Buffalo Grove Dentist Is Leading Dental Implant Provider

BUFFALO GROVE, IL--(Marketwired - January 29, 2016) - Dr. Scott Frank, a renowned dental implant provider, can give patients new permanent teeth that will not slip or slide around while they eat or speak.

Dr. Frank, who operates North Shore Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, uses a unique implant placement known as Refresh Smile. The system uses four dental implants on each arch to support a new set of permanent teeth. Over the last decade, Dr. Frank has completed more than 750 full-mouth reconstructions using Refresh Smile.

"Refresh Smile is an incredible procedure that lets us remove unhealthy teeth and then place extremely strong dental implants in just one visit," Dr. Frank said. "Few dental offices can give patients permanent teeth in just one day, but we have been doing just that with Refresh Smile for the several years."

Dental implants are made from titanium and fuse to the jawbone, preserving the jawbone from receding. Refresh Smile dental implants are restored with a non-removable bridge. The bridge leaves the upper palate open so patients can experience more tastes and hot and cold sensations.

With the immediate placement of dental implants following extraction, patients can avoid long-term bone recession or uncomfortable bone grafting procedures. The Refresh Smile treatment is ideal for patients who need a full mouth of extractions or those who are struggling with removable dentures. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants nearly meet the biting power of natural teeth and allow patients to eat whatever they want.

Dr. Frank said patients are amazed at the strength of the dental implants and aesthetic power of the permanent restorations. The patients are happy to throw away their bad dentures or to start living without dental pain or failing teeth.

"Refresh Smile is about changing lives. It gives people the ability to eat, talk and laugh again," Dr. Frank said. "People with beautiful smiles feel better, look better and enjoy a higher quality of life."

At North Shore Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, 1411 McHenry Rd., Ste. 127, Dr. Frank focuses on soft and hard tissue reconstructive surgery, which includes placing dental implants, smile makeovers, sinus bone grafting, regenerative bone grafting, traditional extractions and wisdom teeth extractions. His practice also offers IV sedation for patients with a fear of the dentist or for those who need multiple treatments in one visit.

Dr. Frank attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign College of Engineering and then earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery from Northwestern University. He completed his Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery residency at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C., a program that trained him in diagnosing and treating facial trauma, head and neck tumors, reconstruction of facial bony abnormalities, dental implant reconstruction with bone and tissue grafting, wisdom teeth and IV/general anesthesia.

In addition to having been in practice for more than 25 years, Dr. Frank trains dentists and surgeons across the country on advanced techniques for dental implant placement and restorations. He is the director of the Elite Dental Group, which holds a membership with the prestigious Seattle Study Club, one of the most elite dental education programs in the country. Both Seattle Study Club and Elite Dental Group are dedicated to providing advanced dental instruction and continuing education.
