Let's take a closer look at dental implants...
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically embedded into the jawbone. Once they have completely fused with the bone tissue, implants can support a crown, bridge, or denture with a level of stability comparable to natural tooth roots. Prices start at $4,500. We accept financing through LendingClub® and CareCredit® to help keep treatment as affordable as possible.
Implants Can Change Your Life
All-on-4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 is another implant dentistry option we offer to patients in Portage, Kalamazoo, MI, and beyond. Normally, six or more implants are required to support a full set of dentures. With All-on-4, a full set of dentures can be supported on just four implants without any compromise in effectiveness or stability. If patients require an extraction as part of the implant process, we can perform an extraction and place implants during the same visit.
A Restored Smile On Just Four Dental Implants
Full and partial dentures are an excellent option for people who are missing most or all of their teeth. These false teeth restore the ability to bite, chew, speak, and smile. Whether you get traditional dentures or an appliance supported by implants, we will strive to craft a custom appliance that looks natural and fits comfortably.
A traditional bridge consists of one or several false teeth supported by dental crowns or dental implants. With a bridge in place, your smile is once again complete, and you can experience the restored ability to bite, chew, and speak.
"I had cosmetic procedures on upper and lower front teeth and could not be happier. Dr. Sharp does excellent work, can't even tell they are not my real teeth." Kathleen Yeckley
Dental crowns are caps that fit over a compromised tooth. They're an excellent option for treating many different dental needs. Thanks to CEREC® technology, we can create custom tooth-colored restorations at our office in a single visit. CEREC means there is no need to wait for an off-site dental lab to complete a restorative procedure.
Scaling and Root Planing
Plaque and tartar can cause gum disease and increase your risk of developing cavities. Scaling and root planing remove plaque and tartar built up along and beneath the gumline to treat gum disease and prevent decay.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
TMJ is a condition caused by inflamed jaw joints. This is often due to dental misalignment that forces your jaw joints to overcompensate. Our dentists can diagnose and treat TMJ disorders (TMD) in order to relieve pain and improve your quality of life.
Common TMD Symptoms
- Jaw pain
- Clicking of the jaw
- Facial pain
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Similar to a smile makeover, a full mouth reconstruction combines multiple restorative dentistry options to address complicated dental issues. Each full mouth reconstruction is customized to the patient, allowing our dentists to address each person's unique needs and promote long-term oral health.
