Dental Implants SmileAdvertisements for dental implants are everywhere now – on television, in magazines, even on billboards. There’s a good reason why they’re getting so much attention; they are the only tooth restoration that’s designed to be permanent and require no adjustments or removal to care for them. Stannard & Studt & Wolf Dentistry in Waterford, MI, is proud to offer dental implants at their practice. They explain the benefits in this post.

 

Why are dental implants so popular?

There are several reasons why dental implants are quickly becoming the preferred method for replacing missing teeth for both patients and dentists alike. The first is their stability; with a tiny titanium post that your Waterford dentist implants in the jawbone, they will not shift out of place like dentures or simply hide a gap from view. Furthermore, they’re low maintenance. They do not need to be removed for cleaning or replaced every few years—they can simply be brushed and flossed just like your normal teeth. Proper care can mean that your dental implants will remain stable for several decades, even a lifetime.

 

Are dental implants right for me?

The only way to know for sure if dental implants will work for you is by scheduling a consultation with one of our dentists at Stannard & Studt & Wolf Dentistry in Waterford, MI. However, you should know that there are certain conditions and issues that may need to be addressed first. For example, good bone density is essential, as is healthy gum tissue. If these issues arise, you may need to undergo treatment for your conditions before implant treatment can begin. Likewise, it's important to discuss your medical history with our staff, as we want to ensure your safety and comfort during and after your procedure.
