PLYMOUTH, MI, February 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The longest lasting option that patients have to replace missing teeth is through the use of a dental implant from Plymouth dentist, Dr. George Atsalis. Losing a tooth is never a pleasant experience, but Dr. Atsalis is available to offer the best in quality dental care to help restore a patient's smile when teeth are missing.
Whether it is caused by years of decay or a sudden injury, it is important for patients to visit Atsalis Dental Excellence for options to restore his or her smile. With the availability of dental implants in Plymouth, patients can experience a restored smile without the need for dentures. An implant is a replacement tooth root that is directly attached to the jawbone. Once it is secured, a dental crown will be attached to the implant to complete the process and replace the missing tooth.
"The most significant benefit of dental implants is that they provide you with the most permanent tooth replacement option. Since the dental implant becomes a functional part of your mouth, it can potentially last for as long as 25 years, or even a lifetime, depending on various factors," said Dr. George Atsalis, a dentist in Plymouth, MI.
Before considering dental implants in Plymouth, Dr. Atsalis invites patients to visit Atsalis Dental Excellence for a proper consultation to determine if this is the best procedure for a smile restoration. In order to receive dental implants, patients must have enough gum and bone material to effectively support the implant. Dr. Atsalis will also be able to discuss costs and insurance information with each patient before recommending the procedure.
Once Dr. Atsalis has determined dental implants are the best choice for his patient, the process will begin by anesthetizing the area around the tooth and securely fastening the implant directly to the jawbone. After this is finished, patients will have to wait between six and twelve months for their gums to heal around the implant, further securing it into place. Once the healing process is complete, Dr. Atsalis will attach a small connector post to the implant.
Plymouth, MI dentist, Dr. George Atsalis, will then make an impression of the area to create a crown that will fit in perfectly with the rest of the patient's teeth. Once the crown is ready, Dr. Atsalis will do a final check to make sure the fit and coloring are correct. If everything is correct, he will attach the crown to complete the procedure.
