What are the benefits of the dental implants procedure for Shelby Township residents?

Missing teeth can be devastating to a patient’s smile. Those who have experienced the loss of natural teeth may find that they are extremely self-conscious about the way they look, and may lack the self-esteem and confidence that they once had. Additionally, the loss of natural teeth can cause the existing teeth to shift out of place and create gaps in the dental arch. When natural teeth are missing or extracted, it is important that patients seek a solution as soon as possible to avoid causing further problems with their teeth that may cost more in the long run to address.

Patients who need tooth restoration may consider a dental implant procedure. Shelby Township area residents can visit Dr. John L. Aurelia in Rochester Hills to learn more about the benefits that dental implants can provide. They are considered the “€œgold standard” in cosmetic dentistry, as they are highly successful and can last a lifetime.

However, not everyone is a viable candidate for dental implants. Dental implants require that a patient have sufficient bone structure for placement. This is because the strength of the dental implant is derived from the jawbone. If there is not enough bone, patients can consider bone grafting or an alternative treatment that may work better for their lifestyle and budget.

Dental implants are the preferred option when it comes to cosmetically restoring a smile after tooth loss. No other restoration is as strong and durable as a dental implant. Dental bridges are an alternative solution, but require healthy teeth to be reshaped and bridges will only last a decade or more with proper care. They will need to be replaced over the life of a patient. Partial dentures are removable and may be troublesome for many patients. Most patients want a permanent solution, so partial dentures are often only considered from an economic standpoint or as a temporary solution until the patient has made a decision on a permanent alternative.

Review Posted By Real Users
I have been bouncing around to dentists' offices for the past four years trying to find one that (1) doesn't hurt my face and mouth and (2) doesn't gross me out. My most recent dentist prior to Dr. Aurelia reeked of smoke and insisted on not wearing gloves when he fit my bite guard because otherwise it wouldn't fit properly. After that disgusting experience, I was out of there and dentist-less once again. I came across some Google reviews for Dr. Auerlia and thought I'd give his office a try. At the very least, it couldn't be worse than the last guy, right?

Even though Dr. Aurelia is out of network for my insurance, his office is well worth the extra out of pocket cost. His office got me in for an initial consult almost immediately because I had some pain concerns. They identified the issues right away and helped me get into a specialist for (another) root canal (on the same tooth - the horror!) the next day. I needed a filling in between my two front teeth and he was able to do the filling without novocain and I didn't feel a thing. I have my first cleaning next week so I will find out then how efficient they are with that (it took 90 solid minutes of my mouth being agape at my last dentist which is way too long), which is my last area of general wonderment about the quality of services provided. I can't imagine I'll need to find a new dentist anytime soon. If you are looking for an office full of helpful and friendly people and want high-quality, timely, and cost-conscious (i.e., won't do unnecessary work to get more monies) dental care, I highly recommend checking out Dr. Aurelia's office.
