What are dental implants?

At Saigh Family Dental, we understand how losing a tooth can affect your self-confidence and your overall oral health. We are proud to offer dental implants in Iron River, Michigan, to replace your missing tooth and help you reach all of your smile goals. Dr. Saigh, our experienced dentist, have the training and education necessary to both surgically place the dental implant and create your new tooth that will be placed on top. During a dental implant treatment, we will:

  • Surgically place a titanium post into your jaw
  • Allow the gums to heal as the post fuses to the jawbone
  • Place a connector onto the post
  • Attach your dental restoration, usually a dental crown, bridge, or denture on the top

We work hard to help you understand each step of the treatment process, and our caring dental team will always take good care of you as you heal and enjoy your new smile.

What are mini dental implants?

Mini dental implants are less invasive and smaller than regular dental implants and are suggested for patients who do not have enough bone to support a full dental implant or who simply want more support for dentures. At our dental office, mini dental implants are often used to support partial dentures.

If you are interested in learning more about dental implants, we welcome you to call or visit our dental office. We are happy to schedule a time when you can sit down with Dr. Saigh and discuss all of your smile goals.
