Find out if your smile could benefit from this popular tooth replacement.
Are you an adult who is missing at least one permanent tooth? If you said “yes” the good news is that our East Lansing dentist Dr. Thomas Faiver can help. It’s certainly comforting to know that there are many ways to replace your missing tooth and that during your consultation we will discuss your needs, lifestyle and budget to find out the best option. For many of our adult patients, dental implants tend to be a great fit for replacing missing teeth.
What is a dental implant?
The implant itself is a small tapered titanium post. This post replaces the roots of the teeth. In order to do this our East Lansing, MI, implant dentist will need to place the implant into the jawbone so that it can provide the bone with the stimulation it needs to stay healthy and strong. Once the implant is placed the bone and implant will fuse together, providing a long-lasting and incredibly dependable foundation from which to hold a false tooth or even a full set of false teeth.
Who can benefit from dental implants?
Most adults who are dealing with tooth loss are good candidates for dental implants. Of course, there are several factors that could influence your candidacy. A good candidate for dental implants is,
An adult: children and teens aren’t usually good candidates because their jaws are still developing
Good oral health: if you have active decay or gum disease these problems may need to be treated before you can get implants
