Three Signs You Need Dental Implants

Ann Arbor Dentist

Anyone missing a tooth, or several teeth, is a strong candidate for the dental implant procedure. Dental implants offer a permanent solution to the problem of missing teeth by providing structural support for the entire mouth. Most importantly, dental implants will help you chew your food normally, regain lost confidence, and live a healthier life. Request an appointment with one of our dental implant dentists in Ann Arbor, MI today!

Three Reasons to Get Dental Implants:

  • You are missing one or more teeth
  • You want to avoid wearing dentures
  • You’re a candidate for a dental bridge

You are Missing One or More Teeth

You should consider replacing a tooth soon after it has been lost. This will prevent bone loss or the shifting of teeth or bite imbalance. Our dental implant dentists will be able to help you explore your options during your next appointment.

Dental implants can last a lifetime with proper care and can be created to match your other teeth. That way, your smile will look and feel natural. Ask our dentists if you’re a candidate for the dental implant procedure.

You Want to Avoid Wearing Dentures

A tooth implant is much more convenient and requires far less maintenance than a partial denture, which must be removed for cleaning and maintenance. You also have to worry about keeping your partial denture submerged in water or denture cleanser any time you take it out of your mouth, which is a hassle.

Relieve yourself of the burden of dentures. Dental implants provide you with the freedom you need to live your life without the hassles of not being able to eat what you want.

You’re a Candidate for a Dental Bridge

Dental implants are generally preferred by our dentists over dental bridges because they will last longer and give your teeth a more natural appearance. In addition, they also function in the same way as natural teeth. Dental bridges are not anchored to the gums. Therefore, they are not as sturdy as dental implants.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Dental implants will allow you to eat, smile, and talk to your heart's content — while giving you a higher quality of life with your restored and healthy mouth. A tooth implant can even help you look younger by replacing the missing teeth in your smile!

Don’t wait any longer! If you have missing teeth and want to regain the quality of life you miss, request an appointment with us to talk about dental implants.

Candidates for Dental Implants

You may be a candidate for dental implants if you have enough bone density in your jaw. That way, the tooth implant will have enough support. You’ll also need to have a healthy immune system to undergo the dental implant process.

Even if you’re not the “perfect” candidate for dental implants, we still recommend scheduling an appointment with us. One of our dentists will walk you through your tooth replacement options so you’ll be able to smile with confidence in no time!
