The Process of Getting Teeth Implants Explained

Theresa Porter Dental Implants

When root canals, crowns, or bridges are not indicated, dental implants may be the right choice for your tooth restoration procedure. At Scott J Owens DDS Cosmetic and Family Dentistry, we diagnose your condition and determine the correct procedure for you. This requires a consultation, which includes examining your problem areas, taking x-rays, and discussing your preferences in treatment options.

The Edge Over Other Procedures
Dental implants can increase your quality of life. In fact, your teeth are so important to everyday living, that replacing them when they are too damaged or lost should be an essential task when the situation arises. Teeth implants can allow you to speak clearly and eat without any issues. They are also very reliable with the highest success rate of any tooth replacement option.

While tooth restorations such as bridges and dentures may in some cases weaken the jawbone or even require regular replacements, dental implants strengthen the jawbone and act much like your regular tooth and root. Teeth implants can last for the rest of your life, and they also do not need stability from adjacent teeth in order to stay in place.

How the Procedure Works
Once we have agreed on dental implants as the best procedure for your situation, you should expect to feel informed during the entire process. You will be instructed on how to prepare for the procedure and what to expect during the consultation and planning period. Ask us what pain management strategies may be best for you, and we will give you suggestions of what to do prior to the procedure, on the day of the procedure, and after the procedure.

Because inserting dental implants is a surgical procedure, we will refer you to the best professional for your needs for this part of the process. We will plan the procedure, create the implant tooth to fit your unique gums, and follow up with any application procedures that may need done after the surgical insertion.

In a surgical insertion, strong, long-lasting titanium posts are gently and safely inserted into the jaw. These posts adhere to a metal ball that comes out from the gum line to support the artificial tooth implant. With support from our office, and the professional surgeons we have carefully researched, you will have everything you need to go through the teeth implant procedure comfortably and smoothly, and worry-free! For great teeth implants, Farmington Hills, Michigan has the solution for you!
