Introducing Permanent Tooth Replacement

A single missing tooth, or one that will soon need to be extracted, may make you reluctant to smile. Gaps can be embarrassing. Not just because of how they look, but because of functional problems. They can affect your ability to eat and speak normally. Overall, they can drain your self-confidence. But there’s a solution that will give you back all the beauty and function of a healthy smile—plus give you a big confidence boost. No other tooth replacement option looks more natural or is made to last as long as a dental implant.

When you see how we can restore your quality of life with a dental implant in New Albany, MS, you’ll wonder why you didn’t get one sooner! While dental bridges use surrounding teeth as anchors opening the door to unnecessary tooth damage and decay, dental implants are able to restore complete function, natural-looking esthetics, and even bone health while leaving adjacent teeth untouched. As experienced general dentists guided by supplemental advanced education in dental implants, we have the technical knowledge and passion for esthetics to offer you the best results.

Three Steps to Spectacular Teeth

Consultation And Exam

Most of our patients are candidates for dental implants or can be after one or two common procedures. We determine whether or not you qualify during a personalized, one-on-one consultation here in our office. It’s important to understand that treatment for a dental implant in New Albany, MS is specific to you. No two cases are alike. During that initial visit we’ll get to know you, discuss your smile goals, and come up with a tailored plan to help you achieve them.

Part of the consultation is a thorough dental exam. This includes taking high-definition 3D images of your mouth using our in-house cone beam CT equipment. CBCT technology enables us to get a full picture of what’s going on beneath your teeth and gums—all with a fraction of the radiation output of conventional equipment. With these images we can design the customized stackable guide that helps us deliver a precise, predictable implant placement procedure.

Guided Implant Placement

Our first priority for your placement appointment is making you comfortable. We achieve this through a combination of sedation and our practice atmosphere. When you’re ready, our New Albany, MS dental implant team will perform any preliminary procedures you may need, such as a tooth extraction. If you have some minor jawbone deterioration, we can also remedy it at this stage through regenerative bone grafting. This is sometimes needed when you have a tooth that’s been missing for an extended time.

We begin placement itself by putting your customized guide over your gums. This helps us place your implant at just the right angle for a comfortable fit and reliable performance. We then insert a screw-like implant post into your jaw through the guide. Our doctors make extensive use of Nobel Biocare products—implants, guides, and planning technology—to give you the best results imaginable. Nobel is widely considered one of the top manufacturers in the industry. Your durable, biocompatible post will anchor a new dental crown. We’ll give you a temporary one the very same day, so you won’t have to wait to enjoy life with a full smile again!

Restoration of Your Teeth—and Your Life

Your implant site will heal for several months following placement. This is a process that can’t be rushed. It’s a critical part of restoring your smile. The implant actually undergoes osseointegration—a permanent fusing with your body—during this time. While you recover, you’ll have your temporary restoration to provide all the normal functions of a real tooth. Once healing is completed, you’ll come back to receive your final crown. This will be completely customized to fit you and match the color of the surrounding teeth. You’ll leave our office with a fully restored and seamless smile—and be ready to take your life back!
