Dental Implants

Tooth loss affects millions of Americans. While traditional bridges and dentures are effective, dental implants are a superior option.

The titanium implants anchor restorations to the jaw, acting as artificial tooth roots. They provide excellent stability and functionality.

The Benefits of Dental Implants: Why You Should Consider Implant Dentistry

Even though traditional bridges and removable dentures are effective, there are many important benefits to supporting a restoration with dental implants, including:

Unmatched Stability

Dental implants function like tooth roots and offer incredible stability. That means your denture, bridge, or crown will not slip out of place while biting, chewing, or speaking.

Prevents Bone Loss

When natural teeth are missing, your jaw loses bone tissue. Dental implants are the only restorative dentistry option that can prevent this side-effect of tooth loss.

Enhanced Self-confidence

Patients with implant appliances don't just have better dental health. When you can chew and speak without worrying that your restorations will shift for slip, you can also experience greater confidence.

Dental Implants – Troy, Michigan

Dental implants are an ideal solution to replace missing teeth and restore a patient's smile. If you are considering dental implants, our Troy, Michigan implant dentistry professionals can help you explore your options.

Types of Dental Implants: Your Implant Dentistry Options

There is a variety of implant options available to meet your needs. Whether you are missing one tooth, a few teeth, or all of your teeth, our dentists can develop a treatment plan just for you. We can also coordinate treatment if a tooth needs to be extracted and replaced.

Traditional Dental Implants

Traditional dental implants are titanium posts surgically embedded into the jawbone. After a period of osseointegration (fusion of the implant to the bone tissue), the implants give your restorations stability that is virtually equal to that of natural teeth.

Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants have a smaller diameter than traditional implants. Mini dental implants can benefit patients who have suffered some bone atrophy, but want to avoid undergoing a bone graft in order to receive traditional implants.


ESTEEM DENTAL IMPLANTS are used to support a Prettau® Zirconia Bridge, a premium device that replaces an entire dental arch on the upper or lower jaw. As few as five of these special implants can support this restoration, which provides superior aesthetics, durability, and functionality.


Implant Restoration Options

Dental implants can be used to support all kinds of restorations and appliances, depending on how many teeth are missing.

Dental Crowns

dental crown and implant

If you're missing a single tooth, an implant-supported crown can replace the tooth from top to bottom. This solution can be more conservative and beneficial to your oral health than traditional restorations.

Dental Bridges

implant-supported bridge

Implant-supported bridges can benefit those missing two or more consecutive teeth. Traditional bridges require healthy adjacent teeth to be crowned in order to provide support. Implant bridges are self-sufficient.

Full and Partial Dentures

While traditional dentures can easily shift out of place and require frequent adjustment to accommodate for changes in the jaw, implant-supported dentures are far more stable and require far fewer adjustments.

"I Walked Out After Two Visits a New Man."

This is by far the absolute best dentistry experience that I have ever had! I believe I was seen by Dr. Wahlen. I went in to get two teeth extracted in which everyone knows getting root canals can be one of the most scariest and stressful things. The service was quick. The teeth were out and I was pain-free before I could even panic lol the staff was very kind & caring I would highly recommend this place.

The staff is incredibly detailed, professional, and caring. Shall we talk about Dr. Goldin? He’s an artist, a magician, and in my case a miracle worker. I walked into his office petrified of the dentist, horribly self conscious of my smile, and mentally a mess from previous dental work done elsewhere. I walked out after two sleepy visits a new man. I’ve smiled more the last year than I have in the past ten and I owe that all to Dr Goldin and his dream team! Thank you!

The Dental Implants Process: A Timeline for the Procedure

The dental implant procedure can vary depending on the type of implants used. Below is a general timeline for patients receiving traditional implants. The estimated treatment time spans several months:
Dental implants can be used to support all kinds of restorations and appliances depending on how many teeth are missing.

Initial Consultation

Dental implants can be used to support all kinds of restorations and appliances depending on how many teeth are missing.

Assessing Candidacy

During your first visit to our practice, we'll perform x-rays and examine the condition of your mouth. We will also discuss the risks and benefits of dental implants with you.

Oral Surgery

During oral surgery, your dentist will place the implants into the jawbone. Patients will be given post-op instructions to manage side effects and avoid complications.


Over the course of the next three to six months, the dental implants will fuse with the jawbone. This process (osseointegration) is essential for stability and long-term success.

The Abutment

Once your dentist confirms that the implant has fused to the jawbone, he will place an abutment onto the implant. These small devices connect your implant to your restoration. Placing the abutment requires a minor second surgery at our Troy, MI, practice.

Crafting the Restoration

The custom denture, bridge, or crown is crafted at an off-site dental lab. Skilled dental technicians work to ensure a realistic appearance and comfortable feel.

Placing the Restoration

With osseointegration completed and the final appliance ready, patients will return to our Troy, MI practice. Your dentist will attach the finished restoration.

The Final Results

With an implant-supported appliance, patients will notice an immediate difference. You can chew any foods you want, speak clearly, and feel good about the appearance of your smile for the long-term.
