The Dental Implant Procedure - Chicago, IL
The Permanent Solution for Missing Teeth
Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants
Are you missing one or more teeth? If so, you understand how hard it can be to smile in photos or eat the foods you used to love. Missing teeth can change the long-term appearance and stability of your jawbone as well. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or all 32, dental implants are a lifelong solution to these problems. These permanent restorations can bring a smile back to your face! Our team at Windy City Dental Implants is proud to offer partial and full mouth dental implants in Chicago, IL, and we’ll be glad to help you smile again.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants have three components. Dr. Ogbara surgically inserts the titanium post into your jawbone, the restoration is custom-milled to match your other teeth, and the abutment joins these parts. This stability makes them one of the most versatile tooth replacements, and they can replace any number of missing teeth. To achieve the best results, you need to consult with an implant dentist who uses advanced surgical technology. Our team provides dental implants to people throughout the Chicago area.
Know Your Implant Options
Dr. Ogbara uses dental implants to replace any number of missing teeth. He can also use implants to stabilize a modified denture, which snaps onto the implants. Finally, with full mouth dental implants, he inserts four or more posts into your jaw and attaches a full arch restoration to them. In all cases, this improves your comfort, confidence and your quality of life.

Our Dental Implant Process
At Windy City Dental Implants, we customize your treatment to your specific needs and goals. The first step is to consult with Dr. Ogbara in our Chicago office, where he’ll go over your medical and dental history. He’ll also take cone beam CT scans of your jaw to determine proper implant placement.
The next stage is your implant surgery, which may also include extracting your remaining teeth or performing bone grafts. You’ll be sedated and comfortable throughout the procedure. Most of the time, you can leave your surgery with a temporary set of restorations and begin smiling right away!
Once your mouth heals over the next three to six months, you’ll come back to our office to receive your permanent restoration.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants have a lot of advantages over more temporary restorations. Unlike bridges, they don’t need healthy teeth to support themselves. All they require is proper jawbone density. In turn, they will provide stimulation to your jawbone, keeping it healthy. Dental implants are the only restoration that can bring back up to 99% of your original biting and chewing power. For this reason, we recommend implants to nearly all of our patients.

The improvement they can make to your smile, and your life, cannot be overstated.
