Dental Implants in Ypsilanti, MI
Dental implants are considered by most dentists to be the longest lasting, most durable, and most attractive replacements for missing teeth. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry has stated that implants are the “next best thing to healthy, natural teeth.” Rooted in your jaw, implants are unlikely to need replacement in your lifetime!
The implant itself looks like a small screw, and it functions as the foundation for beautiful dental restorations. Implants securely support restorations from single crowns, to bridges, to dentures. These restorations are generally made from ceramic or another biocompatible material, and are matched to your teeth so they blend right in.
Getting an implant does require an initial surgical procedure where the implant is carefully placed. Following this, you will wait a few months while the implant takes hold. Over time, the bone and tissue build up and anchor the implant in a process called ‘osseointegration.’ After the implant is integrated, the new crown can be placed.
