Tooth Implant Dentistry for Royal Oak
Used to replace one tooth, or several, and to secure crowns and bridgework or dentures, dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed in your jaw. The most common type of implant is the Endosteal, or “in the bone”, which refers to screws, cylinders, or blades that are surgically implanted into the bone.
The second type of implant is the Subperiosteal, or “on the bone.” In this instance, if you’re unable to use conventional dentures due to bone loss, the prosthesis is placed on top of your jaw, held in place by posts that protrude through your gums to hold the framework in place.

There is no need to transfer records to another office, or find a new specialist, because all that work can be done right here at our Royal Oak dentist office!
“The Team You Trust” | At Gustafson Morningstar, we take the time to build a professional relationship based on trust, exceptional care, and compassion. When you get your implants placed by your Royal Oak dentist at Gustafson, you can feel assured that you’re being treated by a dentist that genuinely cares about you, and has the professional experience, talent, and skill to place your implant properly.
Why Choose Implants Over Other Restorations?
Improved speech | If your existing dentures are loose, they can hinder your speaking. You sometimes sound like you’re mumbling, or even slurring your words. When your dentures fit, this speech issue is resolved.
Improved eating | Dentures that don’t fit correctly can make chewing difficult and, lead to much discomfort. With dental implants, you can eat what you want, when you want, without the difficulty and discomfort you may otherwise experience.
Durable | With care, implants can last a lifetime. They are naturally durable and, at minimum, should last you many years.
So, how does it work?
