Traditional Dental Implants in Troy, MI
Traditional implants provide a solid, permanent replacement for broken, decayed, or missing teeth. They involve replacing the root of your tooth with a titanium base, which can then support prosthetic teeth. Unlike most dentures or bridges, implants are rooted into your mouth, and thus provide a lasting solution to tooth damage. For this reason, we recommend implants for the vast majority of our patients who have serious dental damage.
Installing dental implants involves the following three stages, each requiring a separate dentist visit:
1. Initial Inspection. The first step is to meet with Dr. Milan, who will examine the damaged tooth or teeth and determine whether an implant can solve the problem. He will also inform you of other treatment options. If an implant will work and it is what you want, you move on to:
2. Planting The Post. At this stage, we remove any remains of the initial tooth and insert the titanium base into the jawbone. Through a process called Osseo integration, it will fuse with the bone and become a permanent part of your jaw. This will provide a solid base for:
3. Placing The Prosthesis. During the third visit, we will place a prosthetic tooth over the implant. Our prostheses are designed to mimic the color of your teeth, as well as to provide a similar level of hardness and functionality. We can thus integrate them seamlessly into your mouth, making them indistinguishable from other teeth.
Dental implants are a versatile solution, allowing you to replace individual teeth or whole sections of your jaw. They can also be integrated with other prostheses, notably through implant-supported dentures. Thus no matter the cause or extent of the damage to your teeth, dental implants will be able to fix it.
In addition to traditional dental implants, Dr. Milan also installs mini implants in certain situations. These devices are narrower than traditional implants but otherwise function similarly. This makes them ideal if you lost teeth in areas of your mouth with a narrow dental arch, where there is relatively little bone in which to install a full titanium post.
Mini implant installation is less invasive than its traditional equivalent and thus leads to less pain and fewer potential complications. It is also less expensive. As with traditional implants, mini implants can hold implant-supported dentures or mount replacement teeth permanently in your mouth. Dr. Milan will determine if you are a candidate for mini implants during the initial inspection, and will be happy to install them if so.
