Find out the many benefits to choosing dental implants.
Are you dealing with one or more missing permanent teeth? Do you maintain good oral hygiene despite dealing with tooth loss? If you said yes to these questions then our Southgate, MI, dentist, Dr. Jason Cohen, may have just the answer you’ve been looking for to treat your tooth loss: dental implants.
What is a dental implant?
An implant looks like a small metal post or screw, which our Southgate general dentist will place into the jawbone. During the procedure, the dental implant is placed under the gumline, and over the course of several months, the bone will begin to meld together with the implant to form a strong foundation.
Why should I consider dental implants?
If you are missing one or more permanent teeth then there is no better time to consider getting dental implants then now. Implants are the closest you’ll come to having your natural teeth back. Plus, implants can replace one, several or even all of your teeth. Patients who want to replace multiple teeth but worry that dentures won’t be stable enough or provide them with the smile they want should strongly consider implant-supported dentures.
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement that is designed to last a lifetime if you are dedicated to the health and maintenance of your implant, as well as your oral health. Ideal candidates will be non-smoking adults who are otherwise healthy. Those dealing with cavities or gum disease will need to have these conditions treated and under control before your implant treatment can begin.
It’s also important to note that getting dental implants can take time. Unlike bridges or dentures, getting implants can take several months to complete. If you are dedicated to waiting for your implants then we know you’ll be happy with the results in the end.
