Dental Implants

Do you have missing teeth or have recently had tooth extractions? Our dentist may recommend dental implants for you! These custom-fitted implants look and function like your real teeth and are a great alternative to dental bridges. We encourage you to call Atsalis Dental Excellence at 734-453-1190 to learn more about dental implants in Plymouth, MI, and schedule a consultation with our team.

Dental implants are lasting, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth or complete arches of teeth. The dental implant post, which is a screw made of titanium, is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. It replaces the missing tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. A period of healing is then often required to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.

Following this healing period, our dentist will place the dental implant restoration, or replacement tooth, which fits on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, or a complete or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.

Replacing a missing tooth can restore your smile to optimal health, function and appearance. A dental implant is a great option for restoring your smile because the implant is designed to look, function and feel just like your natural teeth, and with proper care, it can last a lifetime. For more information about the benefits of implant dentistry and to schedule your implant consultation, please call or visit us soon.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are dental implants safe?

Yes, dental implants are absolutely safe. They’re made from biocompatible materials to integrate naturally with your body and promote your health. The implant procedure is highly successful and complications are rare.

When you lose a tooth, your jawbone eventually weakens and leads to a myriad of issues. These include a weakened bite, increased risk for oral diseases, and decreased self-confidence, as you may begin to look older.

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement solution that can restore jawbone strength and help you look youthful.

Does root canal therapy hurt?

Though root canal therapy has a scary reputation, it’s usually not painful. Most patients compare it to receiving a tooth filling. Our office uses advanced technology, local anesthesia, and we offer sedation to make sure you don’t feel any unpleasantness during your procedure.
