Dental implants are arguably the most popular restorative solution for patients who are missing one or multiple teeth. At Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center, we understand that patients want to find a permanent solution that will fully restore their oral function and smile. Dental implants are the most durable, long-term solution available, and they look virtually identical to natural teeth.
A dental implant is made up of three parts: a medical-grade titanium post, a connecting abutment, and a tooth crown. The dental implant post integrates with the jaw bone over time, providing patients with a sturdy, long-lasting foundation for their restoration. The crown connects to the implant post via the abutment and blends seamlessly with your healthy, natural teeth. The doctors at Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center are specialists with years of experience in dental implant placement. To learn more about tooth restoration with dental implants, we urge you to schedule a consultation appointment with one of our skilled surgeons.
Third molars, more commonly referred to as wisdom teeth, erupt between the ages of 17 and 25. Most teens and young adults are unaware of these extra molars until significant problems occur, such as impaction, tooth decay, gum disease, chronic pain, infection, and misalignment of healthy teeth. To determine if wisdom teeth may become a problem for you, Dr. Frey, Dr. Lesneski, or Dr. Kittle will perform a detailed oral exam and evaluate X-rays to establish an appropriate course of treatment. If removal is necessary, your oral surgeon will recommend an ideal time frame for extraction. In general, wisdom teeth are easier to remove at a younger age, due to shorter roots and softer bone, but can be successfully removed at any age.
At Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center, our doctors can help you prevent future oral health problems caused by wisdom teeth. We are trained in the administration of various forms of anesthesia for your comfort, and we are available to answer all of your questions so that you feel at ease when you proceed with treatment.

Tooth loss can occur for a multitude of reasons, including gum disease, tooth decay, aging, genetic problems, lack of dental care, and more. Replacing an entire arch of teeth with dental implants is your best option for restoring your oral function and appearance after tooth loss. Through a unique treatment known as full-arch restoration, Drs. Lesneski, Frey, and Kittle can restore an entire arch of teeth in as little as one surgical procedure. During the first visit, at least four dental implants are placed in the jaw as anchors for a beautiful new set of teeth, and your oral surgeon will attach a temporary prosthesis to the implants. Patients can begin enjoying the benefits of their new teeth right away! After a brief healing period, your custom-designed set of teeth is permanently affixed to the implants.
Full-arch restoration boasts an appealing treatment process that is preferred by many patients. If you have questions about the full-arch restoration procedure and want to learn more, please contact us today; our friendly office staff will be happy to schedule a consultation for you with one of our exceptional oral surgeons.
