Are a tired of seeing a gap in your smile when you look in the mirror? Does a missing tooth cause a lisp or whistle when you speak? Are some foods difficult to eat now? Does it seem like the rest of your teeth are getting crooked? It is important to replace a missing tooth for all these reasons, and dental implants have become the preferred tooth replacement solution. Dr. Jill Seguin provides integrated tooth implant care for patients in the Hartland, Milford, Commerce Township, White Lake, and Highland, MI area.

A bit about implants

While a denture or bridge replaces the crown of a missing tooth, a dental implant replaces the root. This small cylinder is placed into the jawbone, where it becomes solidly fused. The implant provides vital stimulation that helps to preserve facial bone, while providing a sturdy base for an artificial tooth.

  • Most commonly, a dental implant is topped with a porcelain crown to replace a single missing tooth.
  • However, two implants can be used to anchor a dental bridge, without need to alter adjacent healthy teeth.
  • Full dental implants hold an entire arch of teeth securely.
  • In some cases, mini dental implants can be placed at the time teeth are extracted, with a special denture immediately attached.

The dental implants process in Highland, MI

Placing a dental implant is a delicate oral surgical procedure requiring precision planning using advanced diagnostic technologies, and sometimes computer guidance during surgery. Dr. Seguin works closely with a trusted oral surgeon to ensure you get the best possible care at this stage of the tooth implant process.

Once the implant is placed, Dr. Seguin monitors healing of soft and hard tissues. Depending on the location of the implant in your mouth, she may recommend a healing cap or temporary restoration during this period. When osseointegration (bone fusing with the implant) is adequate, it is time to complete your smile with a lustrous porcelain crown. Dr. Seguin takes impressions of your mouth and orders fabrication of the crown from a professional dental laboratory.

A dental implant looks beautifully natural and feels and functions like your own tooth. With good oral habits, it can last a lifetime.
