Dr. Richard Golden at Dr. Golden Laser Dental understands how a missing tooth in your smile can affect your self-confidence. To restore a missing tooth, we offer dental implant restoration for our patients in Detroit, Michigan, wanting to restore their smiles. Dental implants have the versatility to replace all of your teeth, several or even just one.
Dental implants are permanent replacements for missing teeth which are securely placed in the jawbone. Our experienced dentists use dental implants to secure a tooth or teeth in place. Our dentist performs oral surgery to place a biocompatible titanium screw into your jawbone where the missing tooth was previously located. What the titanium screw does is acts as the tooth root by holding your implant in place securely.
During the healing time after the implant is placed, the jawbone fuses to the titanium screw. After the healing is complete and the implant is secure, our dentist will attach the tooth onto the post. The type of dental restoration will depend on how many teeth are being replaced. This means you may receive custom-made complete or partial dentures, a bridge or crown. Our dentist ensures that your implant is both comfortable and pleasing to blend in with your smile.
We work hard to help you achieve the smile you deserve and look forward to helping your smile regain its health and function to be like your natural teeth. Caring for your implants is similar to caring for your teeth, and with good oral hygiene, they will last as long as your natural teeth, or longer.
