About Dental Implants
For a lasting and natural-looking replacement to missing teeth, modern dental technology at DentalWorks - Lincoln Park in Lincoln Park, MI by our dentists offer dental implants to repair and bring back a gorgeous, healthy smile. Dental implants surgically insert titanium posts in the jawbone to substitute for the weakened tooth root, so false teeth can be joined for a dependable fit that will not involve adhesives or food restrictions. The false teeth can be shaded and contoured by our dentists to blend with the patient's teeth for a realistic finish. For individuals who are wanting to restore one tooth or many teeth, dental implants at DentalWorks - Lincoln Park can be an ideal, effective option.
"The Staff really makes the difference! Wonderdul attitude, and even better service."- J.H. / Google / May 23, 2018
"The staff here goes above and beyond, I’m not kidding. I went there yesterday for a simple retainer replacement with my two kids (a two year old and a five month old) and literally had my hands full. When ur came to payment, I had an issue with my healtcare debit card that required me contacting the card company which required being transferred multiple times (and I had to make multiple phone calls) all the while my kids starting to get antsy. One of the receptionists was nice enough to keep my kids company while I was on the phone. They were also nice enough to let me nurse my 5month old in one of their back rooms and taped the window so I could have some privacy. What I thought would be an in and out appointment turned into a very long one but the staff made it so much easier. They’re so easy to talk to and their new facitilty is really inviting and smells really good."- G.Q. / Google / May 19, 2018

What to Expect
Before a dental implant is used, a in-depth oral exam will be completed by our dentists to decide the health and strength of the gums and jawbone. If the person is a suitable candidate for dental implants, dental X-rays and molds will allow our dentists to plan the best placement for the dental implants in the jawbone. The individual can be given local anesthesia and/or local sedation to minimize discomfort while our dentists implant the titanium post into the tooth socket. During the next 3 - 6 months, the implant and bone will fuse together while healing and after the implant is strong enough, the false tooth or teeth will be added to the implant by a connector. Our dentists can tweak the implant and replacement teeth for a comfortable and confident fit.
Generally, patients have minor or no pain after their dental implants, but a handful of patients may feel temporary discomfort and soreness that should be helped with an over-the-counter pain medication, such as aspirin or Tylenol®. To lengthen the wear of dental implants, patients should develop a good home oral care practice including flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. Bi-annual dental appointments at DentalWorks - Lincoln Park in Lincoln Park, MI for professional cleanings and dental exams are also crucial to dental implant care. Dental implants will last many years with proper care, but dental implants may eventually need to be repaired or replaced.
If dental implants are determined to be necessary for health, the patient's dental insurance company may cover at least part of the expenses. But, cosmetic dental implants are usually not covered by insurance companies. At the time of the patient's initial consultation, the office manager of DentalWorks - Lincoln Park can determine their insurance coverage and talk about payment options and financing plans.
