Dental Implants

Dental Implants can replace missing teeth or be used to support a denture. Find out more about dental implants by booking an appointment with us at our Lansing office.

Why | Dental Implants

A dental implant is a metal post that we can surgically position into the jaw. The bone grows around it forming a tight connection, which additionally slows or stops the bone loss that occurs when the root of a natural tooth is missing. Once in place and after allowing the bone surrounding the implant time to heal, a replacement tooth is attached to the implant post. This is a permanent solution that doesn’t stress the surrounding teeth for support.

Implants can be used in a variety of ways. A single implant to replace a single missing tooth. Two implants can be used to support a bridge, which can replace multiple missing teeth. Implants can also be used to hold dentures in place to give them a more natural feel.

The Process | Dental Implants

A dental implant is an excellent tooth restoration for people who are missing one or more teeth. Dental implants have many benefits and can be a great option to restore function and confidence in your smile. If you are located in East Lansing or Lansing and dental implants are of interest to you, our staff can walk you through the different options.

A critical piece of implant dentistry is first deciding if someone is a good candidate for dental implants. For a successful implant, it is crucial to have healthy gum tissue and adequate bone for support. You must also be committed to excellent oral hygiene and regular dental visits as these are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.
