“Dr. Gillesby and his staff are amazing. They treat you like family.”
Just because you lose a tooth doesn’t mean you’re doomed forever to a disappointing smile or difficulty chewing. Dental implants are a practical and permanent solution that our team can provide by surgically placing an anchor for a replacement tooth.
At Dowagiac Family Dentistry, dental implants happen in three phases:
1. A skilled dentist places the post into the jawbone
2.The area heals and undergoes osseointegration, which means it combines with the bone to create a solid foundation.
3. An artificial tooth is placed securely onto the implant.
We also offer mini dental implants. Mini dental implants are narrower in diameter than traditional dental implants and can be placed in a less invasive manner. This makes them an excellent option for providing added denture stability in cases where a grafting procedure to create enough bone volume for the placement of full size implants would otherwise be needed.
Call Dowagiac Family Dentistry to schedule an appointment so we can assess your unique needs and find a custom solution that’s worth smiling about!
