The Benefit of Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular dental restoration option designed to create a natural and healthy smile. Read the following information to find out what benefits you can expect after completing your dental implant procedure at Southfield Family Dental Center.

Natural-Looking ResultsDental implant model
When having a dental implant placed, you can count on a new tooth that looks lifelike and even healthier than your old tooth. Dental implants are made of durable porcelain and other materials custom-designed to create realistic replacements that match the patient’s exiting teeth. Everyone will notice your radiant new smile, not dental work.

Minimal Risk
Other restorative dental techniques can compromise the health of your surrounding teeth. Dental implants are fused directly into the jaw bone; bridgework, on the other hand, relies on the strength of the neighboring teeth to anchor the oral appliance. Dentures and bridgework do nothing to prevent gum recession, tooth shifting, and bone loss, unlike dental implants. Dental implants are safe, secure, and protect the oral health of your entire mouth.

Custom Treatment
Some dental patients are concerned that restoration treatments aren’t flexible enough for their situations. During your consultation appointment, you’ll discover many treatment options available to address your unique situation. If you have one or several damaged or missing teeth, your expert dentist will work to create a custom treatment plan that maximizes the cosmetic and health benefits of your procedure.

Improved Dental Function
Most importantly, dental implants provide you with the benefit of improved chewing, speaking, and comfort. Missing teeth—or even other forms of restoration such as dentures—can make speaking and eating both uncomfortable and difficult. Dental implants act just like natural teeth and can even be brushed as normal.

Several of our professional dentists with Southfield Family Dental Center have been locally recognized for their professionalism and quality dental care. Schedule an appointment with cosmetic and general dentists Dr. Levi and Dr. Krivichkin to begin discussing your dental implant treatment today. Call us at (248) 327-0313.
