Dental Implants

If you're missing teeth or dealing with the discomfort of ill-fitting dentures, then you've come to the right place. Dr. Raymond G. Hatland, our expert in holistic dentistry, is here to provide you with top-notch care and a beautifully balanced bite that will help preserve the longevity of your dental implants.

Dental implants are a game-changer when it comes to restoring your smile and oral health. No longer do you have to settle for uncomfortable prosthetics or worry about bone loss in your jaw. With Dr. Hatland's expertise, you can enjoy the benefits of dental implants while also ensuring that your overall health is taken into consideration! 

What Are Dental Implants? 

Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for replacing missing teeth. But what exactly are dental implants? They are titanium posts that act as artificial tooth roots, providing a strong foundation for replacement teeth.

Dr. Raymond G. Hatland offers both mini, and the larger and stronger mono implants at his Lincolnwood and Indianapolis offices. Whether you opt for mini or mono dental implants, Dr. Hatland can help you restore your smile and regain confidence in your ability to chew and speak comfortably.

Types of Dental Implants We Offer

Dr. Hatland understands that every patient's needs and preferences are unique, which is why he offers both mini and larger-sized mono implants.

However, it's important to note that traditional implants do come with certain considerations. They may require a surgical procedure for placement. Additionally, there is typically a minimum of a three to six-month waiting period before they can withstand chewing force. These factors may increase the overall cost (many times double that of mini or mono implants) and months of extra time required for treatment.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini implants offer an alternative option that can be much more affordable and convenient. These smaller-sized implants can often be placed using innovative non-surgical techniques, allowing Dr. Hatland to provide same-day restorations in certain situations.

Mono Dental Implants

Mono dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone as artificial tooth roots. These implants serve as a stable foundation for attaching single crowns or even multiple teeth replacements such as bridges or dentures.

By offering both options, Dr. Hatland ensures that his patients have access to a range of choices when it comes to dental implant solutions. This personalized approach allows him to tailor treatment plans based on individual needs, circumstances, and the creativity that the smaller-size implants allow.

Whether you choose mini implants or mono implants at Dr. Hatland's practice, you can trust that you will receive high-quality care and achieve optimal results in restoring your smile and oral health.

The Process of Getting Dental Implants 

Getting dental implants is a carefully planned and executed procedure that takes into account the overall health and well-being of the patient. Dr. Raymond Hatland understands that every individual is unique, and he tailors the treatment plan accordingly.

A thorough examination is conducted to assess the condition of the jawbone and surrounding tissues. Once deemed suitable for dental implant placement, Dr. Hatland uses state-of-the-art technology to precisely position the implants in the jawbone. The use of 3D imaging allows for accurate planning and optimal placement.

During this part of the process, patients can rest assured that their comfort is prioritized. Local anesthesia is used to numb any discomfort during surgery, ensuring a pain-free experience.

After implant placement, it takes only 2 to 4 weeks for osseointegration – the fusion between bone and implant – to occur for mini or mono implants. This typically takes 3 to 6 months for implants to integrate.

Dr. Hatland's expertise extends beyond just placing dental implants; he focuses on achieving harmony throughout your entire bite system. By restoring proper balance between upper and lower teeth, he ensures not only functional restoration but also improved overall health.

In short, undergoing dental implant treatment with Dr. Raymond Hatland means receiving comprehensive care from start to finish in a holistic approach that aims to preserve your oral health while considering its impact on your general well-being.

Achieving Harmony with Dental Implants 

Placing dental implants goes beyond simply replacing missing teeth. It involves restoring proper balance to the bite, which plays a crucial role in overall health. Many people underestimate the importance of occlusion or the way the upper and lower teeth meet, but improper alignment can lead to a cascade of painful symptoms.

When the bite is not properly aligned, it can result in facial pain, back pain, headaches, and even issues with digestion. This chain reaction occurs because misalignment puts stress on different parts of the body that are interconnected through muscles, nerves, and the bioenergy system.

Dr. Raymond Hatland understands this connection and aims to restore balance when placing dental implants. By carefully considering how each implant and crown will affect occlusion, he ensures that patients not only regain their beautiful smiles but also alleviate any potential discomfort caused by an imbalanced bite.

By focusing on achieving harmony with dental implants, Dr. Hatland helps his patients experience long-term relief from various symptoms related to misaligned bites. Whether it's facial pain or backaches, addressing these issues holistically leads to better overall health and well-being. So, if you're considering dental implants for tooth replacement, you can trust Dr. Hatland's expertise in creating balanced bites that promote optimal oral health!

Benefits of Getting Dental Implants 

Dental implants provide an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth while enhancing overall oral health and well-being. Here are some of those benefits:

  • Restores balance in the bite: Another benefit is the restoration of proper balance in the bite. When teeth are missing, it can lead to misalignment and an imbalanced bite force distribution. This imbalance can result in various issues, such as jaw pain, headaches, and even digestive problems. By placing dental implants strategically and ensuring a perfectly balanced bite, Dr. Hatland aims to alleviate these symptoms and improve overall oral function. This holistic approach not only addresses immediate concerns but also contributes to long-term oral health maintenance. 
  • Adds stability and durability: Moreover, dental implants offer stability and durability compared to other tooth replacement options like full dentures or removable partial dentures. With proper care and regular check-ups with your dentist, dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime.
  • Bone loss is commonly associated with missing teeth over time. They stimulate natural bone growth through osseointegration – where the implant fuses with surrounding bone tissue – promoting optimal oral health outcomes from both functional and aesthetic standpoints.
  • Considering all these benefits from a holistic perspective allows individuals not only to regain confidence in their smile but also promotes overall wellness by addressing underlying issues related to missing teeth.
