How the dental implant system can restore smiles for Farmington Hills area patients


By
Patients who have experienced trauma, disease, extraction, or large areas of decay may experience the loss of natural teeth, which can dramatically affect the function, and appearance of the smile. Dr. Richard S. Bernstein of the Farmington Hills area has helped many individuals in restoring their smiles with the dental implant system; one of the best options cosmetic dentistry has to offer.

The dental implant system is extremely popular, as it allows patients to restore their smiles for a lifetime. Dental implants are titanium posts, which Dr. Bernstein places into the jawbone. The implant uses the jawbone for strength and stability, making it one of the most effective restorations available.

Dental implants have been used for many years and oral surgeons continue to recommend them for patients with otherwise healthy smiles who need to replace teeth. Dental implants may also be used in conjunction with full dentures to hold them in place and allow patients to enjoy better stability and function. Full dentures have a tendency to slip out of place, fall out, or become ill fitting, while implant-supported dentures are less troublesome and provide patients with more confidence.

Dental implants take some time to complete. This is because the process of osseointegration must occur to provide stability to the implant. Osseointegration is the stimulation and growth of the jawbone, which fuses to the implant and keeps it firmly in place. This can take from a few weeks to several months, but ensures permanency of the restoration.

Dr. Bernstein of the Farmington Hills area is excited to offer the dental implant system for patients who are seeking a restorative solution that works best for maintaining the function and beauty of their smiles.
