Dental Implants in Grand Rapids, Kentwood, East Grand Rapids, MI
In East Grand Rapids dentistry, Dental implants are an option to replace missing teeth. In this procedure, a small titanium shaft is surgically implanted into the bone and allowed to set. 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 the implant is firmly set in the mouth, Dr. Zwier then works to attach the replacement tooth onto the top of the shaft.
How do Teeth Implants Work in East Grand Rapids?
In East Grand Rapids, teeth implants have benefits over other alternatives.This permanent solution has the advantages over bridge work in that it does not stress the surrounding teeth for support, and, should the tooth wear out, another can simply be replaced on the shaft. Dental Implants can also be used as support as part of an implant bridge. This is an alternative to partial dentures, and has several advantages. First, there is no adjustment period to acclimatize the patient who, once the work is done, only feels teeth, not metal supports intruding into the mouth. Second, this slows the bone loss occasioned by missing teeth. Third, there is no discomfort or difficulty in eating. And, best of all, of course, they don’t have to be taken out all the time. East Grand Rapids patients can experience many dental benefits with teeth implants.
