Lemont, IL, Dentist

Dr. Alan R. DeAngelo has been taking care of smiles of patients from Homer Glen, IL, for many years. If you’re from nearby Lemont, IL, then you’re just a short drive away from a dentist and team of dental hygienists and dental assistants who can provide an array of services for you and your entire family.

Care from your Lemont, IL, dentist Dr. DeAngelo begins with a dental checkup. For the sake of your oral as well as your general health, we’d like to see you every six months for a dental cleaning and exam. At these regularly scheduled visits, Dr. DeAngelo and his staff will do more than professionally brush your teeth and “have a look.” We will thoroughly examine each tooth for signs of decay and we’ll also assess the condition of your gums, too. Gum disease has been linked to several system diseases and illnesses, so if we can prevent gingivitis and periodontitis we may also be able to help you avoid conditions such as heart disease, dementia and pre-term deliveries among pregnant women.

Restorative Dentistry from your Lemont, IL, Dentist

Of course, if we find a problem during your checkup, then you can be certain Dr. DeAngelo has the restorative treatment you need. Rare is the person who goes through life without needing a cavity filled. Fortunately, today’s fillings are designed to repair your tooth without interfering with your white smile. Tooth-colored fillings are made of composite resin materials that can be blended to perfectly match the color of your tooth. And these fillings are durable, and they require less tooth preparation, so your finished tooth is stronger, too.

Sometimes, patients from Lemont, IL, come to Dr. DeAngelo with a toothache due to infection. In this case, Dr. DeAngelo will perform a root canal. During this procedure, we’ll remove your tooth’s pulp chamber—the infected portion of your tooth—and fill the space with a biocompatible material that will prevent the infection from returning. After you’ve healed and Dr. DeAngelo is certain the infection is gone, the tooth will be outfitted with a dental crown for protection and strength. A dental crown is another common restorative treatment that is used to repair teeth that have suffered from severe decay or traumatic injury.

For patients who are missing teeth, Lemont, IL, dentist Dr. DeAngelo offers a number of tooth replacement choices. With a titanium post inserted beneath the open socket of your missing tooth and a tooth restoration such as a porcelain crown attached above the gum line, a dental implant replaces both the root and crown of your tooth.
