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
Richard Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure
"I have teeth that had decayed, and they’d been capped, and they just weren’t usable — they weren’t going to make it — so we went ahead and decided to go to an extraction and an implant. The extraction went well — pretty darn painless — and then when I go back to my dentist, I have the actual tooth put in. That was one of the best processes I’ve ever been through. Dr. Fasi’s been the person for the last two. He’s a very likable, nice person. He puts you relaxed. He’s self-assured and generally a friendly person. I had a great experience here, and I highly recommend Michigan Oral Surgeons."
Ken Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure
"I had a tooth in the very front, and unfortunately, about two and a half years ago, it got infected. What I came to them to ask them to have done is to put an implant in. When I walked in the door, the one thing I definitely like is that it's a brand-new, bright office. Dr. Fasi put me at ease very quickly because he is a very calm individual. Nice standard language — he isn't talking technical terms, and that's very comforting. You're like talking to your neighbor. The surgery went very well. I've had no discomfort or pain since the surgery. My experience here has been very pleasant. It's been stress-free. I would have no trouble recommending them to any of my family or friends."
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."
Leonard Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure
"I was referred here by my dentist during regular checkups that I had a bad tooth on the lower right side here that had to come out. Great office. The staff's all wonderful here. Jennifer, Dr. Sanker, everybody's nice. Dr. Sanker is very, very patient, makes you feel very comfortable, very at ease. He explains everything thoroughly. That makes you feel comfortable. He's a perfectionist. I had a very good experience here at Michigan Oral Surgeons, and I would recommend it for anybody."
Sally Reviews Her Dental Implant Procedure
"My dentist suggested and recommended that I have a tooth pulled, so he sent me out here to see these folks, and my first impression was a very good one. I could see that it was very professionally run. After I saw Dr. Fasi, he explained the whole series from beginning to end. They were really good at keeping me at ease. The technician and Dr. Fasi were very relaxing. Now that I’m nine months into it, I am so grateful that this is the route I took. The staff here and the doctors are so accommodating and caring and understanding. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Michigan Oral Surgeons — they’re very good and very helpful."
