While there are many ways to restore a missing tooth, dental implants are emerging as the most effective in the industry. That is because dental implants are designed and created to look, function, and feel like natural teeth. A surgical treatment, dental implants in Southfield, Michigan are a long-lasting solution to restoring your smile. Led by our skilled dentist, Dr. Sylvan Stern, our dental team guides you through the treatment process and ensures you feel comfortable and confident in your choice to receive dental implants.
To place dental implants, a small titanium post is surgically placed into your jawbone where a missing tooth was once located. Then, your jaw and gums are given time to heal. This is not only a safety precaution; it also allows time for the bone to fuse with the metal post for durability and strength. When this has occurred, two parts are connected to the post. The first is a small attachment called an abutment, and the second is your custom-made dental restoration, which is held in place by the abutment. Based upon your individual needs, your dental implant restoration may be a dental crown, dental bridge, or denture. To learn more about dental implants, we encourage you to contact our dental office. We look forward to restoring your smile!
