Tooth Implant Surgery
in Beverly Hills, MI
We can lose a tooth for a variety of reasons including untreated dental pulp infection, advanced tooth decay, or a traumatic injury. Whatever the reason, the gaps in our smiles left behind by missing teeth can make us feel self-conscious, and we avoid professional and social situations where we must talk, smile or laugh in front of people.

There are several options for replacing missing teeth, restoring your self-esteem and improving your quality of life.
Replacing a missing tooth improves your smile, your ability to chew and speak, and maintains the health of your jawbone. The most popular and innovative method of replacing a missing tooth is tooth implant surgery.
What is tooth implant surgery?
Also known as dental implants, tooth implant surgery is the placement of a small titanium screw into the jawbone under local anesthetic. This screw mimics an artificial tooth root. Once the titanium screw is in place, it begins to fuse with the surrounding bone.
This process can take three to six months, but it can be quicker in some cases. Your dentist will fit a healing cap to protect the implant during this time. Once the implant has fused into the jawbone, it will be as secure as a natural tooth. At this stage, your dentist can attach a prosthetic tooth (crown) on top of the implant.
Tooth implant surgery allows for a replacement tooth that looks, feels, and functions just like a natural one. We will design your prosthetic tooth to match the shape and color of your natural teeth for a seamless restoration.
Caring for dental implants
Post-operative care is no more demanding than what you’re already doing to look after your natural teeth. Simply keep up your oral hygiene routine including regular dental cleanings and exams to help your dental implant last as long as possible.
