Benefits of Dental Implants
The benefits of having a dental implant placed can be significant to your oral health, how you chew, and your aesthetic. Whether you are new to a missing tooth, have many missing teeth, or have been missing teeth for years, we can rebuild and provide you a permanent replacement tooth. At Pine Belt Periodontics, PLLC, we can review the information specific to the patient and then create a detailed treatment plan designed to fit your needs.
A dental implant is different from any other type of dental restoration. It is not a replacement tooth, bridge, or denture, rather, a dental implant is a device that allows us to reestablish the connection between a replacement tooth and your jawbone. The implant is a new root system. This is why we tell our patients that with a dental implant we are doing more than just placing a prosthetic, we are rebuilding the entire structure from the base.
How is rebuilding the structure a benefit over just replacing the structure?
The benefit of rebuilding versus replacing may be larger than you think. A dental implant is a device we use to rebuild the missing structure. The benefits include:
We recommend replacing missing teeth with dental implants because it provides the next best option to your natural tooth. Our patients find that they are able to forget that they ever lost teeth to begin with, and forgetting it’s there means a job well done.
The first step in receiving a dental implant is meeting with a member of our team. We can review your needs and create a plan that is right for you. For more information, contact our Hattiesburg office at (601) 255-9929.
