Dr. Mark Ligocki invites you, your friends and family to his Oakbrook or Wheaton offices to learn all about the advantages of dental implants for the treatment of missing teeth. Dr. Ligocki will be hosting a separate open house at each location in order to accommodate a larger number of patients. Ligocki Dental Group will be holding a dental implant open house at their Wheaton office on Wednesday, November 12th from 5:30-7:30pm. The dental implant open house at their Oakbrook Terrace office will take place on Monday, November 17th from 5:30-7:30pm. At the open houses, patients will have the opportunity to tour the office, meet Dr. Ligocki and his staff, and learn about the procedure, it’s costs, and affordable financing options. Refreshments will be served.

Dental implants are the most durable, functional, and natural tooth replacement option available today. The implant is comprised of a titanium post that serves as the root of your replacement tooth, a porcelain crown, and an abutment that attaches the crown to the implant. With proper oral care, a dental implant can replace a natural tooth for a lifetime.

There are numerous reasons why dental implants are superior to all other forms of tooth replacement.

  • Convenience. Once the implant is placed, it serves all the functions of a natural tooth. No eating restrictions or speaking impediments.
  • Oral health. With other tooth replacement options, the bone where the tooth root use to be may deteriorate over time, causing neighboring teeth to shift and loosen. Implants are the only option that helps prevent bone loss in the jawline.
  • Reliability. Implant placement has a success rate of over 95%.
  • Confidence. Implants are practically indistinguishable from natural teeth. You will never have to worry about your dentures slipping or whistling through a missing tooth. You can eat all the foods that you desire, and most of all, you will smile more confidently at work and at play with a full, healthy set of teeth.

To stay updated about the dental implant open house, patients can visit Ligocki Dental Group’s Facebook and Twitter. Patients can also learn about Ligocki Dental Group by visiting their website at www.ligockidentalgroup.com. Dr. Mark Ligocki and his team at Ligocki Dental Group in Oak Brook and Wheaton have been serving the western suburbs for over twenty years. The practice emphasizes general family dental care as well as implants, nonsurgical gum treatments, and cosmetic procedures.

What’s Sweeter Than Sugar? Cold Hard Cash!
Local Dentist will pay to get excess candy “off the streets” OAK BROOK, IL
WHEATON, IL

One area dentist is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Ligocki Dental Group and receive $1 per pound (5 lb. limit) during his Halloween Candy Buy Back. Dr. Mark Ligocki has been leading this anti-decay movement in the western suburbs since 2011 by giving away the dollars and toothbrushes in exchange for the cavity causing candy. Dr. Ligocki then ships the candy to our courageous troops overseas.

Dr Ligocki says, “After Halloween we as parents realistically expect the kids to enjoy some of the candy they collect and then we are here to help them get rid of the excess.” That’s good news for kids, especially when early childhood decay is on the rise and obesity and diabetes rates among the young have skyrocketed. Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks and their bodies will benefit as well.

Candy will be collected at Ligocki Dental Group in Oakbrook Terrace the Monday after Halloween, November 3 from 5:30-7:30 p.m and at their Wheaton office on Wednesday, November 5th from 5:30-7:30pm. The candy must be unopened. No bites please. To commemorate this year’s Halloween Candy Buy Back, Dr. Ligocki will be collecting letters written by the children to the troops and be raffling off movie tickets in the “Guess how many candy corns there are contest”.

Dr. Mark Ligocki and his team at Ligocki Dental Group in Oak Brook and Wheaton have been serving the western suburbs for over twenty years. The practice emphasizes general family dental care as well as implants, nonsurgical gum treatments, and cosmetic procedures. Dr. Ligocki is available to provide more information at (630) 620-8099 or (630) 665-7400, or visit Ligocki Dental Group on-line at www.LigockiDentalGroup.com. Another local business and one community group have volunteered to help via donations. If your business or organization would like to participate, please contact Ligocki Dental Group in Oak Brook.

OAKBROOK DENTIST PURCHASES ADDITIONAL WHEATON DENTAL PRACTICE

Dr. Mark Ligocki, founder of Ligocki Dental Group in Oakbrook has acquired the dental practice Dr. Susan Sup, 200 East Willow Avenue, Suite #203, Wheaton, Illinois.

Dr. Sup would like to take this opportunity to graciously thank all her patients for their trust and confidence in permitting her to take care of their dental needs throughout the years. As you may know, there comes a time in life when family calls your name, and after much belabored thought, she has chosen to step back from the business of dentistry. It was her desire for her patients to be able to conveniently continue to receive dental treatment on a consistent basis.

She wanted to be certain that all her patients continue to receive the best possible care. After carefully evaluating a number of dentists who were interested in assuming her practice, she selected Dr. Mark A. Ligocki, whom she believes possesses the highest qualifications and is extremely well skilled in all phases of dentistry. Dr. Sup will continue to practice with Dr. Ligocki on a limited basis as he will assume a more hands on approach in the daily operations of the practice. Equally important, the staff has happily agreed to stay on to reinforce a comfortable transition especially for the patients.

