Bringing Your
Dream Smile to Life
Polzin & LaValley Family Dentistry | Dentist in Menominee, MI

Dental Implants

Dental implants do more than fill gaps in your smile — they preserve your dental health. Without a replacement tooth, your remaining teeth can shift, which can alter your facial structure, affect your ability to speak and eat, and destabilize your bite. Dental implants help restore function across your mouth while restoring aesthetics and preserving your natural jaw structure. When properly maintained, dental implants can provide a permanent tooth replacement option.

Since 1981, Polzin & LaValley Family Dentistry has offered patients kind, compassionate dental services. As our practice has grown and changed, our commitment to those in our care has remained the same. Helping you achieve your best smile is our number one priority, and we will work with you to make it happen. We proudly welcome individuals and families from Menominee, MI and surrounding communities into our practice.

Common Questions About Implants

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant consists of a titanium screw/post which is inserted into the jawbone to act as a replacement for a missing tooth root. This post provides the foundation for a replacement crown, bridge, and dentures. After the post is inserted, it slowly fuses to your jawbone. Once it is healed, the post is essentially a part of your jaw structure and helps your final restoration look, feel, and act as a natural tooth.

We provide implant placement and restoration services, so you can count on our team to be there for you through every phase of the process.

Are dental implants right for me?

If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants may be the perfect restoration option! To be a good candidate for implant restorations, you must have sufficient jaw bone structure. This ensures the implant post can properly adhere and provide your restoration with a stable foundation.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

By maintaining good oral hygiene habits, your dental implants can last a lifetime. There are many benefits to this restoration option. This includes:

  • Restoring function and strength to your smile
  • Maintaining your natural facial structure
  • Looks and feels like your natural teeth
  • Restores your ability to eat the foods you love
  • Improves dental health & self-confidence
  • Gives your smile a restored appearance

Bone Grafting

Losing your permanent teeth can result in your jawbone deteriorating. When this happens, it can reduce your ability to support dental implants. Bone grafting helps to restore the missing bone structure, which provides your implants with a stable foundation.

Implant Supported Overdentures

Dental implants can be used to retain or support removable full dentures. The implant-supported dentures have special attachments that snap onto the implants, creating better biting force and secure fit. This type of restoration can be used on both the upper and lower jaw. To receive this treatment, you must have sufficient jaw structure.
