West Branch, MI Dentist
At West Branch Family Dentistry, we offer dental implants as a long-term solution for tooth loss. They are also used to secure partial or complete dentures as well as support for dental bridges.
Dental implants are replacements for one or more teeth. They can support crowns and/or bridges. The implant, made of titanium, is placed into the jaw. Once fused with natural bone, the crown (false tooth) is secured on the implant. Implants have the same, dependable foundation as natural tooth roots. With placed implants, you will no longer have to experience discomfort in chewing, laughing or speaking.
Dental implants are the modern way to replace a lost or hopeless tooth.
Dental implants resemble natural teeth and can completely restore your smile and substantially improve your oral health. More advantages of dental implants include:
Improved oral health – Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health.
Improved speech – With a removable device like dentures or partials, the plates can slip easily causing you to slur or mumble your words. A dental implant allows you to speak without that worry.
Improved comfort – Dental implants remove the discomfort of removable dentures.
Easier to eat – Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat foods without pain.
Durability – With proper oral care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Our team will discuss tooth replacement options with you to help you make the most informed decision. We utilize modern technology to minimize any discomfort associated with receiving a dental implant. This allows for a very relaxed and comfortable experience, for even the most fearful patients.
There are many factors that our doctor will consider prior to recommending a dental implant, including: adequate bone support, healthy gum tissue, overall health, and sinus and nerve location. For more information, browse our links below or contact us.
