Thanks to technological advancements, dentists can now maximize function and optimize oral health using restorations that last longer and deliver life-looking outcomes. One such innovation — dental implants — provides a predictable, reliable, and long-lasting solution for patients with tooth loss.
With extensive experience in implantology, Dr. Kevin Kellerman places high-quality dental implants for patients in Glen Carbon, Illinois, and the surrounding areas. Kellerman Dental specializes in both dental implant surgery and restoration to ensure all your implant needs are cared for under one roof.
A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root surgically gently placed under your gums to support or replace one or more permanent teeth. We use a medical grade titanium implant that fuses with the bone to form a solid foundation to anchor your new replacement tooth. The final result is a strong replacement tooth that functions and looks like your natural teeth.
Your implant journey starts with a comprehensive oral assessment. We inspect your bone strength to determine its suitability to support an implant. We also want to address gum disease, cavities, and other problems that may hinder your implant treatment.
If you have a clean bill of health, your implant treatment involves the steps below.
