Dr. John M. Harasin, cosmetic dentist in Saginaw, MI, recently introduced a new procedure that is helping local denture patients find a permanent solution to their missing teeth. Using dental implants, Dr. Harasin is able to provide Saginaw patients with a better alternative that lasts a lifetime, and also looks, feels, and performs like a natural tooth.
“Dental implants really are the latest advancement in restorative dentistry, and we're excited to now offer them to our local patients,” said Dr. Harasin, cosmetic and family dentist in Saginaw, MI. “This procedure really does have the ability to change the lives of denture wearers—giving them more freedom to eat whatever they like, have more confidence, and overall, not have to base their everyday life around their insufficient oral appliances.”
Dental implants are designed to simulate the natural structure of the tooth, which is why they have become such a successful alternative for restoring tooth function. To complete the implant procedure, Dr. Harasin first implants a small titanium stud in the patient's jawbone during a surgical procedure, which is then given several months to fuse to the bone and heal. Afterwards, a porcelain crown is attached to the titanium implant that has been custom designed by the patient and Dr. Harasin to be the exact size, shape, and shade that the patient desires.
Dental implants are an effective solution to permanently replace a single missing tooth or even entire top or bottom arches. With dental implants, former denture wearers can enjoy the appearance and convenience of near-natural teeth, since dental implants are cleaned just like natural teeth and do not place any dietary restrictions on the patient. Additionally, because the porcelain crowns are not susceptible to bacteria, patients do not have to worry about cavities and decay.
In addition to providing dental implants for patients with missing teeth, Dr. Harasin and his staff offer a variety of other dental treatments for patients of all ages. He is a well-known pediatric dentist in Saginaw, MI, and is highly experienced with caring for the dental needs of young patients. For children or adults who struggle with dental anxiety, he is also a certified sedation dentist in Saginaw, MI.
Dr. Harasin has been practicing in the Saginaw area for more than 25 years and is a graduate of the University Of Michigan School Of Dentistry. He is a member of the ADA, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and a former president and current member of the Saginaw County Dental Society.
