Dental Implants Plymouth, MI - Get Your Strong Bite Back

According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, more than 3 million people have dental implants, and the number is increasing by 500,000 a year. The growth isn’t surprising, given the advantages implants offer over traditional tooth replacements like dental bridges and dentures. Compared to the alternatives, dental implants feel, look, and function more like your own teeth.

Dental Implants Offer Many Advantages

Dental implants are an increasingly popular choice for tooth replacement, thanks to their many advantages. They are:

  • Secure. Because they are embedded in your jaw, your dental implants will stay put. No worries about slippage!
  • Able to preserve surrounding teeth. We don’t need to modify your surrounding teeth for dental implants.
  • Better for your bones. Since they act as artificial tooth roots, dental implants stimulate your jaw much like your real roots. You’ll retain more jawbone density, and your bite will be strong again so you can eat all your favorite foods.
  • Durable. With proper care, your implants will likely last a lifetime.
  • Versatile. Dental implant can replace a single tooth or up to a whole mouthful of teeth. They can be restored with a dental crown, a dental bridge, or dentures.
  • Low maintenance. Regular brushing and flossing are all that’s needed to care for your implants, as well as regular checkups at our Plymouth, MI office.

How Do Dental Implants Work, Exactly?

A dental implant is a strong titanium screw. Once implanted in your jaw, the bone grows around it, creating a secure foundation for your chosen dental restoration. The implant functions as an artificial tooth root, supporting your restoration. We’ll use a dental crown to replace a single tooth, or a dental bridge or dentures to replace multiple teeth.

If you’re interested in dental implants, call Douglas A. Callow, DDS at 734-404-7336 or use our online form. We’re located in Plymouth, MI, a short drive from Westland Shopping Center.
