Dental Implants Rochester Hills MI
At Roc Dental, we compassionately approach tooth loss because we know it can be a traumatic experience for our patients. When you lose a tooth, you likely have a number of concerns regarding your health and appearance. Dr. George Ibrahim will discuss all of your treatment options so that you can make the decision regarding your oral health that works best for you.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Many dentists agree that replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant is the best way to protect your smile. They also provide a level of convenience not found with any other tooth replacement options.
Bone preservation – We use trusted oral surgeons to place your dental implants. Because they are made of biocompatible metals, such as titanium, they will naturally fuse with your bone over the course of several months. This process, called osseointegration, helps to reduce bone loss, common with tooth loss.
Convenience – Dental implants mimic your natural teeth. You can brush and floss them normally to keep your oral health in top condition.
Appearance – Your dental implant will look just like your natural teeth and your implant crown will match the shade of your teeth so that your smile appears seamless.
Implant Treatment and Restoration
Once you have your implant placed with one of our trusted oral surgeons, we will give your body time to heal and for your implant to stabilize in your bone. Once that occurs, usually after several months, we will create a custom implant crown to complete your smile.
Your implant crown will sit atop your dental implant post on the abutment. We will attach it to your implant abutment and you will be able to chew and speak normally. You can brush and floss how you normally do and when you come in for routine dental exams and professional cleanings, we will check your implant to make sure the gum tissue is healthy.
Why Dental Implants Fail
Dental implants can give you decades of reliable service with the proper care. Failure of a dental implant can come from having a strong clenching and grinding habit, developing gum or bone disease, and from improper care. Your dental implant’s success depends upon excellent home care, maintaining your routine dental appointments, and communication between you and Dr. Ibrahim. If you ever feel that something is not right, including soreness, mobility, or bleeding gums, let us know right away so we can address it and potentially save your dental implant.
