Dental Implants in Lansing
Dental implants are a permanent option for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants function just like your natural teeth would; by allowing you to enjoy the foods you love, with the added benefit of natural esthetics.
The dental implant procedure generally involves two phases:
The first stage of the dental implant procedure involves placing what’s known as an anchor, directly into the bone in the area where the natural tooth once was. The anchor is made from surgical grade titanium, which is safe for us in everyone, including people with metal allergies as titanium is hypoallergenic. The exact placement of the dental implant is carefully considered after an extensive evaluation of how your teeth bite together and function.
Once the anchor is in place, the second phase of the procedure begins. A natural looking porcelain crown is placed on the anchor. The size, shape, and color of the crown are custom matched to your existing teeth. After a short healing phase, you are welcome to resume the normal eating habits you were once used to.
