Many patients have questions about dental implants when considering this procedure. Are dental implants safe? Will they look like natural teeth? With modern advances in dental implant technology, there are many ways to achieve a bright, natural-looking, permanently renewed smile with little to no risk.
We truly are the elite specialists for dental implants, and the surrounding area at Lakeshore Dental Implant Specialists. We strive to provide our patients with comprehensive dental care and provide the best possible dental implant experience in a comfortable and professional environment.
Dental implants are a dental technology that can be used to replace either a single tooth or many teeth at a time. They are typically permanent or very long-lasting and look just like natural teeth. Usually, our Warren dental implants consist of two separate parts: the post, which goes into the gum and jaw, and the cap or crown, which is attached on top.
Many different types of implants can be utilized depending on the patient's specific needs. Needing a single implant, multiple, or the entire upper or lower set may determine the variety of implants used. Certain types of implants also require more intact jawbone than others.
Zygomatic Dental Implants: These implants are useful when a patient has significant bone loss and needs implants in the upper jaw. Since they are anchored deep up into the cheekbone, they can be a good option when standard implants are not.
All-On-4 Implants: This innovative method includes a full set of both upper and lower teeth that can be replaced and mounted using only four jaw implants. For many patients, the full implant process can be completed in just 24 hours, which is why it is sometimes referred to as "Teeth-in-a-Day".
