in Birmingham, MI
Dental implants are considered one of the best and modern solutions to replace a lost tooth. This treatment is suitable for patients who have maintained good oral hygiene but who have lost a tooth due to gum disease or an injury.
Your dentist may recommend this treatment if you need to replace one or more teeth without making any adjustments to adjoining teeth, as is the case with bridgework.

Types of dental implants available
There are two types of implants available.
- Endosteal: These implants are the most common type. They are made from titanium and shaped like small screws. The implants are placed directly in the jawbone.
- Subperiosteal: These dental implants are placed under the gum but are typically on, or above, the jawbone.
Dr. Scott J. Owens will thoroughly evaluate your situation and advise on the perfect option for your needs.
Benefits of dental implants
There are numerous benefits to having dental implants over other tooth replacement options.
The prevention of bone loss ranks high on the list of benefits. Your jawbone needs to be stimulated by your teeth to prevent deterioration, and the loss of a tooth can cause jaw degeneration. When this happens, you may experience changes in your facial structure, which in turn leads to premature aging.
Dental implants are aesthetically pleasing. They come in a variety of shapes and colors and can be matched to your natural teeth.
You can chew food better with implants, and they won’t affect your speech which can sometimes occur with dentures.
You will not need to buy any special products to clean and care for your dental implants. You must continue to brush and floss as normal and visit your dentist twice a year for a professional cleaning and dental exam.
If you would like to discuss a long-term solution to fixing your smile and regaining your self-confidence, we will be ready to assist you with our personalized dental implant services.
