John L. Aurelia, Patients
A healthy, beautiful smile is within reach with tooth transplant in Rochester Hills. The term, “tooth transplant,” actually refers to the closest thing today’s dentistry has to creating a natural tooth: the dental implant. Depending on your needs, the “transplant” part of the implant process can also refer to the preparation required to make this alternative to conventional bridges and dentures a reality.
Area specialists are an extension of the team you’ve come to know and trust, John L. Aurelia, DDS, PLLC. Advanced techniques and technologies in the hands of specialist-partners allow even those who have gone without teeth or properly-fitting dentures for a long time to be implant candidates. Unlike traditional tooth replacement that depends on suction, adhesives or surrounding crowned teeth for support, your crowns and dentures will get support from the implant, placed in your jawbone.
The jawbone can atrophy when part of your mouth isn’t stimulated. After just 12 months without a tooth, the bone encasing and supporting the teeth decreases in width by 25 percent. After another 24 months, the height of the bone begins to waste away. This bone loss can progress to the point where it’s hard to miss it. Facial shape changes. As the lower third of your face collapses, you can look older than your years.
Implants stop further bone loss and can even reverse damage. Bone and tissue may be regrown. Among challenging cases where there isn’t enough tissue to support the implant, bone can be grafted to the jaw. There are so many possibilities! Don’t wait to restore the confidence you feel when you smile or the pleasure you get from eating favorite foods without discomfort caused by missing teeth or loose dentures.
