Learn more about dental implants from your East Lansing implants

Losing your teeth? Dental implants are the gold standard in the replacement of teeth. Dr. Thomas Faiver offers a full range of dental services, including dental implants to his patients in the East Lansing, MI area. Dental implants are critically important for some people with missing teeth. Here's why.

Jawbone Loss

Do you have bone loss in your jaw? Tooth loss can lead to a cascade of oral health problems, such as the loss of some of your jawbone. Jawbone is preserved through the pressure and stimulus of chewing. Dental implants help to prevent bone loss and stimulate bone growth. 

Shifting of Teeth

Are your teeth drifting out of place? Although your teeth feel as if they are set in the jawbone, they are capable of shifting out of place. Tooth loss causes the surrounding teeth to shift at an accelerated rate. This can lead to a collapse of bite support. Dental implants can prevent the surrounding teeth from shifting out of place. 

Difficulty Speaking

Dental implants fit, feel, and function like natural teeth. Tooth loss can make it difficult for people to pronounce certain words. Implants can improve your clarity of speech. With implants, you will feel more confident when you speak with people. 

Difficulty Chewing

Tooth loss can also make it difficult for people to chew food. With dental implants, you will experience a dramatic improvement in chewing ability. Dental implants will allow you to eat all the foods you love without hesitation.
