Our dentists are trained, skilled, and experienced in oral surgery and implant placement which allows us to provide the “Implant in a Day” service at our full-service dental clinic as a convenience and time-effective option for our patients.
In addition to just replacing one tooth, dental implants can also be used to support other restorative and cosmetic dental work, including bridges and over-dentures.

All On 4 Dental Implants La Grange Park
The All On 4 approach is one of the best ways to restore a smile that has several missing teeth. The All on 4 implant procedure combines implants and overdentures, or a fixed bridge, to maximize the look, feel, and cost of replacing many missing teeth,
For the purpose of comparison, using traditional implants to replace an entire set of teeth typically requires about 12 implants, bone grafting for the jaw, and about 6-9 months for the mouth to heal. With All On 4, the implants are placed and temporary dentures are installed in one visit, and permanent overdentures or bridge are ready within a few months.
You are a good candidate for the All On 4 procedure if you are about to lose or have already lost all or many of your teeth. This is especially true if you’ve tried dentures and do not like them or have had problems wearing them. Contact 1st Family Dental to schedule a free consultation to determine if you can benefit from one of these procedures.
Implants in 3 Easy Steps
1. Implant Placement
The dentist places the implant surgically in the upper or lower jaw. A “healing cap” is placed over it to protect it. Sometimes, bone grafting may be required either before or during implant placement.
2. Healing & Osseointegration
Implants are so strong because the bone in the jaw actually grows around the implant, anchoring it into place and accepting it as a part of the bone. This is called osseointegration and is a critical step in the implant process.
3. Tooth Replacement
The dentist will have a custom crown, bridge or denture made to fit your mouth and implants.
