Is your oral health suffering from damaged or lost teeth? If so, you are not alone. Thousands of people suffer from lost teeth each year, which is why our team here at Alberto A. Herrero, DDS in Ann Arbor, Michigan, is happy to give you some basic information on dental implants, so you can decide if they are right for you.

To begin, dental implants are a popular form of tooth restoration that can replace a missing tooth. Implants can also be used to support dentures, and for other reasons that your dentist, Dr. Herrero can explain. One benefit of dental implants is they can be matched to blend in with your surrounding teeth, so no one will notice or see your implant.

Dental implants are surgically placed inside your jaw. This is needed because the implant acts as the root of your tooth, so having a dental implant can keep your new tooth strong. If you go too long without a tooth, you can suffer from bone loss in your jaw, which is why by having the implant in place of the root, your jaw can stay healthy and strong.
