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, we can handle every stage of implant treatment.
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.
Our implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures are made from advanced materials that mimic the look of a natural tooth. We can even color-match your restorations to blend seamlessly with your smile.
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 Degrees 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
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:
- A titanium implant integrates with your jawbone tissue to replace missing tooth roots
- An abutment piece sits atop the implant
- An implant-supported restoration connects to the abutment.
It typically takes three visits to our Orland Park dental 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 or give us a call at:
Improve Your Eligibility for Implants With Safe Supplementary Procedures
Many patients who need implants are living with periodontal disease or gum disease. Symptoms range from loose teeth to receding gums, and they can even include tooth loss. We'll make sure your gums are healthy before your dental implant treatment so that your results truly last.
In order to be a dental implant candidate, you need to have healthy gums and sufficient bone material. Otherwise, your dental implants will not be able to fuse into place. Luckily, our team offers bone grafting to strengthen your bone tissue and create a strong foundation for your new implants.
If you've lost a tooth or experienced periodontal disease in your upper jaw, your bone may have deteriorated. In other cases, your natural anatomy might not support an implant. With a sinus lift, we can graft bone into the area. This allows our Orland Park patients to have enough healthy, strong bone to support their new dental implants.
Reach Out For a Virtual Consultation
You can start the journey toward a healthier smile on your own timeline at our Orland Park office. Patients can explore their implant options through virtual consultations on FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom. We also have a 24/7 online appointment system, so you can conveniently take charge of your care. Contact us using a simple online form for more info or call our office.

Went there and was such an easy process.
Dr. Akhras is the absolute best and truly cares about his patients.
He is extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions I had with no issues.
His staff was also extremely friendly and helpful!
My experience at Premier Dental was nothing short of exceptional. Dr. Akhras and his staff are friendly, professional, and very knowledgeable. When I came to the office, I was greeted by a nice young lady who helped me check in smoothly and answered all my questions about the procedure and payment plans. They are also a very organized dental team which was evident when I only waited about 10 minutes to be seen and I was able to schedule my next check-up seamlessly.View on Google
The Dental Implant Timeline
For most patients, it takes between three to nine months to complete the treatment process.
Sedation Can Ensure Your Comfort
We offer oral conscious sedation and IV sedation at our Orland Park office. 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.
