The #1 recommended tooth replacement solution

Dental Implants

If you’re missing a tooth (or several, or all of them!), we highly recommend dental implants. Dental implants secure the jawbone and lock restorations in place.

Oral health consequences

When missing teeth are left missing, and even with bridges and dentures that sit atop the gums, the consequences run deep. Surrounding teeth will shift and rotate, causing alignment and bite changes which can lead to TMJ dysfunction and headaches. The underlying jawbone deteriorates, causing a sunken facial appearance and making replacement teeth a difficult fit.

Quality of life consequences

Missing teeth not only cause an unsightly and embarrassing gap in your smile that hinders your self-confidence, they also make it difficult to enjoy your favorite foods and to speak clearly. Traditional bridges and dentures are pesky to clean and keep in place, but dental implants are a permanent fixture in your mouth, allowing you to live life as you did before missing teeth.

You deserve
the best.

Schedule a consultation with your New Lenox implant dentist, Dr. Etchison, Dr. Pycinska, or Dr. Eberhardt at Nelson Ridge Family Dental today to get started!

Dental implant options for every smile

Mini dental implants

If you’ve been told you are not a candidate for dental implants, or you’re on a tight budget and can’t afford traditional implants, mini implants might be the best option for you.

  • Require less jawbone density to place
  • Less invasive procedure with faster healing
  • More affordable than standard implants

Standard dental implants

Dental implants are the gold standard in modern tooth replacement technology, and we can provide precision placement and complete treatment from the comfort of your dental home.

  • Stimulate new bone and tissue growth
  • Permanently fixed in your mouth
  • Clean, maintain, and function like natural teeth

All-on-4® implant system

Implant dentures typically require 5-6 implants to support a full arch and six months for the implants to heal. All-on-4 uses only 4 implants and a set of healing teeth can be placed the same day.

  • Go from missing teeth to teeth in a day!
  • Fewer implants for faster recovery
  • More affordable than implant-supported dentures

Why Our Patients Smile

Tommy –
“First there are not enough stars. Then, I was in dire need of a dentist…haven’t had a full mouth of teeth in years. Being a disabled Vietnam Veteran, living on a fixed income, and getting all of my health care through the VA, EXCEPT for dental, because unless you are @ 100% with them…NO DENTAL…Well I found Dr. Etchison through my sister….HE IS A GOD SEND…from the second I walked in the door I was greeted with a smile and warmly welcomed. I needed a LOT of work, but money was tight. I was told not to worry. Well, that was a few months ago, and last week I walked out of his office with a new set of teeth, and a killer smile. The staff each and every one of them were beyond great. I am BLESSED to have been put in touch with him. I just cannot say enough about him and the whole staff. If you are looking for a dentist….STOP LOOKING. You found him!!!! I LOVE YOU Dr. Etchison and not too much of a man to admit it!! You and the girls are a BLESSING to me and I will never be able to tell you enough. THANK YOU and God Bless.”

Advanced 3D imaging technology allows for precision dental implant placement

We know oral surgery or other major dental procedures can be nerve-racking, but we want you to know we use the most current technology that makes the process more comfortable and easier than ever. Our CBCT scanner allows us to take panoramic 3D x-rays for an accurate picture of your entire oral health structure and helps us precisely guide your implant treatment for the most successful results.

If you are a particularly anxious or fearful patient, we’re happy to provide stress-free sedation options to help take the edge off and make you comfortable enough to complete the treatment. If you need multiple implants, we can use sedation to get more work done in a single visit while you’re completely relaxed. Check out our Sedation Dentistry page to learn more about relaxing sedation techniques.
