Dental Implants

One of the most natural looking options in restorative dentistry is the dental implant. Whether one or many teeth need replacement, dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. Unlike dentures that must be removed or bridges that adhere to other teeth, implants are connected to your own jaw, making them as close to natural teeth as possible. At Meridian Campus Family Dental, we are happy to offer this beautiful option in smile restoration to our patients.

Dental implants are completed using a titanium post that is secured into the jaw bone. The post serves as the “root” of the new tooth and bonds with the bone, creating a fused connection. Once the post is secure, a natural looking crown is adhered to the post, creating your new tooth. You now have a tooth that looks and functions just like your natural teeth – you can eat the foods you love and give the world a big grin again.

Complete Implant Dentistry

While some people use implants to replace a few teeth that have been lost over the years, implant dentistry can also be used to create a complete set of new teeth. Using new imaging technology has improved this option, making it easier to place the teeth to fit naturally into your bite. Once all the new posts are fused to your jaw and covered with naturally shaped crowns, you will have a full smile that will make you look years younger and give you back the freedom of having your own permanent teeth.

Teeth Replacement

The most common use for dental implants is teeth replacement. Instead of using a dental bridge that needs to adhere to other teeth or a partial denture that can fall out, an implant is a permanent new tooth. This is the most desirable option for many people, allowing them to have a new tooth that looks and feels like their own teeth.

Implant dentistry has become a popular option in restorative dentistry. However, not everyone is a viable candidate for dental implants. Contact our office today to make your appointment with Dr. Carpenter and find out if dental implants are the right option to replace your missing teeth.
