What are dental implants used for in Rochester Hills, and how is a dental crown incorporated?

Maintaining a beautiful smile is not easy for some patients. When an individual deals with lost teeth, they may have to consider restorative treatments to bring their smile back to its original beauty. Whether a patient has lost a tooth due to trauma, disease, or extraction, a dental implant can be used to address the space. When combined with a dental crown, Rochester Hills patients can have a false tooth replacement that can look completely natural and function just as a natural tooth would.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are used to restore patient smiles after the loss of a natural tooth. They are surgically implanted into the jawbone and the post acts as a root system. Then, the dentist will attach an abutment and a dental crown. Rochester Hills’ patients will be able to restore their smile with a dental implant and dental crown to put tooth loss and the way it made them feel behind them.

Dr. John Aurelia has used dental implants in conjunction with traditional dentures. Full dentures can be stabilized with several dental implants. The dentures are retrofitted to snap into place over the dental implants, giving them the stability that suction and dental adhesives cannot provide. This can help denture-wearers improve their chewing efficiency, making dentures a more acceptable restoration.

In rare cases, dental implants can be used with dental bridges. The implants can be placed to give the bridge a place to rest, and this can allow a patient to restore several teeth with just a few dental implants. This is not a common option, but it can be considered for patients who are interested.

Patients who are good candidates for dental implants are those who have a healthy smile and sufficient bone structure. Since the dental implant is placed into the bone, it is essential that there is enough bone to hold the implant in place, as well as allow osseointegration to occur. This is when the bone grows around the implant, thus stabilizing it as the bone would a natural tooth root. This is the way a dental implant derives its strength and stability.

Review Posted By Real Users
Visiting in Rochester Hills and had an aching tooth. A crown that had been recently replaced in FL was apparently not adjusted quite right and was giving the tooth above a great deal of pain. Since Dr. Aurelia is my daughter's dentist, I called at 8A to be given a 9A appointment. Dr. Aurelia diagnosed the issue quickly and knowledgeably as one that just needed a little grinding down of the new crown. What a guy! What a dentist! Very pleased indeed! If I move back to MI, I would use his practice for sure. Everyone was so accommodating and professional.
