Losing your teeth used to mean some major life changes. You might need to soak your replacement teeth overnight in cleaning solution instead of brushing them, for example. But when you secure your teeth replacements with dental implants, you care for them in much the same way as your natural teeth.Chris D. on how North Oaks Dental saved his smile Read Transcript
I had a tooth that was fused to my jaw which was, I guess, they haven't really heard of that before. There's not many cases of that, so they took that out and I was able to get an implant in, and it pretty much saved the whole bottom part of my mouth because if I wouldn't have done that all the teeth would have just started growing in together and it would have been bad. So coming here, getting an implant done, that was very helpful for my smile.
It went a lot smoother than I thought. When I first got in, you know, I was pretty nervous but again, here's another reason why I say that I feel very safe coming here is because I was very nervous before the surgery or the implant, and you know, the doctor came in and he used a very calm voice, and he was, you know, able to give me pain medicine and just explain the whole process to me so that I kind of knew what I was going to be going through.
The doctors seem like they care, and the staff is very professional. I like that. It makes me feel, again, it makes me feel safe. It makes me want to come here.
In addition to the simple maintenance, dental implants offer other benefits:
- Have a natural feel and function. They perform so much like your natural teeth, you’ll probably forget you even have implants.
- Keep jawbone strong. Because they are embedded in your jaw, implants act like natural tooth roots. They stimulate your bone to help keep it from shrinking.
- Stay put. Their position in your jaw also means your implants aren’t going anywhere.
- Can last a lifetime. With proper care, you can keep your implants for life.
- Offer versatile solutions. Implants can replace a single tooth, several missing teeth, or a whole mouthful.
Our Royal Oak, MI dentists know their implants! Dr. Alvin Daboul trains other dentists in dental implant procedures, and he published a book geared toward patients called Getting Ready for Dental Implant Surgery. To schedule a consultation, call 248-712-1522.
Choose the Right Dental Restoration for Your Dental Implants
Because of our dentists’ expertise with implants, you can choose from many different types of dental restorations. We can:
- Replace a single tooth with a dental crown
- Replace several missing teeth with a fixed dental bridge
- Replace anywhere from several missing teeth to an entire mouthful of teeth with dentures over dental implants
We can even attach a full arch of replacement teeth to just four dental implants in a procedure called All-on-4®. This works especially well to keep replacement teeth in place in your lower jaw, where your mouth’s natural suction isn’t as strong. An All-on-4 restoration in the upper jaw leaves your palate exposed, so you can more fully taste your food. Depending on your situation, you may be able to get implants and a mouthful of new teeth all in the same day!
Technology and Sedation Expedite Your Dental Implant Procedure
Careful planning is the key to a successful dental implant procedure, and planning is easier with our advanced dental technology. With 3D imaging, our dentists can clearly view your entire facial structure, including bone and nerves. Doing so highlights any potential complications and helps us select the best sites for implant placement.
We’ll thoroughly numb you for your procedure, but you may also want to receive dental sedation. You can choose from three types, including IV sedation. You can also stay relaxed by using headphones to listen to music while our dentists work. Just select the tunes you want from Pandora Internet Radio.
Dental implants look, feel, and function like your natural teeth! To find out more, call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522.
