If you are looking for tooth replacement options in the Rochester Hills area, chances are you’ve looked into the benefits and costs of dental implants. Dental implants are a long term method for replacing missing teeth that can be as durable as natural teeth. The implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the missing root and can be completed with crowns, dentures, or even bridges depending on the number of teeth missing.
Dental implants have become extremely popular because of their benefits. Once they are placed in the jawbone they heal during a process called osseointegration. During this healing time the bone fuses around the implant creating a firm, stable support for a restoration. In addition, the stimulation of the jawbone reduces the risk of resorption, which is common with restorations that sit on top of the gums. With proper oral hygiene and routine dental care, dental implants can remain for a patient’s lifetime.
Many patients who inquire about dental implants are concerned about the cost. While dental implants vary in price, depending on the type used, they are a good value compared to other restorations that will need to be replaced multiple times. We work with all of our patients during the insurance claims process to maximize benefits and minimize the out of pocket costs associated with dental implants. We believe that all patients should have access to high quality dental restorations that can improve quality of life.
