Our Custom Dental Implant Solutions
If you’re missing a tooth, we’ll use a single dental implant to replace it. This consists of a titanium implant fixture, a connecting piece called an abutment, and a natural-looking porcelain crown.
For patients who are missing multiple teeth that are adjacent to each other, Dr. Klym will use a dental bridge to replace them. bridges can be secured with implants instead of relying on surrounding teeth for support.
We can even replace one or both arches of your teeth. Dr. Klym will use four to six dental implants to secure an entire row of restorations. Full arch replacements are a long-lasting, secure alternative to dentures.

Process Stands Out

Here at our Petoskey office, we’ll provide you with high-quality implants by using the most advanced technology. From digital X-rays to placing your implants, these devices allow Dr. Klym to provide you with accurate and precise results.
He uses his CBCT “cone-beam” scanner to get clear, 3D images of your entire jaw. This will help him determine where to place your implants and what your end results will look like.
During the procedure, a high-tech Wand® will be used to provide you with anesthesia. This eliminates the need for painful needles and reduces excessive numbness in the areas surrounding your teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will insurance cover dental implants?
Dental implants are considered a cosmetic procedure with some restorative purposes as well and some providers cover up to half of the costs. You’ll want to check with your provider prior to your appointment for a better understanding of your specific coverage.
If you have any questions that we can answer, don’t hesitate to contact our office by calling (231) 774-6819 and we’ll get back to you immediately.
Is the dental implant procedure painful?
The majority of patients report feeling discomfort, not pain. During the surgery, you’ll be under local anesthesia and won’t feel a thing. If you suffer from dental phobia or anxiety, we also offer IV sedation to ensure you’re free of stress.
We’ll be sure to closely monitor you throughout the procedure to ensure you’re pain-free and comfortable. Following the operation, you may experience some discomfort, but it can be easily managed with over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen and a cold compress to help with any swelling.
