Dental Implants

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

Our implant dentist, 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 free consultation.

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. 

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. 

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. 

Take a Look at How Dental Implants Work

Dental implant treatment uses three components. A titanium implant integrates with your jawbone tissue to replace missing tooth roots, an abutment piece sits atop the implant, and an implant-supported restoration connects to the abutment. It typically takes three visits to our Orland Park office to complete the process.

Candidacy Factors For Implant Dentistry

The best way to find out if you're a candidate for dental implants is by requesting a free consultation with Dr. Akhras. He can assess your dental health and treatment goals to determine whether implants are right for you. Ideal candidates for dental implants will:

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.

Quit Smoking

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

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 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.

Initial Consultation

First, you'll meet with Dr. Akhras at our office in Orland Park. He will assess your dental health, 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.

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.
