Long-Lasting Dental Implants
In many cases, if bridges, crowns, or other restorative procedures aren’t right for you, a dentist may recommend a dental implant. Scott J Owens DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry regularly assists Farmington Hills, MI patients with restoring their smiles. As well as diagnosing patients, we fabricate the artificial teeth needed for dental implants, and apply them after placement surgery.
How Do They Work?
Implants eliminate the problems associated with other dental appliances. Dental implants are inserted using three crucial components: titanium posts, metal balls (located at the top of the posts), and rubber O-rings. The post of an implant is surgically rooted into the jawbone. A false tooth is screwed onto the metal ball component – which rests on the gum line. The O-ring cushions the area between the artificial tooth and gum line.
Why Get Teeth Implants?
One of the main benefits of teeth implants is the fact that they’re inserted directly into the jawbone. Unlike other types of restorative appliances, implants don’t depend on neighboring teeth for support. Aside from regular preventative dental care, implants require little to no maintenance, as they’re designed to resemble real teeth. You’ll have the freedom to smile, eat and speak.
What to Expect
The staff at Scott J Owens DDS Cosmetic & Family Dentistry specializes in creating and applying teeth implants. Our dentists assess our Farmington Hills patients’ needs, and determine whether or not they’re good candidates for implants. Additionally, we construct the artificial teeth. The only step we don’t oversee is implant insertion. We refer our patients to only the most reputable surgeons or periodontists for placement surgery.
