Replace Missing Teeth and Improve Oral Health
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 in Dexter, MI?
Dental implants are an extremely versatile tool for replacing missing or damaged teeth because their titanium post can support a single prosthetic crown or even a full arch of new teeth. They are comprised of three components:
- The titanium post, or screw, acts as the tooth root. Once your oral surgeon has placed the post into the empty tooth socket, it spends the next several months integrating with your jaw bone.
- The metal abutment acts as the connecting piece. After the post has properly fused with the jaw bone, the abutment is attached, allowing your restorative dentist to connect the prosthetic crown.
- The prosthetic crown is designed to look just like a natural tooth, and it will be custom designed to fit seamlessly into your mouth. Once it has been attached to the post via the abutment, the restoration is complete.
What are the Benefits of this Restoration Option?
With so many options available for replacing missing teeth, you may be wondering how you know which solution is right for you. In most cases, your health, current condition, and preference are the largest contributing factors. If you are healthy enough to undergo the treatment, we strongly recommend dental implants in Dexter, MI.
They provide patients with the most benefits when compared to other tooth replacement options. When replacing a single tooth or several teeth, another common option is a tooth-supported bridge. While this choice will restore your smile and regain some oral function, its drawbacks include the need to be replaced after several years of wear. They also require the grinding down of your healthy teeth. Dental implants, on the other hand, are self-supportive. You do not have to sacrifice your other teeth to restore your smile.
Patients looking to restore a full arch or mouth of teeth often thing traditional dentures are their only option. The All-on-4® treatment concept, however, uses a dental implant-base to provide a much more advantageous solution to severe tooth loss. The most common benefits seen with implant restoration include:
- Prevention of bone loss. Their integration with the jaw bone prevents it from losing stimulation and deteriorating.
- A natural appearance. They are designed to look just like your natural teeth, so no one will even know they’re there.
- Full functionality. Their unique three-part design allows them to function just like natural teeth, which means you can eat whatever you want.
- Easy care. Caring for dental implants is as easy as caring for your other teeth; just brush twice and floss once every day.

Reviews From Our Dental Implant Patients
Yvette Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"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."
Beverly Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"I somehow broke a nerve in the tooth, and it was getting irritated. When I first came in, the experience was really great. The staff was friendly. It was a fun experience, believe it or not. Dr. Sanker is a sweetheart. Very pleasant and explains things to me, and we get along great. Surgery went great. I had no pain, I had no bleeding. I’ve had the extraction, he’s put the implant in, and I am waiting for it to heal. I would highly recommend Michigan Oral Surgeons. They did a fantastic job — very professional. The staff is great. The doctors are great, down-to-earth, and I can’t imagine going anywhere else."
Kris Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure
"I had had an infection in a tooth and needed it extracted, and I've since had the dental implant done about two months ago. These guys are wonderful, very friendly, make you feel very much at ease. I get hugs from one of the nurses, from one of the techs, all the time there. Dr. Lopez is a very nice surgeon. He's very cordial; he's very welcoming. He tells you everything that he's going to do, step by step. I'm pleased with the work; it's very comfortable. I had a wonderful experience at Michigan Oral Surgeons and would recommend it to anybody and would come back myself."
Thomas Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure
"I had three teeth that were missing, and they had been missing for some time. I always wanted to get implants, and I just found the opportunity to do it. This staff — they're all so good. You go up to reception, and they're friendly. When you get into the room, his dental assistant sees you, and she really helps set the pace for everything. I couldn't believe it — it was fast. We did three implants in maybe a half hour or something, like boom boom boom. Dr. Fear is a cool cat. He's reassuring, he's professional, he's efficient. Definitely had a good experience, and I would highly recommend him, and I do recommend him."
Kristy Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"So, I have been a lifelong clencher of my teeth, and I was having a lot of pain, especially in the back of my jaw, and I came for the first consultation to have some teeth extracted. Both the staff within the office as well as the dentists were awesome. Dr. Lopez is extremely caring. I was very nervous the day I came in to see Dr. Lopez, and not only did he take the time but he explained step by step exactly what was going to be happening. Dr. Fear was also awesome. They both were very comforting and kind, and I should also mention, throughout the procedure, checking how — each step, are you comfortable? Was there anything that you need? The implants feel exactly like your natural teeth; you would never — even chewing, you would never notice any difference. I had a phenomenal experience here, and I would absolutely recommend Michigan Oral Surgeons to anybody having any issues whatsoever."
