Dental Implant Placement in Detroit, MI

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that serve as anchors for replacement teeth. They are made from titanium and other materials that are biocompatible with the human body, and they can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. The implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it fuses with the bone over time. This fusion process is called osseointegration, and it’s what gives dental implants their stability and durability.

At Brandon H. Barton Jr., D.D.S., P.C., we offer patients the convenience of having all implant-related procedures done under one roof and create customized restorations for each patient to ensure natural-looking results and ultimate comfort.

The Different Types of Dental Implants

Different types of dental implants are available, including endosteal and subperiosteal implants. Endosteal implants are the most common type and are surgically placed directly into the jawbone. Subperiosteal implants are placed on top of the bone. These implants are usually recommended for patients who don’t have enough healthy bone to support an endosteal implant.

The Dental Implant Process

Before placing your implants, our dentist in Detroit, MI, will evaluate your oral health to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. Our dentist will examine your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine if they are healthy enough to support an implant. They will also take X-rays of your jaws and teeth to evaluate the health of your bone structure. If necessary, they will recommend bone grafting or other treatments to strengthen your jawbone before placing the implants.

Next, the dentist will place the titanium post into your jawbone. This procedure is typically done under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Once the implant has been placed, you will need to wait several months for the bone to heal around the implant. This process, called osseointegration, is necessary to ensure the implant is secure and stable.

After the implant site has healed, our dentist will attach an abutment to the implant post. This metal piece connects the implant to your crown or other restoration. Finally, the crown or other restoration will be attached to the abutment to complete your new smile.
