Dental implants have transformed dentistry and our Holland family dentist at Lakeside Smiles offers you a permanent solution to replace missing teeth with implanted teeth that look and feel like your own natural teeth. Most patients find they have a better feel, better look, and a more stable solution to their tooth loss once they undergo the dental implant restoration multi-step process. Our doctors educate all patients on the entire process, making you well aware that dental implants are much more than a cosmetic option. Replacing a lost tooth is necessary to maintain overall health and function of your surrounding teeth. It helps to prevent tooth movement and loss of bone from the jaw in that area.

Whether teeth are missing or extracted, one or many, it is now a feasible option to replace them with dental implant restoration. An implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain and looks remarkably like your natural tooth. One part is the titanium implant body that replaces the missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of the implant. Our Holland family dentist handles your implants with great skill, placing them within the jawbone with detailed accuracy. Implants may also be used to anchor dentures that tend to shift when you chew or talk. For patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so that you have a more natural-looking smile.

Dental implant surgery is done under local anesthesia and one implant, without any complications, will take a little over an hour. Done at our Lakeside Smiles office, most patients say the procedure is less painful than having a tooth pulled. Many patients have very mild soreness or swelling, easily treated with over the counter medicines, and most patients can return to work the next day. Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth, usually titanium, and should last between 15 and 25 years. Dental implant surgery with our Holland family dentist is the only fixed alternative for a secure resolution to replace lost teeth. Whether it’s to replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth, secure a bridge, resolve a bite problem, or simply to guarantee a confident smile, you have the option here to do it with the knowledge and training that will put your mind at ease.

The best dental care begins with prevention. Dental plaque can build up between your teeth and cause tooth decay. Left untreated, that tooth decay will become a cavity. Our Holland cosmetic dentist will discuss the best strategies for staying on top of this at home. Proper brushing technique is essential, as is thorough flossing. Using dental rinses can be very helpful, too. Combining a smart at home plan goes hand in hand with regular dental checkups. Even the most diligent person can get plaque. Professional dental cleaning will find and eliminate that plaque. An exam and x-rays will ensure that you have no tooth decay that needs attention. And if you do, we’re at the ready to make it as comfortable and painless as possible.

If you need a filling, our Holland cosmetic dentist will numb the affected area and then remove the decayed part of the tooth. After ensuring that all of the decay is gone, the next step is to clean the area of any bacteria and debris. If you’re getting tooth-colored filings, those are applied in layers and are just a little more involved than a standard filling.

Choosing the right filling material is will be between our Holland cosmetic dentist and you Such factors as which tooth and the location of the filling will play into the decision as will your personal preferences regarding appearance. You can count on our Holland cosmetic dentist to assist you in making cavities a rarity, and making your fillings simple and easy on you when yo do get a cavity.
