Implant procedure for tooth replacement customized to Rochester Hills patients’ needs

At John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC, the tooth implant procedure in Rochester Hills is unique to each patient; however, there are some general features of the process shared by all patients who benefit from this type of tooth replacement.

After your dentist determines, in consultation with you, that implants are the best way to support your new teeth, the process of filling your gaps won’t be complete until:

  • A local anesthetic is administered for your comfort.
  • The sites where your implants will be placed are accessed.
  • The implants are surgically placed.
  • The surgical sites are closed or sutured.
  • The implants fuse to the surrounding jawbone in the ensuing weeks.
  • Abutment pieces are applied to connect the implants and crowns.
  • Your crown is placed on top of the abutment and stabilized thanks to the implant rooted in the jawbone.

Follow-up appointments are scheduled to ensure your new teeth are functioning as they should and to check for bleeding, swelling, unusual redness, and other problems. While artificial teeth don’t decay like natural ones, a progressive inflammation like gum disease can develop around implants. Like periodontitis, peri-implantitis can threaten the integrity of the implant and your beautiful, new teeth.

Some of the biggest differences between the process of your getting an implant and the process that your friend or family member may go through have to do with preparing your jawbone. It’s important to have adequate bone density and mass to support the implant. If you’ve been missing teeth for quite some time, the bone may have atrophied. Before moving forward with the implants process, bone grafting may be necessary. The grafting process doesn’t have to be a time-consuming or involved; it may be done at the same time your implants are placed.

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.
