Treatment for missing teeth may include placement of dental implants for patients in the Rochester, MI area

Rochester, MI area patients who have experienced a missing tooth due to injury or disease will want to work with their dentist to restore their smile with an appropriate treatment option. Many patients choose to restore their smile with a permanent restoration such as a dental implant.

Drs. John Aurelia and Dina Khoury of Rochester, MI assist patients with dental implants, along with other dental restoration options for one or more missing teeth.

Understanding dental implants

Drs. John Aurelia and Dina Khoury believe in providing dental implants for the patients that are the best candidates for these repairs. Dental implants are restorations made of titanium metal. They appear as a small screw that the dentist will place during oral surgery into the bone of the jaw. Then, the implant can be restored in a variety of different ways. It can:

  • be covered with a dental crown to replace a single missing tooth
  • be covered with a dental bridge to restore one or more missing teeth in a row
  • be utilized along with a full denture for optimum stability and strength

Dental implants can be versatile, and with the help of our dental team, many patients will be able to experience the benefits they provide.

Dental implants treatment for missing teeth in Rochester, MI

The first and most common reason patients choose dental implants is because they can last a long time. They can be a wonderful investment in the smile for many of our patients. Second, dental implants use the bone of the jaw for optimum strength and durability. Because the implant is placed into the bone of the jaw and fused in place with bone growth, the implant is sturdier than any alternative tooth replacement option. This is what makes it a great way to stabilize full dentures with the placement of several dental implants along the dental arch. Third, dental implants look and function like the natural teeth once did. These restorations use the bone of the jaw just as a natural tooth does and provides restored chewing and biting efficiency. What sets dental implants apart from other dental restorations used for tooth loss is their ability to maintain the bone of the jaw. When patients have other solutions such as full dentures, they may experience bone loss that can cause the jaw to look “sunken in”. This is common with patients utilizing traditional dentures. However, with the use of dental implants, patients can maintain the jawbone and enjoy a more youthful appearance long after the teeth have been lost.

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.
