Northalsted Chicago Dentist Now Providing Dental Implants

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - June 25, 2015) - Dr. Michael Griffin, a trusted Northalsted Chicago restorative dentist, is providing dental implants as a way for patients to replace missing teeth or stabilize their dentures.

Dental implants, which are FDA-approved and made from titanium, are a revolutionary tool in dentistry that nearly mimic the function of natural teeth. They can be restored with individual crowns or full arches of dentures.

“Dental implants are hands-down the best option to replace missing teeth,” said Dr. Griffin, owner of Northalsted Dental Spa. “They are not subject to decay, do not require use to prep the adjacent teeth to support a restoration and can last a lifetime with proper oral health care.”

Dr. Griffin recently completed training in advanced dental implant surgical procedures, allowing him to now place dental implants at his Northalsted dental office.

Dental implants have about 90 percent of the function of natural teeth and stop the jawbone from receding. Dr. Griffin can place a series of dental implants to secure entire arches of dentures. Patients with removable dentures are often limited in the food they can eat, but dental implants can give those patients a chewing force almost equal to natural teeth. Dental implants are permanent and give patients broader food choices, leading to a healthier lifestyle.

“This has a tremendous impact on the quality of patients’ lives and is the first addition to our major services in years,” Dr. Griffin said.

Dr. Griffin, a Chicago-area native, received his bachelor’s degree in human biology from the University of Kansas in 1994 and then his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine. He has completed hundreds of hours in continuing education in orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry and implant dentistry.

Dr. Griffin serves families and is an LGBT-friendly dentist.

Dr. Griffin opened Northalsted Dental Spa, a comprehensive family practice, in 2005. Since then, he has expanded his services to include treatments like Invisalign, an orthodontic solution that allows patients to straighten their teeth without metal brackets and wires. Invisalign uses a series of clear aligners to gradually move the teeth into the desired position. The aligners are removable and virtually undetectable.

Other individual services from Northalsted Dental Spa include restorative onlays and crowns, porcelain veneers, teeth-whitening treatments, non-surgical periodontal therapy, dental implants, bridges, extractions (including wisdom teeth extractions) and Botox injections to treat TMJ issues.

Dr. Griffin uses revolutionary CEREC technology to provide patients with same-day crowns. Typical dental offices require patients to visit their office two or three times before a permanent crown is placed -- forcing the patient to wear a temporary crown for several weeks. Dr. Griffin can restore teeth with permanent dental crowns in under two hours.
