Dental Implant Restorations in Howell, MI

What Are Implant Restorations?

Dental implant restorations involve constructing an artificial tooth or crown to replace a missing tooth. A dental implant restoration consists of three main parts: an implant fixture that’s fitted to the bone, an abutment, which is a connecting element, and the artificial tooth, which is fixed over the implant.

While implants are commonly used with dental crowns, they can also act as the foundation for other restoration dentistry, such as dentures and bridges.

At Bright Dentistry, we are committed to helping you achieve a bright smile. That’s why we offer a seamless implant restoration process. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Aminlari to get started.

The Implant Restoration Process

Initial Consultation

First, you will visit our Bright Dentistry office near Howell, MI, for an appointment with Dr. Aminlari. She will thoroughly assess your mouth to determine if you’re a good candidate for implant restorations. She will also evaluate any X-rays available to check the amount of bone in the site where the implant will be fitted. Once approved, you’ll be scheduled with a dentist to have the dental implant fitted.

Dental Implant Placement

Dental implant placement is done in a separate appointment with our specialist dentists. Sometimes, this can be done right after your consultation. The dentist will clean and apply local anesthesia to numb the mouth before beginning. They will then make a tiny incision in the gum to reveal the bone beneath. And upon inserting the implant, your dentist will place a healing cap over it and close the gum with some stitches.

Healing Process

After placing your implant, your Brighton dentist may recommend a few months of healing time to allow your jaw to fuse completely with the implant. Meanwhile, you may be provided with a temporary prosthetic tooth to place in the space of the missing tooth.

Crown Placement

Once your implant is secure, you’ll need to return to our office for crown placement. During this appointment, the dentist will open the gum of the implant and attach an abutment. The abutment penetrates the implant and forms a place to fit the custom-made crown.

Types of Tooth Extractions

View our services


This is an extraction performed on normal non-impacted teeth. Since these teeth are fully erupted and can be seen above the gum line, we don’t need to use surgical methods to gain access to the tooth.

A basic extraction may be needed because a tooth has become decayed, damaged, or needs to be removed in preparation for some other treatment. After loosening the tooth with a dental elevator, we remove it with forceps. This process is relatively fast and you will heal within a month.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth usually need to be removed because they are impacted. A lack of jaw space prevents them from fully erupting and this often causes problems such as pain, infection, damage to surrounding teeth, gum inflammation, difficulty cleaning the teeth, sinus problems, and cysts.

If any of these problems are occurring with your wisdom teeth, we recommend you have them removed. Impacted wisdom teeth will be removed surgically. After making an incision and sectioning the tooth, it is removed in the same way as a basic extraction. It will take 1 to 3 months to heal.
