A Member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Michels is an expert in dental implant placement.
Dental Implants are the modern method for permanently replacing teeth. Implants consist of a titanium post, which acts like a root, with a porcelain crown on top. They are used to replace a single tooth and can be used in many other dental restorations such as, an implant supported bridge and implant supported dentures, which are perfect for those unhappy with their traditional removable denture.
If you think you might benefit from dental implants take advantage of our Complimentary Dental Implant Consultation. Dr Michels uses the latest technology, including our 3d x-ray machine to get a full 360 degree 3d view so that he can plan a precise and appropriate treatment plan. He has significantly increased the quality of life of his patients. Come on in and see if Dental implants are right for you.
What are dental implants? Dental implants are a dental component that supports a crown, bridge, denture, or other dental prosthesis and holds a replacement tooth or bridge.
Should I get dental implants? As long as the jawbone is thick enough to receive a dental implant, most people can do so. You’ll need to consult with one of our doctors to decide if a dental implant is necessary for your circumstance.
What is a dental implant procedure like? First, a titanium post is inserted into the jawbone—the socket of the missing tooth. The jawbone will need to heal around the implant, which can take a few weeks. We’ll also get impressions of your teeth so that your new tooth or teeth fits and matches perfectly. An abutment is then attached to that post to keep the tooth securely in place. We’ll also get impressions of your teeth.
How long do dental implants last? With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. The doctors at Affinity Dental will make sure you are well versed with care-taking techniques if we decide you could benefit from the procedure.
