The single greatest advance in modern dentistry is the predictable use of the dental implant to replace missing or failed teeth. At Modern Dentistry, we perform more implant related procedures every year than most dentists will in their entire career. We have a dedicated implant and grafting surgical suite outfitted with specialized implant equipment including appropriate monitors for providing IV sedation.
We offer implant services from implant surgery to reconstruction. Here is an example of a single missing tooth replaced by a titanium implant abutment and crown. Keep in mind, unlike other providers, we offer a 3-year limited warranty on all of our final restorations at no additional cost. The peace of mind from knowing that your implant surgery and reconstruction were done properly is priceless.
We are able to provide advanced procedures, such as this sinus lift procedure, without having to refer our patients to an outside office, saving you time and money. Because we provide both surgical and restorative procedures, we are able to offer our implant solutions for a lower price than most dental offices. We review estimates from other dentists at a free, no obligation consultation. It will be worth your while to hear the implant and sedation options and pricing that we can offer you.
While there are implant options for removable dentures, most patients would prefer having the security and comfort of a fixed implant bridge. Traditionally, this option has been very expensive, not only when it is first made, but whenever a repair or remake is needed. Our solution is the most popular amongst implantologists who have tried most other options for their patients, and that is the LeClerq-Martinez implant bridge, which is a screw-retained implant framework, with individually cemented crowns. This technique was perfected by Dr. Phillipe LeClerq of Paris, France, and his head laboratory technician, Jean-Francois Martinez. This solution is the less costly to maintain should a crown chip or break, and will not require patients to wear an expensive temporary while a new crown is being made. In fact, almost any dentist can repair this bridge. Traditional implant bridges require the entire bridge to be removed and sent to the laboratory for repairs. This often requires an expensive temporary bridge be made during the repair, if the bridge can even be repaired. An added benefit is less tissue shrinkage. Since anywhere from 6-10 implants are used to support the LeClerq-Martinez bridge, bone and gum shrinkage are less likely to create a major esthetic problem later on.
Some dentists have suggested the approach where a bridge is screwed onto only 4 implants. What if one of those implants should fail? What if one of the teeth chips or breaks? What happens when the bone and gum shrink back dramatically over time? What do patients wear while their bridge is being repaired? The LeClerq-Martinez implant bridge answers all of these problems.
While this is usually the most expensive option available, we are happy to offer it to our patients at a fee that you probably won’t find anywhere in the US. We are one of the only practices in the world offering the LeClerq-Martinez implant bridge pictured here. While this procedure from start to finish can cost over $50,000 for each arch, we offer this service for less than half this amount by streamlining the procedures and having an in-house implant laboratory. There is no other office in Chicagoland offering this advanced restoration for the prices we are able to offer to our patients. The LeClerq-Martinez bridge is the restoration of choice for durability, esthetics, repairability, and maximum comfort. Why fly to Europe and pay tens of thousands of dollars more than you have to?
Don’t waste your time and money with other options that you may regret a few years down the road. Call us today for a free implant consultation to see if you are an appropriate candidate for this state of the art denture replacement!
