When it comes to replacing one or more missing teeth, dental implants offer aesthetically pleasing, long-term results that other treatments can’t match.
If you live in the greater St. Joseph or Kalamazoo, Michigan, areas and would like to learn whether dental implants are the best choice for you, please call Modern Dentistry Associates at 269-264-4388 to schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Sven Erickson. Dr. Erickson has extensive experience in dental restoration with implants and other solutions, and he can recommend the right treatment for your unique needs.
Dental implants are designed to look, feel and function like your natural teeth. Unlike dental bridges and dentures, dental implants are securely anchored in your jaw and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Dental implants allow your jawbone to grow around the “implant” components, which act as replacement roots for the dental crowns. This provides durability for the crowns, which are artificial teeth that are custom-made from dental-grade porcelain. The placement of dental implants also helps prevent further damage to your jaw and adjacent teeth.
Dental implants may be used to replace individual missing teeth or as part of treatments that utilize multiple dental procedures, such as smile makeovers and full mouth reconstruction.
If you would like to learn more about dental implants or other cosmetic dentistry or restorative dentistry procedures, please contact Modern Dentistry Associates today. Dr. Erickson welcomes clients from the St. Joseph, Niles and Kalamazoo, Michigan, areas and the greater South Bend, Indiana, area.
