"My Experience here is great. Above that I’m a new patient. My original dentist is no longer available so I went looking for a new one close to work where I won’t have to leave work early and lose pay. The staff is amazing and beyond helpful and very forward on what is needed for me to take care of myself.UPDATE - I don’t publish feedback unless I mean it. So here it goes. They are still the best! 💪 ❤️ I was out for a year traveling for work and by keeping up with my health and using the necessary tools to stay healthy; as suggested, I was happy to come back for my check up and cleaning. The staff, as always, is Fabulous and the communication with patients is top notch! I recommend anyone who wants a new dentist! I literally now look forward to the dentist... and not many people say that!"- G.H. / Google / Nov 23, 2019

What to Expect
Before a dental implant is started, a full exam will be performed by our dentists to determine the health and strength of the gums and jawbone. If the individual is an acceptable candidate for dental implants, oral X-rays and impressions will assist our dentists to decide the best placement for the dental implants in the jaw. The individual may be given sedation and local anesthesia to relax the patient while our dentists put the titanium post into the jaw. In the next 3 - 6 months, the bone and implant will grow together while healing and as soon as the implant is stable, the false tooth or teeth will be joined to the implant through a connector. Our dentists may alter the implant and replacement teeth for a comfortable and lasting fit.
Typical patients have little or no pain after their dental implant procedure, but a few patients may experience temporary soreness and discomfort that may be treated with an over-the-counter pain medication, such as aspirin or Tylenol®. To extend the use of dental implants, patients should start a good home oral care regimen including brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash. Consistent dental appointments at DentalWorks - Chicago Loop in Chicago, IL for professional cleanings and exams are also vital to caring for implants. Dental implants may last for a long time with proper care, but dental implants may eventually need to be repaired or replaced.
If dental implants are considered medically necessary, the patient's dental insurance policy might cover some or most of the costs. Although, cosmetic dental implants are often not covered by insurance companies. At the patient's dental consultation, the office employees of DentalWorks - Chicago Loop can confirm their insurance coverage and discuss payment options and financing plans.
