New patients seeking dental implants in Oak Park, IL, are invited to Dental Care of Oak Park, with or without a referral to replace their missing teeth. Respected dentist, Drs. John Perna and prosthodontist, Pratiksha Agrawal, have over 25 years of combined experience in placing and restoring dental implants to bring function to the bite and improve the overall aesthetic look of the smile.

Dental implants are considered the ideal solution to replace missing teeth because they mimic a natural tooth in numerous ways. A strategically placed implant post functions similarly to a tooth root by stimulating the jaw bone to prevent bone loss and inspiring healthy bone growth. The attached dental crown grants patients the appearance and biting function of a natural tooth. With extensive training in implant dentistry and restorations, Drs. Perna and Agrawal offer solutions for single and multiple missing teeth as well as full-arch replacements with dental implants in Oak Park, IL.

When tooth loss is left untreated, serious complications can affect the jaw and even surrounding teeth. The loss of jaw bone volume can occur within the first year of a missing tooth, which can cause a change in facial appearance, shifting teeth, and eventually further tooth loss. Without adequate bone volume, dental implants will not have a proper foundation for long-term support and thus are not able to be placed. However, when a missing tooth is immediately replaced with a dental implant, this bone loss can be prevented.

For patients who are currently in removable dentures or who are considering replacing their teeth with them, Dental Care of Oak Park offers the option of implant supported dentures. With this solution, they are able to attach a denture prosthesis to dental implants inserted in the jaw. This provides more stability for the denture in the mouth, prevents bone deterioration, and is typically more comfortable for the patient.

Dr. Agrawal, a specialist in replacing missing teeth and providing esthetically appealing restorations and Dr. Perna, a Misch Institute graduate dedicated to the latest implant techniques and technology, are excited to restore new patients’ smiles with dental implants in Oak Park, IL. Patients with and without a referral can schedule a consultation calling Dental Care of Oak Park at 708-628-5625 or visiting the website at
