Dental Implant Restoration: The Next Best Thing to Natural Teeth

Are you missing one or more of your teeth? If so, our gentle dentists, Dr. Garner and Dr. Long, might suggest that you consider dental implants in Pearl, Mississippi.

As part of our mission here at Pearl River Dental, we want you to experience a healthy and confident smile — even if you’ve suffered some tooth loss. Dental implants offer many patients the ability to speak and eat with confidence, the way they once did.

Here’s how: Dental implants are permanent tooth replacements that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone to substitute as the tooth root. The dental implant post is a screw that’s made of titanium.

Next a connector piece called an abutment is built into — or placed on top of — the dental implant, connecting it to the replacement tooth. A crown is custom-made for the replacement tooth, and it matches the appearance of the rest of your teeth.

Dental implants are an effective solution for those who have lost teeth due to periodontal disease or traumatic injury. Implants serve as secure anchors for replacement teeth because they are inserted into the natural bone, which actually grows around the post, permanently holding it in place.

So, if you’re curious the ways your smile can be restored, dental implants are a strong and stable solution. Dental implants help you to achieve optimal oral health, function and appearance. They look like natural teeth, and they function like natural teeth.

Implants give you a long-term solution to restoring your valuable smile, while also helping to protect and maintain healthy bone, enabling you to retain the natural shape of your face.
