About Dental Implants
For a lasting and attractive substitute for lost teeth, advanced procedures at DentalWorks - Westland Center in Westland, MI by our dentists use dental implants to repair and bring back a gorgeous, fully-functioning mouth. Dental implants surgically insert titanium posts in the jaw to substitute for the weakened root, so false teeth can be joined for a dependable fit that will not involve adhesives or eating restrictions. The false teeth will be shaded and shaped by our dentists to blend with the patient's teeth for a natural finish. For individuals who are wanting to restore a single tooth or many teeth, dental implants at DentalWorks - Westland Center can be an ideal, effective option.

What to Expect
Before a dental implant is used, a in-depth oral exam will be completed by our dentists to decide the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the person is a suitable candidate for dental implants, dental X-rays and molds will allow our dentists to plan the ideal location for the dental implants in the jawbone. The individual can be put under local anesthesia and/or local sedation to minimize discomfort while our dentists implant the titanium post into the tooth socket. During the next 3 - 6 months, the bone and dental implant will fuse together while the bone heals and after the dental implant is strong enough, the false tooth or teeth can be added to the dental implant by a connector. Our dentists can tweak the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and confident fit.
Generally, patients experience minor or no discomfort following their dental implants, however a handful of patients may feel short-term aches and soreness that should be helped using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To lengthen the wear of dental implants, patients should develop a good home dental care practice that includes daily flossing, brushing, and anything suggested by the dentist. Bi-annual appointments at DentalWorks - Westland Center in Westland, MI for dental cleanings and oral exams are also crucial to dental implant care. Dental implants will last many years with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.
If dental implants are deemed to be required for oral health, the patient's dental insurance company will often pay for a portion of the final bill. But, elective dental implants are ordinarily not paid by insurance plans. At the time of the patient's initial consultation, the office manager of DentalWorks - Westland Center can figure our their insurance coverage and explain payment methods and financing available through our office.
