There is no doubt as to why dental implants are considered the “gold standard” in tooth replacement. Able to restore nearly full dental function after tooth loss, the health and aesthetic benefits of dental implants are virtually unrivaled. No longer do healthy teeth have to be “filed down” for tooth supported bridges nor do people have to wear partials or full dentures that cause social embarrassment or discomfort. Once securely placed into the jaw, dental implants can stabilize dentures or be a replacement option entirely with full arch implant solutions. We have been helping patients regain confident, functional smiles with implants for over 30 years and invite you to experience their life-changing benefits for yourself! Schedule your complimentary consultation with Drs. Thomas or Jessica Gibbs today to get started.
Dental implants are not only safer for the adjacent teeth (no partial clasps or unnecessary tooth reduction for tooth bridges), but a dental implant is much more attractive. With advanced and pre-planned implant surgery from our experienced team, your gums that “support the smile” can be maintained for proper aesthetics. In addition, the bone loss that occurs under tooth-supported bridges does not occur with dental implants due to bone stimulation in the jaw. The materials we use for dental implant crowns and bridges are also more cosmetic because no metal shows through the gum tissue as with other tooth replacement options. We also combine dental implants with other cosmetic dental procedures such as porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers for a full smile makeover. Altogether, this highly aesthetic option secured into your jaw bone creates the most ideal and permanent solution for anyone with missing teeth.
Dr. Thomas Gibbs has over 30 years of experience in implant surgery and uses the most advanced technology to aid in placing the dental implants safely and comfortably. He has earned an honorary Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (FICOI), has been trained at the California Implant Institute and the Misch International Implant Institute, and is the author of many articles on dental implants. For all our implant treatments, we utilize advanced cone beam radiography to visualize the jaws in 3D, which helps to accurately measure the size, shape, and density of the bone, and to fabricate precise surgical guides for implant placement. Guided implant surgery completed at our Glen Ellyn, IL office provides more comfortable implant procedures and more accurate final restorations. Surgical errors are eliminated, and the patient heals faster with a more cosmetically pleasing result and significant return to health, beauty, and function!
Dental implants are surgically placed into the jaw bone and aid in the healthy stimulation of the bone like surrounding natural tooth roots.
Dental implants are made from high-quality materials meant to mimic the natural shape, size, and translucency of teeth and blend in with your smile.
Dental implants allow for a nearly 100 percent return to normal biting and chewing power once enjoyed with natural teeth.
