Rochester Hills area patients ask about the benefits of implants
Dr. John L. Aurelia of the Rochester Hills area is dedicated to helping patients of all ages achieve and maintain great oral health. In order to do so, he also provides cosmetic services including the placement of restorations such as dental implants.
Dental implants are commonly used to replace natural teeth missing from the smile. They are sturdy titanium posts, which act as a replacement root structure and they are completed with a dental crown to act as a false tooth. This method of restoring the smile is a surgical treatment and is done by quality dentist, Dr. John L. Aurelia.
Although other restorative options are available for many patients including dental bridges and partial dentures, there are many benefits of implants. They are:
- Easy to maintain
- Can hold dentures in place
- Can be used to anchor large bridges
Patients may lose their natural teeth for numerous reasons, but regardless of what brings them to our practice for replacement, most patients will be examined to determine if this method of restoring the smile is most appropriate for their needs and budget. Patients who are the best candidates for dental implants are those with enough bone structure to maintain stability of the implant. Patients interested in a temporary option may be better suited for dentures, while those who want a middle-of-the-road solution may be interested in dental bridges.
