Dental Implants Offer Many Great Benefits, Contact Our Walled Lake Office Today!
Dental implants are positively changing the way people live. They provide a foundation for replacement teeth that feel, look, and function as natural teeth. If you have lost teeth, you will regain the ability to eat virtually anything. We will help you smile again with confidence, knowing that your teeth appear natural.
Often, the fear of losing a tooth and living with an incomplete smile, can prevent patients from taking care of a dental problem quickly. Unfortunately, patients will suffer from unbearable tooth pain, because they do not realize they have options.
A dental implant placement is the best restorative solution to ensure the long-term health of your mouth. If a tooth must be removed or is missing, our dental office can help!
Dr. Steven Hechtman has many successful years of experience in providing patients with a variety of restorative solutions. Not only is his team able to eliminate tooth pain utilizing dental implants, but is also able to restore a beautiful new smile that his patients are proud to show.

What Is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a small, medical-grade titanium post, that is surgically placed into the jaw. The implant itself, fuses with the jaw bone to create a stable base for the new tooth, and the abutment, which is inserted into the implant serves as a base for the crown. The crown, is typically a porcelain restoration, that is placed on top of the abutment and looks and functions like the natural tooth.
Dental implants involve cooperation between an oral surgeon and our office. The surgical phase of treatment is completed by the oral surgeon, and the restorative phase is completed at our office. If you are looking to learn more about implant technology (this link takes to to Mouth Healthy, a website brought by the American Dental Association).
What Are the Benefits of Replacing a Missing Tooth with Dental Implants?
Patients considering dental implant therapy will benefit many advantages not available from other forms of dental restoration, such as full-arch dentures, fixed bridges, removable and partial dentures. An important benefit of dental implants, is that they slow the shrinking of gum and bone tissue, which helps prevent premature aging. Once in place, implants will offer many years, if you take care of them and keep your mouth healthy. Good oral hygiene (brushing and flossing) and maintaining regular appointments with our dental office is important. Below are a few of the important benefits of dental implants:
Offers an effective tooth replacement method
Maintains the health of adjacent teeth
Enhanced Aesthetics – restorations look original
Do not require root canals
Decreased bone loss
Made of medical-grad titanium offering increased stability
Dental implants are resistant to decay
