Dental Implants in Troy, MI

Dentla Implants Troy, MIThe highly-skilled dentists at Rochester Dental offer a wide range of dental implant treatments. We believe dental implants provide the most natural-looking and functioning tooth replacement choice available today in our Troy, MI dental office.

It All Starts with Tooth Loss

The need for state of the art tooth replacement options begins with tooth loss. Accident, extensive decay, and the congenital defect can compromise tooth structure to the extent that extraction is the only course of action. Additionally, advanced gum disease, or periodontitis, remains the number one cause of tooth loss among American adults, according to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research.

Fortunately, tooth loss--involving one tooth or multiples--does not have to spoil smile aesthetics, facial features, eating or speaking. The dentists at Rochester Dental in Troy have the expertise to evaluate prospective implant patients and to place custom-fabricated dental implants and lifelike restorations, such as porcelain crowns, for well-functioning, no-gap smiles.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Are You A Candidate For Dental Implants?

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.

Implants are so well designed that they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.

Dental Implants Procedure

Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth.

Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.

Like any restoration, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time. You can start the dental implant process by calling our Troy, MI dental office today and asking about dental implants.
