What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are custom restorations designed to replace an entire tooth from root to crown. They’re created with your unique smile needs in mind to blend seamlessly with your surrounding teeth for a flawless look. As the top-rated restorative treatment, dental implants will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth for a lifetime of healthy smiles. 

A dental implant is made up of three parts:

  • The Implant: A titanium post that’s surgically placed into the jawbone to function as the root of your prosthetic tooth.
  • The Abutment: The piece that connects the post to your custom restoration. 
  • Custom Restoration: The visible part of your restoration, typically a porcelain crown.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

As a revolutionary restorative treatment, dental implants provide patients with a variety of benefits that other solutions can’t match, including:

  • Secured to your jaw
  • Stimulates healthy bone growth
  • Natural look, feel, and function
  • Easy to maintain
  • Stable and comfortable
  • Decay resistant
  • Can last a lifetime with proper care

Our Dental Implant Process

Receiving dental implants in Birmingham, MI with Dr. Stone can be achieved in just a few visits to our dental office. 

Initial Consultation

During your first appointment, Dr. Stone will discuss your oral health goals and answer any questions you may have about your restorative dentistry options. He’ll perform a full-mouth examination to determine how much bone, gum tissue, and space is available for implant placement. Certain patients need to undergo supplemental procedures, such as a bone graft, to ensure the success of their implant placement surgery.

Placing Your Implants

At your implant placement procedure, Dr. Stone will begin by administering a local anesthetic to ensure you don’t feel any discomfort during treatment. He’ll then surgically place the dental implants into your jaw, where they’ll heal and naturally integrate themselves into the bone. The entire healing process can take between three to six months.

The Custom Restoration

After the healing period is complete, you’ll return to our Birmingham office for your final appointment. Dr. Stone will attach your customized restoration, typically a porcelain crown, to complete your treatment. Once your restoration is secured, you’ll leave our office with a stunning new smile. 

Dental Implant Care

With proper care, your dental implants can last a lifetime. Fortunately, caring for your implants is almost no different from caring for your natural teeth. Follow these tips to keep your restoration in pristine condition:

  • Brush twice a day 
  • Floss daily
  • Rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash between meals
  • Visit our Birmingham dental office twice a year for regular exams and professional cleanings
