If you recently lost a permanent tooth, you’ll want to ask our Grandville dentists if you could benefit from dental implants.
A dental implant is a titanium rod inserted into your jaw that functions much like a natural tooth root to anchor a false tooth. To be a candidate for the dental implant procedure, you’ll need a strong immune system and healthy teeth, gum, and jawbone tissues.
During surgery, our dentists will insert the dental implant into your jaw. After the procedure, you’ll need to wait several months for the implant to successfully fuse to your jawbone in a process called osseointegration.
Once osseointegration has taken place, one of our dentist will place an abutment and dental implant crown on top of the implant to give you the appearance and function of a natural tooth. Dental implants are the most stable and economically far-sighted solution to the very real problem of missing teeth. Dental implant treatments not only make it easier for you to eat and talk, but they also can also help you smile with confidence.
Sarah Palmer DDS and Amy Harmon DDS are dedicated to helping patients restore smiles after tooth loss. If you are interested in learning about any of our dental treatments or if you are a candidate for our dental implant services, give us a call at (616) 534-0080.
