Dental Implants – Downers Grove, IL

Permanently Put Tooth Loss Behind You

From single tooth replacements to full smile makeovers, Dr. Xhelo has placed hundreds of dental implants over the course of his career. Dental implants in Downers Grove are permanent and stable tooth replacements and are a great option for patients who are missing a tooth or multiple teeth. Not only are implants fixed and do not need to be removed, but they also create a natural smile, are strong like natural teeth, and do not require treatment on the neighboring teeth like other options. Implants are the only solution that replaces both the tooth above and below the gum line for seamlessly natural-looking results!

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed below the gumline and into the jawbone. They are designed to mimic the natural roots of teeth, and due to their biocompatibility, they can fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. This allows dental implants to provide a strong, stable foundation for any type of restoration to be attached to, allowing us to replace one, several, or all teeth with this procedure.

The 4-Step Dental Implant Process

  • Consultation: This one-on-one time with Xhelo will help determine whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants. Our team will collect X-rays, ask you about your oral and medical health history, and walk you through each of your options and what your dental implant treatment plan would look like.
  • Surgery: When you consent to moving forward with our recommended treatment plan, we’ll schedule the next step of your procedure—your dental implant placement surgery. As a Fellow of The International Congress of Oral Implantologists and with his extensive training, Dr. Xhelo is able to complete this step in-office.
  • Healing: The following three to six months after your treatment, osseointegration (which is when the implants fuse with the jawbone) and healing will take place.
  • Restoration: After your healing is complete and your abutments are attached, we’ll secure your customized restoration within your mouth to complete your smile.

At Dentique Dental, our philosophy is to provide custom-tailored care, ensuring you get the best outcomes from treatments designed to meet your unique needs. As such, your dental implant procedure can be customized to replace one, several, or all of your teeth.

Missing One Tooth

For a single missing tooth, Dr. Xhelo will place one dental implant below the gumline to restore the missing root of the tooth. After it has fused with the bone, he can then secure a free-standing dental crown to it to fill the gap in your smile.

Missing Multiple Teeth

Instead of having to settle for a traditional dental bridge, we can secure a bridge to two dental implants placed at either side of the gap in your smile left by consecutive missing teeth. This will eliminate the need to alter your natural teeth, preserving and rebuilding your smile at the same time.

Missing All Teeth/All-On-4 Dental Implants

Dr. Xhelo offers All-On-4 dental implants in Downers Grove, which lets you enjoy faster results by securing a complete denture to four strategically placed dental implants. Depending on your situation, you may instead opt for traditional implant dentures, which utilizes four to eight dental implants to secure a restoration.

Understanding the Cost of Dental Implants

We want you to have the smile that you deserve, which is why we’re happy to accept and be in-network with many dental insurance plans, like Delta Dental, Ameritas, MetLife, Cigna, and more. We’ll file claims on your behalf whenever possible, but know that many plans don’t cover the complete cost of dental implants, so an out-of-pocket expense can likely be expected. For those without insurance, our in-house dental membership plan is just $50 and provides you with a 20% discount on all major services, as well as 50% off all preventive treatments.
