Troy MI area practice merges extensive experience, ongoing follow-up care to offer best dental implants

Many types of tooth restorations are designed to look like the natural teeth. Crowns, fillings, bridges, and conventional dentures are made from tooth-colored materials and they look like natural teeth when you look in the mirror and smile.

Dental implants, however, are designed to both look just like the “real thing,”and to feel and function just like the teeth you lost. It makes sense then that the “best”dental implants in Troy MI are those that last a lifetime!

A trustworthy partner

After decades of clinical and scientific research, the overall success rate for dental implants is well over 90 percent. In fact, the range of 97 to 98 percent is often mentioned in literature. What is also frequently mentioned is the importance of selecting an experienced dental professional.

Repeatedly, it’s mentioned how the dentist’s experience influences the outcome of the implant treatment. The professionals at John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC have studied dental implants extensively, are experienced in the dental implant process, and can assess and plan accordingly for any factors that may hinder proper healing.

As part of the healing process, the underlying bone must fuse to the dental implant or “artificial tooth root”placed in the jawbone. This natural fusing, known as “osseointegration,”provides a good foundation for the dental crown, which will eventually be placed on top of the implant via a connector piece or “abutment.”

Qualified and capable professionals like Dr. John Aurelia and his team can assess the likelihood of success and risk factors based on considerations such as:

  • The area where the implant is placed
  • The amount of underlying bone to support the implant
  • The amount of dental implants needed to properly secure the new teeth in the case of multi-unit bridgework

Dr. Aurelia partners with a number of leading specialists in the Troy area, so you can be sure the dental team is well equipped to set you up for success of the dental implant through every stage of the process.

Your part

Since dental implant-supported teeth are designed to be no different from natural teeth, this also means you must practice good oral hygiene. While the crowns and implants can’t decay like natural teeth, destructive inflammation known as “peri-implantitis”can develop in the hard and soft tissues surrounding your new teeth. Habits such as smoking and tobacco usage are additional factors that threaten the survival of your implant.

During follow-up appointments and ongoing check-ups, John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC can examine the treatment site and determine if healing is going as planned. Problems may be identified and in-office or changes to at-home maintenance may be recommended to increase the odds of implant survival. Bring any questions you may have, including how to care for dental implants and what to expect after the procedure, with you to an appointment with Dr. Aurelia at the Troy area office. Call (248) 243-6044.

Terrible experience. I booked an appointment back in August for October 30 (first available). Not a big deal at all. I never received a confirmation call for my appointment which I thought was odd but still made the 30 minute drive to this highly rated offed to be told they didn’t have my appointment in part of their system but did have record of it on another part of the system. They told me I could wait and see if the next appointment didn’t show up, but the staff made it seem like it was my fault for showing up to an appointment where I didn’t get a confirmation call for. Nevertheless, I did have a text confirmation from when I scheduled the appointment months ago. Very disorganized office. Don’t waste your time. I’m sure the dentists themselves are wonderful but the office staff makes this place an office to avoid.
