Patients who are struggling with impacted wisdom teeth typically experience significant pain in their gums, added difficulty with opening their mouth, an irregular bad taste in the mouth, overly inflamed gum tissue, and excessive crowding and decay involving nearby teeth.
While many general dentists have undergone the appropriate amount of training to place dental implants, accomplished oral surgeons like Dr. Katabi has an exceptional amount of experience and knowledge in this field, and their dedicated focus on surgical services instead of a wide breadth of different treatment options allows them to provide even more precise, predictable, and successful results for simple and complex cases alike. We have worked hard to build an incredible referral network with general doctors all over the Chicago area for dental implant procedures, each practice handling the portion of the procedure they know best and benefitting the patient in turn. You deserve the highest caliber of care possible!
