Restore Your Smile With Dental Implants
Get a confident, functional smile with dental implants from Lakewood Dental in Batesville, MS. Dr. Thompson and Dr. Amann know the impact missing teeth have on your confidence and oral health. Dental implants are a permanent solution to restore your smile and enhance your life.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are titanium posts placed into the jawbone that act as artificial tooth roots. These posts fuse with the bone over time, providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth.
Dental implants support individual crowns, bridges, or even full dentures. These treatments give you a natural-looking and functional solution.
At Lakewood Dental, we prioritize your comfort, safety, and satisfaction. Our team combines advanced technology, extensive experience, and a personalized approach for great service and even better results.
We strive to create a positive and anxiety-free environment, ensuring your journey to a restored smile is smooth and rewarding.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants from our Batesville office give you more than a great smile. You'll enjoy benefits in your health and daily life, too!
Dental implants resemble natural teeth, restoring your smile and improving your facial appearance.
Unlike removable dentures, dental implants eliminate the fear of slurred speech or mumbled words. You'll feel confident no matter who you're talking to.
Restored Chewing Ability
With dental implants, you can enjoy your favorite foods without discomfort or restrictions. They give you a strong and stable bite, so you won't have to change your diet.
Durable & Long-Lasting
With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. That makes them a reliable and cost-effective solution for tooth replacement.
Preserve Jawbone Health
Implants help stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and preserving your facial structure.
What to Expect From
Dental procedures can feel scary, but knowing what to expect can ease your anxiety. Our team personalizes your treatment to help you feel comfortable along the way.
Consultation & Treatment Plan
The journey to a restored smile with dental implants starts with an initial consultation at our Batesville office. During your visit, Dr. Thompson or Dr. Amann will assess your oral health and discuss your goals. They'll use this information to create a personalized treatment plan.
Your evaluation may include X-rays, 3D scans, or impressions of your teeth to determine the best placement of the dental implants. Dr. Thomson or Dr. Amann will address your concerns so you feel informed and confident about your care.
Implant Placement & Osseointegration
Once we finish your treatment plan, we'll schedule the surgical placement of the dental implants. Dr. Thompson or Dr. Amann will insert small titanium posts into the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort.
After placing your implants, a process called osseointegration takes place. Over several months, the jawbone fuses with the implants, creating a strong and stable foundation. This integration process helps the implants become a permanent part of your jawbone. That means you'll have durability and stability for the replacement teeth.
Abutment Placement & Final Restoration
Once osseointegration is complete, the next step is the placement of abutments. Your dentist will attach these connectors to the dental implants above the gumline. The abutments are anchors for the final restoration, whether an individual crown, bridge, or denture.
Our dental team will customize the replacement teeth to match the appearance of your natural teeth. This ensures a seamless and natural-looking result.
Finally, Dr. Thompson or Dr. Amann will attach the final restoration to the abutments. With your new smile in place, you'll experience improved aesthetics, functionality, and confidence.
The dental implant process will vary depending on individual cases. That's why it's essential to consult with qualified implant dentists for personalized guidance and treatment.
