Teeth can be lost for many reasons including gum disease, decay, root canal failure and excessive wear and tear. The loss of missing teeth can have serious consequences on a patient’s appearance, health and ability to perform normal functions. Even the loss of a single tooth can result in many repercussions. Some common effects of tooth loss include:
Change in jaw structure
Shifting teeth caused by gaps left by the missing teeth
Change in the contour of the face, resulting in an older, sunken appearance
Difficulty chewing and biting certain foods, including hard fruits and vegetables
Poor self-esteem and lack of confidence during social and professional situations
When teeth are lost, it can take a toll on your overall well-being and appearance.  However, our dentist in Ann Arbor is available to help you regain your smile with dental implants. That availability of dental implants allows you to restore your smile through the replacement of missing teeth.
Regain Your Smile, Regain Your Confidence
Dental implants, used to replace one tooth or multiple teeth, are root substitutes that are securely placed to simulate the root of a pre-existing tooth. Implants are designed to replicate your natural teeth while restoring function and preventing further decay, dental diseases and bone loss. With so many benefits, dental implants available in Ann Arbor at our dental office have become the clear treatment of choice for patients missing one, a few, or all of their teeth. Advantages of Dental Implants include:
Improved Appearance Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth—so natural looking no one will notice you have undergone dental restoration.
  • Durability Dental implants rival the strength and function of natural teeth. With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
  • Tooth-Saving Implants can support themselves and won't alter or impact healthy, neighboring teeth. By filling in the space of a missing tooth, implants protect the remaining teeth from unwanted shifting.
  • Comfort Compared to traditional, removable dentures, secure dental implants are secure and comfortable.
  • Renewed Self-Confidence As a result of preserved bone, improved appearance, comfort, health and function, patients can once again smile, eat and speak with confidence.
  • Retains Jaw Bone and Gum Tissue Implants help to avoid the anticipated destruction and loss of these tissues when a tooth or several teeth are removed.
Dental implants are the safest, most accurate type of procedure conducted to replace a missing tooth. In fact, research has shown that this restoration procedure has a 98% success rate.  Regaining your smile is possible, and if you have missing teeth, avoid serious repercussions and talk to Dr. Craig Blogin, our dentist in Ann Arbor, MI, about dental implants today.
