Dental Implants in
Meridian

When a person loses a permanent tooth, seeking out an effective replacement is very important. But this involves replacing more than just the actual tooth structure itself. Each tooth, whether it is natural or artificial, requires support to remain securely in place and perform its necessary tasks. For natural teeth, this support comes in the form of its roots. But for artificial teeth, dental implants are used to provide support.

Dental Implants in Meridian

For all intents and purposes, dental implants serve the same functions as natural tooth roots. The best way to describe a dental implant is to picture a small titanium rod inserted in the jawbone. Attached to this rod is a supporting post that secures a single replacement tooth or multiple replacement teeth in the form of a dental bridge. In some cases, multiple dental implants might work together to support a complete set of dentures. The dental implants of today are more effective than ever and are one of the most effective methods for replacing lost or missing teeth.

Although there is a recovery period associated with the installation of dental implants, they will still feel incredibly natural once healing is complete. Our dental implants fuse with natural bone material over time. When this occurs, the implants will feel even more natural and provide stronger support. With these considerations in mind, dental implants are usually considered to be the optimal option for supporting artificial teeth.

At McMillan Family Dental, we offer All-On-4 implants as our leading dental implant option. Traditionally you would have to use one dental implant as an attachment point for one replacement tooth. So if you had multiple missing teeth, would you have to get a dental implant for each replacement tooth? With All-On-4 implants, you don’t have to! All-On-4 uses four strategically placed dental implants that can support up to a full set of replacement teeth. They are placed.
