About Dental Implants

The false teeth will be dyed and shaped by our dentists to fit in with the patient's teeth for a natural look. For patients who are need to replace a single tooth or several teeth, dental implants at DentalWorks - Great Lakes can be a wonderful, long-term choice.

"I have to say, my anxiety level was off the charts as soon as I pulled up. When I went in the back, I was absolutely shocked of the knowledge, compassion, kindness, & honesty!!! I mean who likes going to the dentist?! It took me a month to come in because I was nervous to hear the same ole song & dance again, either your tooth gets pulled or you pay up!!! Due to my surprise, this office has one of the most genuine professional staff as a whole that I have ever met period!! I was soo upset I was crying, & i would never have guessed the quality of compassion, & understanding for how you actually feel is just beyond words!!!!

"I found Dr. Habashi at Dental Works Willoughby through my insurance company. I had a number of procedures to get through and I also have a high level of Dental anxiety. Suffice it to say I was not looking forward to using a dentist I didn't know. Dr Habashi and his staff were so much more than I hoped for. Not only did they show kindness and compassion but Dr Habashi talked me patiently through my options and educated me through things I didn't understand. I felt included in the decision making process and was able to decide, with Dr Habashi's advice, what was best for me. I'm very nervous about dental procedures in general. I've had Dentist that have made me feel embarrassed about this. No one at Dr Habashi's office made me feel that way. They understood that this was very real to me and no one told me to "just relax". (I hate that! Don't you think if I could I would!!) rather they checked in with me often asking if I needed a break or if there was anything they could do to make me feel more comfortable. "We" the patients pay a lot for our Dental insurance, deductibles and portions of our procedures. This office understands that and truly treats their patients as valued customers who could take their business elsewhere. They are a patient centered practice that is truly hard to find. I'm so great full I found them and highly recommend Dr Habashi and the amazing staff at Dental Works Willoughby."- J.V. / Google / Apr 19, 2019
What to Expect
Before a dental implant is started, a full exam will be performed by our dentists to determine the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the individual is an acceptable candidate for dental implants, oral X-rays and impressions will assist our dentists to decide the ideal location for the dental implants in the jaw. The individual may be put under sedation and local anesthesia to relax the patient while our dentists put the titanium post into the jaw. In the next 3 - 6 months, the implant and bone will grow together while the bone heals and as soon as the dental implant is stable, the false tooth or teeth can be joined to the dental implant through a connector. Our dentists may alter the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and lasting fit.
Typical patients experience little or no discomfort following their dental implant procedure, however a few patients may experience short-term discomfort and soreness that may be treated using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To extend the use of dental implants, patients should start a good home dental care regimen that includes flossing, brushing, and mouthwash. Consistent appointments at DentalWorks - Great Lakes in Mentor, OH for dental cleanings and oral exams are also vital to caring for implants. Dental implants may last for a long time with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.
If dental implants are determined to be necessary for health, the patient's dental insurance policy may pay for at least part of the expenses. Although, elective dental implants are ordinarily not paid by insurance plans. At the patient's dental consultation, the office employees of DentalWorks - Great Lakes can determine their insurance coverage and talk about payment methods and financing available through our office.
Plan Your Procedure
If you are missing a single tooth, many teeth, or every tooth, dental implants can be an enduring treatment that feel and look natural. After dental implants, you do not need to think about false teeth moving, what to eat, or sticky denture glues, you can just grin and appreciate your sturdy new teeth. If you have lost teeth or you wear a bridge, crown, or dentures, ask our dentists at DentalWorks - Great Lakes about the advantages of dental implants.
