At least three million Americans have replaced a missing tooth with a dental implant and that number grows each year. At Stewart & Hull Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Comstock Park, we are providers of these dental marvels.
A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically implanted into your jaw. An artificial tooth fits on top of the post.
One of the things that make dental implants so popular is that they blend in so easily with the patient’s remaining teeth. They look and function like natural teeth and are an excellent, long-term solution.
Another benefit of dental implants is that they prevent bone recession, which is common in people who have lost teeth. The titanium post goes where the tooth root used to be, and integrates with the bone.
For patients missing all of their teeth, implants can be used to anchor dentures or partials, providing a much firmer, more secure fit. Many patients report newfound confidence in themselves, after years of embarrassment caused by missing teeth.
Dental implants are one of the biggest advances in dentistry. To find out more, contact Stewart & Hull Aesthetic & General Dentistry in Comstock Park. We also provide family and cosmetic dentistry, and treat conditions suchas sleep apnea. Schedule an appointment with us today+
