Dental Implants Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.
What Are Dental Implants?
A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw. The difference is that the implant is made of titanium – the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.
Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.
“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”
For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.
Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Ismaili is able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction – further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.
Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Dr. Ismaili performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary. The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

Patient Review By Richard K
My experience with both procedures was as expected and went very well. I had limited post-op pain and discomfort and required just some occasional anti-inflammatories medications like ibuprofen. The pain medications Dr. Ismaili prescribed me weren't needed. I would suggest him to anyone.

Patient Review By Phyllis E
I have never been treated with such respect and courteous behavior. Each time I went in for my appointment the staff was friendly and gracious. They always seemed to love their job and were happy to be there. I was well taken care of each time. The doctor even called me at home after my procedure and told me to feel free to all his cell phone if I needed him. Excellent care was given!

Patient Review By Dorothy C
I can't say enough about Dr. Ismaili and each one of his friendly and knowledgeable staff. Every aspect of my procedures were explained fully, and I was made to feel completely at ease and comfortable by everyone. Follow up after each surgery by Dr. Ismaili personally on the same day, and the following day by staff member was so appreciated. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Park Forest. Thank you all so much. Great experience!!
