Implants / Prosthodontics

The Dentist in Buffalo Grove IL

Dr. Gary Morris is our resident Prosthodontist, a specialist in the restoration and replacement of dental implants.

Dental implants are titanium fixtures placed into the jaw by a surgeon to replace missing teeth. These posts provide a strong foundation, acting as replacement roots for missing teeth. By having dental implants, patients are once again able to eat almost anything and smile confidently. Dental implants can replace individual teeth eliminating the need for bridges attached to natural teeth, dental implants can support dentures providing the stability needed for proper chewing function and comfort, and provide long lasting results. Implants are extremely aesthetic and often replace teeth is a manner which is undetectable to the eye.

At Shiffman-Morris Dental Associates, we partner with the best surgical specialists in our area to provide a synergistic approach to dental implant therapy. We use the latest technologies and techniques to ensure the best possible outcome. Implants can be restored with provisional restorations in the same day in many circumstances. If you feel like implant dentistry is for you, we ask that you complete a dental/radiographic exam and health history. If you have any questions or concerns about the procedure, feel free to ask during this consultation. We want to make the procedure a success for you and we will work closely with you to ensure a great outcome. Please visit our smile gallery to view examples of our restorations.

Many patients come to us with ailing dental implants. While dental implants are the most advanced and longest lasting method to replace missing teeth, they are subject to certain issues if not maintained properly. If you have a failing dental implant in Buffalo Grove, please contact us.
