At we make sure our patients are comfortable with their treatment.  3 Dental implants were placed to replace missing teeth on this patient of Dr.Antolak located in Shelby Twp. MI.  Bone grafts were placed to give adequate bone to place an implant in the location.  When teeth are removed the bone that holds the tooth in place rapidly shrinks up to the point that half of the thickness is lost within 6 months after a tooth is pulled.   It is critical to have an extraction done with the most precision especially if there is the possibility of having a dental implant placed.  This patient had 3 teeth removed without that insight about 5 years before visiting Dr. Antolak.  This left him in a difficult situation so a bone graft was performed to gain thickness of the implant site.  It took about 6 months for this area to heal and then 3 dental implants were placed which now hold 3 separate crowns which can be treated exactly like his own natural teeth.   He can chew what ever he likes and now he doesn’t have to worry about loosing more bone.  Most importantly he can eat comfortably and SMILE!!!  If you would like more information about dental implants or to see if you are a candidate for them please fill out our contact form so we can schedule a free consulation.  Our phone number is (586)247-3500 and we are located in Shelby Twp.
