A titanium implant integrates with your jawbone tissue to replace missing tooth roots
  2. An abutment piece sits atop the implant
  3. An implant-supported restoration connects to the abutment.

It typically takes three visits to our Orland Park office to complete the process.

Many dentists need to refer out to other practitioners to complete various steps of the implant process, but Dr. Akhras can complete every stage of treatment at our Orland Park office. He received specialized training at the prestigious Misch Institute, a center for continuing education in implant dentistry. This has equipped him to handle everything from preparatory bone grafts to final restoration placement. He's here to ensure you receive high-quality and attentive care throughout your treatment journey. 

We offer consultations to prospective patients who are interested in the benefits of implant dentistry. To get started on your new and improved smile, contact us online or give us a call at:

The Dental Implant Timeline

For most patients, it takes between three to nine months to complete the treatment process. 
For most patients, it takes between three to nine months to complete the treatment process. 

Initial Consultation

First, you'll meet with Dr. Akhras at our office in Orland Park. He will assess your dental health, degree of tooth loss, jaw density, and treatment goals to determine a plan that works best for you. 

Implant Placement

Dr. Akhras will use a surgical guide to place your implants at the precise angle and depth needed to provide the proper support. The process can typically be completed using only local anesthesia, but you can choose to receive sedation as well.

First Healing Period

It will take several months of healing for your dental implants to fuse with your jaw.

Abutment Placement

Once you've healed, Dr. Akhras will attach abutments to your implants in a second minor surgery.

Second Healing Period

It takes much less time to heal after abutment placement, usually just a couple of weeks.

Restoration Placement

Return to our office one last time to receive your custom implant-supported crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dr. Akhras will fix your restorations to your abutments and make adjustments as necessary to ensure they are comfortable and stable. You'll then be able to eat and speak just like you would with natural teeth.

Sedation Can Ensure Your Comfort

Patient receiving nitrous oxide, pills being poured into hand, and IV line

Many patients feel nervous about visiting the dentist, even just for a routine cleaning. If the thought of dental implant surgery is making you anxious, talk to Dr. Akhras about your options for sedation dentistry. Sedation can help you remain completely comfortable throughout the procedure. 

We offer 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.
