Dental Implants in Lapeer, MI

Complete Your Smile

Missing teeth can negatively affect your health, your oral function, and your confidence, but you can restore all of these by receiving dental implants near Lapeer, MI. Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons & Dental Implant Center is proud to offer dental implant treatments to the entire Lapeer community. Dental implants are the ideal solution for missing teeth because of the many benefits they provide.

The innovative design of dental implants allows patients to regain full functionality of their teeth and complete confidence in their smile. Their unique three-part design, which includes the implant post, the abutment, and the prosthetic crown, prevents bone loss and encourages the overall health of your mouth. The implant post integrates with your jaw, keeping the bone stimulated and preventing any possible deterioration that can occur with missing teeth. The prosthetic crown is custom-designed to look like the rest of your teeth, so once it is attached to the implant via the abutment, it is indistinguishable from the rest of your teeth.

What happens during the dental implant procedure process?

The dental implant procedure process differs based on the patient. We work hard to ensure that each treatment plan is tailored to each patient’s specific needs, which means your treatment will not be the same as someone you know who might have had dental implants placed.

When you visit our office for your initial consultation, we will give you an exact idea of what your treatment will entail. During the first appointment, we will go over X-rays or take 3D scans, if necessary. Once we have reviewed all necessary materials, we can develop an individualized treatment plan. This will include your preferred sedation method. We will also provide you with pre-operative and post-operative instructions to ensure you understand how to care for yourself before and after treatment.

At your surgical appointment, we will answer any remaining questions before administering the anesthesia. In most cases, patients will rest in a sleep-like state through IV sedation and wake up when the procedure is over. Your surgeon will make an incision in the gum tissue, place the implant, and place sutures. After the procedure, you will wake up and be driven home by your prearranged driver. You will take the next few months to heal and once you are ready, your restorative dentist will place the final crown.

As oral and maxillofacial surgeons, we have been extensively trained to successfully place dental implants. Our team uses the latest implant techniques and technology available to provide patients with outstanding surgical care and achieve optimal results.

Calvin Reviews His Dental Implant Procedure

"My doctor — I've been with him for years — so I asked him . . . you know, he told me pretty much what I needed to do, and that was the bone implant. So, him being the guy he is, I asked him, "Give me the best place to go and the best person you know to do the work." So he suggested Dr. Lesneski here. I was terrified; you know, you hear so many things about, you know, drilling into your bone. But once I got here, they made me feel totally comfortable before the procedure. Dr. Lesneski did two dental implants; they gave me pain medication for after the procedure, but I didn't even take it. He called me, actually, after he did the procedure to check on me. That's rare, and it's a great experience, and I would pass it on for anybody who considers that procedure going forward or in the future to consider this place. It's really good."

"Right away, we were greeted with a very friendly attitude and a comfortable feeling. Dr. Frey is a very friendly, people person is what I would call him. He made my husband Bob feel very comfortable. He was totally patient, able to answer every question that he had. Overall, our experience was one of complete satisfaction and comfort with the treatment we received, from everyone starting from the office to Dr. Frey. I would give Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons a five-star rating because they deserve it."

"I had a wisdom tooth that I needed to have taken out—I put it off for a very long time—and I also needed an implant put in. I was scared. I do not like be sedated—until I met Dr. Lesneski. It went really well. I was sedated, my procedure felt like it took a minute, even though I'm sure it took a lot longer, and I went home, recovered pretty fast, and everything went back to normal. I do like his office. His staff is very friendly. I really appreciate the fact he walked me through the entire procedure and made me feel safe. I would highly recommend Greater Michigan Oral Surgeons, especially Dr. Lesneski."

"I had to get a bone graft and an implant. I had a spot in my tooth where the adult tooth wasn't there, and it was really uncomfortable because I had to wear a retainer every day. I was really nervous, but they made me feel very welcome. It was very easy; it was a two-process thing. I came in one day to get my bone graft and then the next time, I came in to get my implant, and it was all super easy and quick. The staff was really welcoming and nice and friendly. Dr. Lesneski was super nice and super welcoming and made me feel very comfortable. I feel super confident now, and it's nice not having the problem of not having the tooth."

"I had to have four teeth extracted, and I needed implants put in. My bridge was getting loose — I already had two bridges in on each side — and they were getting loose, and it was pretty traumatic because I didn't want to lose my teeth at all. So I was referred to Dr. Lesneski, and I'm on my way. They were phenomenal, kind, said it was normal to be nervous. I felt fine once I came in. I had a sinus lift, bone grafting, and then the implants are in. I was really nervous and scared that it would be really painful; I have felt no pain. Dr. Lesneski is great. To everybody I know, everyone I meet, any clients that I have at work, I always refer them to him. I think anyone that has dental issues should come here to the Gateway Center and see him and his staff."
