At Flossophy Dental Boutique, we are dedicated to providing the people of West Bloomfield and Farmington Hills with the best possible dental implant experience. Flossophy is a modern dental office with a Zen-like theme. Our dental implant specialists understand that this procedure can be a scary thing. We have made it our mission to provide you with a calming environment and all the information you need so that you can have the peace mind that you are making the right decision for your oral health.
What is a dental implant?
Simply put, dental implants are artificial tooth roots. During the procedure, titanium posts are surgically implanted into your jawbone. Anesthesia is applied so as to limit the patient’s discomfort during the procedure but most patients just feel pressure. The bone and gums then heal around the implants to fixate them in place (a 98% success rate in healthy patients). Flossophy uses high quality titanium implants that are scientifically engineered to work in any quality of bone to help ensure that implants can be placed with less grafting and in jaws with advanced bone loss (the AnyRidge dental implant system). Depending on each patient’s situation, this process can involve serval phases and treatment time can vary. After the posts fuse with your jaw and gums, the dentist secures a crown or denture to the implant, which creates a natural looking smile. With proper care and oral hygiene, a tooth implant can last a life time.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants have several advantages including:
– A natural tooth shape and form for a single tooth replacement
– Improved speech and eating function
– Dental prothesis does not have to be removed
– Dentures do not move around
– Prevents bone and gum loss
– Can last many years to a lifetime with proper care
– High success rate of surgery (98%)
Receive Treatment with the Latest Technology
At Flossophy, we believe in providing our patients with the best possible care. That’s why we have invested in the latest, cutting-edge technology. We want you to have the confidence that we will build you your best smile.
3D CBCT machine
Using our innovative 3D CBCT machine is the latest on the market providing the same necessary information with less radiation. Our dental implant surgeons are able to provide our patients with computer guided dental implants, which not only makes any tooth implant safer, but also gives you a more natural smile due to ideal placement.
PRF (platelet rich fibrin) for stem cell bone grafts
Our dental implant surgeons are trained how to use platelet rich fibrin for stem cell bone grafts. Blood is drawn and separated in our unique dental centrifuge. Specific blood products provided added benefit to traditional bone grafting. Growth factors accelerate quality bone healing. White blood cells provide a natural antibiotic effect. Fibrin prevents movement of the graft material, the leading cause of graft failure, and provides a natural barrier. Traditional bone grafts use human or animal bone. Since many people have religious and philosophical restrictions, a vegan alternative is the only option for these patients.
We have an in-house lab at Flossophy Dental Boutique that allows the dental implant surgeons to personally fabricate surgical guides so there is no 3rd party error. 3D printing also allows us to fabricate models from digitally designed smiles so patients can see their final smile before any surgery starts. 3D printing digital dentures can make treatment costs much more less then traditional denture fabrication methods.
ISQ magnetic resonance for implant integration
An ISQ indicator is used to determine the successful integration of the dental implant post with a touch-less wand. When patients have poor quality of bone, implants are torqued by hand to look for poor integration. If an implant is not quite healed, it will move and may failure due to this loading test. At Flossophy, we can ensure your dental implants will be secure without complications months after.
What to Expect from Your Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant procedure involves several treatment phases and can last multiple months. Flossophy Dental Boutique prides itself in its personal approach to how we treat our clients, but in general the procedure usually involve three phases.
Phase One: Exam
During phase one our dental implant specialists will decide if this procedure is right for you. We will have a thorough discussion of your health history and your treatment goals. We also perform a comprehensive examination of your gums and jawbone to determine if any additional procedures such as bone grafting or gum surgery is needed. If you and your dental implant specialists determine that this procedure is right for you, then we will proceed with scheduling you an appointment for the next phase in the process.
Phase Two: Surgically Inserting the Dental Implant
Dental implant surgery is usually an outpatient procedure, meaning you can go home the same day as the surgery. We start by preventing surgical discomfort either by applying local anesthesia or sedation. Our dental surgeons will then make a channel in the bone to place the implant. The implant is then placed and then one of two things can happen. Sometimes a cover is placed over the implant and the gums are stitched closed as the bone and gums fuse with the implant. We will then perform a second surgical incision when it is time to place the final crown or bridge. The other option our dentists have is placing a temporary abutment, crown, or denture on the implant at the time of the surgery. Healing may take several months as the implant is secured to the bone.
Phase Three: Placing a Crown or Denture
After the implant has had time to fuse with the bone and gums it is now time to apply the crown or bridge. This will involve a series of appointments to create the final restoration. Although this can vary from case to case it usually involves removing provisional restoration and taking impressions of your teeth. Our cutting-edge lab uses impressions to create accurate models of your teeth including the implant. After the models have been completed our experts will then craft a crown or denture that precisely fits your teeth and your bite. After it is ready we add your crown or denture to the implant.
All-On-X Dental Implant Procedure
Do you need a complete rework of your smile? Instead of replacing each tooth individually, our dental implant surgeons can place four or more implants on the top or bottom jaw as the main anchors. Our dentists will then attach dentures to these dental implants. The All-On-X procedure allows you to return back to normal, giving you a fixed option so you don’t have to take our dentures at night. The procedure uses your one existing dentures or new ones are made for you. You will never have to remove teeth again. If you do not like look of acrylic dentures, we can also look into replacing all the teeth with a all zirconia implant bridge. This is the closest to real teeth any one can get!
Our Overdenture Procedure
Overdentures are traditional dentures secured by dental implants. A removable overdenture rests comfortably on your gums and are secured to your implants by our dental implant surgeons. Sometimes a metal bar secured to the implants to allow for retention of the denture. Our cutting-edge digital design allows us to craft and place your overdentures so that they have a natural look today. Schedule a consultation and see how our experts can help improve your smile.
