Revitalize Your Smile with Dental Implants
If you have one or more missing teeth, it can hinder your confidence. Thankfully, you don't have to live with a lackluster smile, thanks to the latest advancements in dentistry. At Lakeshore Dental Specialists in Detroit dental implants are considered the first-line of treatment to replace a missing tooth.
Our high-quality dental implants consist of a titanium fixture that secures your new tooth crown to your jawbone. With a success rate of more than 98%, you can restore your smile to a like-new condition. Our dentists combine a high level of expertise with uncompromising patient care to rejuvenate your smile safely and effectively.
A dental implant replaces the entirety of a missing tooth.
To understand dental implants, it is important to consider the anatomy of a natural tooth. Each tooth has two parts: a crown and a root. The crown is the part that is visible when you open your mouth. The root anchors each tooth to your jawbone. When you lose a tooth, it is necessary to replace both the crown and root. Without a dental implant, the jawbone in the area of the missing tooth can begin to be resorbed (broken down and absorbed by your body) creating an area that can appear more "sunken in". This, along with other benefits, is why we consider dental implants to be among the best options for replacing a missing tooth.
Our Detroit dental implant dentists insert a high-quality titanium post into your jawbone.
This is done to secure the crown to your bone, taking the place of your original tooth root. A porcelain crown is added, which looks and feels exactly like a natural tooth.

Replacing a missing tooth sooner rather than later is the key to success, so don’t hesitate to book your appointment.
Starting from the moment you lose a tooth, your surrounding gums and bones begin to shrink or resorb. This results in a space that is too narrow to place a dental implant. However, if months or years have passed until you feel ready to replace your missing tooth, all hope is not lost. The dentists at Lakeshore Dental Specialists specialize in a procedure known as bone regeneration.
A bone graft stimulates the growth of new gum and bone tissue that can support a dental implant. We can help in even the most complex cases. If you are unsure whether you are a good candidate for implants, we encourage you to give us a call. A healthy smile can be life-changing. You owe it to yourself to speak with a qualified dental professional to learn about your options.
On the day of your procedure, our experienced dentists will place your titanium implant.
You may need a small incision to stimulate gum healing and prepare for placement of your new crown. Your implant needs time to heal before your final crown can be delivered. This generally takes between two to six months. Once your implant heals, your Lakeshore dentist will take a digital impression of your implant and surrounding gums. The impression-making process is comfortable, quick, and painless. Your implant-supported crown is placed two to three weeks later.
Our dentists are there for you, even after your procedure. Dental implant placement is a process, and our team will guide you every step of the way.
After your initial surgical procedure, most discomfort subsides in three to five days. Pain relief medications may be prescribed to ensure you have a comfortable recovery. At Lakeshore, our dentists will advise you of proper aftercare to ensure you have an excellent recovery. If you have any questions as you heal, call our office for assistance.
After your dental implant settles, you will be smiling and chewing just like before, perhaps even better!
Our high-quality titanium implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Porcelain crowns can last from 10 to 15 years before they need replacing. Coming to Lakeshore Dental Specialists for a checkup every six months is the best way to ensure a long-lasting result. It typically takes two to six months before you are ready to receive your final crown.
