A Strong, Beautiful Choice – Mississippi Dental Implant Center If you’ve lost a tooth due to accident, injury, or disease, it’s important to replace it as soon as possible. Just a single missing tooth can pose a danger to your oral health. Remaining teeth may shift causing additional gaps where bacteria can flourish, promoting tooth decay and gum disease. Jawbone loss can also occur, increasing your risk of losing additional teeth. There are several good options to replace a tooth, but the most modern, long-term solution is a dental implant. Our dentist, Dr. Jon Germany, has been performing dental implants in Mississippi for years and continues to give patients the smile they deserve!
“I love the dental implants I received at Germany Dental. They look and feel like my real teeth!” – Bob S. from Brandon, MS
Dental Implant Options
Dental implants are simply the best solution for a single missing tooth. We simply insert a medical-grade titanium dental implant into the jawbone in the space where the missing tooth was to serve as the root for your new tooth. We attach a small post, called an abutment, to the implant. Then we cement the replacement tooth on top. An implant will look and function like a natural tooth.
When several teeth are missing, we can use dental implants in conjunction with a bridge to offer a strong, permanent and natural-feeling solution. Several teeth can be replaced with the use of only two implants. We insert the medical-grade titanium implants are into the jawbone where they will fuse with the bone. We anchor a bridge to the implants, which are strong enough to support several teeth. This is less expensive than using a single implant for each missing tooth. This solution is permanent and looks, feels and functions like natural teeth.
Why Should You Choose Dental Implants?
A strong, beautiful option, dental implants look and feel natural while helping to restore optimum oral health. A permanent solution designed to blend seamlessly with your smile, dental implants have numerous benefits including:
Stops bone loss by replacing the tooth root
Does not require the support of adjacent teeth as with a bridge
There is no increased sensitivity or decay of adjacent teeth as with bridges
Restores the ability to chew, increasing nutritious food options
Can be used to anchor dentures and partials to eliminate slipping
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime
Dental implants can address all of these problems. They can not only fill in the gaps and allow for normal chewing function, they also prevent bone loss. Made from medical-grade titanium, the implants will actually fuse with the jawbone, stabilizing and stimulating it to maintain its density.
