The National Center for Health Statistics concluded in a recent study that higher numbers of elderly Americans are having greater success in retaining the majority of their teeth when they are able to receive technologically advanced dental care. That is why Dr. Alin Alkass, DDS, has dedicated himself to staying at the forefront of dental technology advancement and utilization in the Chicago area.
Traditional dentistry is filled with a history of tooth extraction and dentures, but Dr. Alkass became a dentist to change that. After graduating from the New York University College of Dentistry in Manhattan, N.Y., Dr. Alkass has been steadily developing his skills and incorporating new opportunities for tooth retention into his practice. “Smiles on Elston” is Alkass' new state-of-the-art facility where he is helping people to have healthier and stronger teeth for life.
Dr. Alkass uses advanced modern digital technology for imaging and identifying less invasive alternatives when possible. “Smiles on Elston” is a full-service facility with services for periodontal maintenance, placement of fillings, crowns, bridges and porcelain veneers and tooth nerve therapy treatment for children and adults. Dr. Alkass and his staff will soon be offering tooth implants, as well as traditional and metal-free “braces” for Forest Glen, Jefferson Park and communities beyond.
Advancements in modern dentistry are continuously providing new alternatives for less invasive procedures to retain teeth longer. Dr. Alin Alkass, and his staff at “Smiles on Elston,” are committed to providing every patient with the most advanced dental procedures applicable.
