The skilled, experienced dentists at A Life Of Smiles have good news if you’re missing teeth while living in Michigan. Dental implants are excellent solutions, as they not only replace missing teeth, they do so while providing a strong, sturdy foundation that will enable the implants to last decades.

Our dentists will thoroughly examine you to determine if you are a sound candidate for dental implants. If you aren’t, we’ll discuss all of your treatment options and ensure you receive replacements that are appropriate for your specific needs.

If you live in Michigan and you’re considering dental implants, please call A Life Of Smiles today at (616) 458-0631 for more information.

Can I Get Dental Implants?

After answering all of your dental implant questions, our dentists will explain everything there is to know about the procedure and ensure that you can safely receive implants.

There are a number of factors to consider when deciding whether you are a sound candidate for dental implants, but the most important are:

Health: Any surgery comes with risk, and the most prominent risk is usually infection. A healthy patient with no active infections is a much safer bet for surgery, which is why we insist all of our patients demonstrate sound health before they receive dental implants.
Bone density: Because dental implants are set deep within your jawbone, it’s crucial that you have an appropriate level of bone density in your jaw. Without that density, your jaw cannot support the implants. If you do lack the proper density, bone grafts may be an option.
Smoking: The best dental implant candidates do not smoke. Smoking inhibits healing and may increase the chance that the implant will fail to take.
Healthy gums: Our dentists will closely examine your gums to ensure you don’t have periodontal disease. A healthy set of gums is important for supporting dental implants.

You must also be committed to caring for your dental implants; this entails providing them with the same level of oral hygiene that you should practice every day anyway. Our dentists will explain what you can expect after your procedure.

If you live in Michigan and you think dental implants might be right for you, please contact A Life of Smiles today.
