Like wallets, mobsters, and Roombas vacuuming pool decks, teeth occasionally go missing. Lay the groundwork for a dental stunt double with today's Groupon: for $1,499, you get a dental implant and abutment at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Chicago (a $3,200 value). This Groupon is valid at seven locations, two in Chicago and one each in Addison, Oak Lawn, Orland Park, Crystal Lake, and Vernon Hills.
The friendly oral and facial surgeons at Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Chicago wield 10 years of experience to help restore smiles with standalone dental implants and abutments. After a consultation and examination to determine eligibility for treatment, review medical history, and ascertain the patient's likelihood of trying steak-flavored toothpaste, dental experts place the implant into the jawbone with the aid of anesthesia and sedation. The small titanium screw is designed to fuse to the body's existing structure in a process that may require several visits over the course of a few months, followed by the attachment of an abutment. Like a well-programmed robot butler, an implant normally serves its owner for life.
Implants with abutments such as those placed by Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery of Chicago are typically used to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown (not included in today's deal) and to prevent teeth from conga-lining into a gap left by a missing tooth. Consult a list of frequently asked questions or watch a video for more information about dental implants as precursors to crowns.
