Dental Implants in Adrian

Restore Oral Health and Function

Dental implants are a popular tooth restoration solution for one or more missing teeth. Our oral surgeons are implant specialists who look forward to helping you achieve a healthy and complete smile.


What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are tooth replacements that are specially designed to look and function just like natural teeth. When you lose a tooth, or you have been missing teeth for an extended period, it can cause issues with your ability to eat, speak, and smile. Dental implants can replace your missing tooth or teeth all the way down to the root to ensure that your oral function and your beautiful smile are restored.

The three parts of a dental implant include the following:

  • The implant post is a medical-grade titanium screw that takes the place of your tooth root. It is placed into the tooth socket and given time to heal and fuse with the jaw bone. Once healed, the implant post is the support for the rest of the restoration.
  • The abutment is the connector piece that attaches the implant post to your prosthesis to ensure your restoration is secure.
  • The prosthesis or crown is the final piece of the implant restoration. Depending on how many teeth you are replacing, this final piece may be a single crown, a multi-tooth bridge, or a full-arch fixed denture. In any scenario, the prosthesis will be custom-designed to match your natural teeth and preferences.

Why Dental Implants?

When you have lost a permanent tooth, or you need to have one extracted, there are many options for tooth replacement available at our office in Adrian, MI. We provide choices that will meet all our patients’ needs, including tooth-supported bridges, partial and full removable dentures, and a variety of dental implant restorations.

Choosing dental implants is the best choice for your overall oral health, and they are the most cost-effective and long-term solution. Dental implants are the only replacement solution that maintains your oral health and prevent the issues often associated with tooth loss. Your jaw bone relies on the stimulation from chewing food to remain healthy, so when you are missing teeth and cannot chew properly, the jaw bone quickly begins deteriorating. Dental implants are the only replacement option that restores your tooth down to the root, which means once your implant post integrates with your jaw bone, it will remain stimulated and healthy.

Other replacement options, such as tooth-supported bridges and partial or full dentures, are less permanent and can contribute to other health problems. Tooth-supported bridges require the grinding down of adjacent teeth for attachment, which means you must sacrifice healthy teeth to restore a tooth. Dentures often slip, cause discomfort and sore spots, and can get food stuck underneath, causing decay. Dental implants mimic the exact anatomy of your natural teeth; consequently, you won’t have to worry about relying on other teeth for support or having issues with food. With dental implants, you can eat whatever you want and care for them like any other teeth.

Are Dental Implants the Right Choice for Me?

One of the many great things about dental implants is that they can be used in a range of restoration procedures at our office in Adrian, MI. A single dental implant can replace a missing tooth, several dental implants can be used to replace multiple missing teeth, or dental implants can even be used to support bridges and full fixed dentures (All-on-4® treatment concept). The best way to find out if any of these dental implant restorations are right for you is to visit our Adrian, MI, office for a consultation. At your consultation, we will perform a thorough oral exam, take detailed 3D and X-ray images, and evaluate your health history before developing a personalized treatment plan. Our doctors have undergone years of training and are the highest qualified professionals to develop and perform dental implant restorations.

Denture Replacement With Dental Implants

Implant-based restoration is an ideal solution for patients who currently wear dentures but seek a healthy, comfortable, and long-term alternative. Dentures can restore the appearance of missing teeth, but they do not restore full oral function. Dental implants can support a fixed denture through the All-on 4® treatment concept, which allows you to eat and speak with full functionality of your smile again.

Traditional dentures rest on the bony ridge in the mouth, leaving you susceptible to jaw bone loss. Dental implants fuse to the jaw bone and can support your replacement teeth, providing beautiful results that also benefit oral health.

"Well, you know, I’ve had a great experience with Michigan Oral Surgeons. The doctor I experienced was outstanding. He had a great bedside manner. He was very comforting. The recovery worked out to be fantastic. They were there the next day after the procedure to see how I was doing. They followed up a few days later to see how I was doing as well, and I felt well-treated and well-cared for, and I feel very satisfied with it. I’m satisfied with the outcome and I feel very blessed to have them take care of me. I highly recommend Michigan Oral Surgeons."

"I had the extraction done because I was having terrible pain in my mouth, and I needed my molar to chew, so I decided to have the implant done after that. When I arrived, the ladies at the office were so nice. They had me fill out some information, and then I got to meet Dr. Lopez, who put me at ease immediately. He is so friendly and kind and nice and explained the procedure to me. I’m very happy with the decision to have the implant done. I had thought that it would be excruciating pain, which it was not. It was very easy. Dr. Lopez called me right afterwards. I’ve never had a surgeon actually call me to check up on me. The experience was amazing. I would highly recommend Dr. Lopez to work on anyone’s mouth."
