Dental Implants West Bloomfield MI

What Are Dental Implants?

A natural tooth consists of a root and a crown. If you compare natural teeth to implant-supported replacement teeth, you’ll see they have the same basic parts. Both have a crown (the visible part used to chew food). Both have a root that holds the tooth securely under the gum and is anchored into the jaw. The difference is that the implant is made of titanium – the same time-tested material used by surgeons for artificial joints. When you lose a tooth, you lose both the root and the crown. To replace the tooth, the surgeon first replaces the root with a small dental implant.

For more information about Dental Implants or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Cohen, call our office in West Bloomfield, MI at Lakes Oral Surgery Phone Number 248-669-6600 or Request an Appointment online.

Time is allowed for bone to heal and grow around the dental implant. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth.  A support post (abutment) is then placed on the implant and a new replacement tooth (crown) is placed on top of the abutment. In many cases a temporary replacement tooth can be attached to the implant immediately after it is placed. If all of your teeth are missing, a variety of treatment options are available to support the replacement teeth.

“Don’t be afraid to Smile.”

For years I’d felt like a part of my body was missing — because my teeth were. My dentist told me that dental implants would make me feel and look a lot better. OK, I said. Now, I’m thrilled. I can smile, eat anything, and enjoy a good laugh with my friends.

Surgical Advances

Using the most recent advances in dental implant technology, Dr. Cohen is able to place single stage implants. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implant can be placed at the same time as the tooth extraction – further minimizing your number of surgical procedures.

Dental implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist. Dr. Cohen performs the actual implant surgery, initial tooth extractions, and bone grafting if necessary.  The restorative dentist (your dentist) fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.

All Staff has always, and continues to be very pleasant, friendly and helpful with each visit! I just wish the office would be closer to home. 🙂 But it's worth the drive! Everyone is so nice and it puts me at ease for the treatment provided. I'm able to make appointments when needed on my busy schedule. There is very little wait time in the office, even when I arrive early they are able to fit me in earlier than my scheduled time and I'm impressed with the followup call after each appointment. I would highly recommend them. GREAT JOB!

I had 2 dental implants, one of which had to be redone, so I saw Dr. Cohen and his staff for several visits over a 2 year period. Everyone was friendly and professional and I knew I was in good hands. I never felt like I was being rushed, or that I was not being well cared for. I would recommend this office to anyone needing oral surgery of any kind. Thank you!

I was surprized because I left with no pain - swelling was down immediately and bleeding was very minimal. I took one low dose Ibuprofen ahead of the surgical procedure and never needed additional pain medication, which was appreciated. - understanding in my case there were no complications during the surgery procedure.
