Once a tooth goes missing, the jawbone at the affected area begins to shrink. At Sood Family Dental in Shelby Township, MI, our dentist, Dr. Sood, can recommend ways to revitalize your smile and restore it as a whole, depending on your specific needs. Learn how dental implants can help your smile and improve your oral health.

What is a Dental Implant?

These substitute tooth roots consist of three parts - the post, abutment, and crown. They are the closest match to a natural tooth and provide convenience, durability, and support if you have a broken bite, and slurred speech due to missing teeth. Similar to a titanium screw, when the dentist places the dental implant into the jawbone, it fuses with your natural bone to provide a solid foundation for the crown. They can last a lifetime with adequate oral hygiene and annual visits to our office because they are stain-resistant and combat decay.

How Dental Implants Help Your Smile

Our dentist Dr. Sood recommends dental implants for patients who need to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or all of them. She also utilizes the screws to support removable dentures. Dental implants offer a complete smile makeover to those who choose them. They help improve your speech and bite. These replacement roots also inspire you to grin, communicate in a conversation regularly and allow you to chew the foods you had to sacrifice due to pain and discomfort.

What to Expect from Treatment

After developing your customized treatment plan, and addressing your smile goals, questions, and concerns with your dentist, the process begins. During a minor surgical procedure in our Shelby Township, MI, office, Dr. Sood will place your dental implants. You'll receive post-operative and oral care instructions to ensure optimal success. Maintaining a healthy implant requires brushing around the tooth crown with a soft-bristled toothbrush, using low-abrasive toothpaste, and flossing hard-to-reach places - in-between visits to our Sood Family Dental office.

If your smile is a sensitive subject because of missing teeth, discussing dental implants with your dentist offers long-lasting reinforcement in your bite, facial appearance, and self-esteem. At Sood Family Dental in Shelby Township, MI, Dr. Sood and staff want patients to look and feel their best, and we offer a variety of services to help them reach that stage.
