Find out what sets dental implants apart when it comes to tooth replacement options.

Here at the Troy, MI, office of dentists Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halsey, we offer a complete array of tooth replacement options, including one of today's most popular treatments: dental implants. These artificial tooth roots are placed into the jawbone to support one or more false teeth.

Here are some of the amazing benefits that dental implants have to offer:

Acts Just Like Real Teeth

One of the biggest reasons people receive dental implants after tooth loss is because they are looking for a restoration that will function and feel like the real thing, and dental implants are truly the next best thing to a real tooth. Not only does the implant itself effectively replace your lost tooth roots, but it also naturally bonds together with bone and tissue, making it a permanent part of your mouth. Once the full implant has been placed, you won’t be able to notice a difference between the artificial tooth and your real one.

Doesn’t Require Special Care

Another benefit to getting dental implants is that this restoration doesn’t require special maintenance and care. While you will want to visit our Troy, MI, family dentists every six months (as per usual) for routine checkups, besides these visits and maintaining good oral hygiene, dental implants don’t need additional attention. Just brush them twice a day and floss them daily like you do the rest of your natural smile.

Preserve the Jawbone

Once the implant is placed, your jawbone will receive the stimulation that it needs but wasn’t receiving during tooth loss. By providing the bone with necessary stimulation, you can prevent severe bone loss and provide your facial structure with the support that it needs.

Lasts a Lifetime

Looking for a tooth that could last you the rest of your life? Since implants fuse together with the bone and tissue in your mouth, it’s not surprising that this restoration is designed to last a very long time. With the proper oral care in place, and by making sure that you continue to see your dentist for routine checkups, it’s common for implants to last for decades on end. Depending on when your implant is placed, you could have it for the rest of your life.

Are you looking to touch up your smile? While brushing, flossing, and rinsing are all crucial for your dental hygiene, they only go so far when your teeth have already experienced damage, decay, or staining. Fortunately, here at Rochester Smiles in Troy, MI, Debra G. Halsey, DDS, specializes in remaking smiles, offering a host of cosmetic treatments to bring the smile back to your face! Take a look at some of the options we offer at our office:

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a great option for teeth with chips, gaps, cracks, or any conspicuous blemishes. Dental bonding applies a composite (specially colored to match your original teeth) to the surface of the affected tooth and shapes them in a more aesthetically-pleasing manner. Your cosmetic dentist will cure the composite to make sure your bonded tooth is both functional and durable.

Whitening

Many of us enjoy starting the day with coffee or tea, or relaxing in the evening with a glass of red wine. Unfortunately, these beverages, along with substances like tobacco, can stain our teeth. While over-the-counter bleaching kits and strips can whiten your smile to a degree, an in-office peroxide treatment is a longer-lasting and more effective way to brighten and whiten your teeth.

Veneers

If your teeth are oddly shaped or deeply discolored, veneers are a great long-term solution to fix the cosmetic issue. Generally made of porcelain and formed to look like a natural set of teeth, veneers adhere right to the surface of your smile for a picture-perfect look!

Dental Implants

At our Troy, MI, office, we offer dental implants as an option for severely damaged or missing teeth. Our cosmetic dentists use a metal post, secured in your jawbone, to act as the root of an artificial tooth. Undetectable and strong, dental implants are a less cumbersome alternative to dentures, and have the ability to last for decades on end!
