A Dental Implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental Implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
Perhaps the closest restorations to natural teeth, dental implants are designed to replace both the crown and root of a missing tooth. The dentists at Wellpoint Dental in Meridian have the ability to use dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth.
Implants can be used to support an implant restoration, which can be a denture, a crown, or a bridge. The procedure takes several months to complete, but when in place, dental implants will restore beauty, strength, function, and support to your mouth and smile. If you are missing any of your natural teeth, please call our office today to learn more about the benefits of implant dentistry. We look forward to completing your smile!
