Dental Implants in Homer Glen

Missing teeth can inhibit the ability to chew foods and speak clearly. Cosmetically, they impair a smile, which causes embarrassment and low self-esteem. Solutions have existed for decades: bridgework, partials, and full dentures. However, these options don’t always look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Dr. De Angelo is highly trained in dental implant restoration, which means he can offer you a tooth replacement solution that Mother Nature would commend. Call our Homer Glen dentist office today to schedule your appointment.

Dental Implants-The Team Approach

We’ve all heard the phrase  “Jack of all trades, master of none” and nowhere in dentistry can it apply more than in the art and science of dental implantology.   Dr. Alan R. De Angelo partners with an oral-maxillofacial surgeon to restore his implant patients with state of the art treatment that meets or exceeds the highest standard of care.  Having restored dental implants for over 28 years,      Dr. De Angelo has worked with numerous dental specialists who place dental implants and has chosen who he feels is the best in their field to partner with.

In the medical profession, we all know that your knee surgeon would not do open heart procedures, and vice versa, it should be the same in dentistry.  You want the most talented doctors in their field of expertise working to provide you the best results.  Dental implants are so much more than just screwing something into your bone.  It takes proper planning, bone grafting, if proper bone support is not present, and precise placement.  Afterall, you can’t build a stable house on a weak foundation.  That’s why proper bone support is so important!

With my 28 years of dental implant restoration experience, and a surgeon who has placed almost 18,000 implants and teaches implant placement and bone grafting internationally, to other surgeons, you get the best of both worlds for your dental implant experience.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small, titanium fixtures that are placed directly in the socket of a missing tooth. An implant will fuse to the jaw bone and act as a tooth root, providing stability for single crowns, bridges, or overdentures. Dr. De Angelo has restored dental implants in Homer Glen since 1986 and works with area oral surgeons for precise implant placement.

Why Should I Choose Dental Implants?

Would you believe that one of the biggest advantages of using this technique to restore your smile isn’t cosmetic? When a tooth is lost, the surrounding bone and gum tissue will begin to deteriorate with nothing to support. By placing and restoring a permanent dental implant (or implants) to mend your row of teeth, the jaw bone and gums are revitalized with purpose once again. Over time, bone density can improve and the gums are renewed. Meanwhile, your smile will look realistically beautiful and will function like an unharmed bite!
