Summer is almost here, which means your social calendar should be picking up steam. Will you be able to share your smile confidently at all those festive outings? Can you eat whatever you want at the next cookout without worrying about the pain or your ability to chew? If you have suffered through tooth loss as an adult, odds are good that you did not answer any of our queries affirmatively. But that’s where we come in with some viable relief. Our Royal Oak, MI dentist’s office has the tools, training, and technology to help restore your quality of life through a dental implants procedure.

Today we wanted to outline a few solid reasons why you should consider getting a dental implant from us and we also wanted to touch on what that procedure will look like for you. Please keep reading, and then be sure to follow up with a call to 248-712-1522 (Royal Oak) 248-963-1969 (New Hudson) so that we can put your transformation in motion.

Reason #1: Functionality

Whether you realize it or not, each and every tooth plays a critical part in your ability to chew your food and speak clearly to others. If you have lost what you once had, don’t force yourself to chew out of one side of your mouth or to accept your new speech patterns! A dental implant can restore the functionality you’ve been going without.

Reason #2: Self-Esteem

You’ve probably discovered that without a full smile or normal (as in not collapsed) facial structure, you won’t look your best or feel very confident! And when you don’t feel self-assured, your opportunities both at the office and after hours will be greatly diminished. Don’t become a hermit this summer. Come to North Oaks Dental instead.

Reason #3: Health

In the wake of tooth loss as an adult, your health will suffer as you won’t be getting the fiber-rich foods you need (you won’t be able to chew them). Beyond that, your remaining teeth and gums will also be more vulnerable until you find a workable solution. That’s what we are here to help you figure out.

Here’s What The Procedure Looks Like

There is a simple two-step process for restoring your smile with dental implants. We place the implant strategically through your gums and into your jawbone. Once your implant is placed, we allow your jaw to heal. All the while a process called osseointegration will be going on. This means your bone is fusing with your titanium implant to create a bond that will last for years to come. Once you are healed enough, we will restore your implant with a crown (the part that looks like a tooth). We also have an option for restoring your smile in just one day. Whatever your situation may be, our Royal Oak, MI dentists can evaluate you and determine which type of implants will be the best choice for your situation.

Our Dental Implant Solutions

Single Dental Implant: This is the option that you would choose if you needed just one tooth replaced. A single dental implant is topped with a single crown to replace a tooth that has been knocked out, has fallen out, or has been extracted.

Implant-Supported Dentures: You can secure your dentures using dental implants. Our implant-supported dentures are more stable and reliable than removable dentures alone.

All-on-4 Dental Implants: We can create a restoration for you that can be placed all in one day. We will remove any teeth necessary, place the implants, and attach your new teeth all in one procedure! We use a local anesthetic to ensure that you don’t feel any discomfort. You may also want to receive dental sedation. You can choose from three types, including IV sedation. You can also stay more relaxed by using headphones to listen to the music of your choosing while our dentists are working on your smile.

Implant-Supported Bridge: Our implant-supported bridge consists of three or more teeth set into a base of some sort and attached to your jaw using dental implants. This option can vary depending on how many teeth you need to replace, up to an entire arch.

Mini Dental Implants: If you’ve been told by another dentist that implants aren’t for you because of a weak jaw or other factors, get a free second opinion from us. Mini dental implants, which are about half the size of regular implants, may be a good option for you.
