Dental Implants in Dexter
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.

Denture Replacement With Dental Implants
If you wear dentures, our surgeons are excited to offer a long-term and comfortable alternative with dental implants. The All-on 4® treatment concept is the ideal denture replacement solution that uses four implants to hold a fixed denture. Your replacement teeth will stay in place, look and feel natural, and function just like healthy adult teeth.
Many patients who wear dentures find them to be cumbersome and feel embarrassed to remove their teeth during meals. Dentures do not fuse to the jaw bone, which can lead to jaw bone atrophy. Implant-based tooth restoration eliminates these issues and also helps maintain facial structure by stimulating the jaw bone.

Reviews From Our Dental Implant Patients
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."
Richard Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure
"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."
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."
John Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure
"My experience here was absolutely phenomenal. Dr. Sanker is very kind, very knowledgeable, knows what he’s doing, and very comforting. The staff here, they’re a great extension of the doctors, and everyone here maintains a professional and positive attitude. The rest of the staff is incredibly welcoming. The follow-ups were great. They’re very concerned with making sure that you had the best possible experience. The procedure was, absolutely, without a doubt, successful. After the procedure I feel completely back to normal. I would give Michigan Oral Surgeons five stars out of five. "
