Say goodbye to tooth loss when you say yes to dental implants

We understand just how scary, frustrating or downright embarrassing it can be to deal with tooth loss as an adult; however, the goal of our Okemos, MI, dentist Dr. Eric Eby is to make sure that you have options when it comes to treating your tooth loss and regaining that beautiful smile. Wondering about dental implants? We’ve got you covered!

Whether you are just newly dealing with tooth loss or you are currently battling with your dentures, there are many reasons people turn to dental implants to get their smiles back. Sometimes people choose to get dentures or bridges because the treatment process is quick; however, these restorations don’t always feel or look like people often hope they will. If you find that you aren’t satisfied with these other tooth replacement options then it’s time to turn your attention to dental implants.

An implant is the closest thing you can get to a real tooth. This small metal post might not seem like it would function like a natural tooth but its sole purpose is to replace your missing tooth’s roots. Our Okemos, MI, restorative dentist will surgically place the implant into the jawbone.

So, what happens after the implant is placed into the jawbone? Well, now we let your body work its magic. What we mean by this is that the jawbone and tissue will begin to heal over the course of several months and when they do they will naturally fuse together with the implant. Since an implant is the only tooth replacement that melds with natural bone and tissue this will serve as a long-term and reliable foundation from which to support a false tooth. In fact, an implant could easily last several decades or the rest of your life with the proper care.

An implant can easily replace a single missing tooth or even support a dental bridge or dentures to replace all of your missing teeth. If you are a healthy individual who is looking for a reliable and lifelong solution to your tooth loss then you may just want to think about getting implants.
