If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Shawn Van de Vyver, our experienced dentist, may suggest dental implants as an excellent tooth replacement method. A popular advancement in restorative dentistry, dental implants allow our team at Great Lakes Dentistry to replace a single tooth or your entire smile, based on your individual needs and goals. Dental implants are surgical treatments that are completed over the course of many months; our entire dental team is here to guide you through each step of the treatment process.

To place dental implants, we first surgically place small metal posts, often made of titanium, into your jawbone where the missing tooth was located. We then give your gums and bone a chance to heal. This is important because it allows your natural bone tissue to fuse to the metal post, creating a long-lasting bond. Once healed, we use an abutment and dental restoration, generally a dental crown, bridge, or denture, to complete your dental implant treatment. We also offer mini dental implants to help support dentures and other dental restorations.
There is no reason to go another day without a brand-new smile that looks beautiful and functions properly. If you would like to see if you are a candidate for treatment in Shelby, Michigan, we invite you to call and schedule a consultation with our office. We are excited to help restore your smile!
