Going to St. Charles Family Dentistry not only puts you in a special club because you are part of a dentistry group known for healthy teeth, but also because you are automatically a part of our “Smile Rewards” program. This patient rewards program is a unique, fun and free offering for our clients to help them earn prizes, including gift card rewards.

Patient Rewards ImageMonthly Contests 

Participating in monthly contests mean you can earn points toward the prizes you would like to win. For example, the “Here, There, and Everywhere!” contest involves posting a picture of yourself holding or wearing something with your favorite St. Charles dentist’s name on it. Our patients earn points just for entering, and the winner who receives the most votes is awarded 25 points.
The Patient Rewards site also features kid-friendly games and even dental education for parents. The site is designed so there is truly something for everyone who visits regularly. As an added bonus, points earned from entering contests and playing games qualifies rewards card members a chance to receive gift cards. These cards are to major retailers, such as Starbucks, McDonald’s, Best Buy, Target and Apple. Not bad for playing games and entering contests!

Our St. Charles, IL dentist’s office also invites you to read different aspects of the website. We have included biographies and photos of our dentists and dental staff so you can learn more about our education and credentials that go into providing the best dental care for you and your family.

Dental Implants ImageMany of you know the procedure and benefits of getting dental implants, but what about after the procedure? Dr. Lipskis has some post-operative instructions for St. Charles patients who have recently had dental implants, or are getting implants in the future. We want to ensure that your recovery is as comfortable and easy as possible.

Usual Instructions After Dental Surgery

While there are many topics to discuss, we want you to be familiar with some general rules of thumb after your dental surgery.
If a temporary tooth was placed, do not bite on the tooth the day of completion. Please be sure to call us if anything seems out of place, such as the cover of a screw falling out or a healing abutment.

Post-Operative Expectations

Since dental implants are surgically placed in your mouth, there will be some recovery involved. Listed here are some things you need to know after the restorative procedure:
  • Slight discomfort. We can recommend a non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory medication to get rid of any discomfort that you may feel right after the restorative procedure.
  • Diet. Staying hydrated is very important after surgery. Try to avoid hot liquids. Soft foods can be eaten if you feel comfortable with it.
  • Dental appointments. Please make sure to attend all follow-up appointments so we can check the progress of healing gum tissue and address any possible concerns you may have.
For more information on dental implants and what you can expect during and after the procedure, contact our office today at (630) 377-3131. Also for a list of what our dentist offers, check out our services page.
