Will I Ever Smile Again? Why you will want dental implants.

Dental ImplantsAre you afraid to smile because of yellow, decayed teeth or spaces where your teeth used to be? It’s time to consider dental implants, and regain that smile you used to have. It’s time to stop in for a consultation with Dr. Thomas Faiver, your family dentist in East Lansing, Michigan. Dr. Faiver is an expert in dental implants, and he can show you a permanent way to give you back your smile.

Dental implants are crafted out of titanium, a metal, gentle with soft tissue and bone, but also strong and supportive. A titanium post is implanted in your jaw and functions as a replacement “root” of the original tooth. The post is then capped with a beautiful porcelain and metal crown. The newly placed implant will look and feel as strong as the tooth it replaces. You may even like it better than the original.

There are many benefits to placing dental implants such as:

  • Improved ability to chew food, allowing for better digestion, which can increase overall health and well-being
  • Improved, more confident speech, knowing that your teeth will stay in place, unlike removable partials and dentures, which sometimes shift around
  • Improved convenience of not having to remove a partial or denture
  • A much more permanent solution to tooth loss that could last for your lifetime

Most patients who have had dental implants can tell you the greatest advantage of implants is how beautiful and natural they look. Many of these same patients have tried removable partials and dentures, only to find that they are not even close to natural teeth. Patients are often happier with the implanted “tooth” than with the original tooth.

Another important fact about implants is that they help to maintain the firm line of your jawbone, making you look years younger. You will experience a more beautiful and natural smile than you ever thought possible.

If you are considering implants, you owe it to yourself to seek out the very best, so don’t delay. Call and make a consultation appointment with Dr. Thomas Faiver, your dentist in East Lansing, Michigan and find out more about dental implants, a beautiful solution for a new smile.