Dr. Ligocki, with over twenty-five years experience, currently practices in Oakbrook, in a practice similar to Dr. Sup’s, which will ensure that the transition will be simple and smooth. He is from Naperville where he resides with his wife, JoanEllyn, and their two daughters, Jocellyn and Lauryn, both of which have interests in a future of dentistry. Dr. Ligocki received Bachelor of Science degrees from both Roosevelt University and the University of Illinois. He is a graduate of the University of Illinois College of Dentistry, which still ranks as one of the finest programs in the country. He is a member of several dental associations, authored numerous articles on topics in dentistry, lectured on dental implants, takes many hours of continuing education each year, and is the visiting dentist at a retirement community in Downers Grove, all while fitting in his hobbies of: family first, sports (mainly basketball and now lacrosse), and Koi pond water gardening.

Dr. Ligocki is excited with the opportunity to expand his practice of dentistry into downtown Wheaton, as well as continue to practice in Oakbrook. For more information and to schedule a complimentary smile and whitening evaluation, please call his Wheaton office at (630) 665-7400 or his Oakbrook office a (630) 620-8099.

Oak Brook Dentist Invites Patients to Dental Implant Open House

Dr. Mark Ligocki, dentist in Oak Brook, announces that he will be hosting an informational dental implant open house in June.

For Oak Brook, Villa Park and surrounding area community members considering teeth replacement options, Dr. Mark A. Ligocki will be holding a dental implant open house at his Oak Brook dental practice on Tuesday, June 11th, 2013, from 6:00 PM-8:00 PM. During the open house, patients will have the opportunity to learn more about dental implants and have their questions answered about the procedure.

Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. A dental implant replaces the natural root of a tooth so that an artificial tooth may be placed. Dental implants are placed in the jaw and are typically covered with a crown. Implants are strong, durable, and imitate the function and feel of natural teeth. After surgery, you will be able to chew and speak as you did with natural teeth. Among the benefits of dental implants, patients consider that with dental implants, the neighboring teeth are not affected, joint pain and bite irregularities can be fixed, facial tissues are restored or enhanced, and bridges and dentures can be supported.

Dr. Ligocki offers single and multiple dental implant options along with full mouth restoration

While dentures may slip around the mouth and cause gum sores, dental implants are permanent and stable. Implants also allow patients to chew and speak as they would with their natural teeth.

The Ligocki Dental Group dental implant open house will take place on Tuesday, June 11th, 2013, from 6:00 PM-8:00 PM.  Complimentary consultations, X-rays, full examinations, and refreshments will be available at the event. Patients who are interested can call the office at (630) 620-8099 to register.

To stay updated about the dental implant open house, patients can visit Ligocki Dental Group’s Facebook and Twitter at www.facebook.com/pages/Ligocki-Dental-Group/122341034501337 and www.twitter.com/drmarkligocki.

Oakbrook Terrace Dentist Offering Free Oral Cancer Screenings

Early Detection Saves Lives

In honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month, Ligocki Dental Group will be offering free oral cancer screenings on April 15 and April 25 from 3pm – 7pm.

Oral cancer is not a rare disease. Approximately 42,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer every year in the US. It kills one person every hour of every day, and over 100 new individuals will be diagnosed with it each day. The good news is that it can often be found early in its development, through a simple, painless, and quick screening.

Who should get screened?

Every adult. Oral cancer can often be caught early, even as a pre-cancer. With early detection, survival rates are high and the side effects are from treatment are at their lowest. Like other screenings you engage in such as cervical, skin, prostate, colon and breast examinations, oral cancer screenings are an effective means of finding cancer at its early, highly curable stages. Make them part of your annual health check-ups.

What are the risk factors?

There are two distinct pathways by which most people come to oral cancer. One is through the use of tobacco and alcohol, a long term historic problem and cause, and the other is through exposure to the HPV16 virus (human papilloma virus version 16), which is now the leading cause of oral cancers in the US, and the same one, which is responsible for the vast majority of cervical cancers in women. The quickest growing segment of the oral cancer population are young, healthy, non-smokers due to the connection to this virus.

Early Indicators:

  • Red and/or white discolorations of the soft tissues of the mouth.
  • Any sore which does not heal within 14 days.
  • Hoarseness which lasts for a prolonged period of time.

Advanced Indicators:

  • A sensation that something is stuck in you throat.
  • Numbness in the oral region.
  • Difficulty in moving the jaw or tongue.
  • Difficulty in swallowing.
  • Ear pain which occurs on one side only.
  • A sore under a denture, which even after adjustment of the denture, still does not heal.
  • A lump or thickening which develops in the mouth or on the neck.

An oral cancer screening should be conducted every year, so take advantage of this free offer and get screened today. Call 630-620-8099 to make an appointment for your complimentary screening.
