Dental Implants Grosse Pointe Woods, MI

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, Carol Quinn, DDS in Grosse Pointe Woods, MI recommends state-of-the-art dental implants.

Implants are designed to act like natural teeth, restoring your smile’s health and function as close to normal as possible. Unlike other types of tooth replacement treatments, our Grosse Pointe Woods implants are:

  • Designed to last the rest of your life
  • Be non-invasive to neighboring teeth
  • Look and feel like a natural smile
  • Support a wide variety of restorations
  • Maintain healthy bone and facial structure

Understanding Dental Implants

Implants in Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan are made out of biocompatible materials that are gentle to your body. Their makeup encourages new bone formation, which bonds to the surface of the implant (osseointegration,) permanently fusing it into your smile.

On top of your implant, Dr. Quinn will attach an abutment, which extends above the gumlines and into your mouth. We use this portion of the implant to support a permanent crown, bridge, or even a denture for functional and aesthetic purposes.

The durability of implants makes them strong enough to use in pairs to anchor multi-tooth restorations. A full-arch denture can be stabilized with as few as four implants total.

Does it Hurt to Get Implants?

Dental implant treatment is much gentler and straightforward than most people assume. As a minimally-invasive procedure, getting an implant only requires a small amount of anesthetic. Most of our patients say that it’s easier than having a tooth removed. Sedation options are also available to help ensure your comfort.

A Few Things to Keep in Mind

Before getting dental implants, Dr. Quinn will need to evaluate your bone density, anatomy, and gum healthy. Issues such as periodontal disease or sinus issues may contraindicate implant therapy.

We encourage you to schedule a no-pressure implant consultation at our office in Grosse Pointe Woods to find out if implants are right for you!
