Fill gaps in your smile with the next best thing to real teeth.

There is a reason so many people are turning to dental implants to replace their missing tooth or teeth. After all, this small restoration really Dental Implantdoes work just like a real tooth. It will give you the confidence to eat your favorite foods, smile more often and just feel rest assured in your appearance. Our Troy, MI, dentists Dr. William Carmody and Dr. Debra Halsey are proud to offer dental implants.

What is a dental implant?

In order to understand how a dental implant is right for you, it is first important to understand how it works. This metal post is inserted into the jawbone where its sole purpose is to function just like your missing tooth roots. After our Troy, MI, restorative dentist has placed the implant the jawbone, jawbone and metal post will naturally fuse together to become one permanent unit. It takes anywhere from 3-6 months for the jawbone to fuse together with the implant.

Can dental implants replace more than one tooth?

Dental implants can be a great option for patients missing one, several or even all of their missing teeth. While a single implant will be used to replace a missing tooth, multiple implants can be placed along the arches of the jawbone to support dentures for those dealing with complete tooth loss.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

  • A long-term tooth replacement
