Rebuild Your Oral Health With Dental Implants in Sterling Heights

Teeth implants are intended to enhance your life! At our office in Sterling Heights, dental implants are doing great things for our patients, such as:

  • Preserving oral and overall health

If you are missing teeth, you deserve to know how implants could help you. Our dentists, Dr. Laura Pepa and Dr. Frank Rosner, can discuss the advantages of implants for you. Call 586-257-2081 to schedule a consultation and get started on your new smile.

Create a Solid Foundation For Your New Smile

We want our restorative dentistry to provide the maximum benefit for you. Implants have added benefits for all of these options:

  • Dental Crowns – A crown and implant can give you a complete tooth replacement from top to bottom without altering any healthy teeth.
  • Dental Bridges – To replace multiple teeth, a few implants can secure a dental bridge in your mouth.
  • Dentures – Implant-supported or implant-retained dentures can replace an entire arch of missing teeth.

We work with an oral surgeon to make sure your implants are placed correctly. After your mouth has healed from that procedure (around four months), we can attach your restorations to give you a complete and fully functional smile.

You may not see your implants, but you will get the advantages that come from having them:

  • Eat without worrying about your replacement teeth coming out
  • Speak clearly without your teeth moving around
  • Enjoy a younger-looking appearance by preventing the kind of bone loss that can occur if you don’t replace your teeth or if you get traditional dentures

At Laser Dental Associates, we want you to enjoy the best teeth replacements that modern dentistry has to offer. You can get that with dental implants in Sterling Heights. Call 586-257-2081 today to discover how they could replace what’s missing from your smile. You can also request an appointment online.

Common Questions About Dental Implants

How much do dental implants cost?

Your cost will depend on many variables. To determine the final cost of your implants and replacement teeth, we’ll have to know how many implants you need, the condition of your jawbone and oral health, and the type of replacement teeth you want. Once we’ve examined your mouth, taken X-rays, and created a treatment plan, we can give you an accurate price on your implant treatment.

Are dental implants painful?

The process for getting dental implants is usually comfortable. An oral surgeon will place your implants using anesthesia, then your dentist here at Laser Dental Associates will anchor new replacement teeth to them after a healing period. As for placing your new teeth, we use painless anesthesia with The Wand®, plus laughing gas is always available to help you relax.

How are dental implants inserted?

Once you and your dentist have decided on a treatment plan, we’ll refer you to a trusted local oral surgeon who will place your implants. They will map out a placement procedure so they know the exact location to put each implant. Over the next few months, your implants will fuse with your jawbone, becoming a sturdy base for new teeth.

Can dental implants come loose?

An implant must be surrounded by healthy gums and bone to heal properly once it’s placed. Depending on your oral health, we may recommend gum disease treatment or a bone graft before you receive an implant. Once healed, loose implants are exceptionally rare. In some cases, the restorations attached to your implants can come loose. If so, we can tighten or replace the restoration.
