Troy, MI (PRWEB) July 30, 2015
Keith Kelley, DDS, now offers OCO Biomedical dental implants for individuals who are suffering the consequences of missing teeth, but do not want to go through the lengthy process required by traditional tooth replacement methods. As a leading dentist in Troy, MI, Dr. Kelley seeks to provide state-of-the-art procedures, such as these one stage implants, to provide his patients with the most beneficial and cost-effective solutions.
The loss of a tooth can be traumatic, whether it is knocked out in an accident or removed due to decay. On the surface, a person usually notices the immediate effects, that make chewing and oral hygiene difficult and alter the appearance of the smile. Even once the gums have healed, the damage is not done. The jawbone requires the stimulation provided by the tooth root, and without it, density is lost and the facial structure shifts and shrinks. Other teeth often fall out when this happens, hastening the process. Dentures and bridges sit on top of the gums, so they are unable to prevent bone loss.
Typically, a dentist in Troy, MI, will recommend dental implants rather than dentures because they provide a replacement root that provides the stimulation the jaw needs. The titanium post of the implant is surgically placed deep in the jaw, and over the next few months, it heals and fuses with the bone in a process known as osseointegration. A temporary crown provides the appearance of a natural tooth until the permanent crown can be affixed, and this can be removed for oral hygiene purposes.
OCO Biomedical dental implants differ from regular implants in several ways. The tip is designed to lock into the bone for immediate stabilization, optimal surface treatment, and materials provide strength and stimulate bone growth. These features allow a permanent crown to be attached right away, so there is no lengthy waiting period or extensive healing time. A patient in Troy, MI, can leave the dentist appointment with a new tooth. Anyone with one or more missing teeth may be a candidate for this procedure.
