in Beverly Hills, MI
Losing a tooth can be extremely upsetting, especially if the gap that’s left behind is in a visible position in your mouth. A missing tooth can also cause you to experience trouble eating the foods you used to enjoy, impaired speech, and you may avoid smiling or laughing in front of other people.

The most popular and effective way of replacing a missing tooth is the range of dental implant services that are now available. We can use dental implants to replace single teeth, multiple adjacent teeth, and even entire arches of teeth.
Why does tooth loss occur?
Tooth loss can happen for several reasons such as severe decay, advanced gum disease or trauma. There are many restorative treatment options, and dentists will try their best to save a tooth and avoid an extraction.
What to expect during a dental implant procedure
A dental implant is a small titanium screw embedded in the jaw under a local anesthetic. This screw acts as an artificial root for a prosthetic tooth. As the gums and jawbone heal, the implant fuses with the surrounding bone, securing it in place.
The healing process typically takes up to three months. Your dentist will attach a healing cap to the implant to protect it during this time. Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, the dentist can attach a prosthetic tooth (crown) to it.
Because the implant heals in place, becoming a permanent fixture in your jawbone, dental implants provide the same natural look and feel as a real tooth.
As long as you continue to maintain a good oral hygiene routine, dental implants can last decades. If you would like to know more about the dental implant services we offer, contact us to book a consultation with a specialist.
